SEE US AT THE JWNZ SPRING TRADE FAIR STANDS 26 & 27
Introducing Grant George, Operation Manager at Morris & Watson Group, who marks 40 years with the company this year. Where do you live and who do you share your home with? Annie and I live in an Eco-village located 4km north of Kaiwaka (www.kohatutoa.nz). During my working week in Auckland, I share an old ramshackle villa called Oakdene with a close friend.
Tell us about your history with Morris & Watson (MW). I have had two stints at MW. As a teenager I was still living in my hometown of Whitianga and decided I wanted to be a jeweller. I moved to Auckland and started at 348 Marketing, a wholesale jewellery division of MW. I worked at 348 Marketing until Lew Morris closed it down and made most employees redundant. Lew felt I was worth a gamble and offered me a job refining and alloying at MW proper. This lasted six months until I was offered a job at Coleman Industrial Services Ltd (smalltime opposition). We built all our own casting gear, produced solder filled wire for chain and developed cutting edge refinery techniques. We even did the unthinkable and recycled the cellulose acetate from Xray plates into glasses frames, after removing the silver chemically, instead of the standard burn technique. Under funding finally overtook our enthusiasm. I bought a Kombi and went tripping around the South Island. The Kombi blew up in the Haast Past. There I was on the side of the road when Peter Minturn pulled over to help a stranger in trouble, then was surprised to recognise me through his involvement with Coleman’s. This led to Peter offering me a job. The big break came when Barry Hedges, a friend at MW, offered me an opportunity to setup a Cast Dept in May 1983.
As Operation Manager what are your responsibilities? My role kept expanding. I found myself regularly supporting the managers (Refinery, Chain, Engineering, Vault, and Fabrication). In 2017 management requested I move into the role of Operation Manager. I assist managers
with requests for new technologies, HR, performance reviews, Health / Safety, future planning, problem solving, costing and sharing KPIs. At present I am chairing a focus group to expand the Refinery, Casting and Finishing Departments to address growth and vision. We also are expanding our chain production capabilities with new technologies. David Morris has a strong belief to reinvest profits back into the business for future prosperity.
Do you have a mentor? My Zen teacher Roshi Amala Wrightson ( www. aucklandzen.org.nz) is a strong example of living her purpose and truth, whilst constantly giving to all in need. Her advice was transmitted to me through the body practice of meditation and dokusan (personal interviews). To be present in this moment with an allowing, compassionate energy. What advice do you offer to industry newbies? Turn up. It does not matter how talented you are unless you turn up consistently.
Your team would describe you as … A team player and hopefully a good listener.
Tell us about a special moment in your working career … Visiting a leading casting house in New York and realising we could show them a thing or two… not to say there was not valuable information shared on both sides. How do you relax away from the business? I practice Zen meditation and at home, sit under a giant Puriri tree in the mornings. I also practice DUP (Dance of Universal Peace, a Sufi practice of devotion to unconditional love through singing and dancing in unison),
Most memorable holiday? A five-day tramp in the highlands of Thailand on the border of Myanmar. In contact with authentic villages where poverty and generosity of community demonstrated a different way of life. This was an enlightening experience challenging my perception of the individualist western lifestyle.
Most adventurous thing you have done? Swimming with the Humpback whales in the outer Tongan islands (Haápai). The power of connecting with a curious calf and mother after battling a panic attack with an over tight wet suit, the size and care of these majestic creatures is mind blowing. What’s on your bucket list? To revegetate parts of our Ecovillage community land in native trees. Favourite pieces of jewellery? My old 1940’s Omega watch the company gifted me for 20 years’ service and paid to have it refurnished after 40 years’ service. The natural shaped, banded piece of pounamu Annie gifted me after our first Womad adventure and a silver ring made after Antonia Morris (the company’s 4th generation Morris) organised an Admin team building exercise where we all created personal rings at the Jewellers Creative. Plans for the future … I have joined a group www.empathyangels.co.nz of NVC (Non-Violent Communication) practitioners spreading empathy via live, free one-hour zoom sessions. We are not councillors and are not there to fix, analyse or give advice, simply listen with an open non-judgemental heart and reflect on what we think we have heard and guess at what is important to the person. This powerful way of relating in relationship has enhanced my life beyond words.
Greatest indulgence? I enjoy bespoke craft beer especially when its brewed and consumed on the premise. My favourite commercial craft beer right now is Stoke ‘Hazy’. I also enjoy organic food prepared with love.
TOP BILLING FOR TWO
For the first time in history two stones have fetched prices north of US$30 million in a single sale. Sotheby’s New York set two world records for gemstones, one for a 55.22 carat Mozambique ruby known as the ‘Estrela de Fura 55.22’ and one for a 10.57 carat fancy purplish-pink diamond referred to as the ‘Eternal Pink’. They fetched identical prices of US$34.8 million.
The 23.78ct. rough that yielded the Eternal Pink was mined by De Beers at its Damtshaa mine in Botswana. It took six months for Diacore to fashion it into a ‘bubble gum’-hued cushion cut.
Estrela de Fura means ‘Star of Fura’ in Portuguese. The name refers to the company that mined the stone and has nine ruby mining licenses in Mozambique. Just two rubies have ever exceeded US$15 million at auction, Sotheby’s says.
A JEWEL TO TELL THE TIME
New from Van Cleef & Arpels’ Alhambra collection.
The Sweet Alhambra watch - 22.7 x 22.7mm 18ct rose gold case; 18ct rose gold bezel; 18ct rose gold dial; 18ct rose gold bracelet and carnelian. Bracelet: 18ct rose gold (of course!)
IT CAME WITH A STORY
A Patek Philippe ref. 96 Quantieme, one of only eight known and one of three with this dial configuration, garnered US$6.2 million at the Phillips in Association with Bacs & Russo auction in Hong Kong,
Its value was heightened with the mystique of its backstory. Aisin-Gioro Puyi, the last emperor of the Qing dynasty, had given the watch to his interpreter, Georgy Permyakov, while he was imprisoned in the Soviet Union (1945-1950).
In 1967 Puyi passed away in Beijing at age 61. His life would later be dramatised by Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1987 cinematic success, The Last Emperor.

JWNZ SHOW TIME AND IT’S DOUBLE THE BUBBLES
The JWNZ Fair at the RNZYS, Westhaven, Auckland, on September 10th promises to be another impressive success. More than 60 tables will be on show with the latest products and services, plus some firm favourites.
“Many exhibitors and visitors said last year’s fair was the best ever and we will
continue along the same lines, keeping it boutique-style and sustainable,” said Fair organiser Debbie Whiting. “We don’t want it to grow to a stage that makes it unaffordable for some of our smaller members.
“Visitors will be greeted by some familiar exhibitor faces and some new.
As well, a contingent of our trans-Tasman cousins will be joining us, for example, it is great to see Najo back again.
“This year we will have an additional exhibition area upstairs. The Squadron’s Members’ Lounge will host Najo, Evident, Lagani Diamonds, Gerrim and Wildside Gifts. Free muffins with your coffee order
its exquisite pink opal, sapphire and diamond ring masterfully set in 9ct yellow gold. It is just one of many designs featured in Gerrim’s latest catalogue to be released at the fair. Stand 50

DIVE INTO DEEP TIME
Unveiled in Greece and described as a ‘dramatic spectacle of a showcase’ at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, Louis Vuitton’s Deep Time high jewellery collection was billed as ‘taking its wearers on a journey of epic proportions’. Deep Time is the fifth high jewellery collection designed by Francesca Amfitheatrof, artistic director of watches and jewellery for the Maison.
The designer commented on the inspiration behind the collection: “At Louis Vuitton we are as ever adventurers, travelling to extraordinary, unexpected places. Deep Time will transport you deeply into the past, to a time and place that is so remote and perhaps even difficult to comprehend.
“But at the same time, the stones - these treasures that span millennia - will bring you right there, to the beginning of the planet and into a history of the world and its mystical geological legacy.”
The collection is explored through two acts of geology and life, and, featuring a record number of precious stones, is Louis Vuitton’s largest high jewellery collection to date.
GABI TOLKOWSKY (1939 –2023)
Sir Gabriel ‘Gabi’ Tolkowsky, one of the world’s most revered diamond cutters, died in May aged 84. He will be remembered for a string of remarkable achievements during a career spanning seven decades and was knighted by the Belgian government in 2003 for services to the diamond industry.
He created the Tolkowsky round brilliant diamond cut that has set the global standard for quality diamond cutting. And In 1989, Tolkowsky was handed what any cutter would consider the ultimate challenge, a 599ct. stone. At the time it was one of the largest pieces of rough ever found. Tolkowsky headed the team turning it into polished.
The resulting 273.85 ct. modified heart-shape, dubbed the Centenary, took nearly three years to create, including two years of preparation and one year of cutting. Tolkowsky called
it the “smiling diamond” and it is still considered one of the world’s great gemstones.
CHOPARD BROADENS ITS REACH
Broadening its appeal to Generation Z and an expanding Asian audience, Chopard has adopted South Korean girl group aespa to front their latest campaign.
The band, currently comprising Karina, Winter, Giselle and Ningning and likened to a Korean Spice Girls, will front campaigns for Chopard’s Happy Sport, Happy Diamonds, Ice Cube, Alpine Eagle, Precious Lace and My Happy Hearts collections.
It’s billed as the world’s first Crocs engagement ring charm. Jessica Flinn Fine Jewellery (JFFJ), of Sheffield, England, has introduced a new ring charm, set in silver and featuring a 1.10ct green sapphire that can be slotted into Crocs to wear out and about. Brilliant cut 0.010ct lab-grown diamonds form a halo for the gems to neatly perch on.
The charms can be securely fastened with the ring featuring a screw flat back that firmly attaches to the Croc. The engagement ring charm price starts from £1,790 and is made to order in 6-8 weeks.
JFFJ is also offering a design-yourown service, where customers can choose from a variety of gemstones
THE NEW WEARER OF THE CROWN
including teal sapphires, salt and pepper diamonds and tourmalines to lab-grown diamonds.
Jessica Flinn-Allen, CEO of JFFJ said: “You might be thinking, ‘how on earth can this be real?’ Well, we do
nothing by halves. We love pushing the boundaries of jewellery here at JF HQ and we’re looking for fellow rule-breakers to create something completely unique and brilliantly bonkers!”
Tupac Shakur’s iconic ‘crown’ ring, which the rapper designed and commissioned months before his untimely death in 1996, sold for US$1,016,000 at Sotheby’s New York.
A bidding war pushed the purchase price up to more than three times the lot’s high estimate of US$300,000. Typically, auction winners remain anonymous, but not this time. In an Instagram story, rapper Drake posted a picture of himself holding the newly acquired piece of jewellery. Sotheby’s confirmed that he was the buyer shortly afterward.
Tupac wore the ring to the 1996 MTV Video Music Awards in what would turn out to be his last public appearance. Three days later, the 25-year-old rapper was shot four times in a drive-by attack in Las Vegas.

A DOUBLE DAZZLE FOR TIFFANY
Tiffany & Co has announced its acquisition of an exceptional gemstone: the Tiffany Muzo Emerald.
Sourced from the Muzo Mines of Colombia in 2019, the rare rectangular square-cut Tiffany Muzo Emerald weighs more than 10ct and boasts exceptionally high clarity, a superior degree of transparency and exceptional colour. The stone is virtually inclusion free and showcases the perfectly saturated green colour for which Muzo emeralds are so highly coveted.
The Tiffany Muzo Emerald will debut alongside the northern autumn launch of the Tiffany Blue Book 2023: Out of the Blue.
Meanwhile Tiffany & Co has reopened its flagship Tokyo store after renovation with an artwork by English artist Damien Hirst. Designed to catch the eye of passers-by, the store features a huge floral design that begins as a blue backdrop at street level before ‘blooming’ and growing upwards to become a dazzling display of pink,
white, green, and red petals.
The three-storey building has a reflective shell that has been designed to suggest the way artisans cut jewellery. A set of 292 aluminium honeycomb and glass panels have been arranged onto the façade at different angles to reflect the light from different directions.
Turning the ordinary into extraordinary
When asked about his unusual creations, Sidney would explain: "I like to do something creative, different and unusual every year. The things I do are works of art, it's just lots of fun and I love what I do!"
A number of Sidney’s creations were auctioned by Bonhams recently including ...
The world looked different through the eyes of the late San Francisco artist, jeweller, and philanthropist Sidney Mobell (1926 – 2022). Sidney used his incredible creativity, unconventional business sense and 'Midas Touch' to transform ordinary objects into extraordinary works of art, which set him far apart from conventional jewellers. A firm favourite among both the San Francisco social set and Hollywood glitterati, it all began with a gold replica Mickey Mouse watch, which led to a commission from the Disney family. From then on, he released a gemstudded object every year for nearly 30 years, paying a keen mind to present culturally relevant objects of the day in a never-before-seen context.
The highly anticipated remake of the film Barbie released in July starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling is the pinkest thing ever to hit the big screen and has set the tone for a fabulous fun style that promotes pink as the must-have colour of the summer.
Contemporary designers are using classic yellow, white or pink gold, enamel and brightly-coloured gems to bring this of-the-moment hue to life in bijoux or precious jewellery.
Cleopatra and Marc Antoine transformable earrings in 18ct gold with enamel portraits, rubies, orange sapphires, pink sapphires, fire opals and morganite from Lydia Courteille.

Carved to tell a story
JWNZ Trade Fair ‘veteran’ Deane Moreton will be back again at this year’s event to show Moreton Jewellery’s collection of handcrafted pounamu (NZ’s greenstone), which is found on the West Coast and sourced through Ngāi Tahu‑approved suppliers.
The Christchurch company, which was established in 2000, will tempt fair visitors with pounamu set in sterling silver in contemporary and traditional designs.
“Moreton Jewellery design and craft beautiful jewellery inspired by the unique elements that make our country special,” said Deane. “Moreton Jewellery has captured the essence of New Zealand and each collection reflects the beauty of Aotearoa. We are proud of the quality and care that goes into each piece. Our pieces are crafted to the highest standards.”
Deane, who learnt his craft working with his father in the family business, now has a support team of pounamu carvers and lapidary workers, with each of their designs telling a story of New Zealand.
The history of pounamu is entwined with our country’s history. It has always been revered as precious and valuable. Maori have a legend about a taniwha (a giant water being) called Poutini who guards the mauri (life force) within the treasured stone. The mana (spiritual force) of pounamu comes from Kahue (or Ngahue) an atua (God). Taniwha Poutini, as protector of the stone, is the servant of Kahue.
Maori believe that the pounamu taonga (treasured possession) increases in mana (prestige) as it passes from one generation to another. The most prized taonga are those with known histories going back many generations. These are believed to have their own mana and historically were often
given as gifts to seal important agreements.
Moreton Jewellery pieces are sold throughout the country in gift stores, museums and galleries, with most of the international interest coming from Australia.
Alongside the company’s core wholesale business, Moreton Jewellery is also a supplier of Morris & Watson gold and silver chain.
LucieBY FV JEWELLERY
WITH GRAPHIC INTENT
Zoe Chutong Huang recently graduated from London’s Central Saint Martins School and did so with a debut collection with a strong visual impact, which well describes the original creative intent of her brand, Z/CH Jewellery.
“I see jewellery as a means of communication between the human body and its emotions; a mixture of art and many other skills,” said Zoe. “The intention is to work using different materials and techniques and to study how a piece interacts with the body once it is worn. Furthermore, I pursue the idea of a neutral and contemporary aesthetic, which can finally break the old rules of gender identity.”

Let’s get sculptural …
Featured are the recent works of local designers who can describe their pieces as ‘sculptural’ i.e. blurring the lines between jewellery and art, wearable and non-wearable.
“A re-model - the client wanted a theme of 'shooting stars' - it was made using her 9ct yellow gold, diamonds and rubies from another older ring, The new band is silver.”

“Holding the moon. A client requested a design that represents the astrological birth stones of their family. Known as the Moti stone, the pearl represents financial knowledge and positive thoughts.”

Glidar: “A powerful piece inspired by the exhilaration of hang-gliding. This statement ring is set in 14ct white gold with 51 brilliant cut diamonds. It looks as good on a coffee table as it does upon the hand.”
– Ian Douglas, The Village Goldsmith, Wellington
“A client of Irish descent wanted a Claddagh ring. The beautiful tsavorite is the perfect ‘Irish’ green, accompanied by small diamonds and set in white gold. Initially I carved the ring in wax and fine-tuned it after the casting stage.”
Brian Barrett, BHB Designs Ltd, Wellington
“A wall mounted sculpture - Pekapekatou-roa with Kaihua (NZ Longtailed Bat with NZ native jasmine). Sterling silver, 18ct yellow gold, mother-of-pearl shell and oak. Diameter 175mm x 80mm deep (out from the wall).”

"Natural surface textures have always interested me. The slate pieces in the brooches were collected from near Ohau and Mt Cook, where the harsh climate breaks larger pieces into multiple finer longish shapes. Having withstood many freeze-thaw and intense heat conditions the slate is surprisingly stable. The brooches themselves fit into a slate base for display and can be removed for wear. I have made similar series with pendants too and have shoe-boxes full of slate collected from all over the world.
“NZ slate, sterling silver, 18ct yellow gold, garnets, slate base cut from a tile (most likely Asian origin), and Perspex.”
– Juerg P Muff, Orbit Jewellery, Queenstown
Sterling silver and acrylic brooch. “I have long enjoyed the art of American Alexander Calder, particularly his sculptures, mobiles and stabiles This brooch has been inspired by his fun and colourful work and brightens up a black coat on a dull winter's day.”
– Stephanie Lorimer, Lorimer Jewellery, Ophir
“With a Central Otago gold mining theme, a wedding set in white and yellow gold with a raw diamond. The diamond looked a bit like the schist we have around here and the fingerprints symbolise the hard work you need to put into not only getting gold out of the ground, but also what does go into a successful relationship.”
– Les Riddell, Objects of Art Ltd, Cromwell
“Sterling silver, topaz and diamond ring design. Handcrafted out of barnacles found along the Taranaki coast, using the lost wax technique. Resembling not just the sea, but also Mount Taranaki as a sculpture that can be worn. One topaz has been set upside down, grainset small diamonds adding a sparkly touch.”
– Belinda Lubkoll, Ringcraft Moana, Oakura, Taranaki
“Hurricane pendant. Taming the storm, 18ct white gold, 2.55ct tanzanite and 0.71ct total diamond weight.”
– Anthony Licht, Goldsmiths Gallery Ltd, Hamilton
And from international collections …
Some people may regard it as unusual, to others, sculptural jewellery epitomises true individuality.
This crocodile rocks! Madrid-based jewellery artist Wallis Hong sought to impress at the Geneva International Gem and Jewellery Show. He used titanium to create this crocodile brooch with textured skin, that is both voluminous and light. The creature is holding a purple sapphire in its jaw and is embellished with sapphires and diamonds.
From Parisian designer Charlotte Romer, Studio C, Paris, her Mundus cuff. Made up of aluminium, sandblasted and hand-polished, the jewel is adorned with a champagnecoloured topaz and six fancy diamonds.
Assael, of New York, ‘Frame’ earrings with black jadeite and Sardinian coral in 18ct yellow gold.
‘This is Not a Ring’ byHungarian Pal Kepenyes’ mixed metal necklace. From Theo Fennell ‘s Chelsea studio, carved mammoth ivory and quartz snake stud earrings. Boucheron, Paris. Murano glass, diamonds and lacquer on a resin band. New Yorker Ted Murhling’s brass cuff and belt buckle.
Precious and meticulously structured, brooches and pins are once again wooing jewellery lovers, thanks to some new creations elaborated in respect of tradition, but with a contemporary look. Also in the mix are those pieces which come with time-past stories.

A range of our designs of NZ Greenstone, silver, enamel and precious stone jewellery.
Trick-or-treat inspired designs celebrate the young, fun, spookiness and silliness that comes at Halloween, observed in many countries on October 31st.
Taylor Swift’s fans who set their sights on a pair of rings from the brand’s Celestial collection, caused mass global stock shortages for the retailer, global silver jewellery giant Pandora.
Pandora’s new celestial rings went viral online, with one TikTok video amassing more than 8.4m views and 1.6m likes, as Taylor’s fans link the rings to lyrics from a track on the artist’s latest album, Midnights. The Celestial Sparkling Sun Ring and the Celestial Blue Moon Ring encapsulating the lyrics from the hit Midnight Rain: “he was sunshine, I was midnight rain”.
Both styles almost sold out in every market. With yellow gold outperforming other metal options on the market, the Celestial Sparkling Sun Ring sold out quicker than its ‘midnight rain’ counterpart. Google data showed that most searches focussed on either both rings, or just the sun ring. Between 20 May and 20 June’23, searches for ‘Pandora sun ring’ and ‘Pandora moon
and sun ring’ both increased by 5,000% respectively.
Sales will likely rise steeply once more when the rings are back in stock, following Taylor Swift’s announcement detailing her UK and European tour dates, set to take place in the northern Summer 2024.
It was an unbearable northern summer for parts of Europe, with temperatures reaching 46C.
What handled the heat was this Darkmoon watch from the Italian watch brand U-Boat, which can handle temperatures up to 60C thanks to its oil-filled case. It also picks up the meteorological colour scheme and is yours for £1,040.
Time to hop along
We featured a be-jewelled ‘2023, the Year of the Rabbit’, in our Winter JT. Watchmakers take a turn this issue. The rabbit is the fourth sign in the Chinese Zodiac chart and is a symbol of longevity. Those born under this sign tend to be people others like to be around. You are pleasant, agreeable and affectionate.
Harry Winston’s rose gold and diamond model.
Tag Heuer has released a version of its signature Carrera Chronograph in a limited edition for the Chinese New Year. It features red and gold indexes on a fur patterned dial in black and grey. On the case back is a cartoon-style depiction of a red rabbit.
Chopard uses traditional lacquer techniques to depict the year’s animal against a dark night sky. For this Lunar Year, two rabbits leap across the dial beneath the moon.
Animal motifs often feature in Gucci collections, sometimes accompanied by signature emblems or floral patterns as an expression of the House's fascination with the beauty of the natural world. Gold-toned metal with a white cotton bunny motif on glass.
Vacheron Constantin launched two new versions in platinum and rose gold. It’s a handless design with four apertures spread across each quadrant that display hours, minutes, days and date. At the centre is an engraved depiction of a rabbit, sitting atop a Grand Feu dial with floral decoration.
Dior has gone all out with a full scene of a rabbit bounding along beneath the boughs of a tree, set against a backdrop of stars. It’s produced with a combination of gold, mother of pearl and aventurine glass. Limited to 88 pieces.
Piaget’s celebration of the year takes the form of a Grand Feu cloisonné enamel dial watch. Cloisonné is an enamelling technique that involves the use of thin gold wire to depict specific patterns and images. The marble-esque dial is surrounded by 78 brilliant-cut diamonds set into the bezel of the 38mm white gold case. Limited to 38 pieces.

Elsewhere with Boucheron
Unveiled at Paris Haute Couture Week the Boucheron Ailleurs High Jewellery collection is a crowning achievement in Boucheron’s already impressive jewellery history. The concept of ‘elsewhere’ is brought to life in five sets, each one inspired by borderless possibilities and natural, raw forms, from deserts and oceans to mountains and rainforests.
Creative Director Claire Choisne and Studio Boucheron have confronted and mixed worlds and materials one could initially think are contradictory; where diamonds meet pebbles and burnt wood, gold meets rattan and meteorite. In this “elsewhere” there is only one rule: to reveal the beauty and poetry of nature.
Crafted in a palette of beige, sand and creamy blond, the Sand Woman set mimics the shape of the wind whipping sandstorms across the desert in precious materials and, unusually, plantbased rattan. To create the Rotin Diamant (diamond rattan) neck piece, Boucheron’s craftsmen humidified natural fibres, dried them on a brass frame and inserted a golden rod into the material to create the desired shape. These curves of ratan are accompanied by diamond-set leaf shapes in white and yellow gold and accentuated with a central diamond of two carats.
The tropical and humid rainforest was the inspiration for this chapter, which orbits around the Feuillage Diamant (diamond leaf) cuff bracelet with a 37.97-carat green tourmaline. Growing from this central gemstone are ‘leaves’ of woven green plants, which are crafted in lightweight coloured aluminium, bordered by chevrons of diamonds.
Continuing with the theme of plants, the Fleur de Paradis head jewel is perfectly shaped to sit around the contours of the ear with a trio of amethysts, yellow, orange and pink sapphires, fire opal, and vibrant orange lacquer, all in titanium.
As has been its tradition for some time, Boucheron has dedicated a portion of its high jewellery collection to men. The Volcano Man suite is a monochromatic story of power, but done in a way that is shapely and refined.
The Bois Brûlé Diamant necklace uses 3000-year-old burnt marsh oak wood, paved with diamonds in white gold, to position a knot of light reflection just below the Adam’s apple.
The Loup ring takes the shape of a wolf howling to the moon in meteorite, white and grey diamonds and onyx in white gold and platinum
The humble pebble is reinvented for a high jewellery audience. Slowness, silence and softness are the words used to describe this suite of jewels which span elephant heads, coral reefs, seashells and tumbled rocks. The Galet Diamant (diamond pebble) necklace creates graduated towers of hollowed polished pebbles, with pear-shaped diamonds and further diamond pavé, set into the stones themselves like “gold tattoos”.
“The technique was quite complicated because pebbles are heavy and I wanted the necklace to be very light and comfortable,” said Choisne. “Our craftsmen found a way to scoop out the middle and now they are 1.5 mm thin, like an egg shell.”
The Earth Woman set contains four pieces in hues of deep brown, ochre, chocolate and steely grey. To create the Bois Diamant (diamond wood) brooch, Boucheron’s team scanned individual flower petals and recreated their shape in thin slivers of Santos rosewood, pieced together in an openwork gold structure. Diamonds adorn select petals and the very centre of the bloom to add depth, while titanium pistils quiver delicately as the wearer moves. Finally, it is also worth noting that this piece is secured by magnets, which means its sheer size won’t drag on the eventual owner’s clothes.
It’s been a bit of a brutal year so far: ram raids, floods, storms and Cyclone Gabrielle have really tested our ‘collective metal‘ as a nation. But finally, the weather seems to have settled down a bit and glimmers of spring are everywhere. Daffodils and lambs in the paddocks and some much-needed sunshine to warm our souls. It’s also been a pretty tough year in retail for many, but feedback has been more
positive in recent weeks, the orders are beginning to pick up and the election is not far away.
One of the major issues the JWNZ National Council wanted to tackle this year was updating and modernising the rules which are long-winded and not fit for purpose anymore. We anticipated being able to adhere to the Incorporated Societies reregistration process this year, prior to our AGM, when a new set of rules of our society would have been tabled for approval by the members. However, the re-registration period only begins in October 2023 and societies will have 21/2 years, until April 2026, to re-register. This means we will not be able to re-register until 2024. To date, we have completed a draft of our new rules, which will be reviewed once we fully understand the key changes in legislation and how that will affect the JWNZ as an organisation.
The Jewellery and Gem Fair in Hong Kong was interesting. Smaller than in 2019, but in saying that, the Pearl Hall was ‘pumping’. Still a lot of local people wearing masks and cautious about Covid, but optimistic about the future and gradual recovery of visitor
Members of the JWNZ, their staff and many others will remember Malcolm Bishop who passed away in July at the age of 90.
Malcolm lived his life in Eastbourne and is survived by his wife Judy, daughters Melissa and Louise, brother Geoff (Paraguay) and sisters, Josephine (US) and Diana (Whanganui).
Malcolm started his working career with the wholesale distributing jewellery company, H A Montague Ltd and then headed off overseas to catch up with his older brother Geoff in South America.
On return to NZ in the early 60’s, he rejoined the Montague family business and subsequently started up his own jewellery business trading as Malcolm L Bishop Ltd, specialising in greenstone and diamond rings (in association with
Alan Sweeney). Over time, the business expanded into gold jewellery and Malcolm had the NZ agency for Speidel watch bands and Omega watches. He became very well known throughout the NZ jewellery industry and chaired/managed a very successful annual Trade Fair in Wellington. He travelled regularly overseas to source product and the length and breadth of NZ to establish a successful business.
In the late 80’s the watch business that I was involved in merged with Malcolm’s business. Malcolm was an astute businessman who operated in difficult times with heavy import duty, sales tax, the import deposit scheme, import licencing and exorbitant bank interest rates.
In 1993, Malcolm and Judy downsized and formed a new company.
numbers to the fair. I had the pleasure of showing a first-time visitor, Jo Baylis from Jojo B, Hawkes Bay, around the halls, she was suitably impressed and found lots of contacts and new suppliers. So very successful from her point of view.
I look forward to catching up with you all at the JWNZ Spring Trade Fair in Auckland at the RNZYS on Sunday September 10th.

Cambridge jeweller Jesse Taylor passed away in June after a short illness. He was 46.
Completing his degree at Victoria University Design School to establishing his own jewellery range in Wellington, Jesse’s passion and dedication to his craft was evident.
Moving to Japan to attend jewellery design school and becoming a marriage celebrant showcased Jesse’s diverse interests and willingness to explore new opportunities. Returning to New Zealand after nine years in Japan and bringing his son Louis home to New Zealand to start school demonstrated his commitment to family and roots.
Joining his father at Geoff Taylor Goldsmith and utilising his skills in CAD, jewellery manufacturing and problemsolving further enriched his career.
Jesse’s contributions to the company's client base expansion, the development of the website and buying a 3D printer to further his CAD skills was invaluable.
Jesse was highly respected and valued within the trade for his insight, talent and care for others. His ability to create exceptionally beautiful pieces of jewellery and dedication to clients will be sorely missed by many.
Losing someone with such exceptional skills and a positive impact on the industry is a great loss. Jesse’s memory and legacy will continue to live on through the beautiful jewellery he created for clients and the influence he had on those who had the pleasure of knowing and working with him.

2023 JWNZ ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
The JWNZ Annual General Meeting will be held at 2.30pm on Saturday 9th September in the Quarterdeck, Royal
New Zealand Yacht Squadron, 181 Westhaven Drive, Westhaven Marina, Auckland. The JWNZ National Council will meet on the Saturday morning.
RAM RAIDS & ROBBERIES
The JWNZ reiterates its extreme disappointment that, to date, approaches to the Minister of Police and Minister of Justice have received no response. There have been numerous JWNZ members who have had their businesses affected by ram raids and daylight robberies. This has impacted on their ability to carry out their normal business, as well as their staff members, some of whom are suffering from the trauma of these events. What is apparent is that offenders and recidivist offenders understand there are no consequences to their actions, as their age prevents prosecution and they are almost always referred to Youth Aid. Be assured the JWNZ will continue to request dialogue with both the Minister of Police and Minister of Justice in regards criminal actions affecting our members.
The following is an outline of what happens to those offenders who are under 18-years-old.
So, what does Youth Aid do? Youth Aid deals with children and young people under the age of 18 who have offended, are on the verge of offending, are subject to Care and Protection measures or just need help to go in the right direction.
What happens in Youth Court NZ? The young person, their family, the victim, a youth justice coordinator, member(s) of the police and any other
relevant professionals meet to discuss: the offending, the effect this has had on all involved, and a possible plan to address it.
What do NZ Police do? New Zealand Police is an important part of the community. It seeks to prevent crime, improve public safety, detect and bring offenders to account and maintain law and order.

A note for your diary: the 2024 JWNZ Spring Trade Fair will take place at the RNZYS on September 8th.
Busy time of the year. Four months until Christmas and everything needs to fall into place for everyone to be happy. The 16 apprentices taken on for year’s end 2023 are all making their way through the established pathway of learning to gain their Trade Certification as someone who is Qualified, having been assessed and work competent for the Skilled Trade for which they have been trained.
So that’s the starting end, we then have the midway apprentices who are battling with the reality of dealing with everything an apprenticeship can throw at them. This includes the wide range of personalties of the public and workshop and of course, the challenges of the wide range of the work that is required and achieved every day. We have what is termed the ‘Prescriptions for both Manufacturing Jewellery and Watch and Clockmaking’ and every thing covered relates to this. As ‘living documents’ both are updated as needed and both are an excellent account of what has been required by our Trades and for that matter of our Trades in general, since their formalisation under the Master and Apprenticeship of 1865. Some of this makes for fascinating reading, but more of that in another issue.
We then have those apprentices who are getting towards the end of their apprenticeship term and have made good use of their time in the trade. They have recorded enough skills to be mastered in their apprentice record book to gain entry into their final Trade Certificate examination.
I attended the NZHI conference in Wellington, where a room was made available for the Watch and
Clockmaking Trade Certificate examination 2023 to take place. The 2023 Manufacturing Jewellery Trade Certificate examination will be held this year at the RNZYS (Trade Fair venue) at 9.30am, September 10th. There will be four manufacturing jeweller apprentices sitting this year and so if you come across them after the exam, do take the time out to introduce yourself and wish them all the best for their results. I will be showing them through the Fair and introducing them to the apprentice supporters listed below, who have held their hand up as firms that support atthe-bench apprentice training in New Zealand.
Funding is always an issue for JIRBNZ and without our sponsors we simply couldn’t maintain any form of training. Having lost the generous support of JMF through its demise has resulted in an end on end shortfall every year for JIRBNZ The two Industry groups of JWNZ and NZHI have done since inception and still do contribute $10,000.00 and $2,000.00 + gst each year, but that’s it. That’s the Registration Board’s baseline to work from. Not much really and we are expected to get there, but like the
rest of our amazing schools, teachers, nurses doctors and hospitals - get there we do.
I congratulate two apprentices, Paige Lilly and James Matthewman, who have satisfied all of the requirements for the issue of a Trade Certificate and can now refer to themselves as a Qualified, Trade Certified Watch and Clockmaker. Look out for the next group of Qualified Manufacturing Jewellers in the summer JT issue. Good luck to all for their upcoming exams and if you are a supporter who may potentially consider being a sponsor, please do get in touch. It would be much appreciated.– Grant Harrison
