Maile leaves in the delicate butterflyʻs scrollwork symbolize her legacy "in both hula and music." At the same time, the inclusion of the hapuʻu fern reminds her that wherever she sings Hawaiian music, she is home in Hawaiʻi.

Natalie tells us, "We all know the butterfly symbolizes growth and learning how to spread our wings. And learning how to fly and then taking flight. Isnʻt that what the GRAMMYs are about?"
Creation of Natalie Ai Kamauʻu's GRAMMYs Jewelry
Typically, a collection of this caliber would take weeks to months to create. Still, our team dedicated our time to creating these pieces in 2 just weeks. From sketches to final designs, our team poured their heart and created every piece with Aloha in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi. It's the first time Maui Divers Jewelry has made a tiara as part of a signature GRAMMY collection. We were honored to create it for such an inspirational person like Natalie.

Mahalo from Natalie Ai Kamauʻu
"I cannot even find the words to express my gratitude because sitting in the meeting and just seeing drawings was one thing, but seeing the pieces literally come to life, and again, the care, the concern.
It is Aloha that's in each piece, and I could never dreamed this because I could have never dreamed this. This is so amazing, and it's such a great honor. This whole ensemble is everything, and it's making my GRAMMY dreams come true."
