Fantastic merchandise and excellent service

This shop should be #1. All of their jade is guaranteed locally sourced, their designs are great and their customer service is second to none. I cannot praise them highly enough.

The customer service was quite good and they sales people seemed to know what they were talking about. What I found frustrating is that they would only have one off's. It was also on the expensive side and I found the exact same pieces (the guaranteed New Zealand Jade) at the Antarctic Centre Christchurch for cheaper.

It was always a highlight going into Westland Greenstone and having a chat with Bernie and the boys and watch jade carvings and jewellery being produced.However times have changed and this shop and factory now displays a lot of cheaper general tourist items and has lost it`s uniqueness There is still some nice jade pieces displayed but not a patch...

This quirky little store ( not so little on the inside) offers you an outstanding range of giftware. The jewellery that we saw here were one-offs , which made nicer gifts. I purchased several gifts inside and I assure you the recipients of the gifts have loved them. The interesting bit to this is that out the back of the... More

This shop has a large range of greenstone and other minerals and stones jewellery. The prices seemed good. There are greenstone carvings and pendants and a range of other giftware including shirts. You can also go into the workshop to see the carvers at work which was great.

Greenstone, aka Jade, or pounamu as the Maori people called it, is only found in certain areas of the West Coast of the South Island. Mainly the Hokitika area or Milford Sound area. Westland Jade stocks only New Zealand Jade. Many other shops around NZ, including Hokitika, will sometimes stock items made from Chinese Jade - similar but not the... More

In late April 2009 we stopped at Westland and left with 4 large greenstone necklaces and an assortment of modest necklaces and earrings. Being able to see the craftspeople at work was impressive. A very professional operation, offering quality merchandise. We would rate this a must-visit for anyone interested in fine, unique remembrances of New Zealand. C. McCann, Maryland, USA
