Paradox brings together polar opposites. It forges two worlds—ocean and earth—to create a collection of modern classics. Natural and organically harvested South Sea pearls from the ocean meet symmetric and polished precious metals gems from the earth.
‘ARAO’ (or ‘araw’) in Filipino directly translates to “sun.” It is also the root word of ‘araw-araw,’ which means “every day.”
ARAO’s sustainable and ethical jewellery showcases the rich hues and bright luster of Golden South Sea pearls. We craft our artisanal pieces with empowering women in mind to allow them to discover their own light within, and let it shine every day.
Bought a pair of pearl earrings for my wife from ARAO - she loved them! She really appreciated the beautiful pearls and unique design. I am no online jewelry shopping expert but the whole experience was convenient and super smooth, including the logistics, delivery and personal touch after-sales process. Also, their focus on ethical sourcing, authenticity and sustainability really resonates with me.

I've been incredibly pleased with everything about ARAO. Ordered the earrings Dec. 19th (Sat) and requested if delivery can be made before Christmas as it was supposed to be one of my husband's gifts for me, and it actually arrived after just 2 days, on Dec 21st (Mon)! The packaging was beautifully done which even came with a personally written note as well as a very timely free gift. Most of all, I love the exquisite quality of their golden south sea pearl, an elegant classic that has fast become my go-to everyday earring. No doubt, I am one delighted customer and looking forward to my next ARAO work of art.
