Puti Earrings


2 pieces in stock

We are proud to introduce these beautiful pieces from Rerehua Boutique - the Puti earrings.

The Frangipani putiputi (flower) can symbolise fertility, strength, growth, and love. Also known as the Tipani, this beautiful flower is found throughout the Pacific. Although its origins are said to be from the tropical South America, they can also be found across South-East Asia. The whakapapa (origins) of the flower demonstrate how groups of people have migrated and settled across the Pacific for many generations.

The swirling designs around the putiputi (flower) represent the environment and navigation culture of Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa (the Pacific Ocean); the manu (birds), whetu (stars), ika (fish), waka (boat) and the kāpehu whetū (the star compass).

This item is presented on a black card with gold Rerehua branding, perfect for presenting as a gift.

Available in 18K Gold and Rhodium Silver Plated Stainless Steel - Engraved 50mm Pendant pieces on 20mm Hooks.

Rerehua Boutique Stainless Steel Jewellery is non-tarnish, hypoallergenic, durable, beautiful and long lasting pieces that should be handled with care. Avoid contact with chemicals, chlorine or other liquids.
