I just wanted to say THANK YOU for awesome service, from uber fast replies to a query (on a Sunday night too!) I placed my order online, my ring was resized (free of charge) and couriered Monday, arriving Tuesday. Fantastic service and best of all I LOVE my new ring. Thank you so much. Highly recommend
Jo, Christchurch May 2016
I just wanted to express my great delight and gratitude to you for the beautiful restoration of my family jewellery.
By your hands, they have been given a new lease of life and have evolved into new pieces that I may now call family heirlooms.
My grandmother's moonstone necklace- broken, dirty and in disrepair, has turned into a stunning bracelet that features the glory of each bright stone. Her engagement ring, a new diamond set in the middle, and newly plated, now shines like the day she first received it.
Because of your talent, I feel that I can truly honour my grandmother's legacy. Thank you Alex.
Vicky, Auckland, Feb 2016
Dear Lori & Alex,
Thank you so much for the work you did on the engagement ring, you created the unique design perfectly and Steph loves it!
It was a great experience working with you as you made the ring I wanted.
Funnily enough it was a life changing decision deciding to propose and you were very supportive and patient through the whole process which made it so much easier for me.
Looking forward to coming back to get the wedding band done!
Nick, Auckland, July 2015
We came to see you around 21/2/2015 about our engagement ring that we wanted to purchase and make it our own. We couldn’t afford the traditional diamond but wanted something just as good and affordable for us, something with our own signature that was different in its own way in both its look and design.
We wanted to thank you for the beautiful craftsmanship of the ring, it is truly beautiful, unique and a real stunner. The quality of the ring has turned it into a real noticeable ring and it sure does turn heads! Oh wow is the response we get and how beautiful it is….
Thank you so much for making our occasion with a ring that will last us our lifetime together.
We look forward to returning in the future to design the matching wedding band.
Thank you again for making our occasion and the ring so special.
Michelle & Mark Katavich, Auckland Central
Picked up the ring earlier today and OMG! It's amazing.
We had been looking around for a good jeweler with reasonable prices for a long time and without any luck gave up! One night I was randomly surfing the Web and came across your website and walla here we are!
I would just like to thank you and Alex for your PERFECT customer service and PERFECT treatment of my wedding band! I am so happy to be able to wear it again and though I am all the way from East Auckland, the BEAUTIFUL drive out to your studio is so worth it!
Again thank you both and we will definitely come to you for any of our Jewellery needs! !
Kassidy - East Auckland, March 2015

Fantastic job – just love it !!!

We are back from Claire's 21st and thought I would let you know she was thrilled with the bangle. There was a lot of positive comment from others present and several offers to take it of her hands if she didn't like it!!
Thanks again for the wonderful service, it is great to deal with a business that obviously knows the value of great customer service.
Reg, June 2014
OH my goodness, I have the ring and I absolutely love it!!
You were right it is a very stunning ring. I haven’t been this excited about a ring since my engagement ring, which was years ago!!
Thanks heaps to you and Alex for making such a ring fit on my finger!!
Regards, Fee - Feb 2014
I am a new customer to SilverStone and I must highly commend Alex and Lori on all aspects of how they run their business. They are friendly, creative, professional and extremely trustworthy.
My experience was an emotional one having to remodel wedding jewellery I no longer required (if you get my drift). Lori and Alex were very empathetic and made the hard process of starting over a great deal easier.
I love Lori's enthusiasm and Alex literally creates works of art not just jewellery. I can't wait to get started on the second design with the leftover gold from the first remodelling.
I highly recommend SilverStone to all customers new or existing.. I will be a repeat customer that is guaranteed!
When we first decided to get our wedding bands made, Lori and Alex from SilverStone Jewellery came highly recommended. We thought we'd go and see what they could do -- turns out they could have done anything we wanted really with their open minds, creative ideas and helpfulness we were able to combine some of our sentimental jewellery passed down in the family into our new wedding bands.
This was something that was really important to us to have history and love embedded within the metal to make it more than just a ring. They understood this perfectly and were able to create such stunning rings! Without ever trying to coax us into something more we felt we were able to play around with ideas and the price was at least 50% less than what we would have paid at a retailer -- and is professionally valuated at double what we paid for them.
They really looked after us and also allowed us to do a payment plan as at the time we were paying for so many other things for the wedding -- money didn't seem like an issue to them they just wanted it to be perfect for us. I mean really, what else would a bride and groom really want if not that!? Thank you so much guys we love what you have done for us. We will highly recommend you to anyone who asks!

A huge thank you to Lori and Alex of SilverStone Jewellery. We took Pania to them last week with her baby bracelet that had become too tight. Alex and Lori were so lovely with Pania (10 years old), talking to her about what she wants done with her bracelet, how they could cut it off and different options of adjusting it.
They both made Pania feel very special and recognised how important her baby bracelet was to her. They took into consideration the writing on the inside of the bracelet and it was couriered to our home today. It looks fantastic, beautiful and shiny and she will now be able to wear it for many more years to come! Thanks again Lori and Alex.
Please see their website for all your jewellery alterations, designing and jewellery the have ready to buy.
Thanks, Nicola Matthews, Auckland
I’m sure you’ll be pleased to know that the proposal went really well. Enid was completely surprised, and absolutely LOVES her ring! Managed to get the ring and the box over there without her suspecting anything. I proposed at sunset at her family log cabin which overlooks Kootenay Lake in BC, Canada. The cabin was built by her dad and his brothers 30 years ago, and is her favourite place in the whole world. It was a perfect setting.
The amount of complements we’ve had on the ring have been insane. I’m only now starting to realise just how special and unique the ring actually is.
Thanks so much for your prompt supply and delivery.
So enjoyed talking with you, and will definitely keep in touch regarding Jewellery Party.
Your jewellery vision (ideas, promotion, customer service and quality) is outstanding!
Will keep in touch,
Kindest regards, Rachel
Picked up my jewelry from GemLab on Friday and finally got to wear it! Am having lots of fun swapping the rings around in different formations and have already had a few comments on the heart pendant - all positive! thank you for giving me jewelry I can wear rather than have it hiding away in boxes.
Best regards to you both, Ali
When it came to choosing the perfect gift for a very special occasion, I immediately thought of SilverStone Jewellery , having bought beautiful pieces in the past. Lori and Alex went the extra mile to create the perfect gift and it was perfect.
Thank you, Fiona
Thanks so much! This is the third bangle we have ordered from you and we LOVE them! It is for our newest granddaughter and now becoming a tradition in our family;)
I have just been to work and found my ring had been delivered yesterday. Thank you so much, it is absolutely beautiful, nicer than I anticipated! Also thank you for making it quite a bit larger without an additional charge.
I will be putting your website in my Favourites and will check what you have on offer from time to time.
Further to my email last night I am pleased to advise that I received the delivery this morning.
The dragonfly earrings
are absolutely gorgeous, I am very happy with them and am sure my niece will love them to.Should have got a pair for myself :-)
Thank you, Lesley
Just wanted say thank you for the bracelet - I love it!
I've had loads of people comment on it.
Brilliant quick service too.
Ally, February 2013
Love these two testimonials from the giver and the receivor!
I just wanted to send you a quick email about my recent gifts! My amazing partner (Kerry) gifted me the most amazing peridot heart-shaped earrings and an absolutely STUNNING peridot necklace!
I have never been so spoilt in my life! These two pieces are beautifully crafted and are an absolute pleasure to wear. They will be treasured for the rest of my life and I just wanted to thank you for going the extra mile and helping him succeed in pulling the wool over my eyes.
I will definitely be spreading the good word to friends and family and will be adding to my SilverStone collection!
Anj x, New Zealand February 2013
Just thought i'd let you know that Anj loves the necklace and is a very good match for the earrings!!
No doubt I'll be in touch down the track if I need anything else! Thanks again for your great service, it really did and does make a difference - too many businesses forget how important it is to do this well, but you have it down perfect!
Kerry, New Zealand February 2013
The ring arrived safely after lunch.Luckily Jane was here to open it.
She loved it and it is not coming off!
Thanks for everything
Eileen, Kapiti Coast, February 2013
Sorry for the delay in responding. I am thrilled with the koru silver ring you made for me. It arrived in early January and my wife is very pleased to give it to me for my 65th birthday on February 3rd.
After all that measuring and guessing, the size is just about right. I'll be sure not to lose this one, especially because I'm getting the pattern from my lost Peter Minturn ring as an arm-band tattoo so if I lose your one I'll have to get that pattern on my other arm!
Thanks for the beautiful photo of your beach. However, I haven't got a good photo of the beach at our cottage/bach to share with you but you might be able to imagine white ice as far as can be seen across Lake Ontario. Right now we are "enjoying" minus 28 degrees Celcius. It makes us appreciate summer when it arrives, eventually, next May. But we are blessed with about 40 mute swans wintering over nearby and a few bald eagles to join the deer and occasional black bear wandering around the neighbourhood.
With thanks - Barry, Canada, January 2013
Hi Lori, I received my peridot earrings and my resin leaf pendant for my birthday. They were beautifully gift wrapped. I'm loving my new bling and looking forward to wearing them this weekend!
Ann, Sydney, Australia, January 2013
Thank you Lori,
Your attention to the packaging makes the pendant look even lovelier!
I'm sure Kirsty will enjoy wearing your creation.
Thanks again for making the purchase of a gift so easy and straightforward.

Thanks so much for having us at the (studio) opening yesterday. It was well organised and hard to choose between all the gorgeous jewellery displayed. I wore the pearls I bought yesterday in the evening and love them :)
Dear SilverStone Jewellery,
Thanks so much, the silver baby bracelet has arrived. I have looked around for one for my baby's 1st birthday, and this one was attractive as it's handmade and competitively priced too! I'm getting a little message engraved so she will treasure it even when it no longer fits.
Thanks for a great, safe and quality service.
OHOPE, June 2012
Well this morning after a hectic few hours at work, I came home, preceded to have a shave as I was getting scruffy lookin' and what arrives mid scrape but a lovely package with everything in, and some lovely little surprises.

My partner loved her surprise earrings gift so much, I now have one of her birthday presents sorted for September!
They are lovely and she is happy so I am happy!
Thanks for that, and have a safe weekend.
Cheers, Ants, June 2012
The earrings arrived on Friday. Thank you so much they are lovely. And yes I used some birthday $ to buy them. I have my eye on 3 more pairs of earrings and a pendant so once finances sorted I will do some more shopping at SilverStone Jewellery :)
Michele, Auckland, 2012
Dear Lori and Alex
Just wanted to Thank you soooooo much for my gorgeous heart pendant, Alex you are brilliant, I can't believe that you got my extremely "dodgy" sketch of what I wanted spot on! I thought I loved the ring you made for me but I think my heart pendant has now taken first place! I just LOVE IT!!!!
Many Thanks again to you both
Ruth, Auckland, 2012
Thank you so much for the bracelet!! It arrived yesterday afternoon and is a perfect fit. I'm really pleased with it. There are not many plain sterling silver expander bracelets for children. I was having trouble finding them when I found you on google.
I'm pleased that I bought through you and will definately be passing your name onto others.
Aimee :) New Zealand 2012
My daughter received her bangles yesterday~ she LOVED them!!!
Thank you SO much for the beautiful work and the fast response~

Many thanks to you both for the fabulous job you did in getting the bangle made and delivered for Christmas.
I love it and most especially my husband loves it.
Thank you very very much,
Pamela, January 2012
Good Morning Lori.
The parcel arrived safely, thank you. The jewellery is beautiful and I am wearing the bangle as I type.
Silver always gives me spiritual peace when I wear it and yours is exceptional.

The blue synthetic sapphire baby bracelet
The picture I first saw on your website does not begin to do justice to Alex's exquisite talent and artistry.
The bracelet is so beautiful I think an inscription is unnecessary. I would not want to put such a beautiful piece in the hands of anyone else in the possible event it could be damaged.
Sarah, USA, September 2011
SilverStone Jewellery made a wonderful job of transforming my favourite emerald and sapphire gold ring, which had broken. We wanted to add diamonds to it as well, to turn it into a new piece of jewellery. Alex drew up several designs, we chose our favourite one, and are delighted with the result. Thank you so much.
Jo Patrick, Auckland, 2011
Thanks so much Lori, I just love your customer service and have been telling all my friends about it.Just a quick email to say thank you for the bracelet; I received it today and it looks amazing. My husband is wearing the bracelet and loves it.
Carol, Auckland, September 2011
Thanks for the earrings.. I love them, I wore them to work today and got positive comments.

, 30 August 2011
Thankyou. The pendant arrived safely in today's mail. Its beautiful. Thankyou.
Thankyou again. I shall enjoy wearing my piece of New Zealand shell. Its rather significant, because my husband has recently passed away, and our trip to New Zealand last October was our last holiday together. I bought jewellry for my daughter and daughter-in-law, and settled for a shell for myself, which had a little offcut of paua shell with a stretchy elastic band as a bonus, but its not near as nice as the piece I purchased from you.
I can't believe how quick the delivery was, I think you are very efficient!

Celtic Love Knot - handmade in NZ with pride
I have always enjoyed dealing with Lori and SilverStone since we collaborated on bringing the foot pendant, earrings and spinning ring to their collection, based on an idea and discussion dealing with one of the running clubs I belong to.
Since then, I have been hooked on their silver jewellery and keep a constant eye out for any new items, especially those that contain peridot as this is the stone my partner likes.
Having attended some of their jewellery parties in Wellington, I started to find that I had most of their peridot items, well, my partner did.
After sending some images I had found for a design that I liked to Lori, she showed them to Alex and he was more than happy to manufacture the Knot.
With only having the images I sent to work off, when the finished pendant was couriered to me, I was more than pleased with the result, it was just as I imagined it would be.
Once again I thank you for a beautiful job, and very well priced.
Now I need to think about what the next item will be ….
Euan Slight & Sandra Kerr
Hi Lori, I finally had the chance to open the package when I got home last night and after an incredibly stressful day. So it was great to have a treat. And the outfit I wore to the office today was chosen specifically to go with the ring which fits perfectly.
Many many thanks for this lovely creation.
(We made this ring to order for CJ - based on a fairly loose description - needed wide tapered sides and some detail - great to know that we got it so right - thanks CJ)
Best wishes, CJ
Wellington, August 2011
Dear Lori and Alex,
Just a quick note to say thank you very much for the lovely baby bracelet. It is absolutely gorgeous and looks adorable on her chubby little arm!
I hope she will be able to keep it and hand it down to one of her children one day.
Thank you very much for the earrings. I'll definitely be wearing them until Holly is old enough!
Thanks again. Cheers,

"We made a gorgeous silver baby bracelet with gold detail and a natural peridot stone - Lee supplied us with an old ring of hers that we melted/refined and used for the gold detail."
I received my earrings yesterday, and they are gorgeous, the moonstone earrings
are for a friend of mine and will be particularly meaningful as she is about to have a "new beginning" in her life. Many thanks.
The Heart of the City team would like to extend a huge thank you for donating SilverStone Jewellery Silver Foot Pendant Necklace & Sterling Silver earrings with black shell to the BIG little city store on TradeMe. We received an overwhelming response to the auction with your item/s raising $110.
With your support, the store auctioned off over 300 items and raised over $60,000 for the Red Cross Canterbury Earthquake Relief Fund.
We were humbled by the response of the CBD business community, joining together to help those affected by the Christchurch Earthquake.
Thank You. Kind regards,

Thank you for organising the Milford Christmas Market with $19 from each stall space hire being donated to North Shore Hospice. It was good for us to be part of this market and be able to thank our supporters many of which came down to say hello.
Thank you for showing how much you care by supporting Hospice and I am sure that the Fundraising and Events teams will be in contact once they have their calendar of events finalised.
Milke Franklin, Chief Executive, North Shore Hospice
I found your site after a lot of googling! I think it was through the ShopHere website. I was looking for an affordable site that could deliver to New Zealand, and your jewellery was just the style i was looking for!
Kathy Ann, Dec 2010 Ireland
My pendant just turned up and it looks amazing! Thanks so much for everything, I really appreciate it :)
Have a lovely Christmas!
Victori, Auckland Dec 2010
Dear Lori and Alex,
Just a quick note to say an big thank you again for the super job you have done on the ring/rings.
The more I look at it the more I love it, and John also really pleased (and that ain't easy)!
Look forward to future alterations etc and will tell our friends how good you guys are.
Thanks again and happy Xmas and new year to you and your family.
Rosie, Auckland December 2010
Thank you most sincerely for your very generous donation to assist our service. It is very much appreciated.
Mike Franklin, CEO North Shore Hospice
Anyway, just to say, the birthday girl and her mom called me twice to say how absolutely stunning our present was! Thanks to you!!! I have given them your card and brochure with much said about you business and your husband's amazing designs!
Keep up with the great work, and hey, once all is over the busy Christmas season, we should catch up for coffee!
Good luck to your Christmas Market sales and take care!
Angie, Auckland, 2010
We have been impressed in the past with the quality of craftmanship of your jewellery and my wife's jewellery box will attest to that fact!
It certainly makes it easier for me to buy that "something special" for important birthdays and anniversaries.
This time your have surpassed yourselves - Hilary has received her birthday present I ordered from you - the stylised silver koru with ruby
inset and wears it daily, attracting many queries as to its origin, so some business cards may be in order! A work of art that smacks of style .
And now the big "40th Anniversary Present" had me worried, that is until once again you came to the rescue and came up with the design for a bracelet using the "koru in line" theme with garnet insets - thank you for the e-mail picture - it looks magnificent, and look forward to you sending it over - and the payment didn't break the bank !!!
We felt that such skilled craftmanship and friendly helpful service deserved some written recognition, so THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

On behalf of the Lions Club of Greenhithe, I would like to thank you very sincerely for your participation at our recent Antiques Roadshow.
It was a very successful event on a number of levels and we are planning to build on what we learnt and do it again. All who attended had a great time, which was wonderful and bodes well for future such events.
The event would not have succeeded without the generous help we received, and we do sincerely acknowledge and appreciate it.
Secretary, Greenhithe Lions Club, District 202k
Hey, It was great to meet with Alex on Friday, he was so easy to work with and practically knew what we were going to say before we did!
Thanks for being so good to us. We are really glad we found you guys!

I have today received the baby bracelet that I ordered from you online.

Emma Loves Our Sterling Silver Jewellery
I was never really one to wear much jewellery , then I fell in love with the jewellery that Lori and Alex design.
I am someone who strives to be slightly different, whether it be through my choice of hair colour (currently red and black) or through the way I express myself with my clothes and accessories, and this range of jewellery allows me the freedom to express my individuality.
Emma Thorpe, Auckland NZ, 2009
"I have enjoyed wearing Silverstone Jewellery since 2007 and I'm thrilled with my lovely custom made items and beautiful party pieces. I love the knowledge that what I am wearing is uniquely "me" as well as the great advice & speedy deliveries when I need a present for someone special... ("Feet" cufflinks designed for my runner husband... great!)
Thanks Lori & Alex - I'm just waiting to see the new designs!"
Lynne, Wellington, January 2010
SilverStone Jewellery is one of my happiest finds of the year! The jewellery is stunningly beautiful and original and so easy to fall in love with. Lori is a true professional and delightful to deal with. The jewellery party that I hosted was great fun and totally relaxed. I would highly recommend it as a great way to get together and have some fun with friends.
Donna, Auckland 2009
Got my bracelet this afternoon and it is absolutely gorgeous! Thank you thank you thank you.
I can't tell you how inspired and happy it makes me feel when I wear the pieces that I have bought from you this year. I wear them every day!
Donna, Auckland, 2009
Testimonial to your Creative Gifts and Customer Service
I couldn't help sending you a note, as I wanted to thank you for your divine jewellery collection. I sent my sister your "Carved Shell Sterling Pendant
" and she loves it, she loves nature created into jewellery and that she can wear it two ways.
Your company service was impeccable and your website is easy to follow. The pendant arrived very quickly after I ordered it, so I'm looking forward to buying more.
Ann, Sydney, Australia, December 2009
OMG Lori - the pendant just arrived and it's stunning! Much better than in the photo! Wow. Damn, I now want one!
Thank you so much!
Shelley, Christchurch, NZ, December 2009
Many many thanks, for such great, honest service!!! I can't thank you enough.
Roxanna, NZ, December 2009
thanks so much, the earrings arrived just in time and they are gorgeous!
Now I just have to convince my husband that he wants to buy some jewelry for me for Christmas so that I can get a pair :)
Melanie, NZ, November 2009
Just a quick thanks. The bracelet for my grandaughter has arrived and I am thrilled with it. It's awesome. Thank you.
Noeline, NZ, November 2009
Thank you very much for being a part of the 16th Great Greenhithe Tour 2009. The day was a wonderful success and without your help this would not have been possible. We raised over $20 000 for the kindergarten, which is a great achievement. This money will go towards repairing our leaking roof and extending our office space, as well as maintaining and upgrading learning resources for the children.
I hope the day was successful for you as well. Once again, on behalf of the Greenhithe Kindergarten I would like to thank you for being part of this fantastic event.
Wishing you a very happy Christmas, Kind Regards,
Laura Hunter, 2009, Greenhithe Kindy
I could cry, I love the ring so much - thank you both for coming into my life and letting me wear your jewellery - such beautiful and talented people xxx.
Have a perfect day - my ring is on and staying on!!!
Emma, Greenhithe, 2009
Thank you so much for the prompt service and delivery..my gold ring is perfectly crafted and looks great...I will be able to use it as a pendant or wear on most of my fingers..your and your husband are a great team! Will be using your services in future.
Breigh Fouhy, Auckland August 2009
I received Lucy's gorgeous bangle last Friday. I was going to ring and thank you, but never managed to do so. Thank you so much it is the most beautiful thing I have seen and I will look forward to ordering one for Abigail.
It is just perfect. I have been looking for something unique for over a year and finally I have found SilverStone Jewellery.
I am busy telling my friends about your baby bracelets. That is how beautiful I think it is. Hopefully you may get an order or two from my friends.
Penny Young, St Heliers, Auckland, June 2009
Thank you so much for re-sizing my gold ring. It fits perfectly and looks great. The ring has loads of sentimental value as it was my aunties ring, and just happens to be the same setting as my diamond engagement ring.
Thanks again. I will keep you mind when any of my friends have any jewellery needs.
Yvonne, Auckland, June 2009
On behalf of Hospice South Auckland I would like to thank you for your generous donation of a percentage of your stall takings to support our 'Fashion and All That Jazz' fund-raising event held at Ayrlies Garden on 22 march 2009. We had a very positive and enjoyable afternoon that raised awareness for Hospice in a way that captured people's attention and meant something to them, Your commitment to supporting Hospice is sincerely appreciated.
Hospice South Auckland, March 2009
Some time ago I picked up a piece of Black & White shell on Tauranga Beach - fancied it could make a nice ring and held onto it. Then at a SilverStone Jewellery Party asked if this was possible. The result? A fabulous unique one off ring which I wear with pride! Thank you.
Thank you for your contribution to the 2009 Hibiscus Coast Hospice Home and Garden Tour. We are delighted to tell you that despite the economic climate the Tour has raised in excess of $32,000.
The new Palliative Care Centre at Red Beach will benefit greatly from this fund raiser.
Again, thank you for your generous support.

On behalf of the Lions Club of Waikanae I would like to thank you for your contribution to our Super Garden Trail in January 2009. The event was very successful.
This event has been run annually for 12 years but this is the first time we have had a commercial concession participating. From comments from members of our club and many of our garden visitors it is agreed that your stall was a perfect fit with our event.
Furthermore many folk commented on the quality of your jewellery and on your own easy friendly manner and we look forward to seeing you down here again next year if that is possible.
Again, many thanks for your wonderful help with this important community project.

Thanks for the beautiful bracelets. They are really lovely and much better than the bracelet I bought for my first daughter originally!
Really appreciate you getting them to us by Christmas. Have an excellent Christmas and new year. If you ever do jewellery parties down here let me know. Kind regards
Angie Christchurch NZ
I have a distinct inbred (I blame my mother) love of jewellery. I met Lori (again I blame my mother) 3 years ago and fell in love with the jewellery that she and Alex design and make. I am someone who strives to be slightly different, whether it be through my choice of hair colour (currently red and black) or through the way I choose to express myself through my clothes and accessories.
SilverStone Jewellery definitely helps me to achieve this. I love the originality the jewellery offers me – from the way the jewellery hangs and moves, to the way it jingles and the way it just shines. I have never received so many compliments about my jewellery as I have since I started wearing SilverStone.
As a teacher (my other job) I love the practicality of the jewellery. It’s made to last and made to be worn. There is so much choice from the one off ‘stunners’, to the day to day ‘look lovely and feel lovely’ pieces.
Lori has taught me a lot about looking closely at myself and appreciating what looks stunning, what looks ‘ok’ and what are the no-nos!
I guess it was therefore inevitable that I started working with SilverStone Jewellery so that I could share the ‘wisdom’ with other women. I love the buzz I get when I see someone walking away from my stall or from a party with a piece that I know she will wear to death and always feel fabulous in and I get a great sense of pride when I see them wearing it months later. My business with SilverStone has also allowed me to grow and develop in many areas. And when the new collections arrive!! – the ooohs!, the ahhhhs! and Oh Mys! just keep on flowing! And there is so much to choose from that no-one ever need fear they will miss out.
Emma Thorpe, Consultant with SilverStone Jewellery 2009
Thank you for supporting our work during 2008. During these harsher economic times, it is most heart warming to know that people such as yourselves are continuing their much valued support of our work.

I want to thank you for the lovely baby bracelet you made for my daughter. It's gorgeous! And I must say it looks very beautiful on! I have received so many compliments already. I'm delighted to have done business with you and most definitely will in the future.
Thank you again. Kind regards

Ik ben dol op SilverStone sieraden. Ze zijn modern en origineel en je bent er zeker van dat er mooie stenen in verwerkt zijn!
Het enige nadeel is...er is te veel om uit te kiezen.
I am very fond off SilverStone Jewellery. It is modern and original - you can be sure that they contain beautiful stones!
The only disadvantage is...there is always too much to choose from.
If you want stunning jewellery to complement everything you wear (plus earn you lots of compliments!) then this is the jewellery for you. Each piece is stunning in it's beauty and craftsmanship. I keep going back for more..and more...and more!

On behalf of Hospice and EventSmart, we would like to thank you for for recently sponsoring an item for this Charity Event. The event was attended by just under 200 guests and we managed to raise just over $14,000 on the evening for Hospice. We appreciate that you put aside some time to assist us with this fundraiser.

Thank you so much for the beautiful sterling silver baby bracelet
- it truly is stunning and looks just gorgeous. What I really love is how "solid" and substantial it is - so much better than all the other bracelets we looked at.
Thanks for the recommendation regarding the natural Peridot also - it really is a gorgeous stone and best of all Isabella loves waving her arm around and showing everyone her 'bling'!!
Thanks once again - best wishes.

As I was surfing the internet for earrings I had in mind, I came at SilverStone Jewellery and found exactly what I was looking for: original, stunning, timeless, high quality, elegant jewelry.
Outstanding service; although I live in the other end of the world and send my order by airmail, my nz paua shell earrings
arrived safely today, beautiful packed...
I love it!
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful jewelry with the world!

I found your website by "googling" the web, searching for "gold baby bangle NZ", as I wanted a quality piece of jewellery, made in NZ. The whole purchasing experience (design, quote, and payment) through the website (and phone-call) was very efficient, pleasant, and simple. The fact that your husband made the bangle in such a short time to meet the Christening deadline was greatly appreciated.
Once the bangle is presented on Sunday, we will no doubt receive queries regarding its source, and I will have no hesitation in recommending your jewellery making service."

Thank you once again for your beautiful jewellery, I intend to have these pieces passed down to my daughter and my granddaughter. This is the first time in my life that I've had beautiful jewellery, so thanks and keep up the lovely work you do.

I have been purchasing SilverStone Jewellery since 2004, when SilverStone was launched. I started with a bracelet and earrings, then choker, then dangler, buying one or two pieces at a time to make the set.
This was my summer set of pearl shell. So when winter came along I needed another set and chose cowrie shell this time buying a dangler for the choker and earrings to match later.
I also have bought other individual gem pieces which are my mix and match favourites. When I wear my SilverStone Jewellery I feel great as I know it is quality jewellery and has style. People often comment on the uniqueness of the jewellery - which is a great compliment to SilverStone. Please feel free to contact me if you require a verbal reference.

Thank you on behalf of the Make-A-Wish Foundation for your generous support of our Inaugural Tennis Tournament. The beautiful piece of SilverStone Jewellery that you donated was eagerly sought after and encouraged our competitors to play even harder! I think that many of the ladies who attended our event will want to see more of your gorgeous pieces. As a result of the funds raised at the tournament a four year old girl will have her wish of a play house complete with kitchen and beds come true.

Thank you for the beautiful pendant I received for speaking at Her Business Networkers, Hibiscus Coast last night. I was so impressed!
Usually the speaker is lucky to get a bunch of flowers which fade in a few days, so a quality piece of jewellery was such a beautiful surprise.
I’ve been wearing it all day today with much pleasure and know it will be one of my favourite things. When people comment on it, as I’m certain they will, I’ll be sure to mention SilverStone Jewellery’s name. Warm best wishes.

I’ve hosted two SilverStone parties both in December for the past two years with the sole intention of getting myself a Christmas present from my husband! Its now becoming an annual expectation with my friends as well.
Both evenings ended up being such great social gatherings and my husband has always been amazingly generous because he’s seen how different and beautiful the jewellery actually looks like when it’s tried on.
I’ve never had a problem getting friends to come along because they’ve seen me wearing SilverStone pieces and everyone’s keen to see and try on for themselves. I’ve got a friend hosting a party this next week and I’m actually quite jealous it’s not me!
The whole concept of trying on jewellery with a bunch of friends giving honest feed back, encouragement and advice is so much fun and Lori knows all the pieces so well that she’s absolutely excellent at recommending what she thinks will suit. I’ve also had friends that have had people comment on their jewellery and they are always quick to let me know. I really look forward to hosting my next party.

I just adore SilverStone jewellery. It's great having something beautiful and original to wear. Each piece is so different and I love the fact you can buy a silver "collar" and then just add different pendants to create totally different looks, as well and buying earrings, bracelets and rings to match, if you want.
After going to a couple of Lori's parties, I decided to have my own party and it was heaps of fun getting my friends around for a few glasses of wine and some nibbles and having a look at all the jewellery. I never feel like there's any pressure to buy anything - it's just a nice girly afternoon!
Prior to the day, Lori spent some time with me organizing a suitable date and time, after which invitations were sent to me to pass onto my friends. I sent the invites well in advance to ensure all my friends had plenty of time to organise their families and therefore attend the party.
Some 20 plus ladies made it on the day and I believe this to be a direct result of plenty of warning and also my follow up the week before.
We had a wonderfully successful day with Lori presenting a huge variety of products for sale.
My friends commented on the brilliant quality and reasonable prices offered and I have no hesitation in recommending the products myself.
Lori was very pleasant to deal with and most professional, arriving well in advance to set up and also offering eftpos and credit card as a convenient way for my guests to purchase any items they wanted. I wish her all the very best in growing her business and am looking forward to adding to my own SilverStone Jewellery collection in the future.

"It was with trepidation that I decided to do a "jewellery party", I had never been particularly interested in the concept...imagining costume jewellery that everyone had already seen.
Within 5 minutes of Lori arriving I knew we were in for some serious shopping. The jewellery was stunning, unique, high quality and plentiful...there would be no fighting over pieces! The day was a great success and the 30 friends I invited turned up .
The afternoon quickly became evening by which time everyone had experimented with the jewellery - the hard part being - not finding something we liked but deciding which of the pieces we could not live without - most of the girls left clutching a wee treat for themselves. I would definitely do it again. It was a great excuse to get together and we are all still marveling over our purchases. Thanks to Lori for fitting in as one of the group."
