Our Koa wood bangle makes a simple and elegant statement that is an easy choice for any occasion. The stainless is a light weight and sturdy foundation to highlight our very best curly Koa wood. The Koa inlay is coated with a resin that protects it from the elements so you can wear our bangle with confidence...we call it life-proof. The "curly" grain Koa that we use is what really sets these apart...certainly the best on the market. The grain appears to move and shimmer in the light and is truly stunning.
The Koa tree is truly the king of the Hawaiian woods and lends itself to create everything that is wonderful about the Hawaiian Islands and its culture. From the ancient Hawaiian outrigger canoes to the spawning of the first ancient surfboards and ukulele, Koa deserves its place at the heart of the Hawaiian culture. Because of its amazing beauty, it adorns the palace walls and is one of the most expensive woods on the planet. Koa literally means warrior in the hawaiian language and has come to symbolize strength, fearlessness, bravery, bold action, and the warrior spirit.
