Hawaiian Scroll or Heirloom Jewelry has flourished through the years since Queen Victoria gave a gold scroll bracelet to Queen Lili'uokalani in the 1800s. Throughout the years this design has been adopted and transformed to represent Hawaiian culture.
The pineapple (hala kahiki) has become one of the strongest symbols of Hawaiian culture, but surprisingly it is not native to Hawaii, but introduced in the early 1800s. Its Hawaiian name hala kahiki even translates to “plant of Tahitiâ€?or “foreign fruit.â€?Hawaii is one of the major crop producers of pineapple in the world.
