WHAT’S IN STORE
Jewelry display chronicles history
The evolution of Hawaiian heirloom jewelry is chronicled in Philip Rickard Honolulu’s Hawaiian Heirloom Jewelry Museum, now open on the third floor of Royal Hawaiian Center in Building C, adjacent to Rickard’s flagship factory store.
The opening of the museum also marks the company’s 25-year anniversary at the center.
Displays will show how the jewelry, which started as a cottage industry in the 1800s, has evolved through many forms and technical transformations, and the monarchy’s role, particularly that of Queen Liliuokalani, in establishing this island tradition. The museum is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, with guided tours offered at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. weekdays. Self-guided tours are free; admission for guided tours is $3 for adults, $1 for kamaaina, and free for children younger than 12. For group tours, call 924-7972 ext. 27.
