Aka’ie’ie – Beautifully Crafted

More than just a piece of Jewellery

Aka’ie’ie means “BEAUTIFUL” in our Cook Island language. It’s an expression used commonly from our sister Island, Aitutaki. It is a way of expressing how you feel about someone. Every woman is valuable and unique, and has an individual story that Aka’ie’ie can help you tell. Each jewellery handcrafted by Vaiana George, is lovingly handmade and can be personalized based on your direction, making it simple and beautiful for you to tell your story and keep it close to your heart.  Vaiana says “It’s a gift to Aka’ie’ie someone and a blessing to receive something so beautiful such as this”.  

Aka’ie’ie is giving as it connects us to others.  

Aka’ie’ie pays tribute to Vaiana’s late sister, Angela.  A beautiful woman who was an inspiration to Vaiana who then became in love with producing unique jewelry that gave Vaiana a connection to her sister. Every time Vaiana creates a piece, it reminds her of Angela. This is her story – her Aka’ie’ie to connect with others.  Though Vaiana’s jewelry is beautifully simple, each piece embodies what’s meaningful to her and connects you to her most precious memories, people, and milestones.  She creates pieces as unique, beautiful, and special as her story. Vaiana says “I am giving a piece of me away to you”.  It’s a lovely gesture as it ties back to the meaning of Aka’ie’ie. Giving is an emotion.

The true spirit of giving is doing for others with no expectation of gain.  Giving means different things to different people and that’s how it should be. When someone from our family Aka’ie’ie their daughter or son with a gift, it’s treasured and worn with gratitude. The gift came from their heart and soul.
