Liam and Rachel, a young Manhattan couple, were already dating seriously for some time when they booked their first big vacation together as a couple: a week-long getaway in Hawaii. They bought swimsuits, packed their vacation essentials, and headed off for that string of natural gems in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
It was only the second night of their stay when Liam had a strange, but compelling idea. He would propose to Rachel, right here in Hawaii. There could be no better backdrop to the big question than this tropical paradise, with the sun sinking into the impossibly blue ocean and everyday worries and concerns left far behind. There was just one problem: He had no engagement ring. Although he felt confident in choosing a ring Rachel would love, this was Hawaii, not Los Angeles or New York. Where would he find a Hawaii jeweler that could provide him with a simple, high-quality engagement ring for the big moment?
Because of the romantic nature of the island itself, Hawaii jewelry shops have become experts at handling these last-minute engagement ring requests. Nearly every island of the archipelago has a boutique where couples can find the perfect Hawaii engagement ring. Some of these shops carry classic American-style engagement rings, while others specialize in authentic, traditional Hawaiian engagement rings and jewelry, while many carry both styles. On Kailua Kona, tour guides whose clients are falling in love with the island itself are told to visit Royal Hawaiian Heritage Jewelry, a boutique that carries fine jewelry with authentic Hawaiian motifs. In The Tropics, on Hawaii Island, stocks souvenir-style jewelry that is more authentic and classier than the typical souvenir shop trinkets. Finally, Na Hoku, in the Kona Marketplace, is a tourist destination and landmark in its own right—the jewelry shop has been here since 1924. A ring from one of these shops with a gem the color of the Hawaiian ocean would make a perfect stand-in Hawaii engagement ring until the happy couple return home to more traditional stores.
But if you are looking for classic fine jewelry right here in Hawaii, try Big Island Jewelers on Kailua Kona. Specializing in custom fine jewelry design and ready-to-wear bridal jewelry, Big Island can find that perfect proposal ring for any vacationing couple. They are also the official jeweler of the Ironman Triathlon World Championship, so triumphant athletes will find the perfect jewelry pieces to celebrate their wins.
Nothing will recall the incredible look and feel of the sand beneath your feet and the shine of the sun on your hair like a genuine South Sea pearl. The Pearl Gallery, a small shop in Banyan Court Mall, is perhaps the most underrated secret Hawaii jewelry shop. With an incredible selection of pearls, from golden South Sea pearls to black Tahitian pearls, and a wide variety of jewelry pieces incorporating the gorgeous pearls, this shop is the perfect way to keep Hawaii with you always.
So if you, like Liam and Rachel, find yourself in the perfect setting for a proposal, Hawaii can provide you with everything you need to make the day of proposal unforgettable.
