Etched paua shells are featured in these 3" earrings with sterling silver diamonds and earwires, making them a good reminder of vacations gone by or a wistful longing for escape. Paua and abalone refer to the same kind of shell: a lovely colored shell from a sea snail. Paua is a Maori word from New Zealand while abalone derives from Spanish. These shells have been etched and stabilized for protection from wear.

Cost: $32.00 USD

Care & cleaning: Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.
