In genuine New Zealand Greenstone carving the koru is said to represent new beginnings, growth and re-generation. We know it symbolizes the fern frond seen in New Zealand’s native bush because of the native New Zealand people, the Maori, proverb that speaks of rebirth and growth: Ka hinga atu he tete-kura – ka hara-mai he tete-kura
As one fern frond dies – one is born to take its place.
This unique and beautiful piece of genuine New Zealand Greenstone or Pounamu as the Maori people have named it, has been hand carved and then lightly oiled to bring out the natural beauty of the stone.

  • Pounamu NZ Nephrite Jade
  • Approximate measurements: 20mm x 20mm
  • Supplied with an adjustable cord. Authenticity Certificate included. Jewellery box included

Caring for your Ariki jewellery

A silver cloth is the perfect partner to care for your Ariki jewellery. A quick rub over the cabochon and the setting from time to time will ensure that it remains in sparkling condition, provided that the following advice is followed:

Never expose the jewellery to detergents, perfumes or hair sprays. Ingredients in these items can penetrate the lacquer and cause damage to the cabochon (shell) and sometimes to the setting.
As with any item of jewellery it is advisable to remove it prior to participating in any vigorous activity that may cause damage through contact.

If swimming ALWAYS remove your jewellery. Swimming pool chemicals will harm the cabochon and will eventually also cause harm to the setting and plating. Ocean swimming will harm the setting and will eventually lift the protective lacquer on the cabochon and allow dirt and grit to damage the cabochon.
