The World Treasure Story - World Treasure grew out of a simple love for the ocean. A love for its wild expanse and untamed beauty, for vibrant reefs teeming with life and color, the soothing repetition of waves crashing on sand and the magic of its blue silence.
Their collection of fine, ocean-inspired jewelry is an expression of that love, designed and handcrafted with the highest standard of attention and care. They also strive to utilize responsible and sustainable materials and give back to protect the earth we all love.
World Treasure was started in 2010 by Australian jeweler, scuba diver and ocean enthusiast Nick Thorp. Nick grew up in the ocean – diving for abalone and crayfish in the cold waters of Tasmania before moving to Hervey Bay, Queensland, the “whale watching capital of the world.” Combining skill and passion, Nick hoped the collection would raise awareness and cultivate a greater love for threatened marine species.
Inspired by the region’s abundant marine life, the collection is still handcrafted right in Hervey Bay, Australia. Nick’s designs are creative and exquisitely detailed, a reflection of countless hours spent studying the migrating humpback whales that make their way through his hometown every winter. In particular, the Humpback Whale Collection was inspired by Nala, Hervey Bay’s very own and much loved iconic humpback whale. Recognizable by her fluke, Nala has been sighted in the Bay for over 20 years now and her life journey is celebrated throughout the range of jewelry.
