Kahurangi Darlings – large hoop earrings

Every girl needs a pair of hoop earrings.  They are so versatile, giving every outfit that extra bit of something special and showing you off as the wahine toa that you are. From a day at the beach to formal dinners or nights out on the town(I even wear mine when I’m gardening!) these vibrant green Kahurangi pounamu hoop earrings will make you feel and look fantastic, funky and original.  Check out the photos to see how they light up when the sun hits them. Truly magical.

We’ve hung them from our hand-made sterling silver kidney hooks that have a little catch at the back to ensure they cannot fall out of your ears.

The Story

Kahurangi is one of the rarest varieties of pounamu and held in particularly high esteem due to its translucency and clarity.  Kahurangi means to be as clear as the sky and is also something that is prized, treasured or precious.  Hence the stone is aptly named.

The finer points

  • We carve your hoops to order.  Individually hand-carved just for you.
  • Precious things take time – please allow up to 14 days from your order to completion of your taongaPlease contact us if your order is urgent and we will see if we can accommodate your needs.
  • 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.
  • 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.  To avoid disappointment, if you see something you love we recommend you take the opportunity to purchase it while you can as we cannot guarantee the same colour will always be available to us
