Iao Kapu Ring
- 18K Gold Plated Brass
This ring was designed along the rushing waters of Iao Valley, a sacred location on the island of Maui. Kapu in the Hawaiian language means sacred, or forbidden. Iao Valley was long believed by Hawaiians to hold sacred meaning and was Kapu for all but the Hawaiian Royalty. Some of the highest chiefs are believed to have been buried in non disclosed areas of the Valley. Iao Valley is considered by many to be a place of high spiritual value.
