Hei Niho (Tooth necklace)

Regular price $30.00 $0.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Besides looking edgy and strong, Hei Niho plays a role in both physical and spiritual protection. It mimics the tooth of a wild boar that’s considered a valuable possession in Marquesan culture and it’s adorned with the centuries-old traditional symbols. Hei Niho (Tooth necklace in Marquesan language) is usually considered the domain of men, but it may just as easily be worn by women.

The placement of jewelry around the neck is considered paramount in protecting the most vulnerable part of the body from injury and it combines the properties of both an amulet and a talisman into one piece.

This unique pendant was hand-carved from oceania rosewood in the South Pacific island of Nuku Hiva and it comes with an elegant, adjustable black line.
