A small, striking and beautifully carved New Zealand Tangiwai Jade pendant. This little piece is carved from rare New Zealand Tangiwai pounamu - a beautifully translucent stone found in Anita Bay at the entrance to Milford Sound in our South Westland.
The name 'Tangiwai' comes from the Māori Tangi which means "to cry" and wai which means "water" or "tears". This is a beautiful piece of tangiwai we've named after the iconic Matterhorn in Wallis, Switzerland.
The toki is a tribal symbol representing strength. It is designed to honour the adze which was used to build, fight, defend and played a important role in the daily survival of ancient tribes.
We deliver this pendant on a hand plaited NATURAL TAN adjustable cord and will also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
