Paua Shell (known in the US and Australia as Abalone) can only be found in the sea around New Zealand and there is no other shell in the world that offers the range of bright colours ranging from greens & pinks to purples & blues. The colours change when viewed at different angles and it is this bright iridescence which makes the Paua Shell so amazing as a gem material in Jewellery.
The Paua fishery is properly managed in a sustainable way with strictly enforced quotas and regulations.
It is a natural product and consequently every shell is different and every piece of Jewellery unique. The process of preparing the shells into sheets to be inlaid in the Jewellery is complex and requires handiwork by experienced craftsmen.
THE ELEPHANT symbolises many positive attributes in different cultures such as PRIDE, POWER, DIGNITY, ROYALTY, RELIABILITY, HAPPINESS LONGEVITY and GOOD LUCK.
