CHAMPION has been skillfully crafted from premium quality New Zealand Marsden jade. We would describe this as a 'gnarly' piece - a character-filled piece of stone carved in a chunky strong design. This is a piece for someone who likes the outdoor adventure lifestyle!
This piece is bound with a dark, Wapiti brown cord and we have used the same colour for the necklace. This can be adjusted with a couple of slip knots. Wear it exactly where you'd like!
CHAMPION is a beautiful piece of traditional jewellery, carved from a wonderful piece of deep green Pounamu.
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.
Delivery with Express Courier is included in the price.
