kohuki - Thought - Pounamu Earrings

85.00

These earrings are named kohuki meaning thought. I have named them this because as a touchstone they sooth the mind.

They are made from authentic Ngāi Tahu Pounamu. I am a registered Artisan licensed to purchase raw Pounamu through Ngāi Tahu’s authenticity assurance scheme developed under the authority of the Ngāi Tahu tribal council. The Ngāi Tahu authenticity code for this pounamu is: B200NG6N. It can be traced ‘here’.

I have made several pairs from the same block of stone and each pair look a completely different colour! This raw stone is Kahurangi, the Māori word for ‘precious’ or ‘prized possession’. It is the lightest green of the stone types with delicate translucency (when carved thinly). Endless combinations of Pounamu types occur, and no two pieces are the same guaranteeing that your Pounamu is unique. Within this block of stone, the colours range from warm tans, through to light creamy greens, and a deep dark green as we get closer to the heart of the stone.

This stone was sourced from the rivers of Tai Poutini ki te Raki, the northern region of the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island. 

I have used very high-quality 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 earrings 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).They have also been formally blessed and therefore truly transforming them to become a sacred treasure (he taoka tapu).

Add To Cart

Each set of earrings is handcrafted and is unique. As these are handcrafted there will be small variations between each piece and this adds to their magic. Also, the difference in each piece of stone makes these incredibly individualised. Each pair has been registered in my Database and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. 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.
