This exquisite piece of artistry using the precious shell Mother of Pearl and silver is an heirloom taonga. Sourced from one of our ancestral homes in Tahiti, therefore this brooch can be fondly referred to as a Star of The Pacific. A celebration of diverse celestial creativity that knows no bounds in our waterways, skies and earthly spaces.
