Inanga Pounamu is affectionately named after the translucency of the freshwater young whitebait fish. This type of Pounamu is rare and sought-after due to its unique pale colour.
Available with a choice of silver, gold or a traditional waxed braid.
Our fine and dainty range
Timeless pearls set with sterling silver or 14ct gold filled. Classic designs for everyday wear and glamorous sets when it is time to dress up.
Found only in the South Island of New Zealand, rich in cultural significance and history, Pounamu is regarded as a national treasure which is an honour to give and receive.
No two stones are ever the same, meaning all our pieces are unique with small variations in size and colour. For a custom make in one of our designs please get in touch.
Est. in 1998, our store and gallery is in Whaaingaroa Raglan, a small town on the West Coast of the North Island of Aotearoa New Zealand. The main studio is situated at the back of the store, where one of us is always working away. We happily welcome a chat with our visitors and can give you detailed information and history about the stones and metals. We're also able to customise and alter our pieces to suit your needs.
We are fortunate to work with a selection of local artists who have their original paintings, prints and objects amongst our pieces. We have an extensive range of Pounamu carvings, all genuine NZ stone made only by New Zealand artists.
Surrounding the jewellery and the art is a handpicked selection of semi-precious stones in raw forms, polished stones and incredible geodes available for purchase.
We look forward to seeing you in store sometime!
