Silver Fern Cufflinks For Men – Paua Shell Favourites (Vicky’s Blog)

Silver Fern Cufflinks

“It is always an inspiring experience for me to looking through our wonderful range and I can’t help but share a few more key pieces of our exquisite Paua Shell jewellery with you.”

We do not neglect the men in our lives when it comes to our jewellery.

We have created a range of cufflinks for men which will set off any suit or formal attire handsomely. Recently my younger brother, who is required to wear a suit in his chosen profession, and his wife welcomed their very first beautiful baby girl into the world.

I made sure to select some lovely cute pink outfits for baby and a special treasured token of jewellery for “mum” but did not want to let this momentous occasion go by without selecting a gift for my brother also.

I chose the PO213 Silver Fern Cufflinks as their meaning is also especially significant given that this precious baby girl was born in New Zealand.

The Silver Fern is a proud and iconic symbol of New Zealand. It is worn with pride by all our national sports teams as they represent our small island nation on the world stage, to signify their special connection with our land. It evokes feelings of success, dedication and loyalty. The wearer of this beautiful piece of jewellery will be sure to feel this bond with our country.

New Zealand souvenirs: carry your Aotearoa memory with you

CARRY NEW ZEALAND WITH YOU – With just a day left in New Zealand, you come to the sudden realisation that your work trip has come to an end and you have yet to buy authentic New Zealand souvenirs. It is highly likely that a “My friend went to New Zealand and just got me this” mug will find its way to the recycling bin and a wooden keychain will be forgotten in minute’s time.
Bring back the best of New Zealand from your trip- the fragrances, the flavours and the memories. Delicious Manuka honey and decadent gourmet chocolate from Auckland will take care of the fragrance and the flavours. Your cherished memories will be preserved in stunning jewellery from Ariki. Ariki’s exclusive line of jewellery encapsulates the beauty of Kiwi culture without fitting into the cliche of touristy gifts.

Ariki, which means ‘The Chief’ in Maori language, is one of New Zealand’s leading jewellery manufacturers. Ariki jewellery is crafted from the purest metals and is fitted with only locally-sourced stones and shells. Each piece of Ariki jewellery is hand-crafted, from start to finish, in New Zealand – a true representation of Kiwi craftsmanship and artistic abilities. Try as they may, craftsmen from around the globe have been unable to match the beauty of original Paua shell jewellery fashioned in Ariki’s workshop. A blue-coloured shell that shifts hues in natural lighting, the Paua Shell is found deep underwater in the region surrounding South Island. Ariki’s master craftsmen have designed a variety of stunning studs, hoops, tops and dangling Paua Shell earrings to suit every occasion. Paua Shell earrings and pendants are crafted in the highest quality sterling silver, palladium and gold plating metals. While only Paua Shell pendants and earrings are being offered in sterling silver at this time, palladium and gold plating jewellery with Paua Shell is available as follows:

One of Ariki’s most popular souvenir brooches is the Kiwi Brooch, an homage to New Zealand’s native flightless bird, which is set with an exquisite piece of Paua Shell. For those who would like to keep the memories close to their heart, Ariki’s Silver Fern Pendant is a certain pick. The silver fern represents all that New Zealand stands for – loyalty, dedication and success.
No trip to New Zealand can be complete without selecting an exclusive piece of Nephrite Jade jewellery for a loved one. Carry the wonderment of New Zealand’s roaring rivers and soft rolling hills with you as they echo through in the rings, earrings, pendants and more designed in Nephrite Jade.

Vicky’s blog: a myriad of ways to celebrate the natural beauty of the Paua Shell

Our clever jewellers and designers have found a myriad of ways to celebrate the natural beauty of the Paua Shell.
As you will learn, the jewellery is inspired by our beautiful country and enhances the shell to make a unique piece of jewellery to be worn with pride.
Our designers use the natural environment as inspiration for some of our pieces, the cute little starfish, the graceful sleek dolphins, sea turtles and sea horses found in the pristine waters of the New Zealand Coastline are just a few examples.
