Real paua shells set in classic french hook earring wires. The outer shells have been coated with a semi-translucent hardener that resembles a natural fossilised shell. Infused with speckles of Bay of Islands beach sand.
Uniquely New Zealand, Paua (also known as abalone) are considered taonga (treasure) to Kiwis.
Paua shells also symbolise the expression of the well-known quote “it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts.” Rough on the
outside and lustrous on the inside. A reminder to shine your light from the inside out.
Whether it’s something you treasure yourself or a gift for someone, paua shells are also a symbol of home as they were once the dwelling
place for marine creatures. Wear this jewellery to keep your thoughts at ease and remind yourself that you will always have a safe haven where ever life may take you.
Unlike other paua shell jewellery, we have intentionally chosen sun-bleached shells with a subtle lustre. Sustainably and ethically harvested from a Northland Paua Farm.
