The Ariki difference
Founded in 1932 in Blenheim, New Zealand, Ariki is the world’s most successful designer/manufacturer of Paua shell jewellery.
The name “Ariki” is from the Maori language and means “The Chief”.
Ariki’s Paua is harvested from areas renowned for their water quality, both pollution free and rich in minerals. By using only the best quality Paua shells Ariki’s Paua shell jewellery is able to clearly distinguish itself from its imitators all around the world.
Unlike most of our New Zealand competitors we have a proud history of being a New Zealand based manufacturer employing New Zealanders to produce natural jewellery for New Zealand and overseas.
