The indigenous people who inhabit the islands of Polynesia are called Polynesians.
Hawaii was settled at least 800 years ago with the voyage of Polynesians from the Society Islands.

Hawaiian engraved jewelry has history dating back to 1887, in celebration of her Golden Jubilee commemorating her fifty-year reign, Queen Victoria presented Hawaii’s Princess Lili’uokalani with a solid gold bracelet.
According to English fashion culture, her name was engraved in old English lettering and enameled in black. The bracelet became one of Lili’uokalani’s most treasured pieces and it was beautiful.
The enameled gold jewelry created a stir among Hawaii’s Rolyals. The distinct English carvings were reproduced incorporating various Island designs. Over time, Plumeria, Maile leaves, Kaleikini, Princess, Bamboo, Quilt and other significant designs of Hawaiian origin have found their way into Hawaiian Heirloom Jewelry. Today the 14 Karat Club located in Honolulu celebrates these beautiful designs and incorporates them into the Hawaiian engraved gold jewelry as a prime manufacturer of extraordinary quality.
A prime example of artistry used is the name Kuuipo iwhoch is of Hawaiian origin and means "My Sweetheart".
