One of our best-selling necklaces! A pair of hand-sculpted "mother & child" pendants crafted from juvenile farm paua (abalone) shells. This necklace celebrates the inner radiance of motherhood (just like the inner lustre that paua is known for) and the enduring bond between mother and child.

These shells are sustainable upcycled creations derived from farm shell waste, so you can say it's a transformation from waste to wondrous wearables!

Beachsand setting – Inspired by the organic beauty of beach sand, we’ve created this setting out of putty and clay. Hand-formed with New Zealand beach sand inclusions, we’ve chosen marine turquoise to match the hues of the paua and the ocean.

  • All our paua shells have been sustainably sourced from a local paua marine farming operation. The juvenile shells did not mature and therefore are discarded as a waste product, from which evolve our unique jewellery pieces.

Stunning, elegant and beachy

I am really excited about these beautiful earings. They are so pretty and exactly as they look on the website. I got one pair for my sister and one for myself and I can't wait to share them with her!

Paua cluster necklace

Mother & child/ whanau paua

I purchased a mother and child paua necklas for my 86 year old mothers birthday who lives in the UK, I then purchased the whanau necklace and an additional shell to add. We now both have a necklace to remind each other of our connection of grandmother, mother, daughter, son & grandchild, regardless of the miles between us. It was so good to find an artist who creates these beautiful pieces from nature right here in NZ. Thankyou so much team Nostalgem.. They are beautiful. I look forward to adding to my collection

Beautiful necklace

My sister introduced your website to me, as I live in the UK and she's in NZ. I saw this beautiful Kina shell and bought it for my mum's birthday present, and she absolutely loved it. When I skyped her recently she was wearing it and looked fab.

I bought these as a gift as I love my pair so much. Such a nice gift, and the receiver loved them.

Bought as a gift for a special birthday - they look beautiful, light and elegant on and the gold somehow glows through even though it’s only on the backs of the shells. Thank you x

Tiny Kina Pendant Kintsugi Gold Necklace with Cubic Zirconia
Just Gorgeous!!

I bought this for my mum-in-law for Mother's Day. It was beautifully wrapped and had a hand written card card from Rina which I thought was a lovely personal touch. The pendant is exquisite and the expertly applied gold kintsugi makes it even more eye-catching in my opinion. Rina's imaginative and creative ways of using beachcombed, farmed and upcycled natural items constantly astounds me.

Awesome necklace, so tiny and as usual made to a very high standard. Prefect. Thank you.

Paua and gold earrings.

Very impressed with them thanks.
Great work.

Fabulous paua shell ring, so pleased with it

I love the paua shell ring, and am so pleased with it. Beautiful and unusual, I will wear it often. It is very well made and the adjustable size means that it can be worn on different fingers depending on your requirements.

Am in love with them I gave them to my cousin and she loves them to

So delicate!

Love these earrings. Beautiful lustre and light as a feather. I'm usually a bit wary about online purchases but these are definitely worth it.

Beautiful and unique

This necklace sits nicely on my neck and is a reminder of my relationship with my pēpi. The gold dipped shells are lovely and lightweight and the chain feels elegant and high quality. I absolutely recommend this product.


Received this for a special birthday. The necklace is delicate and gorgeous.

Paua shell review.

Well Rina, I keep coming back, dont I ?
Your craftmanship is amazing. Everything is of the highest standard. And, I love these earrings. They're so dainty. I don't know how you manage to work with such fragile shells.
Thankyou too for my many many purchases, over the past 12 months, or so.
I'm a happy customer who has been well looked after.
