Est. in 1996 Brereton Jewellers are the original leading manufacturers of handmade, high quality, Blue Pearl jewellery. Blue Pearls, Paua pearls or Abalone Pearls, are a mabe pearl cultured in the New Zealand Abalone Shell (Haliotis Iris). It is also commonly known in New Zealand as Paua. The hemispherical shape of the cultured pearl produced is an ideal shape for pendants, earrings and brooches and being a flat back pearl it opens up new possibilities for designs. Using our exclusively grown and selected pearls we have developed special techniques to produce unique blue pearl jewellery for the discerning customer.
"Our store and website are the only places in the world where you can buy our exclusive Blue Pearls. Over the years as 'Akaroa Blue Pearls' we always put quality and customer satisfaction over price which has been the drive behind having our own superior quality pearls grown. We guarantee better quality pieces of jewellery that no other grower or shop are likely to match. It is as simple as that." - Murray Brereton
