About Abalone Shell
Abalone, also known as Paua, is a colourful and iridescent natural seashell. As a natural product no two pieces of abalone shell are ever the same, making our jewellery as unique as the person wearing it.
The shell used in our jewellery is sustainably sourced as a by-product from the Farmed Fishing Industry of New Zealand and is never dredged or free fished.
About Manaia symbolism
The Manaia symbol represents a mythological Maori spiritual guardian or messenger, often depicted as a curling serpent or bird. Wearing the Manaia is believed to protect against evil.
