Roimata Whakakai – pounamu drop earrings
Look at these little lovelies. Your classic roimata earring. A gorgeous shape with a long history, they just ooze elegance and style. Perfect for Saturday morning football, a day at the office or your friends wedding.
Wear these pounamu drop earrings on those days when you need to stand taller, feel confident and let your inner strength radiate.
Roimata are the tears cried by two sacred albatross that accompanied Pourangahua to Aotearoa. As such they are a lovely gift when you are wanting to express empathy and compassion for the sorrow of a loved one.
Roimata can also be the tears between an unbreakable love and are therefore a beautiful way to show someone that you love them, you are thinking of them, and that you are with them always.
