Rerehua Toki in Marsden Flower Jade

Rerehua means aesthetically pleasing, pleasant to the sight, beautiful.  Really there is no better name for this toki. It is absolutely stunning. With its marble-like swirls, this toki in Marsden Flower Jade has such depth of character.  We see a deep-sea cavern and Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel.  We wonder what you will find hidden within this magical toki.

Furthermore, toki were one of the most important tools for Māori and were used for any number of everyday jobs such as cutting down trees, carving out waka, digging ground, Moa hunting and food preparations. Because the toki had to be strong to endure the cutting and scraping motions of its use it became a symbol of strength(particularity in time of adversity), courage and fortitude. What is more, toki were also worn by elders as a symbol of power, wisdom and authority.

 With this in mind, we think you’ll see why we named this taonga toki Rerehua. It is the perfect size for everyday wear and its gentle curves make it a truly beautiful piece.  Flick through the photos to get a good feel for this Rerehua toki.
