Pīkake Choker Necklace

Pīkake, pī.kake n. 1. The Arabian jasmine (Jasminum sambac), introduced from India, a shrub or climber, with rounded, dark-green leaves and small, white, very fragrant flowers used for leis. Since Princess Ka-ʻiu-lani was fond of both these flowers and her peacocks (pīkake), the same name was given the flowers. (Neal 680.)

Honoring the beauty, and capturing the charm of a vintage Hula girl. Lahaʻole has started the Pīkake renaissance, and brought this beauty to modern times. A recreation of Mingʻs ivory Pīkake jewelry, a long sought after Hawaiian heirloom handed down from generations.

The pīkake used for this piece are our largest flowers available, resembling the actual pīkake flower. Flowers are strung on 14k gold filled wire, and finished with 14k gold filled components. Made with mother of pearl.
