Ariki is the world’s most successful designer/manufacturer of Ariki Paua shell jewellery (in American English: Ariki Paua shell Jewelry). It is also one of the largest New Zealand jewellery manufacturers. The name “Ariki” is from the Maori language and means “The Chief”.

Our Traditional New Zealand Design range includes New Zealand inspired jewellery pieces which pay homage to this unique connection to our beloved New Zealand and the the Native New Zealand people, The Maori. Each piece has it’s own special meaning and significance.
