Natural Paua Gems

 

Yes, the vibrant changing rainbow of colour that you see as you move this piece of jewellery,
is the real natural colour of paua shell. No dyes or artificial colours. 
Rei Jewellery Ltd uses only the highest quality natural paua shell, polished to perfection,
and presented in a design that embodies the essence of New Zealand.

   These cabochons show the true nature of paua shell as a gem material. We search for the increasingly rare thick paua shells that are heavy enough to cut true cabochons. Cabochons with enough depth to show the, rolling fire of chaging colour that is the true magic of paua shell.

Sterling silver (.925) is the silver standard used by quality silversmiths around the world.

Silver is safe. whatispaua?

Paua         

Te Koha a Tangaroa

The Gift of the God of the Sea

Paua is unique to New Zealand. The most colourful species of abalone.    Regarded by New Zealanders past and present as a Taonga or treasure. Maori legend has it that paua was a special gift from Tangaroa, the God of The Sea.

Rei Jewellery exclusively uses gem quality, natural Paua Shell when creating our designs.

Every shell is different, every pattern unique. As you move the shell in the light, the colours change and move.

This iridescence comes from photonic crystals of calcium carbonate laid down in the shell by the paua. This is the same optical effect as opals, and is what makes paua such an outstanding gem material.
