Did you know that each of our jewelry designs has meaning? From our beautiful plumeria-flower jewelry (symbolism: new beginnings) to cute dolphin jewelry (symbolism: playfulness & life) to octopus jewelry (symbolism: intelligence and rebirth), each of our jewelry pieces holds deep meaning and symbolism. So, allow us to introduce yet another symbolic embellishment - Maui Jewelry!
Maui is the cultural hero and creator of the Hawaiian Island. Maui wasn’t a deity. He was more of a folk hero, according to Polynesian mythology. The origin of Maui varies from culture to culture. Still, many of his deeds and accomplishments remain similar. He is one of the most popular demigods who was believed to be an ancient chief in Hawaiian tales.
Historical Significance of Maui
Maui symbolizes the connection between its wearer and the ocean. In Hawaiian culture, wearing Maui jewelry symbolizes strength, energy, and prosperity. According to some traditions, Maui jewelry brings its wearer good fortune and a safe journey over oceans.
Further, in some cultures, it is believed that Maui jewelry brings the qualities of Maui to the wearer.
In Hawaiian culture, Maui jewelry, especially the Maui hook necklace, is more than just an embellishment. It relies on modern jewelry designs to keep alive the Hawaiian lifestyle. According to a tale, part of the wearer’s spirit is transferred into this piece of Hawaiian jewelry. Passing these jewelry pieces down the generations represents a spiritual link to all the family members who went before.
For all these reasons, it is important for the buyer to respect the jewelry’s cultural significance, regardless of whether you buy a Maui necklace or earrings.
