Sterling Silver - Paua Pendants
(Including Silver Chain)
A general example of Loving Our Jewellery.
Aloha Ray, you were absolutely right for me to patiently wait. Wanted to let you know the lovely necklace ( The Gift of God "Tangaroa") arrived today. It was just so beautiful. About 10 years ago, I have been to your country and also stopped at the Auckland Museum. I had purchased the exact same pendant and looking at the original case it was your jewelry.
Unfortunately in my move from Hawaii to Georgia June 2019, it was lost or stolen. Through good graces, I had found you. Thank you again and look forward to wearing it with fond memories. Mahalo Nui Loa, Lorena

Paua is a species of abalone (Haliotis iris), which a very special shell.
It is only found in the seas around New Zealand. Every shell is different, every pattern unique.
As you move the shell in the light, the colours change and move. The iridescence comes from photonic crystals of calcium carbonate laid down in the shell by the paua. This is the same optical effect as opals.
Inspired by this amazing natural gem of New Zealand Rei Jewellery Ltd creates quality jewellery using only gem grade natural paua. Designs that embody the very essence of New Zealand
