Abalone also known as Paua shell is sourced from New Zealand is a Maori tradition. Paua shell is deemed as a good luck positive shell and makes the perfect gift for occasions such as weddings, birthdays and Christmas. Abalone makes exquisite wedding jewellery.
Each piece of Paua shell is never the same. This may not be the exact one you will receive. If you are looking for a specific colouring, please contact me before purchasing.
Our Paua shell is sustainably sourced & is nickel, cadmium & lead compliant.
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 animal symbolism of the otter relies a lot on its environment. As an aquatic animal, the otter is a symbol of life. Why? Because the prime symbolic meaning of water deals with the divine feminine, which is a major life-giving energy. Water (and otters) are symbolic of creativity, fluidity and transitions. The otter’s affinity to water is also symbolic of healing. Consider: Water is a purifying, cleansing element. It makes sense water-loving creatures such as the otter will share those purifying qualities too.
**** JEWELLERY CARE ****
My jewellery is Silver plated with a base metal of Brass or Zinc / Sterling Silver.
Please do not wear your jewellery in water, this includes baths, showers , pools and the sea.
Please store away from direct sunlight and heat.
Contact with creams , oils , perfumes and cosmetics can cause metal discoloration / skin residue.
This type of issue is not a manufacturing fault and can be avoided if my care plan is adhered too.
Damage due to general wear and tear is determined by the wearer i do not hold responsibility for this.
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.
Please take care not to drop or scuff your jewellery.
