About Us


Grieve Diamond Jeweller has been operating in the same block of the same street since 1934. It is now in its fourth generation of family ownership under Robert Griffiths and his son James. Although much has changed since the 1930’s, some things have remained the same – our commitment to quality product, exceptional customer service and continuing to source stunning jewellery items and precious gems.

Over 75 years of building industry relationships has allowed us to source many internationally coveted brands and products, and the ability to manufacture our own unique line of stunning rings.

We have a very busy in store jewellery workshop with a manufacturing jeweller who is always available to create bespoke items of stunning jewellery, and are also there to carry out all manner of jewellery repair and maintenance. We are regularly sourcing unique diamonds and precious stones for our customers. Robert regularly travels to international trade fairs, and has many contacts throughout the world through which to source any stone your heart desires.

We are also a proud member of the Showcase Group who are a collective of independent jewellery stores across New Zealand and Australia. Showcase brings us many highly acclaimed jewellery and watch brands and some very exciting diamond jewellery made specifically for Showcase retailers.

Our knowledgeable and experienced team are here to help you with anything from designing the two carat diamond ring of your dreams, to changing your watch battery. Nothing is too big or small for the team at Grieve Diamond Jeweller, the trusted name in quality jewellery.

Heretaunga St was hit badly by the 1931 Earthquake. This is our block of shops before the quake struck.

The interior of our current store was once home to a cake shop on one side and a milliner on the other. Much has changed now! Our current store occupies the space of both of these shops.

Post 1931 Earthquake, Heretaunga St was rebuilt into a bustling and busy shopping area which remains today. Our store once had a large fancy façade (as pictured) which has now been taken down.
