Philip Rickard has dedicated much of his life to the study of the historical transitions of jewelry and has been particularly influenced by the Renaissance period in Europe.

After years of studying throughout Europe a compelling vision in 1971 brought Rickard to Hawaii where he opened his first retail location store in 1986 at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center.

After six years of research and documenting, in Hawaii and England, Philip Rickard published his book, “Hawaiian Heirloom Jewelry, A Lasting Remembrance”. In his work, he reveals the true history of the jewelry in the islands, and the then unknown history of Queen Liliu’okalani and her first bracelet that began the industry and traditions. 

Since then Philip Rickard has grown to be the Premiere Manufacturer of World Class Hawaiian Jewelry. This beautiful jewelry is made in many different gold colors and platinum which feature the deep carved scrolling patterns, rich enameled names, inlays, diamonds, and colored gemstones.
