HOONGI - Carved in Sugilite stone and embellished with Australian Lightning Ridge Opal, and Ruby pieces from Vietnam. Hand made by Jeromy Van Riel.

Glorious carving and beautiful materials - this is a wonderful pendant if you are after something unique, a piece of jewellery like no other - this will be with you for a lifetime!

A stunning and visually powerful pendant carved from Sugilite - a beautifully coloured and nuanced stone. This piece depicts two people  engaging in a hongi - a traditional Māori greeting where the noises are pressed lightly together and for a moment in time two people share their breath.

HOONGI has been polished to a soft matte finish - perfect for this particular piece of stone. This final treatment highlights the changes in structure and colour in the stone.
