Charms of Aloha

“Aloha” means much more than hello or good-bye. The literal meaning of aloha is “the breath of life”.  Alo = presence, Ha = breath. Its deeper meaning however, exposes its latent sacredness.

On a spiritual level it is an acknowledgment of the divinity that dwells within everything. Aloha means to hear what is not said, to see what cannot be seen and to know the unknowable. Aloha is a way of living, a way of treating each other with love & respect and a joyful sharing of life energy. When you ‘live aloha’, you live in harmony.

The Charms of Aloha celebrate this attitude towards life. They reflect an appreciation for nature and all of its creatures, particularly those found here in Hawaii. We hope they serve to remind you of the beauty of your Hawaiian experience.

The Charms of Aloha line is created in solid sterling silver, designed on Maui and made in the USA.
