THE VALLEY - travel with purpose and courage

If you like the photos, take a moment to watch the short video. You will gain an appreciation of the graceful shape and the grain and colour of the bone.

Whale bone is quite porous and will absorb body oils. It will take on a golden colour over time. Local belief would say that the pendant becomes a part of you.


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.

These pendants are traditionally worn for strength and courage - to assist through life's challenges.

We will ship this beautiful pendant to you with DHL Express Courier, with a hand plaited and adjustable cord.

Also included, one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.

Please Note: this piece is for sale in New Zealand only.
