ABOUT US

Our founder, Richard Donnell established Donnell Jewellers in 1975. The retail store and workshop was located in the Triangle Chambers building in High Street, Christchurch, New Zealand. Donnell Jewellers traded from this location for over 40 years. However, in February 2011, the building was severely damaged by the Christchurch Earthquake, and later demolished.
