Engraved Pearls
Although Tahitian pearls are very special , Tahitian engraved pearls are far more exceptional .
We exquisitely handengrave each and every pearl depicting traditional polynesian designs to highlight their beauty .
 In ancient days each tattoo and motif had a specific meaning and through our designs we try to respect and perpetuate our culture by integrating these same desings and meanings in our jewelry .
To us engraving or tattooing pearls is more than just a business it is about sharing our culture and telling our story .

By choosing a carved pearl you are not just getting a treasure from the christine waters of Tahiti , you are getting a piece of art that tells a story from the rich and varied culture of the islands .
Whether you are discovering tahitian pearls or are a connoisseur , we offer a diversified collection of delicately handcarved pieces .

At Te Hotu Mana Creations we are taking aim at larger and higher quality pearls .
 While many artists work is done on dull and low-grade cultured pearls , we pride ourselves in providing carved pearls of quality with very thick, lustrous nacre and deep carvings.
Our pearls display a range of luminiscent colors evocative of the magical colors of the polynesian lagoon and diversified landscape .
