Yin / Yang : Two halves that together complete wholeness. Providing Balance.
Yin is characterised as slow, soft, yielding, and is associated with water, earth, the moon, femininity, and night-time. Perfectly symbolised by our beautiful Paua Shell Cab with its crystal, iridescent colours of greens pinks, turquoise and blues.
Yang, by contrast, is fast, hard, solid, focused, hot, dry, and is associated with fire, sky, the sun, masculinity and daytime. Featured on our piece as the solid side the pendant also features traditional Aboriginal art work to symbolise these characteristics.
This elegant piece will restore the wearers balance, realigning their spirit and ultimately making them feel calm, energised and alive.

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.
