Ariki is the world’s most successful designer/manufacturer of Paua shell jewellery. It is also one of the largest New Zealand jewellery manufacturers. The name “Ariki” is from the Maori language and means “The Chief” or “The Best”.
The company was established in 1932 when a Marlborough family saw the potential of the Paua shell to be the focal point of a unique New Zealand jewellery collection. Their ambition has resulted in the Ariki Paua Collection being widely sold in New Zealand and throughout the world.
The Ariki Difference
Ariki’s Paua is harvested from areas renowned for their water quality, both pollution free and rich in minerals. These minerals give the New Zealand Paua shell its intense depth of colour and thickness of shell. 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.
Made and Designed in New Zealand
Ariki’s jewellery collections are proudly produced at Ariki’s factory in Blenheim. We have a proud history of being a New Zealand based manufacturer employing New Zealanders to produce products for sale in New Zealand and Overseas.
