Personalizing Hawaiian Bangle or Bracelet - Your Name In Hawaiian

In 1893 Queen Liliuokalani gifted Aloha Oe bracelet to Zoe Atkinson, headmistress at an all-girls school adjacent to the lolani Palace. After seeing the bracelet on Zoe, the schoolgirls went to their mothers hoping for a gold bangle of their own. But when they had the bracelets made, their mothers chose to put daughters' names on them in place of “Aloha Oe”. The daughters eventually handed them down to their daughters… It was during this time that many of the customs surrounding Hawaiian Heirloom Jewelry were born.

These traditions still stand, and mothers will typically wear their children's names and/or the heirlooms that had been passed down to them from their mother or grandmother.

The word “Kuuipo” often features on Philip Rickard bracelets. This term of endearment means “sweetheart” in Hawaiian. But for custom orders this is often replaced with a chosen name or a Hawaiian phrase.

There are two ways to translate your name into Hawaiian. The most common technique is to "transliterate" (phonetically translate) a non-Hawaiian word into the Hawaiian language. The second way to derive a name is to use the root or meaning of a name as a source of translation. Please call when ordering to get translations if your name does not appear in the compilation. If you have a favorite phrase or motto, we'll be happy to translate it for you.
