About us


Jewel Beetle is a partnership between Jewellers Allison Judge (Middle) and Yvon Smits (right), together they have a wealth of jewellery making and design expertise. Drawing on their past experiences of working in Europe and the UK their jewellery is infused with both European and New Zealand style.

Take two classically trained jewellers, mix them with a dose of Nelson sunshine and some fresh sea air and you have Jewel Beetle. Both Allison and Yvon combine their varied skills and distinct style to design and manufacture unique quality handmade jewellery using precious metals and gemstones.
