You tell the story and we capture its essence.
Every story is different just like every piece we carefully craft. 

At The Village Goldsmith we create and craft lasting memories for our customers. Each piece of jewellery is uniquely designed to capture your story.

We listen to your needs, your dreams, and work with you to deliver a tangible piece of jewellery that not only tells the story of how it came to be and what it represents, but also holds a lifetime of memories as your relationships continue to evolve.

Every story is different just like every piece we carefully craft.

We think there are few items we possess in our lifetime that can carry such a powerful meaning. It’s no surprise then that everything that goes into finding, creating, and crafting your piece of jewellery brings us such great satisfaction and pleasure. It’s the reason The Village Goldsmith founder, Ian Douglas, began crafting jewellery in the first place, over 40 years ago.

From first hearing your story, to finally seeing something executed by our own hands and in our own workshop, passed on to you, to whom it means so much, is one of the most satisfying feelings in the world.

It’s our goal that the experience of being involved in this process brings you a wealth of satisfaction too.

What story would you like to tell? 

Custom Design

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.

Certificate of Authenticity

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.

Independent Valuations

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 Purchasing 

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.
