Pou Whenua – Inanga Earrings

These earrings are carved so that the weight is at the bottom so they swing and move beautifully in your ears, as you talk and move your body. For us, along with shape and colour, movement is a key feature of the most pleasing earrings. And these beauties have all of that.

  • One of a kind pounamu earrings.
  • Total length 63mm. Pounamu 46mm.
  • Hung on our handmade sterling silver hoops.
The Story

The Pou Whenua is a boundary marker or marker of ownership. These were ornately carved posts placed strategically in the ground to mark your iwi boundaries or places of special significance. With their wide base and peaked tip, these earrings were carved to resemble the pou whenua, the marker of boundaries.
