 Our Paua shell is sustainably sourced & is nickel, cadmium & lead compliant. Also Hypoallergenic.

What does this mean ? There are regulations about what metals can be used in jewellery, nickel, lead and cadmium are the ones that have to be tested. All Abalone jewellery falls well within the permitted levels, and is closest as can be to being “free” of these metals.

Rhodium plating is a metal deposition process used to coat materials with a decorative and protective layer of rhodium. Rhodium is a noble metal that imparts an extremely bright and hard wearing finish when applied as plating. When applied as a thin plate, it affords a durable finish of exceptional brightness. Rhodium finishes can greatly enhance the appearance and longevity of any metal to which they are applied.

The perfect gift for the elephant , nature, animal lover in your life.

Elephant Meaning

Many cultures revere the Elephant as a symbol of strength and power. It is also praised for its size, longevity, stamina, mental faculties, cooperative spirit, and loyalty. To the Hindu way of thought, the elephant is found in the form of Ganesha who is the god of luck, fortune, protection and is a blessing upon all new projects.

Jewellery should be handled delicately. For example crystal jewellery needs extra care . Some crystals are low on the crystal hardness scale and can break and chip more easily than others. For example Fluorite has a low hardness scale.
