Our Guarantees

100% Authentic

Every piece of New Zealand Pounamu we carve in our studios is legitimately sourced, while our independent carvers use their own legitimately sourced greenstone. We label our stone by region so you know if you buy something that says New Zealand, that is what you are getting.

Highest Standard

Each of our pieces are hand finished to the highest level. That means smooth lines, soft finishes, no scratches and no cuts. We’re over-finishers, everything’s made the hard way. If you are not completely happy with your piece, you can return it to us. That's our commitment to the quality we produce, and we stand by it.

Finest Stone

We’ve travel to some of the most beautiful countries in search of new types of jade, colours, textures and features. Our passion for this stone is strong. We have the most diverse collection of jade in the world to show for it and some of the finest examples of pounamu anywhere.

Manaia

The manaia is a guardian representing balance and protection. The head of a bird, body of a man and tail of a fish represent the sky, earth and sea. The three fingers signify birth, life and death. It connect the earthly and spirit world.

Our Promise

Shipped to you in sustainable packaging

We post our jade in courier bags that are made from a revolutionary process that uses limestone (instead of trees) to make the paper. This process requires zero water with production compared to paper, where a standard sheet of A4 uses approximately 10 litres of water. The bag is also 100% recyclable, commercially compostable and photodegradable. We have also opted for recycled and recyclable material for our brown shipping boxes, which we pack-out with recycled brown paper, not bubble wrap.
