PPO0977S

A traditional pounamu toki is given a modern twist with this silver necklace.  

In the ancient Māori world, the Toki or adze was a vital tool in everyday life. Toki have come to represent the strength and skill of an individual, and the acquisition of knowledge and mana (prestige). 

This necklace has been individually crafted in our Hamilton studio, ensuring a unique piece of jewellery for you. 

This piece was carved by Samuel Potter and the silver setting is by John Mayo.  It comes on a 54cm silver chain plated with rhodium (which helps prevent tarnishing) rather than the cord as shown in the photos. 

This piece measures: 35mm (L) x 15mm (W)
