Pāua and sterling silver earrings.
This beautiful, petite set of earrings are made from gorgeous New Zealand pāua shell set in a sterling silver surround.
The beauty of pāua is its responsiveness to differing light - change the angle a little and different colours reflect from the shell.
New Zealand pāua is the South Pacific variation of the abalone. It grows slowly in the cold waters around New Zealand which produces the robust and very vibrant coloured shell. Pāua has long been used locally to decorate jade and bone carvings, but it also makes very beautiful jewellery when combined with sterling silver.
