Ola Wai Water Trio Necklace
$230.00 – $345.00
Ola Wai Water Trio Necklace is elegantly organic, with three undulating loops joined in unison on your neck. The loops change with each surface angle, like water does as it moves. Wai is symbolic of home, the bosom, the source.
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.”
