Every greenstone necklace has a meaning and the styles are based on traditional New Zealand Maori artifacts in minature.

Choose from wide selection of carvings made by New Zealand artists or from our gallery of one-off custom greenstone necklaces that are permenently removed from our site once sold. Every piece is unique and different and we believe that a greenstone necklace is one of the most precious of gifts.

When the first white settlers arrived on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand they found that the Maori were using tough, hard and very beautiful green stone to make war weapons, cutting and carving tools and articles of personal adornment.

The Maori called the stone Pounamu, which liberally translated means Green Stone. The settlers, unaware of the fact that the stone was in fact Nephrite Jade, put the two words together and gave it the distinctive name - Greenstone - and it is still known in New Zealand by this name.

Surreal in its beauty, the Maori used this Greenstone in their carvings and as a Taonga (treasure).

Greenstone has become a New Zealand icon, its numerous natural uses making it a part of New Zealand heritage.

Only premium quality greenstone is used in these designs ensuring they are rich in colour.

Packaging is an important part of presenting this beautiful design. Every greenstone necklace is sent in a traditional Maori flax kete (presentation box) with a description of the unique design chosen. Every greenstone necklace is guaranteed.
