These stunning earrings are part of our Matariki & Hiwa i te rangi collection.
Matariki is the Māori name for the cluster of stars also known as the Pleiades. It rises in mid-winter and for many Māori, it heralds the start of a new year.
This pattern (the niho Taniwha - triangles) represents the nine stars in the Matariki constellation; Matariki, Waitī, Waitā, Tupuānuku, Tupuārangi, Waipunarangi, Ururangi, Pōhutukawa, Hiwa-i-te-rangi.
Hiwa i te rangi: She’s the star that we send our hopes and aspirations to for the forthcoming year.
You can get these with the word Matariki or Hiwa i te rangi on them.
