At Brereton Jeweller's, home of the Blue Pearl, we don't just specialise in Blue Pearls, we live and breathe them.
After being the first jewellers in the world to specialise in Blue Pearls in the late 1990s, and now with over 15 years experience under our Akaroa Blue Pearl name, our family business is set to take New Zealand's most amazing gems to the next level with our own EXCLUSIVE supply of locally grown Brereton Blue Pearls!
Other than our store and website you will not find our superior quality, handset pearls anywhere else in the world.Blue Pearls are unique to New Zealand waters. They are Mabe Pearls cultured in Haliotis iris (also know as Paua or Abalone) shells.
Each pearl takes 3 years to grow and is graded according to profile, lustre, surface quality and in some rare cases, colour. No two Brereton Blue Pearls are ever exactly the same.We also stock a wide range of other Pearls including rare and unusual Freshwater strands, Cook Island Black Pearls, Rare Golden South Sea Pearls, Tahitian Black Pearls, hard-to-find semiprecious stone pieces, Diamond Jewellery plus much more.If we don't have what you want we offer a full design and manufacture service should you wish to create your own personal piece.
