We were traveling from the US and were visiting Nelson for two days when we luckily discovered Jewel Beetle and Yvon. She was helpful, knowledgeable and went out of her way to see to it that we got what we were looking for. She even met us after-hours so we could make our final decision. We just received the custom set earrings here in Texas and my wife couldn’t be happier.
