Ola Wai Water Rings


Ola Wai Water Rings are minimalist and unpredictable. The shank morphs with each turn, an ever changing surface. Wai is water, symbolic of home, the bosom, the source.

Wai (water)

Ola has many meanings in Hawaiian, among them are life, health, well-being; alive, living; heal, survive, thrive. Each design in the Ola Collection is inspired by something that sustained and helped the Hawaiians thrive.

Water symbolises the source, the bosom, life. In many cultures it reflects fertility, purity and wisdom. While fresh water is essential to plants, animals and people, to Hawaiians wai was more than just sustenance. As an island kingdom, water was life. Concerns over protecting and accessing water shaped social structures, created land divisions, and shaped religious beliefs. Kānāwai was followed – a rule of law that dictated the “equal sharing of water.”


Part of the Ola Wai collection, Ola Wai Water Rings are symbolic of the essential element, water.
