Happy Birthday to Queen Liliʻuokalani


Yesterday, Hawaii celebrated the birthday of our late Queen Liliʻuokalani (September 2, 1838 – November 11, 1917).  She was our last monarch and only queen regnant of the Kingdom of Hawaii.

Hawaiian Heirloom Jewelry’s history dates back to England during the Victorian Era, when Queen Kapiolani and Princess Liliʻuokalani attended Queen Victoria’s Jubilee in 1887. At the Jubilee they were presented with precious solid gold bracelets, with their names cut out in Old English Lettering filled with black enamel. The Queen and the Princess were so enraptured with their unique gifts that they had similar bracelets made for other Royal members upon their return to Hawaii.

Thus, a legacy was created and it lives on today, stronger than ever. Hawaiian jewelry is often given to celebrate milestones; birthdays, graduations, weddings and anniversaries,  an heirloom that is passed on from generation to generation.
