Kawakawa Greenstone Toki Silver Necklace

PKA1038S

A modern take on the traditional toki, this necklace is crafted with Kawakawa pounamu, an intensely dark green stone.  This delicate toki necklace is suitable for everyday wear. 

Kawakawa is named after the leaf of the Kawakawa tree.  When worn the pounamu will appear quite dark, almost black, but hold it up to the light and the beautiful green shines through. 

All our jewellery is individually crafted in our Hamilton studio, ensuring every piece we make is unique. 

This piece was carved by Samuel Potter and the sterling silver setting is by John Mayo.  It comes on a 44cm silver chain plated with rhodium (which helps prevent tarnishing) rather than the cord as shown in the photos. 

This piece measures: 25mm (L) x 11mm (W) (at base)
