At The Village Goldsmith, we pride ourselves on treating each customer as an individual and focusing completely on finding the right design to suit their lifestyle and unique wishes. We strive to provide a personal, friendly, efficient and informative service to our customers.
Our staff jewellers are continually updating their skills and there is always an experienced jeweller on site in the Wellington jewellery store to give you a professional opinion.
Known for our wide range of jewellery designs, and in particular our unique engagement rings and wedding ring collection, we have many styles to try on and choose from in store or online. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, you can speak to one of our team about having the perfect piece of jewellery custom designed for you and crafted by our manufacturing jewellers.
Our jewellery design work is highly regarded and we recommend that you make an appointment to consult with us. At an appointment, our experienced staff will sit down with you to discuss your ideas, offer suggestions and make a time to come back and view sketches, models or stone options.
For more information on the process please see our Custom Jewellery Design section.

The Village Goldsmith will provide you with a Certificate of Authenticity for all diamond rings manufactured on site, which includes a 5 year guarantee against defect in craftsmanship or materials and for normal ‘wear and tear’. The Village Goldsmith reserves the right to assess the extent of ‘wear and tear’.
We also provide a lifetime free checking and cleaning service. This service is provided on site at our Wellington retail premises, while you wait, by our experienced manufacturing jewellers and should be completed on an annual basis. To maintain your 5 year warranty please return your jewellery annually for its free clean and check.
We are also happy to arrange an independent valuation for your item through highly respected independent New Zeland jewellery valuation firms. Depending on the item to be valued the cost is approximately $85.00 - $95.00 and takes approximately 6-10 working days. An independent valuation can be requested when you visit the store or during the checkout process when purchasing online.
Tax free jewellery purchases are available and The Village Goldsmith can arrange a tax free jewellery purchase for travellers and overseas visitors to New Zealand.
For more information on tax free purchases see our Buying Guide.
Just because you live out of Wellington doesn't mean you have to stop dealing with your favourite jewellery store or miss out on the creative process. Designs, pictures of models and stones can be emailed to you.
Feedback on our service and the production of your precious jewellery is of the utmost importance to us. We look forward to seeing you or hearing from you.
