The Village Goldsmith Wellington CBD Store Front - Victoria Street, Te Aro

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"The Village Goldsmith is an incredible place, and my experience with designing an engagement ring went beyond all expectations. From the day my partner and I first went in and met with Ben (with a very specific idea in mind), to the day my ring was ready, they kept me informed and responded straight away to any questions. I was so excited to get my ring, and the entire process only took three weeks from the date I picked out the gemstone. The final product feels even more special knowing it was handcrafted by a fabulous Wellington institution and I can't thank Ben enough. I'll be back for my wedding ring, without a doubt!"

- Kelsey, Wellington

"Well what can I say, if you like great service and advise this is the place. I looked long and hard for the perfect engagement ring and VG had exactly what I was looking for. Should keep me out of the dog house for life that ring."

- Chris & Kylie, Palmerston North

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"I cannot recommend this small independent Wellington business highly enough. I have purchased three rings from them since discovering their jewellery on a visit to New Zealand in 2012 and love their contemporary design and style. On my last visit from Scotland, I had the pleasure of meeting Ian Douglas and listening to him talk about where he gets the inspiration for his designs was just wonderful. Quite simply, the quality of workmanship, attention to detail and customer service at The Village Goldsmith are second to none. If I could give them I higher rating I would."

- Sandra Inglis, Scotland

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"Excellent craftsmanship and jewellery pieces. The Village Goldsmiths go above and beyond for quality and custom pieces - from sourcing the diamond, the design work and excellent customer service. From the intial choice of range of the diamond quality to the cad design work/3d Printing, to the end attention to detail product the Village Goldsmiths did a highly professional job and did much more expected. Definitely recommend these guys for that special occasion."

- Fabian & Liv, Wellington

"I had my engagement ring made by the VGS while living in Switzerland. They were very helpful, great communicators and produced exactly what I was after!"

- Shelley Kemp, Switzerland

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"When my mother broke her back, the hospital cut her mum's wedding ring off her finger. I managed to smuggle it to the Village Goldsmith. In a week they managed to repair it so well that the join could not be seen. When I gave it to my mother she could not speak as she was so choked up. I would use their services again in a heartbeat."

- Meryl Evans, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"I love my engagement ring from Village Goldsmith, which Mark picked out with the help of the staff there. We both love our wedding bands which we chose in store. The staff were really helpful and service was really great. I would recommend them to anyone looking for good quality jewellery."

- Christine Lo, Ngaio

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"Beautiful work and super helpful people - I worked with VG to custom design an engagement ring and they were always very responsive and thoughtful about what we wanted, and the product is gorgeous. Their collections are distinct and very well designed. This isn't just 'curated' jewelry, but genuinely *crafted*."

- Mike, Carterton

"Absolutely recommend. No idea is discarded but rather built on with discussion and sketches. All of my finished pieces are beautiful and they are not 'signed off' unless all happy! Thank you Ian and team at VG"

- Gillian Mackersy, Kapiti

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"I needed to have my wedding rings resized so I decided to combine them into one ring. I was quite apprehensive as I've had them a long time and they were very special. Ian was just wonderful and came up with the design which was just what I had in mind. The cost was very reasonable and the work was completed on time. I chose Village Goldsmith as I knew this special and caring service was not available in the larger jewellery stores."

- Jocelyn, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"The staff were professional but friendly and patient."

- Sue, Kapiti

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"I wanted a gold ring with a single sapphire made for our 45th wedding anniversary. The staff at Village Goldsmith were great. I was shown a square sapphire and, with the help and advice of the staff, we designed a beautiful ring with the sapphire set down in the band. I also had a small shark tooth set to wear as a pendant. I wanted as much of the tooth exposed as possible and they just put a gold band around it rather than capping the top. It looks amazing! Both were completed really quickly and I love them!! Thankyou so much!!"

- Margaret & Guy, Martinborough

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

- Paul, Wellington

"The Village Goldsmith are so great to deal with. I had my engagement and wedding rings made there 20 years ago and to celebrate our anniversary I just recently had an eternity ring made to match. It is so lovely to have the set. The service I received was so great with excellent advice about what would work best with my existing rings. The workmanship is second to none. I highly recommend them."

- Jacqui, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"I had a great experience when wanting to create and design the engagement ring. VG really helped me with taking me through the process from concept to design, and provided great advice on how to go about it, how to refine it and also stay within set budget. The result was a stunning and unique ring which served its purpose well! We will be back for designing our wedding bands with VG for sure!"

- Peter, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"Had a custom piece made and it was better then I could ever dream! Have gotten so many compliments on it and Steve came up with a design so much better then I could think of he really understood the piece and the end product and experience with staff was incredible and so helpful! Been telling everyone who made it and will definitely use you again in the future! Thank you for making me such a special one of a kind piece."

- Tarryn, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"The Village Goldsmith recently made my wedding ring; a totally unique piece made with dinosaur fossil and the gold from my parent's rings. The original design perfectly captured the look I described; everyone I spoke to about the ring was enthusiastic and helpful, and the end result is the most and precious thing I own. Thanks!"

- Rowena Pearce, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"Being involved with Village Goldsmith in the design process of a new engagement ring to incorporate stones from both my late grandmother's and my own engagement ring that had worn out was a fascinating and exciting experience. The interactive and collaborative approach taken to designing the look and feel of the ring expertly captured my personality and provided reassurance of working towards a superbly finessed end product. My new ring is stunning and speaks to me of the past, present and future. I couldn't have hoped for a better experience."

- Alexandra, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"Colleen is fantastic to deal with, nothing is a problem and the quality of the finished product is always great. I have had 5 rings made and purchased 2 pairs of earrings and love them all!"

"This is my second ring from VG and I went in to get a design drawn up and then they made the ring keeping it a secret from me for my husband which was awesome. My first ring gold and white gold always gets comments from people, I love it."

- Wendy, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"I first met Ian and his team in Kelburn about 20 years ago and since I have had beautifully crafted ear rings, bracelets and other amazing work that was created by his team. Faultless alterations to inherited rings to bring out the best and beautifully designed individual rings to mark memories. Let's not forget also the amazing service as well and care when I have broken something or had it replaced!! Love these people!!"

- Sam Ah Kit, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"Excellent quality, excellent customer service!"

- Emma, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"Great personal service and an amazing finished project. A good combination of listening to my ideas but giving good professional advice about my ring."

- Elsie, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"We had a great, streamlined experience from start to finish (and afterwards too!). Considering I knew very little about jewelry and absolutely nothing about design when I walked into the store, the patience on display and the attention to detail were exemplary. I wanted the team to meet a specific deadline and my expectations were clearly surpassed with-respect-to the final product, the timelines, the quality and most importantly, the craftsmanship. Everybody I had the pleasure of interacting with went to great lengths to keep the customer first (A huge shout out to Ellie here!). I cannot recommend a better place that emphasizes the trait of starting with the customer and then working backwards to deliver stunning results."

- AV, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"Village Goldsmith are just fantastic. Not only do they have fantastic jewellery and a great store in Wellington but their customer service is incredible whether you are there in person or buying online. Dani Shand in particular makes dealing with them so easy. When we were getting our wedding rings she helped us with designs and kept us updated every step of the way. Weddings can be a stressful time and getting rings organised is so important because they symbolize your commitment. Dani made it all so easy. She is a huge credit to Village Goldsmith. We'll be using them again for sure."

A huge thank you to everyone at The Village Goldsmith!!"

- Tegan Snowball & Eden Willis , Queenstown

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"I had come to village on behalf of a friend who was going to propose and wanted some help getting a ring. The staff were very helpful through the whole process, answered all questions and gave a variety of options to choose from. The couple were delighted with the result and blown away by the valuation when they got it insured. 5 stars"

- Tamsin Hooper, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"I first dealt with the Village Goldsmith when they were in Kelburn maybe 35 years ago or longer when I was so impressed with Ian's friendly but professional and talented approach. Then when I met my husband to be, Ian made first, my engagement ring and then both my husband's and my wedding rings. All the rings were just as we wanted and beautiful. At this stage the Goldsmith was a City Goldsmith not really a Village one anymore having moved to the CBD but somehow they have kept the personal and intimate ambience. Then my husband had a terminal illness and I lost him. Ian and his team designed a bracelet, which combined our two wedding rings. They made it so beautifully and it was given to me with a genuine hug and sincerity. I wear this beautiful bracelet all the time and it means so much to me. Can I score The Village Goldsmith 100 out of 10 please."

- Kaye, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"I found Bryleigh extremely helpful, I chopped and changed my mind (and the design) a bit and really had no idea what I was doing, I felt like she made what would have been a really difficult decision making process really easy! and super stoked with the final product, so is the fiancèe!"

- Vince Smith, Wellington

The staff picked up on this and I left feeling reassured that it would be well cared for. I also got it back much sooner than they said I would, and the most special thing of all is that now the ring is restored to it's original glory and every time I look at it I am reminded of the special bond my parents had. I am thrilled that I get to see it the way my mum saw it on the day my dad proposed all those years ago. Thanks Village Goldsmith, you really exceeded my expectations!"

- Andrea Creighton, Wellington

Thanks so much for taking all of the stress out of what could have been a very stressful process. Would absolutely recommend your company to anyone and everyone. Thanks again!"

- Matt, New Plymouth

"Fabulous, knowledgeable staff. Top quality stones and craftsmanship. Beautiful new shop."

- Jen, Whangarei

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"You'd think living across the ditch in Australia would make this too difficult to bother working remotely for a wedding band (or in my partner's case, the engagement ring in the first instance). But the team at Village Goldsmith are honestly phenomenal. The attention to detail, the flexibility, the care, the customisation. Everything. Couldn't think of anywhere better for the important and memorable moments of life!"

"I give The Village Goldsmith a 5 star rating for two reasons: firstly, because it's such an amazing treasure trove of stunning jewellry; and secondly, because my daughter used to work there, so I know the awesome work that goes on."

- Margaret Arthur, New Plymouth

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"Every time we have visited or contacted Village Goldsmith we have been treat by friendly and professional staff; nothing has been any trouble to them. We were looking for wedding rings that wee a little bit different to the usual and came across a beautiful ring that was platinum with a gold symbol on the front; when we asked if they could reverse this they said they could and gave us a quote - we were surprised at the reasonable price. After some consideration we thought it would be lovely to have rings to match our wedding theme - 1920's and after finding a symbol we both liked asked if they incorporate this into the ring - they did and we couldn't be more pleased - it is amazing. We get to wear the rings i just over a week and can't wait to show them off! Thank you Village Goldsmith and the wonderful team you have there :-)"

- Bev Cochrane, Raumati

- Caroline, Pauatahanui

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"The Village Goldsmith made me a beautiful ring from estate jewellery. The communication was excellent during every step of the process. The jeweller met with me on several occasions and I was always made to feel like my ring was as important to them as it was to me. I was thrilled with both the process and the end product. Highly recommended."

- Elaine, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"I am over the moon with the ring my fiance and Ian made for me. I love the ring, it was beautifully presented in a wooden box which is a little different! Ian was super friendly and was there to answer the questions I had after receiving the ring! From all accounts, he was easy to work with during the ring making process too. I highly recommend (and have been recommending to my friends) Village Goldsmith!."

- Annalise, New Plymouth

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"Great service and the item that Ian designed will be treasured and handed down in our family line."

- Ellen, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"After the theft of all my jewellery while overseas I felt the need to replace a few special items so went to Ian for assistance. Despite being in the throws of renovation The Village Goldsmith staff were most welcoming and helpful. After much discussion I decided to purchase a very special ring with a coloured stone rather than the diamonds that were stolen. I love it. It represents all the pieces that I no longer have. Thank you Ian so much for your time and expertise. The new showroom is fantastic."

- Helen, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"Service was very good. Interest was in helping me rather than making a sale. They went the extra mile..."

- Kevin Carr, Wellington

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

"We had my engagement ring made with Village Goldsmith 5 years ago. They took the time to ask what I was after, and show multiple options and ideas within our budget. They worked with us to make some changes, and were quick to have stones in for me to view, and for the ring to be finished. We then had our wedding rings made with them, with the same amazing warm, friendly and efficient service. I recommend them to anyone looking to buy or have wedding jewellery made!"

- Rebecca, New Plymouth/Abu Dhabi

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

- Dianne, Wellington

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."

- Alison, Dunedin

Citrine yellow gold ring with diamond halo

"I have been a Village Goldsmith client for many years. The quality, service and craftsmanship are always outstanding.

VG keep exceeding my expectations every time!"

Couldn't recommend more and will definitely be coming back for our wedding bands!"

"Our journey together, planning our big day has been greatly enhanced by the wealth of experience that the team at Village Goldsmith has provided, from helping in selection of the right engagement ring, to listening to our story and finding just the perfect wedding bands, for us our journey has been awesome and just as fun having the team at VG just by our sides, we highly recommend them to all."

"Because you were wonderfully helpful. I had chosen earrings for my daughter in London which you sent to her. There were quite a few hold-ups at the ‘customs depot’ in London which you dealt with and made sure the earrings got to my daughter."
