LAND LOVER - the perfect name for a Toki that displays a beautiful array of forest greens, earthy browns, subtle curves and carved by hand from gorgeous stone.
LAND LOVER is carved from a lovely piece of New Zealand Flower Jade, locally known as Marsden pounamu. This piece is suspended from a fine 4-plait black cord which can be adjusted with a couple of slip knots. Wear it exactly where you'd like!
LAND LOVER is a beautiful piece of traditional jewellery.
The toki, or adze, is a symbol of strength. The adze was a key survival tool, so the owner of a good one was believed to be strong and powerful. They were used to carve ocean-going waka (sea canoes) and to build central meeting houses so they played a central role in traditional life of māori.
The toki is traditionally worn for strength and courage - to assist through life's challenges.
We also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
