The Pikorua

The Twist (or Pikorua) symbolises the bond between two people, connecting the lives of friends, family or loved ones. Its design comes from the pikopiko fern whose fronds curl around one another in New Zealand nature.

Pounamu, Jade or Greenstone?

We sell jade from all over the world and are very proud of our collection, but by far the most pieces we have listed online are from New Zealand. We call jade from New Zealand, "pounamu" or "greenstone" as it is here that these terms for jade originated. When browsing our collections you can filter by stone origin to make life easier. Our New Zealand pieces are 100% authentic pounamu (greenstone). Our product titles also include the country of origin.
