With the claim of being both the southernmost and westernmost city in New Zealand, Invercargill is also fondly referred to as the capital of South. Located in the Southland region of the South Island, Invercargill has not only plenty of things to do, but is also bursting with good old southern hospitality, culture and history.
There is no better way of celebrating this friendly city than by keeping a piece of it close to your heart, which is what you do when wearing our handmade Invercargill map pendant necklace. Crafted from nickel free metal which is either plated in silver or bronze, each pendant measures 25mm across and hangs on an 80cm ball chain.
We’ve paid particular attention to detail when making creating each piece, carefully positioning the miniature map in just the right place under the glass dome. We’ve even added the cutest mini heart right next to you, letting you show others just how close this southern city is to your own heart. How about adding a small ‘home’ tag right next to your pendant? You don’t have to have lived here or made it your hometown for it to have captured your heart; anyone who loves it can call Invercargill home.

Maori arrived earlier in the century, attracted by the plentiful seafood and birdlife. There is also a distinct Celtic influence within the city too, thanks to some of our early European settlers.
