This is a cracker of a toki! The jade is gorgeous - predominantly a golden brown with splashes of deep, deep green!
This toki is carved from a lovely and striking piece of jade with a soft polish finish. To contrast and complement the shades of green and orange in the stone, we've bound it with a beautiful plaited Kalahari and Manuka Green Cord and a lovely Kalahari Binding.
Watch the very brief video of the toki revolving - the front face has taken the polish in a varied fashion - part high shine and parts matte. The inclusions that produce the wonderful colour vary in hardness and this produces the variation in polish.
The cord is length adjustable.
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 ....and this is a good one!
Traditionally, the toki is worn to provide strength and courage to assist through life's challenges.
We include our 'Kia Ora' card explaining the meaning behind the Toki design.
Delivery with Express Courier is included in the price.
