Philanthropy is important to us, and we love to give back. When you buy our Tahitian pearls, a portion of funds go to initiatives that will ensure that all women have an opportunity to improve their lives. If you want to look good, and do good too, read about the ways we make a difference through sustainable jewellery design.

As some of you may or may not know, my story is deeply linked to my mum’s story. She passed away from cancer when she was 42. Back then the doctors in Fiji couldn’t adequately diagnose her. Whilst I was grieving I wished that she had had the chance to do more of the things that she loved. It was her passing that set me on the journey I am still on today; and how Shahana Jewels came to be.

Youth and pregnancy are to be happy times for women just like you and me. And while Breast Cancer affects everyone: brothers, husbands, fathers, children, friends, us ladies have a unique opportunity to support the cause by doing something we love - shopping!I’m so proud and excited to collaborate with the Fiji Cancer Society for Pinktober.

It’s likely we each know someone who has faced or been affected by Cancer. Maybe you are that brave person who has walked a challenging road with Cancer. I lost my Mother to Nasopharyngeal Cancer at a time when Cancer was unheard of in Fiji. The doctors didn’t really know what was wrong with her. It wasn’t until she had a check-up in New Zealand did she get correctly diagnosed.

For breast cancer survivors, this body confidence journey becomes more complex during diagnosis, treatment and recovery, especially when they don’t have access to underwear and garments that accommodate their strong, changing bodies, and all they have been through.
