FAQs

We respect your choice and do not bless our finished pounamu pieces. However, we encourage those who purchase to consider blessing it before gifting. Please see the answer below regarding "How can I bless pounamu."

Blessing pounamu is a personal choice often associated with gifting to someone close. Seek guidance from a Kaumatua or local Marae for traditional practices. Alternatively, you can honor tradition by cleansing the pounamu in a river or stream with a karakia (prayer), or by blessing it with the recipient to share your intentions. These methods allow for meaningful engagement with pounamu according to personal beliefs and connections.

Yes, you can buy pounamu for yourself without cultural taboo. In Māori history, pounamu was both a cherished gift and a traded commodity among tribes, symbolizing honor, respect, and enduring value. Whether purchased or received, owning a pounamu taonga carries deep spiritual significance, enhancing personal mana (spiritual life force) and connecting past traditions with the present. Whether for yourself or as a gift to friends or loved ones, the choice that feels meaningful to you is important.

Each river-tumbled pounamu bracelet is uniquely shaped and colored, showcasing its natural beauty. During checkout, you can leave a note for our whānau specifying your preferences for the bracelet's shape or color, and we'll do our best to accommodate your request.

Each Māori design carries unique cultural significance:

  • Koru: New beginnings, growth, harmony
  • Toki: Strength, resilience, wisdom
  • Pounamu Bracelet: Connection, protection, unity
  • Hei Matau: Prosperity, strength, safe journeys
  • Pikorua: Aroha (love), enduring bonds, life's cycles
  • Roimata: Healing, empathy, connection
  • Porowhita: Life cycle, harmony, interconnectedness
  • Whale’s Tail & Niho: Guardianship, intelligence, aroha
  • Manaia & Breastplate: Protection, balance, resilience

Each item purchased comes with its own individual meaning card. Learn more about their stories and meanings here.
