White gold contains the same amount of pure gold as yellow gold, with the addition of precious platinum and/or palladium, to naturally filter most of the natural yellow colour. Unlike many commercial jewellers we prefer not to coat our white gold jewellery by electroplating with rhodium metal. This means that there is less maintenance required and there is a natural color difference between the 9ct and 18ct versions.
Choose 18ct white gold for maximum gold content and lifelong durability. Get 9ct white as the best solid white gold option on a budget.
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.
In the Jewellery Collection of HRH The Duchess of Cornwall
In 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.
