Turtle Pendant by Honolulu Jewelry Company Review


Last week, I received an email inviting me to review a Turtle Pendant by Honolulu Jewelry Company. I was sent 2 cute turtle pendants -- 1 for review and another one to be given away to a lucky reader. Well, the pendant has arrived!





Product Description

A sterling silver petroglyph style Hawaiian turtle pendant. 16mm high (approx. 2/3"). 18" box chain included. Lifetime guarantee.

Here's a little something about Hawaiian Jewelry

The history of Hawaiian jewelry began in the late 1800's when King Kalakaua visited the Royal Courts of England. He was then presented with a gift for Princess Liliuokalani at Queen Victoria's Jubilee. The solid gold design was simple with intricate Old English lettering, which spelled the princess' name. The bracelet symbolized enduring friendship between the two nations. Liliuokalani was very impressed with the style and requested more be crafted for other members of her family. Goldsmiths throughout the land were then commissioned to learn this art of jewelry crafting. At the time of Prince Albert's death, bracelets were made in his remembrance by request of Queen Victoria and Queen Liliuokalani. Enameled lettering was used in reflecting the loss of their beloved Prince.

The tradition has since continued throughout the generations. Hawaiian heirloom jewelry has been given as a gifts for special occasions such as birthdays, graduations and weddings. Heirloom jewelry will last a lifetime, and is often passed from generations. It is considered an honor to receive such a precious, personalized gift.

Today, Hawaiian heirloom jewelry is hand crafted, as it has always been. Although Hawaiian bracelets are the most traditional style of heirloom jewelry, more variations have surfaced over the years. You can find rings, vertical pendants, horizontal necklaces, and even id bracelets, each with their own unique design and personalization. With this amazing craft, it is no wonder that this tradition has lasted and grown through the years.

My Thoughts

The pendant is simply adorable. It's beautifully crafted and by the looks of it, precious time and extra care were spent to make it this beautiful. The design is plain and simple, but it looks stunning. It's great to use every day and on special occasions and would easily match any outfit.
