These funky pounamu hoop earrings are perfect for every occasion. Firstly, these earrings are very light. Making them great for those days when you are on the go and just need something stylish and low maintenance. Secondly, these earrings are just funky. Take the two-tone look that seems to be in everyone’s ears at the moment, and step it up a notch by doing it with pounamu hoops. They dance in your ears as you move, adding energy to your character and fun to your movement. These earrings are perfect for that early morning start, or when you have to run out the door. Just throw them on and go, knowing you look fabulous. These funky pounamu hoop earrings would make a great gift for the woman who loves to look unique and funky, whilst wearing handcrafted beauties in her ears. Or pair them with one of our Kokopu pounamu necklaces(like our funky wee model here) for a sophisticated and unique style.

Diameter 45mm

We hand make the kidney hooks with sustainably sourced sterling silver.  These hooks close securely with a small loop to ensure the earrings cannot fall from your ear.  

Pīrori means to twirl round and round.  The sterling silver connection on the pounamu allows these earrings to twirl freely.  This spinning movement also makes them very therapeutic to play with! A timeless style, every woman needs a pair of hoop earrings.

The finer points

  • We gather the pounamu ourselves, so the type of pounamu we have available to us is always changing depending on what the awa brings to us.  If you see something you love, to avoid disappointment we recommend you take the opportunity to purchase it while you can as we cannot guarantee the same colour pounamu will always be available to us
  • We carve your Pīrori to order.  Individually hand-carved just for you.
  • Please remember that pounamu is a natural material so every taonga we make from this stone will be distinct due to the unique variations within the stone.
  • Precious things take time – please allow up to 14 days from your order to completion of your taonga.  Please contact us if your order is urgent and we will see if we can accommodate your needs.
