These shell jewelry are made of genuine Paua - a type of abalone that can only be found on the coastline of New Zealand. Known to produce the most colorful shells of them all, the Paua shells are combined with the elegance of .925 sterling silver to make each piece a unique and remarkable work of art. (No two Paua shells are exactly alike … for this reason, the jewelry piece you receive may differ in pattern to those photographed here. If you would like to pick out the EXACT Paua jewelry piece you want to purchase, please contact us and we can send you a photo of what is available in stock to choose from.)
The triple twist is one of the favourite Maori symbols.
It represents the joining together of two people, or two cultures, for eternity and even though they may experience life's ups and downs they remain bonded by friendship and loyalty for life.
These beautiful Triple Twist Earrings are handmade in New Zealand with sterling silver and Paua (Abalone) shell and match our Triple Twist Design Pendant.
