The ring is beautifully crafted with the Hawaiian koa, which is a exotic wood that originates from the Big Island of Hawai'i. Different parts of the island yields a distinctive hue to the color of the wood. The beautiful colors ranges from yellow or greenish-yellow, through orange, brown, and red, to almost black, and hues of different colors can be derived from a single trunk. In the Hawaiian language "koa" means "warrior" which symbolizes strength, fearlessness and bravery. From the ancient Hawaiian outrigger canoes to the birth of the first ancient surfboards and ukulele, the koa wood deserves more than ever be a widely recognized as a symbol of prestige and coloring.
According to Hawaiian myth, the hula goddess, Laka, is beloved as Hula's guardian diety. Laka, said to possess healing powers, is worshipped as the goddess of "calm and happiness". The hibiscus flower, which Laka loved, is the national symbol of liveliness and happiness. The brilliant hibiscus is used here to symbolize the flowering of love between two people.
Each piece has been hand engraved, so other rings with the same design will differ in unique ways, making each piece truly one of a kind.
Hawaiian jewelry history dates back to England during the Victorian Era, when Queen Kapiolani and Princess Liliuokalani attended Queen Victoria's Jubilee in 1887. At the Jubilee they were presented with 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.

A Beautiful Ring
Bought this for my husband to replace his temporary wedding band from our elopement. This ring is beautiful, the details are very finely exceuted. The wood inlay is warm and perfectly compliments the shimmer and shine of the silver. My husband says that fit is very comfortable, snug and lightweight, yet substantial enough to look and feel like a statement piece. Customer service was awesome too, after placing my order online I realized I had ordered the wrong size. I sent a quick email the next day to ask if I could change the size and within a couple hours I had a response and confirmation of the order change. I would highly recommend buying from Happy Laulea!
