Donnell Jewellers focus on bespoke ring design and production. We specialise in the traditional manufacturing, restoration and repair of rings and other jewellery items.
Our history began in High Street in 1952, when Richard Donnell started his apprenticeship at Kennedy's Diamond Rings. In 1972 he purchased his own retail and manufacturing business in High Street and operated from the same location until the 22 Feburary 2011 earthquake closed the retail shop's doors.
We also have a selection of new gold, silver and pearl jewellery for sale. Ask us what we have in stock (or can source for you). Our online store is coming soon.
Donnell Jewellers operates by appointment only.

♦ Custom Ring Design and Making
We can help you design the perfect ring to mark special occasions in your life. You can view and choose the beautiful gemstones you want during the design process. We work with precious metals including high grade white, yellow or rose gold and platinum. We hand manufacture our jewellery. Learn about the different manufacturing processes here.
♦ Jewellery Repair and Restoration
Often jewellery has a high sentimental attachment to it. Valuable pieces are given to mark special occasions, or handed down from generation to generation. Items worn every day need to be repaired or restored to their original condition. With over 60 years manufacturing experience, we can give your worn jewellery a new lease of life.
♦ Jewellery Cleaning and Condition Checks
When you wear jewellery every day, it collects soaps, oils, dirt and other residue. We recommend that you get your regularly worn jewellery cleaned and checked once a year. We can also issue a brief report to keep your insurance company updated your valuable item's condition.
♦ Loose Gemstones
We can supply loose diamonds, sapphires, rubies, emeralds and other precious coloured gemstones. If we don't have the right one in stock, we can source them from our suppliers.
