Our Māhealani koa earrings honor the romantic elegance of the Hawaiian Moon of which she is named.
A very common setting under the clear tropical sky with the moon glowing full and bright. New love blossoms with lovers holding hands and walking on the sand. The cool ocean waves wash gently around their feet with the night air full of the fragrance of plumeria flowers. This a classic view of island romance that is so deeply embedded into everyone's minds as spoken through Hawaiian poetry.
