MONETTE – JEWELLERY DESIGNER
I love the challenge of bringing a clients vision, thoughts and ideas from a drawing to a beautifully finished custom made piece of jewellery.
I work on the principle that the style of jewellery is classic and elegant and shows off the natural beauty of the stones or pearls.
I will work with you to design and create your dream piece of jewellery or remodel an existing family heirloom.
Book a consultation, where you can view my designs and I’ll take you through the process of designing a unique ring or piece of jewellery.
Regards, Monette Blackborow
DAVID – DIAMOND EXPERT
Book a consultation and I’ll be your guide choosing the perfect Diamond.
During your consultation we will discuss the four main principles of choosing a Diamond, the 4C’s – Colour, Clarity, Carat and Cut. The Cut is one of the most import aspects of buying a Diamond. The cut determines how well your Diamond will sparkle with flashes of light and the rainbow of colours known as fire. The all important WOW factor.
ANTHEAS have been selling Diamonds in New Zealand for almost 40 years. We works closely with international suppliers to find beautifully cut Diamonds that are ethically sourced with assured provenance.
Regards, David Blackborow
THE HISTORY OF ANTHEAS – FINE JWELLERY
Murray Smith started working at the prestigious firm Reins Jewellers of Invercargill under the management of his father Frank Smith in 1961. Over time Murray took over the general management of the firm and invested in shares in the company before buying his father out when he retired in 1972.
In 1980 Murray sold Reins and moved to Auckland with his wife Anthea and three daughters where they opened Antheas Antiques in the city. Six years later Murray and Anthea moved the shop to Remuera. In 2017 Murray and Anthea’s youngest daughter Monette and her husband David bought the business. Today the business is Antheas Jewellers Ltd, a fine jewellery boutique where virtually every piece of jewellery is classically designed by Monette & David and made in New Zealand. Antheas still specialise in large Diamonds and high quality coloured gemstones. See Rings, Diamonds, Jewellery and Services pages for further information.
