The swirling sleek beautiful lines of our Waves Bangle emanate from an absolutely gorgeous large oval Paua Shell Cabochon which mirrors the colours of the Pacific Ocean surrounding New Zealand from where the Paua Shell originates.
Due to the fact it is an Island nation New Zealand is abundant with coastlines – from harsh rocky shores to beautiful golden sand beaches and everything in between. It truly is paradise and it is these coastlines that have been immortalised in this unique piece of New Zealand Jewellery produced totally by hand here in our New Zealand factory.

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.
