Meaning Yellow in Te Reo Maori, Kowhai have strikingly bright golden flowers, with curved ruffled petals. Blooming in Spring, they add a flush of colour to the New Zealand landscape, attracting Tui and Kereru to their nectar.
Solid 9k gold Kowhai `bells' (1.28grams total gold weight), hang with sterling silver leaves on sterling silver ear hooks/hoops. Total length from top of ear hook is approximately 3cm.
Available on my standard sterling silver hooks (image 3), safety hooks (image 4), or hoops (image 5). Please choose from the drop down menu.
Lilygriffin jewellery is dainty and delicate, so care must be taken when wearing and storing it.
Please do not wear while exercising, swimming, gardening, showering, cleaning or sleeping. Store in a soft protective pouch or box out of direct sunlight and away from moisture, excessive heat or cold. Please do not store in the bathroom. Avoid contact with household chemicals, perfumes, creams, and hairspray/gels.
I would be delighted if you wanted to wear my jewellery everyday, but please be aware that you will be able to enjoy your handpainted and 24k gold embellished pieces longer if they are not worn on a day to day basis.
