Manaia

Manaia

A messenger and spiritual guardian of the sky, earth and sea. The Manaia brings balance and protection to those you love most.

Pounamu Manaia

Believed to move freely between the spirit and human world, the manaia is a mythological creature, greatly respected in Māori culture.

Bringing balance and protection

The profile of a manaia is commonly thought to depict the head of a bird, a tail of a fish, and the body of a man, representing the balance between earth, sky, and sea. What manaia traditionally meant to Māori remains somewhat a mystery, but commonly it is considered that they are magical creatures and spiritual kaitiaki (guardians) of things worth protecting. Today, pounamu manaia are gifted between loved ones for protection and worn to ward off evil.

    Beautiful necklace

    I had a hard time deciding which Manaia to choose and I see that I got it right! I love it, it's so beautiful, I didn't know about Australian jade but I like the black tone it has. In short: very happy with the purchase.

    I visited NZ 11 years ago and bought a piece from your shop. I took it to a jeweler in my country to find a way to wear it, other than with the cord but without drilling the piece, the photo shows how the jeweler assembled it.

    I've never worn necklaces, but I feel great in these. I am attaching a photo of both of them.

    Best wishes for you all from a Catalan woman in love with New Zealand!

    1st jade nicklace

    I love the product and what I symbolizes. The packageing was simple yet great, though I thought it would be just a little bit bigger. Either way I wear it everyday and will be buying more in the future
