The story of The Golden Kiwi pendant
Our customers often ask us for something distinctively Kiwi. So we decided to create an elegant and wearable design that combines our national symbol with the distinctive Jens Hansen sculptural style.
This timeless jewellery icon suits everyone no matter what they are wearing or doing, so we’ve nicknamed it “New Zealand’s little black dress of jewellery”.
‘The Golden Kiwi’ is also a play on another Kiwi icon, being the name of our national lottery from 1961 to 1989.
Bringing Kiwi back to our region.
*We are proud to support the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary Trust. Sponsorship from Jens Hansen ensures a percentage of proceeds from the iconic Golden Kiwi jewellery line goes into the Jens Hansen Kiwi Establishment Fund to support the re-introduction of kiwi into the fenced sanctuary.
As worn by HRH The Duchess of CornwallIn November 2015, on the occasion of her visit to Nelson, the Mayor of the city gifted The Golden Kiwi in 18t Yellow Gold to Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall.
About The Golden Kiwi pendant
The Golden Kiwi pendant is a beautiful stylised interpretation of the national symbol of New Zealand, the rare flightless Kiwi bird.
It is handcrafted from solid (NZ-sourced) 9ct or 18ct yellow, white or red golds. It measures 15mm wide x 13mm high.
The necklace chain is strong without being too heavy and is also made in New Zealand in the rolo style (a round cable link). Available in 45cm (18").
In addition to our classic high polish finish, for our 18ct gold Kiwi's we are able to offer a hand-textured finish option. A textured finish diffuses light rather than reflecting it producing a quite different yet versatile appearance.
Each Golden Kiwi has its gold carat hallmark, and the Jens Hansen and New Zealand-made hallmarks.The Golden Kiwi is a registered New Zealand design - NZ Design Registration No. 420559.
