Hawaiian Plumeria Jewelry

Updated on July 21, 2014

Visit Hawaii for Plumeria Jewelry or Shop Online

I first visited Hawaii on a business trip in 2002 and although I wanted to bring home something to remember Hawaii, I had a limited time to shop. I stopped by a small shop near my hotel and found a beautiful plumeria necklace and earrings. I had seen this beautiful plumeria tree near my hotel and decided this would be the perfect gift for myself.

In 2006 my husband and I were able to return to Hawaii for a great vacation, so I decided to buy myself a bracelet to go with my necklace and earrings. Plumeria jewelry is very popular in Hawaii and easily found in most jewelry and tourist shops.

I love my plumeria jewelry and wear it in the summer and when I travel to warmer climates. This year when I pulled out my jewelry to take on our trip to Florida, I was very disappointed to find one of my earrings missing. My first impulse was to go to my husband and tell him we needed to go back to Hawaii so I could buy new earrings. He laughed, and although I was only partly kidding, I knew I could probably find some earring to match online. In looking for the earrings online, I find there are many choices. Plumeria jewelry seems to be really popular in the online market too.

On this page I'm going to tell you a bit about the plumeria plant, show you my necklace and bracelet, and then ask for your help in choosing my earrings. Perhaps you'll even find a piece that you would like for yourself or a gift.

Cluster of Plumeria Flowers - Plumeria grow on Trees

The plumeria flowers are tropical flowers that are native to Central and South America, the Caribbean and Mexico. They have spread throughout the world and can be seen in many tropical areas.

The flowers are grown on round domed tree that can reach a height of 30 feet. Most often you see the flowers as white with yellow accents, but they can also be red, yellow, pink are multiple colors. Each cluster may contain from 50-200 blossoms.

In this photo you see a cluster of flowers blooming in The Butterfly House in Chesterfield, Missouri. The tropical climate that is kept inside this butterfly conservatory works well for the plumeria trees.

Three Plumeria Necklace - beautiful floral pendant

This three plumeria pendant is very similar to the one that I purchased on my first trip to Hawaii in 2002. I really like the three flowers hanging down on the pendant. It is one of my favorite pieces of summer jewelry.

Sterling Silver Plumeria Bracelet - delicate floral bracelet

When I returned to Hawaii on our second visit in 2006 I decided to purchase a bracelet to go with my pendant and earrings. This bracelet is made up of many small plumeria flowers. My bracelet is sterling silver, but it also comes in yellow or white gold.

Sterling Silver Plumeria Earrings - single flower earrings

I lost my original plumeria earrings that I purchased on my first trip to Hawaii. I think these beautiful stud earrrings will be the perfect replacement. They will work well with my plumeria pendant and bracelet.

Rhodium Plated Sterling Silver 9mm Plumeria Stud Earrings

Small and delicate these plumeria earrings will look great with the pendant and bracelet.

 

Do you like the earrings I'm considering? - I'd love your opinion

I was amazed at all of the different choices available for plumeria earrings. I'm leaning towards the stud earrings shown above but I could be swayed to choose another pair. Now that I've seen all the choices I'm not sure about size. The ones I'm leaning toward are 9mm, but I also see there are 12mm and 15 mm styles.Perhaps, I'll buy two different pairs. Could you help me decide? Please vote for your favorite earrings below.

      When I visited Hawaii (many moons ago...lol) I came home with a puka bead necklace, but these Plumeria pieces are gorgeous, as are the photos of the flower. I voted for the sterling silver stud earrings because all my jewelry is in silver tones -- my preference in jewelry. Even my wedding ring is white gold, which goes well with my silver jewelry. :)

      I was raised on Oahu and we had a plumeria tree in our backyard (white with yellow). I do have some plumeria jewelry: 3 sets of earrings. My favorite pair is silver and has 2 delicate chains with a pearl on one chain and a silver plumeria on the other.

      I don't, although my sister had a pair of dangle earrings that I always loved. I now think they were plumeria. All of the options you've shown here are beautiful. I love the necklace and bracelet you chose for yourself in Hawaii!
