The latest in our paua jewelry collection features a Zealandia favorite, the delicate dragonfly, soaring over a ripple patterned silver background that evokes the feeling of transformation and movement.
This silver dragonfly necklace from our paua jewelry collection celebrates a unique life lived between two extremes. The dragonfly is seen flying over water, rendered in ripple patterned sterling silver, symbolizing the dual existence he enjoys. The dragonfly is also seen as a symbol of great change thanks to the profound transformation he makes from nymph to dragonfly.
Our designers selected prized New Zealand paua shell for the dragonfly’s body. This vibrant and unique shell comes to us colored by nature. It is found as part of an abalone distinct to New Zealand waters, and its teal to purple and black striations have made it a favorite in fine jewelry pieces.
Our dragonfly’s tail is made from hand carved fossilized walrus ivory, which has lain in the earth for 500-3,000 years. Minerals have stained it a delicious range of cream to deep cocoa hues, and it makes a particularly earthy addition to our paua jewelry collection. Our fossilized walrus ivory is a valuable cultural and economic resource for the Native Alaskans who gather it for carving, sale, and trade.
