Paua Shell Earrings


Reminiscences of the Beach

Paua shells have the most incredibly gorgeous and fantastic texture. These Paua Shell Earrings are a small fragment of sea life immortalised in silver to be admired for many years to come.
The Maori believe that the Paua will connect and harmonise relationships. The way the shell’s colours vary in the light is also a sign of change and transition. They believe that gifting the shell to someone enhances feelings of peace, compassion, and love. These stunning Earrings would be the perfect symbol of this.


Sterling silver Earrings

Sterling silver is a beautiful material to wear on your ears, neck or fingers. It is light, subtle and so easy to match to any fabric, skin type or outfit. We love designing our jewellery pieces using sterling silver because of it’s tough properties that let you swim in the salty ocean and never have to worry about corrosion, they will look amazing in and out of the water. You can create a boho, hippie or beach style with ease. You can literally take the spirit of the ocean wherever you go with a unique shell shape that can decorate your ears in summer or winter with a floaty cotton dress or cute denim shorts and a tee.

Beautiful ocean inspired sterling silver earrings  – 

We are an Australian jewellery designer that sells a range of handcrafted sterling silver jewellery earrnings that are made on the Sunshine Coast in our workshop. We sell jewellery pieces that are available in different shapes and sizes with designs that are ocean inspired using ideas from things like coral, driftwood, the waves, sea shells or other items you can find under the water or at the beach.

We design each piece of jewellery to have subtle organic shapes, textures and elements, our sea themed earrings have been inspired by formations in the ocean or sea life itself. You can purchase one of our earring and have it delivered to your home to wear, it arrives in a lovely gift box. A sterling silver beachy earring can be worn for any occasion like an anniversary, party or day out at the beach. Although for most people they are worn to look good and feel great any day of the week. 

You can wear our earrings when you go swimming in the ocean, they will not tarnish, rust or deteriorate in any way, they are made of solid sterling silver.

Earrings are an ideal gift idea as they can be worn by nearly anyone no matter the shape of your ears or face.
