Handmade New Zealand Jewellery from Real Native Shells and Local Botanicals

Unique Gifts Celebrating New Zealand's Natural Beauty… and Reflecting Yours

Hello Shello! My name is Rina and I am the beachcombing jewellery artist of Nostalgem. If you're looking for New Zealand jewellery that is as unique as your loved one (or yourself), then welcome! I craft handmade jewellery that embodies the unmatched beauty of New Zealand’s nature. Each piece is designed to be as distinctive as the person who wears it.

Nature’s Silent Storyteller: Jewellery Celebrating Family and Connections

Nature has a way of telling stories, and I capture these narratives through my jewellery. My collection features pieces that celebrate family bonds and relationships, such as mother and child paua shell necklaces, each crafted to symbolise the unique connection between loved ones. I also offer shells that represent each member of a family, creating a meaningful and personal keepsake. These pieces serve as a tribute to the special relationships in our lives, making them not just jewellery, but cherished stories and symbols of love.

One-of-a-Kind Treasures: Small-Batch, Unique Creations

Every piece of jewellery at Nostalgem is a one-of-a-kind creation. I take pride in crafting each item in small batches, ensuring that no two pieces are ever the same. The unique characteristics of the shells I collect dictate the final design, making each piece a rare find. If you see something that catches your eye, don’t hesitate—once it's gone, it’s gone forever. Embrace the opportunity to own a truly unique treasure that stands out as much as you or your loved one.
