The Elements - Our Materials

We want every piece from us to be your long-lasting friend. We endeavour to strike that fine balance between the affordability for novel and edgy style for the trendsetters and the fine and classic elegance for pearl jewellery.


At Zenelia, we use the top quality sea pearls and freshwater pearls, including Japanese Akoya Pearls, Edison Freshwater Pearls and Australian South Sea Pearls. The pearls used are carefully hand-selected to guarantee that every piece of pearl jewellery at Zenelia will have strong lustre, the elegant overtone and with the most beautiful colours.

Pearls are no longer just the stranded piece in an old jewellery box, they are classic and elegant and at the same time, they can be dynamic and fun to work with for different styles and looks. 

Some believe that wearing pearls offers protection and good luck. They also symbolise purity, integrity and loyalty. The pearls have always been timeless in style, and they are famous for their user to create beautiful classic jewellery piece.

Many people favour a piece of pearl jewellery set to wear as their daily
accessories for work, events and casual wear. This is mainly because of the lasting value that they have held for years. As well as their exceptional ability to flatter any style. Travelling with them through life’s moments and eventually passing them down to share their love and companionship through another’s life’s moments.

A handcrafted Pearl jewellery set is ideal for adding a gentle touch to your professional style. If you are gifting it to a young girl, then they are perfect to associate the perception of purity and humbleness early in life.

Precious Metals

Solid Gold

We use 18k solid gold for the pieces in our fine jewellery range Pearl Essentials which are our classic pearl jewellery collections that include only the classic and timeless designs for pearls.

Solid gold will not suffer from tarnish due to its high concentration of pure gold which is a very stable metal. Gold is one of the least reactive chemical elements. As we know that gold is very malleable, it may get scratches and wear marks after a period of time, avoid storing them with sharp objects. But a nice polish and care every once in a while will restore that shiny smooth surface! 


Most of our signature collections of our fashion jewellery range are made with gold-filled metal materials instead of carat gold for a more affordable but still durable and long-lasting.

14k gold-filled metal has the same appearances as 14k solid gold. It is more tarnish-resistant and has a thicker coating than gold plated materials. In most cases, individuals who are sensitive to metals won't have an allergic reaction to gold-filled materials.

925 Sterling Silver

Did you know that silver pieces thrive on them being touched on your skin? Give them consistent love! Silver will get oxidise if you leave it for a period of time. However, a bit of wipe down will restore their shine.
