Beautiful pair of pounamu roimata (tear drop) earrings for that special person in your life. Such a kind and caring gift to give …. and a heart-warming gift to receive.

Roimata means "tear drop", and is a symbol of sadness. You could give these to someone who has suffered trauma or loss to reassure them that no matter what, you will always be there in their time of need.

Note: Each piece is made individually so there may be slight variations to colour, shape and size.

Genuine New Zealand Pounamu

Greenstone called nephrite jade by geologists, pounamu by Maori and greenstone by early settlers. This material is mainly sourced from the West Coast of the South Island, NZ.

Pounamu was originally carved and sharpened into weapons and tools as well as decorative ornaments. The natural beauty of the pounamu has many colour variations and classifications. Pounamu is regarded as precious and given as a taonga (gift) it is an honour to receive.

Pounamu is a treasured taonga of the Maori people. Pounamu is carved in many symbols which are significantly spiritual to Maori. Such symbols represent ancestry, connection to the natural environment or attributes like love, harmony, friendship, prosperity, strength and new life etc.
