Let's talk
Why work with a MASTER Jeweller?

 The idea of custom design jewellery feels like the ultimate gift. 

Family gems repurposed in a new design is a beautiful sentimental way to honour your lineage.  Choosing stones according to the birth month of your loved ones is a unique form of expression.

To design a custom made item is a sensible new approach that fits into the sustainable mentality, an alternative to overconsumption of lesser quality Items. A classy attitude to adorn something of higher quality with meaningful significance.Not only a piece of wearable art, but jewellery was also often a way of transferring wealth or hiding wealth.

Gary - Master Jeweller

Born into a world surrounded by fine jewellery, his natural inheritance was to become a Master Jeweller. At 16, he was accepted as an apprentice at the legendary Graff Diamonds in London Hatton Garden
like his father; he started his glamourous career specialising solely in Diamond mounting. His reputation for excellent work for celebrities like Dame Vera Lynn, Christopher Biggins, Boyzone, Renault Williams F1 Racing Team, British Airways, and British Caledonian Airways led to commissions from the Georgian royal family and the president of Gambia. Years later, a visit to the shores of New Zealand inspired a vision to open a lifelong dream; Meaden Master Jewellers, in the heart of Auckland city.
