June is the Month of The Pearl—Discovering Nature's Timeless Gem

As June rolls in, it brings with it the allure of pearls, nature's exquisite creation celebrated as the birthstone of this enchanting month. Pearls have captivated humanity for centuries with their timeless elegance and fascinating origins.

In celebration, let's delve into what makes pearls unique and uncover some intriguing facts about these lustrous gems. We also want to show you all what makes our Blue Pearls so unique. It's not just the pearls themselves that are one of a kind; the Abalone species they come from is also very peculiar.

Are the colours produced by accident, random genetics, or perhaps because there is no excuse not to express such an incredible array of radiance to the world?

Round Pearls

Round pearls do have hues of blue in them such as Tahitian or Freshwater pearls, but they do not compare to the shades found in our Arapawa Paua Pearls.

Arapawa Blue Pearls

Ours are aquamarine, sapphire, or sky blues with other shades mixing and melding with greens, purples and pinks.

Such a gem is compared to opals for the range of colours possible and found in different lighting.

Blue is by far the rarest colour to be seen in pearls, so to have it in such an abundance in our pearls, makes them all the more special.

Blue has long been associated with truth, tranquillity courage and trust. The prominence of blue in our products should mean you find the right one for you or a loved one.

We do continually check that the pearls we do use for our products are high quality and will last a lifetime with proper care taken. Each has at least a blend of blue, mixed in with other colours to make for a one-of-a-kind gift to remind them of how one-of-a-kind they are.

Pearls are a very special, no two are exactly alike so we like to see what we do as spreading knowledge of just how incredible the natural world can be.

These beautiful little acts of nature are something worth cherishing and being appreciated for years to come.
