Eyris Blue Pearls® are exclusive to New Zealand. Blue Pearls come from New Zealand abalone, also known as paua or Haliotis iris, only found in the cool clear waters close to the New Zealand coastline, and it is these creatures which possess the greatest range of colour and iridescence of any abalone shell. The pearls are cultured right here in Akaroa Harbour. In the Blue Pearl Gallery, on the Main Wharf in Akaroa, our jewellers create Blue Pearl jewellery right in front of you. You can see the entire creation process from start to finish—from sketch, to Eyris pearl setting, to the completed piece. “This is how Blue Pearls should be exhibited in all their iridescent glory”, says the owner of The Blue Pearl Gallery, Jack Pawlowski. Come in and enjoy these unique Kiwi pearls!
