Description + Details
Step into the rich tapestry of Hawaiian culture, where inoa (names) hold a significance that transcends mere identification. In the enchanting realm of the islands, names are vessels of ancestral stories, connecting the present to a cherished past. Just as the stars guide the Polynesian voyagers across the vast ocean, each name weaves a narrative of heritage, love, and identity.
Embrace this legacy and your inoa with our custom-cutout Inoa necklace, crafted to evoke the essense of "mo'olelo" - the art of storytelling that flows through generations.
Our Inoa Personalized Cutout Necklace is crafted of 18k gold-filled or thick silver coated over a strong, gold brass base. Choose between script or old english font. The custom cut pendant is considered light-to-medium-weight and comes with our thin curb chain (seen in photo).

Please view our jewelry care best practices to ensure long-term wear. However, our 18k gold filled pieces are very strong and almost like gold. Note: If you live near any known areas with sulfur, please store your gold filled jewelry in an air-tight pouch. Airborne sulfur has been known to diminish and fade gold-filled jewelry.
About Gold Filled
Gold filled jewelry has a thicker coating of gold around the base material. This allows you to treat your bangle as a solid gold piece without much tarnish or wear. We still recommend treating your bangle with care for longevity and keeping away from lotions or oils for best shine!
Gold filled should remain away from high-sulfur environments. If you live on the Big Island, please store your jewelry in a sealed bag in order to prevent from sulfur-caused tarnishing.
While gold-filled is a superior alternative to gold-plated items, it is not the same as solid gold. Gold-filled items are subject to scratching against hard surfaces, metals, or items it may come in contact with often. You will be able to tell between scratching and tarnishing when your bangle shows silver (scratching) vs. bronze/green (tarnishing). Please take a look at our care guide for best practices for taking care of your jewelry.
