I used the search, and didn't see that anyone started a thread about personal Tiki Jewelry Collections. Jewelry can be such a big and widespread field, such as the material its made of,
examples are;
Silver, Gold, silvertone, goldtone, wood, bone, ivory, lava, plastic, bakelite, ceramic/plaster, glass etc.,etc...
And Jewelry can include;
Rings, pendants, necklaces, earrings, tie tacks, cuff links...

I thought it might make for an interesting thread
So pull out that camera and ring, and show off your tiki bling!

Here are my Silver pieces. The left ring and center necklace are from my friend Wes at http://www.badassring.com. This guy doesn't skimp on the silver, and they have some hefty weight to them.
The shrunken "devil" head(used to be devilish) on right was ebayed years ago, and it used to have spiked horns coming out of his head. I didn't like horns, so I dremeled them off as cleanly as I could. lol, I like it better now.

Heres my contribution, starting at the 12:00 position is a vintage tie clip that looks (to me) vaguely like the Kon Tiki logo.
Next and to the right is a vintage strange Hawaiian bug man with antennae pin.
Below him is a Ku style (Coco Jos? it looks like one of their lava pieces but tiny) money clip.
At the bottom the only non vintage pieces Moai cuff links that Otto gave me many years ago so maybe they are vintage by now?
Next; very cool Don the Beachcomber driftwood logo cuff links.
Just above, Trader Vics cuffs very nice and with their great attention to detail you see the front and back of the menehune/s.
Lastly a beautiful vintage gold Ku cuff link and tie clasp, I have seen newer silver versions of these but they look smaller compared to these.
Ive found all of these picking around thrifts or swapmeets over the years so you can either say Im lucky or have been monumentally wasting my time.
Sorry for the crappy photo, these things are tiny and scanning them did not work out.

Man, those are sweet pieces, Bosko. Thanks for posting them. I had no idea those various cufflinks existed.

I'm not sure they are tiki, but I'll repost these. Any information is greatly appreciated. There aren't any marks on any piece.

I have this old Trader Vic's style brooch/pin in my collection. It's pretty big, about 3 1/2 inches tall and 1 inch wide.

Can anyone confirm that this is a TV piece? I don't recall ever seeing a full bodied figure or one in color used by Trader Vics on anything.
Experts, what do you think?

8ft,

The image design is of course based on the Covarrubias drawing in the Arts of the South Seas book.




There was one at the Trader Vic's in the International Market Place.




Seems like I have seen other full figured ones at Trader Vic's as well.....
