An anchor is a heavy weight that holds a ship in place. Remaining firm and steadfast amid the uncertainty of storms and the elements, an anchor symbolizes such concepts as firmness, tranquillity and hope.
Anchors are all about being strong and stable. No matter if you have sea legs or not, you can appreciate the deeper meaning of the anchor symbol – security, stability, and being grounded. It is a symbol demonstrating that a person is in tune with themselves and hold on to the values they believe in. The anchor can also represent a person who has been someone’s rock through difficult times. For some people, the anchor represents always having a safe place to go home to.
So our precious unique Anchor and Porthole charm may be purchased to symbolise all of these things or as a special memory of a time spent at sea gazing at a beautiful view from your port hole.

Caring for your Ariki jewellery
A silver cloth is the perfect partner to care for your Ariki jewellery. A quick rub over the cabochon and the setting from time to time will ensure that it remains in sparkling condition, provided that the following advice is followed:
Never expose the jewellery to detergents, perfumes or hair sprays. Ingredients in these items can penetrate the lacquer and cause damage to the cabochon (shell) and sometimes to the setting.
As with any item of jewellery it is advisable to remove it prior to participating in any vigorous activity that may cause damage through contact.
If swimming ALWAYS remove your jewellery. Swimming pool chemicals will harm the cabochon and will eventually also cause harm to the setting and plating. Ocean swimming will harm the setting and will eventually lift the protective lacquer on the cabochon and allow dirt and grit to damage the cabochon.
