Abalone Paua Shell Bracelets


Found off the coasts of New Zealand, Paua shells have long been considered a rare and prized source of material for jewelry craft. They were originally used by the native Maori for centuries to create sacred tribal adornments. Their interior contains unique iridescent swirls of blue, green, purple, and pink; a brilliant combination of colors that makes them instantly recognizable as Paua shells.

Today, they are considered one of the world’s most beautiful type of shells since no other sea shells possess the range and depth of color that Paua shells naturally have.
