Ringed Dosinia shells are also known as tuangi-haruru, or saltwater clams, and are common to both NZ islands.

All of my shells are hand-picked by me (or my husband) while we're out beachcombing, and only completely empty shells are collected. Even though they were empty when picked up, the shells have been thoroughly soaked and cleaned before being treated with a clear coat of varnish to enhance and protect the natural colors.

All holes have been carefully hand-drilled, and the earrings assembled with love.

These beautiful cream large Ringed Dosinia shell earrings were found on Stanmore Bay beach in October 2020, and would make a wonderful gift for someone who has fond memories of Stanmore Bay beach. These earrings enable you to take the spirit of this beautiful beach with you wherever you go.

Shells: approximately 3.8cm by 4cm (height x width)
Earring drop: approximately 6cm (from top of ear wire to bottom of shell)
Pearl beads: 0.4cm
Ear wires: Platinum

The colour, pattern and edge on each of the earrings may differ slightly, due to natural variations in the shell, but they are a matching pair (they were still attached to each other when found) and are very similar in shape, colour and size, as seen in the photos.

These earrings are a unique set, as no two clams will ever have the exact same colour, shape or pattern.
