The Royal Order of the Star of Oceania was created by King Kalakaua on December 16, 1886, and originated from his vision of a confederation of independent Polynesian nations. This Order was awarded to individuals for distinguished service to the sovereign in the promotion of Hawaii throughout the islands. There are 7 classes, Grand Cross, Grand Officer, Commander, Officer, Companion and two under grades of medals.

The Companion is the same size as the Officer, but has plain silver rays and does not have the surmounting crown. This award is work on the left lapel of a coat and is suspended by a pale green and white ribbon. The Lady Companion star is the same design, but is suspended from a bow of pale green and white ribbon. This class was conferred on 12 individuals, the subjects (limited to 75) paid an admittance fee of $50.

The Star of Oceania was conferred on 25 individuals by King Kalakaua, and was last awarded on July 26, 1890. This is the only order that King Kalakaua did not confer himself. The pale green ribbon is so pale, it often fades to white.
