Cast individually in sustainable New Zealand beach or river sand, these beautiful, organic circle earrings are made from recycled sterling silver or 9ct Alluvial Gold from New Zealand. Each earring has it’s own unique texture reflecting the sand within which it is created. Your porowhita closed circle earrings measure approximately 15mm in diameter and are approx 2mm in width. You also have the option of having a GPS location laser etched onto the reverse, or the word Aroha (other wording may be available) for a small additional fee. You can select from handmade earhooks or stud finishing for your earrings.
The circle shape, or Porowhita in Te Reo Māori, represents the understanding that the Universe has no beginning and no ending, and symbolises the cycle of life and our eternal remembering and forgetting – a journey of endless discovery!
These earrings feature a beautiful sandcast texture which has been designed to connect you to a place, offer you a sense of belonging and remind you of all those who have come before you. Inspired by the Māori concept of tūrangawaewae, often translated as ‘a place to stand’. Tūrangawaewae are places where we feel especially empowered and connected.
