At The Village Goldsmith we take pride in designing and crafting pieces that tell a story and take inspiration from the world around us. If you are inspired by the country's "Garden City", the beautiful Canterbury plains, or the stunning Sumner beach landscape, there is no limitation to what we can be inspired by. 

Whether you are having a bite to eat at the Riverside Markets, shopping at the Tannery, relaxing in the sun down along the Avon or exploring the beautiful gardens of Hyde Park you can work remotely with us to make your dream jewellery piece a reality.

Custom design jewellery from Christchurch

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 work with our clients remotely from all over New Zealand and around the globe, so if you are based in Christchurch, or anywhere else for that matter, please get in touch. We would be happy to help you through email, skype and over the phone.

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.

Capturing Stories. Crafting Memories.

"We designed this beautiful ring with The Village Goldsmith and they were absolutely  AMAZING to deal with! Everything was done via email/phone etc as they are based in Wellington and we are in Christchurch but honestly it was so easy and they made the whole process so special for us. Honestly cannot recommend them enough."

- Renée Stewart, Christchurch

Oval Diamond Solitaire Engagement Ring in Platinum

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"After sadly having to return my first engagement ring with another jeweller due to continuous faults I was sceptical about shopping for another ring. I would pop into chain store jewellers randomly for a quick look and be bombarded with questions and 'sales' and package 'deals', but it all felt fake, like I was being tricked. I first walked past The Village Goldsmith on a Wellington weekend away thinking, oh, I can't go in there it looks too flash and expensive. But it got to the point where price wasn't a determining factor anymore and I wandered in. After a few minutes of peace and browsing time we were greeted by Georgina. She was super understanding of our venture and really down to earth. I tried on a few items, but fell in love with a ring that was just out of my price range. When Georgina said she could customise a piece to suit my budget in the exact shape and style I wanted I was thrilled! Further to that, my partner and I are based in Dunedin. So Georgina along with some other support staff were able to email and communicate with me whilst we designed and quoted my perfect ring. Within a few weeks it was being sent down by courier. I have nothing but good things to say about the service, operations and quality of The Village Goldsmiths products and will be back when it comes time to pick our wedding bands."

"I was really happy with the price, ease of customisation and with the helpful staff. Can't think of a better price to get what you envision for a gift."

- Shayne Martin, Dunedin

"I absolutely loved the whole process from choosing the ring to proposal. I dealt with a super impeccable, lovely and thorough Allette whom catered to every request (even when I had no idea about a lot of things). The process was very enjoyable and probably made a lot more fun given the service I received was of a high standard. My partner was so in love with the ring and I couldn't be more happy myself. Will be recommending Village Goldsmith to everyone!"

- Ben Janssen, Christchurch

"Even though I live in Christchurch, the process of having a bespoke eternity ring designed & made for my wife was made easy. I had a good few questions that would have been easier to have addressed in person, yet all of my (emailed) questions were answered knowledgably, honestly & promptly. The ring means a lot to my wife & me and I felt that Village Goldsmith cared about getting it right. The images of several design options were very realistic & gave us a good feel for the final outcome before getting it made."

- Ross, Christchurch
