  • Kōhatu Whenua


    Jewelry often tells a story, not just of the one who wears it, but also of its origin and making. This story is even richer when the jewelry is named, giving it an identity that resonates with its essence. Such is the case with “Kōhatu Whenua”, which in Māori translates to “Land’s Stone”. From a serene Canterbury beach in New Zealand, the Kōhatu Whenua set emerges – both carved from a single Greywacke stone, each possessing a unique charm and significance that taps into the heart of Aotearoa’s heritage. The name beautifully encapsulates the deep-rooted connection these pendants have with the land they originate from.
