Don't let the low-keyed little building fool you. Inside you'll find the most fantastic variety of high quality jade jewelry and objects crafted on site in the back room. If you're in the market for jade, you absolutely need to stop by this shop.

We were told this is the best spot in Hokitika to buy authentic NZ jade. We walked away with several beautiful and well made pieces of jewelry. The shop owner was very sweet.

We were directed here by the hotel front desk, as this is authentic jewelry, designed and created by a local family of artists. They had the most selection of any store in town, and the best prices. The lady was very helpful in making selections...More

If your not sure about where to get genuine NZ Jade the place is the one to go to. It is family owned and the owner digs and cuts the Jade himself not far from Hokitika. It's a small shop but I liked that there...More

I went into this humble-looking shop without any expectations, and after only a few minutes, I felt really good about it. I had only been inside two other greenstone shops in Hokitika, but I have been looking at greenstone in shops (and museums) since I...More
