For over 30 years we’ve shared our vision locally and globally with customers in New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the United States, and we’ve earned the reputation for quality jewellery along the way.
We exist to craft distinct and appealing jewellery, and it’s been that way since our founding in 1979. That’s why we remain one of the few jewellery retailers that have an in-house team of master craftsmen – dedicated to creating your future heirlooms and pieces for every one-of-a-kind occasion while continuously perfecting their craft.
