Bay of Islands

Nostalgem

For Rina, founder of Nostalgem, every day is a treasure hunt.

Escaping city life and moving to the beautiful Bay of Islands in 2016 rekindled Rina’s love of making jewellery as she was inspired by her wonderful natural surroundings.

As a self-taught jeweller, she has created her collection of tiny treasures through trial and error in her small home studio. She hand-selects each paua shell, pearl, pōhutukawa leaf, and kōwhai petal directly from nature to become the centrepiece of her jewellery designs.

Rina creates her designs to celebrate individual life stories, family, and the natural beauty of New Zealand. Through her art, she wants to make personal pieces that resonate with the wearer and remind them of cherished moments they never want to forget.

Our Packaging

We will ship your piece to you in an oatmeal jewellery box, with a two-sided folding mini artist profile card (as pictured). This is then placed in a low-ink recyclable card shipping box, using our branded tissue paper as a nest before the box is secured with our branded 100% Recycled FSC Formery tape. We also offer a Premium Gift Wrapping service - look out for it as an option on the cart.
