Sterling Silver Aloha Collection "'Olu'olu" Pendant

Write a Review

ʻOluʻolu means to be gentle as if you were holding a brand new baby, but you need to make sure that you are strong and sturdy enough that you won't drop the baby. The design includes the small triangles in the middle with a silver half moon inside that represents the diapers of a baby. The swirl lines above and below represent the gentleness and gracefulness that you need while holding the baby. The black box lining the edge represents the strength you need to make sure you are sturdy and won't drop the baby. This whole design represents that balance between strength (in Hawaiian, referred to as Kū) and gracefulness (in Hawaiian, referred to as Hina).

Designed by local Hawaiian artist, Kamaka Pili,  the Kamaka Pili® Aloha Collection derives from the messages of the late great Auntie Pilahi Pākī, who created a simple way to understand Aloha to a deeper level.
