Kawakawa Kōmore - Pounamu & Solid 9ct Gold Bangle

Sands Carving Studio


Introducing a beautiful addition to our signature collection: a stunning Kawakawa Kōmore  meticulously crafted in solid 9ct gold. Inspired by the koruru style head and unaunhi whakarei, adorned with the Ngāti Awa tītī, also known as the muttonbird, this piece is a truly exceptional addition to any collection. Hand-carved by Alex Sands, this bangle is hinged with a gold-link safety chain measuring 70 mm in internal diameter and 23 mm in width. The stone is sourced from the Rimu area of the South-West Island, this Pounamu displays varied shades of apple green and yellow.

The unaunahi symbolism embodies the present moon and its phases, casting a gentle light onto the water, creating captivating flows and ripples. As the moonlight dances on the water's surface, it highlights the intricate scales of the fish, symbolizing life's abundance and vitality.
