Matomato Tangiwai earrings

These lush green Tangiwai earrings are a must-have for any serious pounamu earring lover.  We have tested this style of earring with a lot of wear, so we know how to carve them to a weight that makes them both comfortable and strong.  They are light enough for you to wear all day long and then keep them on to show off at that evening gathering, without feeling a drag in your ear.   You can see in the photos that they are so thin the light behind will highlight their true depth and make them glow.  You will stand out in a crowd with these sumptuous, hand-crafted beauties, conveying confidence and fun to everyone who gets to see you in them.

We hand make our hooks using sustainably sourced sterling silver

The Story

Matomato means to be green and grow vigorously, in other words, to flourish and be lush.  The green of these earrings is exactly that, lush, with the glow of a vigorously growing plant.  When you wear these Tangiwai earrings you will feel lush too – I promise.


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 Matomato taonga 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 unique due to the 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.
