If you know me well enough I talk about my desire to someday visit New Zealand.  I was looking through a website and I found some unique jewelry.  This jewelry is quite different from what I have normally seen.  Paua shell jewelry is from the abalone.  Those shells are found on select beaches in New Zealand.  Paua collection is only limited for a few months out of the year.  It’s been described as “Each shell has a different color range, making each piece original.”

I believe this style of Jewelry can be marketed well here in the U.S.  Because of the rarity of these shells, here and in New Zealand, a marketer can advertise this as rare, original, one of a kind.  It could be sold only during particular times of the year, giving it some sort of exclusivity.  It could be sold in higher end boutiques.  The prices are ranged from $5.00 to $25.00 dollars, they could be raised significantly.  I’m thinking it could be marked up in price and it will range from $60 to $150 dollars.  They will be great investment pieces.

I like this type of jewelry for several reasons.  The colors that are on the shells are so unique, with the color combination’s.  I like that the shells are rare.  The rarity gives it a great sense of appeal.  I also like the unique shapes that the shells make.  I think that this jewelery is going to make a great statement and create a sense of style.
