Kukui Nut Hawaiian Lei- Hibiscus

A lei is a common symbol of love, friendship, celebration, honor or greeting. In essence, it is a symbol of Aloha. In ancient Hawaii, wearing a lei represented wealth, royalty and rank. It is also associated with hula, religion and geography.

Lei Kukui are historically worn to respectfully honor deities during ceremonies or performances; a tradition extending back to ancient times.

Perhaps a more recent tradition, is kukui's association with education.

Since Kukui is a source of light, it has come to symbolize enlightenment, knowledge, and learning. You usually see these heavily adorned on your favorite graduate. 

Handmade and hand painted in Hawaii, these Kukui Nut Hawaiian Lei's are a great gift for the special person in your life.

This '32" wooden lei necklace is traditionally used to celebrate a graduation, wedding, birthday, or any event worth celebrating.

The last photo does not showcase this handprinted hibiscus kukui nut lei. It is only to give you an idea of the size of the lei when worn by an adult.
