Aiea, HI (PRWEB) July 4, 2010
Hawaiian jewelry manufacturer, Designs 'N Gold, adds Honolulu police badge jewelry to its lines of jewelry for Honolulu's finest. The Honolulu police badge jewelry line includes Hawaiian bracelets with miniature Honolulu police badge shields, Honolulu police badge rings and pendants. The Honolulu police badge jewelry includes the Officer's rank and badge number or a special sentiment.
The badge of the Honolulu Police Department is unique, for its design embodies traditions and ideals influenced by the historical evolution of police in Hawaii, spanning a period of time beginning with the monarchy, through annexation of the Islands as a Territory of the United States of America and eventual Statehood. The one consistent emblem of Police authority through all periods of Hawaiian History is the Pulo'ulo'u (The Kapu Stick). In acient times, the Pulo'ulo'u was placed at the gateway or door of the Ali'i's home or other possessions, at sacred sites, and cities of refuge to which a person seeking safety might flee. The Kapu stick also signified prohibition and was the ultimate symbol of authority to the ancients. It was the Pulo'ulo'u that King Kauikeaouli (Kamehameha III) awarded to the first constables as a symbol of his royal authority in their office. It has remained the primary symbol of police authority this past century and a half. The shield design traditionally used by law enforcement agencies is a symbol of authority and is representative of the official emblem of the United States. The eagle as construed in this sense is also symbolic of offering protection for the people and their rights as guaranteed under the Constitution and the Bill of Rights of the United States of America.
“We are so pleased to be able to offer this Honolulu police badge jewelry to those Honolulu police officers that serve and protect our community," commented Colette Aoki, the owner of Designs N Gold.
