This pair of bird earrings in silver and New Zealand paua shell are a favorite from our striking paua jewelry collection, highlighting the shell's brilliant colors set against gleaming sterling silver.
Handmade Silver Surf Necklace - Maori Surf Design
Our paua shell bird earrings in silver make a gorgeous statement with their clean, contemporary lines and striking natural materials. Our designers created this bird perched and content with a nod to the dove's silhouette. A single prominent feather hangs from each one, giving these bird earrings a touch of motif inspired magic.
We selected New Zealand paua shell as the focal material in this pair. Paua is a multi-colored and luminous inner shell lining from an abalone species native to New Zealand. It offers up a radiant palette of colors from glossy green to iridescent blue, purple, inky blacks, and deep sunset corals. We design all of our paua jewelry around this shell and how it will best decorate the animals or shapes we create.
Sterling silver offers a simple, gleaming counterpoint to the rippling patterns found in paua shell. These bird earrings are set in 100% sterling silver right down to the stud backing and butterfly closure.
