Continuing on from my last blog – I would like to show you a few more of my absolute favourite pieces of Unique New Zealand Jewellery. I love working in this industry where I get to choose such special pieces of Paua Shell Jewellery to wear each and every day.
Diamond Earrings and Diamond Pendant
PE200/PE100 and GP800/PO800
The Diamond, in its rarity and beauty, is a symbol of purity and innocence, of love and fidelity, and embraces strength of character, ethics, and faithfulness to oneself and others.
Ariki New Zealand’s jewellery designers have perfectly stylised our gorgeous diamond shaped jewellery piece to embrace these characteristics.
The diamond symbol has long been valued for its immaculate beauty. Its physical appearance is associated with valuable attributes that are relevant to living a meaningful life, such as purity, clarity and wisdom.
And of course the Paua Shell cabochon in each and every pair of Diamond Earrings or Diamond Pendants are most definitely beautiful. The myriad of colours shimmer and shine in the light – just like a fine diamond.
Traditionally diamonds have been labelled a “girl’s best friend” and this set are absolutely one of my favourite jewellery “friends”
GP899/PO899 – Beloved Pendant
The simple definition of beloved is something that is very special, important, or valuable – esteemed as rare or precious.
My stunning Beloved pendant is certainly one that is of special importance to me.
Although I treasure each and every piece of unique New Zealand Paua Shell jewellery I wear. My beloved pendant is most definitely one of my most treasured. Wearing it reminds me of all that is most precious to me. My family, my friends, and the precious piece of paradise I call my home and my beautiful country of New Zealand.
Of course the Paua Shell which adorns this elegant pendant is esteemed around the globe for its unique beauty and point of difference.
The Paua is unique to New Zealand – and myself and my fellow “family members” here at Ariki New Zealand Limited are very proud to be able to showcase this precious shell to the world.
GP584/PO584 – Hug Pendant
A hug given by a loved one is certainly something to be treasured forever. And another of my favourite pieces of unique Paua Shell jewellery, my Hug pendant symbolises these special moments in time.
The smooth sleek lines of the jewellery panel to me look very much like two arms encircling the Paua Shell Cabochon in a warm and loving hug.
Sometimes hugs can give us Goosebumps, sometimes they recharge our hearts. They can be given to us by those people who can heal our wounds with a gentle caress, accept life with infinite kindness, and decorate all the difficulties with their smiles.
Sometimes an embrace can, almost literally, rescue us from being lost at sea, put back together our broken parts, break our fears, soften our weaknesses, and create a work of art with the pieces of our heart.
One of the first human experiences in life for the new-born baby is lying in the arms of its mother nursing at her breast. Any child should receive many forms of parental touching during its growth, particularly embracing in the form of hugs, which become symbols for something positive: joy, security, and confidence.
To me there is nothing more special in the world than to feel the arms of my loved ones, my children or my grandson around my neck as they hug me tight.
I treasure these special moments in time just as I do my unique and special Hug Pendant.
