Beautiful Kawakawa Pounamu from Hokitika in the South Island of New Zealand, Aotearoa.
The NZ pounamu in this pendant is certified by Ngai Tahu and comes with a certificate of authentication with its own unique traceability code. When entered online, the code attached to the carving identifies the origin and whakapapa (genealogy) of the stone.
Carved by Benjamin and bound by Marisa using black waxed thread with slip knots making the pendant easily adjustable in length.
The modern Toki is worn as a symbol of mana, strength, authority and leadership.
Our pounamu was blessed in its raw form before it was gifted to us. We handle each taonga with customary respect and every possible care.
