Blessing - Pounamu Roimata - 925 Silver Chain


This Taonga is a Roimata called Blessed. The Roimata represents a tear drop. It is often associated with tears of sadness. In this instance this taonga represents a healing process taking place through such a release.

Roimata such as this make a wonderful touch stone. Over time when used in this way, the oils transferred onto this stone will gradually deepen the sheen, complexion, and lustre of this piece. 

This Pounamu was blessed and gifted to me by the very esteemed Kaumātua and Tohonga Rev. Maurice Grey.  The source of pounamu doesn’t get much better than that!

I have used very high-quality chain and fittings of 925 Silver. As such the value of these earrings will increase over time. Sterling silver items contain a minimum of 92.5% pure silver. Sterling silver will last for a long time if cared for properly, whereas silver-plating will wear off and generally does not last.

This set is from the first batch of Pounamu work that I have created. I think that this potentially makes them even more special. (Especially if I become famous one day or perhaps once I am dead).

This Roimata is registered in my Database and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and I guarantee my craftsmanship. If there are any problems let me know ASAP and I’ll put it right. 

I wish you and your family the deepest peace and happiness. 
Aroha nui.
