Known as "The Royal Lei," the maile lei is given to show one's honor and respect. While the maile lei was highly valued by the ali'i (Hawaiian royalty), the maile lei was worn by people of all classes for many special occasions. In Hawaiian culture, the maile lei is the most traditional wedding lei. In ancient times, the Kahuna (Hawaiian priest) would use the maile lei to bind the hands of the bride and groom. The maile lei symbolizes friendship as well as love.
We included blue opal inlay in many of our Hawaiian inspired jewelry collection. The color of the opal jewelry changes depending on the angle of its light reflection. When the opal is rotated, the color shifts between the light sky blue and the sparkling clear ocean blue.
