“I've worn my Lovebirds Pendant everyday for the last 10 years since my husband bought it as my honeymoon gift when we visited NZ. On our 10th anniversary trip I visited the Boh Runga Jewellery Bohtique in Auckland and bought the Fantail Earrings and some other new treasures! My favourite jewellery!”
“This was definitely a purchase by me, for me! I like to think I’ve worked pretty hard this year and felt I needed a reward. I love lockets - they have a bit of weight to them, both physically and metaphorically. I have a silver locket which I’ve had for over 30 years and felt it was time to up my game, and add a gold sister. I haven’t yet added my special keepsake, but will probably be another photo of my kids. I have a few of your pieces now, and they are special purchases that always have a meaning and a memory.”
Matariki rises in Aoteraroa, New Zealand, in mid winter. Mata ariki means ‘Eyes of God’.
From early June, Matariki is visible to the naked eye before sunrise toward the north east of the horizon. North of the commonly known ‘Orion’s Belt’, you will see a tiny cluster of stars - this is Matariki. The seven stars in Matariki are often told as representing a mother and her six children. Matariki is a time to reflect on where we are now and where we will be, a renewal for the new year.
Our Stargazers Pendant pays tribute to the seven stars of the Matariki. This beautiful mixed metal pendant showcases both solid 9CT gold and sterling silver stars along a fine silver chain. Modernising the classic thread earrings, our Stargazer Threads hang from the ear, catching the light. For those with multiple earring piercings, layer up our Stargazer Silver Stud and Stargazer 9CT Studs as another fun way to mix metals. A solid 9CT gold star hangs delicately from our unique Stargazers Chain Ring.
