Our Story

Heritage Jewellers

Heritage Jewellers was established In 1990, although previous jewellers have occupied this site for over 85 years. Current owner, Rachelle Henham, purchased the business In 2023 after her parents, Kathryn & Warren had run the store for 25 years.

We take pride in presenting a store which is welcoming with its modern, fresh appearance. Our aim is to find the right solution to our customers' needs, provide excellent customer service and supply a unique selection of leading jewellery and watch brands. This way of business led Heritage Jewellers to winning the Nationwide Jewellers Retailer of the Year award in 2002.

Being a member of Nationwide Jewellers, Australasia's largest buying group, gives us a wide selection of product at competitive prices and keeps us in touch with the latest jewellery trends. We take pride in having one of the largest Pandora selections in the top of the South Island. Because we're not a chain store, this allows is to retain our independent, refreshing look compared to many city stores. Our stock features a mix of both contemporary and traditional styles.

Growing up in the Karamea & Westport region, Rachelle enjoys the local environment with its stunning rainforests, amazing rivers, secluded beaches and rugged mountains - all the best you can get for fishing, tramping, camping, mountain biking and just relaxing. The Buller District has a rich history of mining and still today has New Zealand's largest, most productive coal mines.

We encourage you to come & enjoy our town and call into Heritage Jewellers, "For Precious Memories".
