What our customers are saying


"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. Thank you Yvon for all your help."
Greg Gibson-Texas, USA

ring signet mens gold"I'd like to thank you for the beautiful signet ring you made for me. I am very happy with the result. The ring is superbly hand crafted within a very reasonable time. The balance is exactly right and therefore it “sits” on my finger without any feeling of discomfort. The engraving is precisely as I like it to be.I can highly recommend your shop to anyone looking for great personal service and a specially designed and manufactured piece of jewelry".   J. Van Der Heide, Nelson




ring gold"Having a special ring designed is certainly fun, but can be a bit overwhelming as well. The team at Jewel Beetle were terrific! They listened, minimized our fears, and then come up with 3 awesome designs from which to choose. They even worked a tight timetable to accommodate a specific date for us. The ring is perfect and even more stunning than I had hoped".
Jerri Pirc, Richmond


"After getting engaged in the beautiful Marlborough Sounds we found the Jewel Beetle in Nelson town and loved that shop from the very beginning. Yvon was very helpful and supportive in finding the perfect engagement ring and we even saw two rings that might become the wedding rings. After returning to Austria and getting everything ready for the wedding we decided to go for the rings we saw in Nelson, so we contacted Yvon for support – everything worked perfect and after some emails conversations back and forth about sizing, options, postage and so on we received a little parcel here in Austria with our wedding rings from Jewel Beetle in Nelson. Again thanks so much for the great support Yvon!"

Citrine silver band ring
Hello lovely ladies…I am indeed enjoying my ring and I have had many wonderful comments on how beautiful it is, and a couple of friends that have tried to slip it into their pockets when I wasn’t looking , naughty :) I love my new finger adornment, thank you…I can also wear it on the other thumb and two fingers, mixing it up a bit".
