The Pressure of finding that perfect engagement ring design can be intense, particularly when the possibilities seem endless and the world of diamonds and precious metals a little impenetrable. The good news is that I can relieve you of the pressure.
I have assisted a huge number of customers in realising their ideal engagement ring design. I have a process that starts with a discussion with you, moves onto producing some water colour drawings and often a wax model or two, then continues with the selection of precious gems of your choice with easily understood secrets of achieving value for money by buying smartly. In the case of diamonds I will show you why simply focusing on the 4Cs is flawed and misinformed.
If necessary, some decisions can be left on the table for future consideration and discussion with your partner. Feel free to contact me and I can explain in more detail, but rest assured the journey from original concepts to the creation of your dream piece at Greg Holland Jewellery is always a fantastic win-win scenario for both you and your partner.
Ultimately and most importantly this process results in a delighted partner and an incredibly memorable proposal and engagement ring purchasing experience.

Tracy and I wanted to take the time to let you know how impressed and thrilled we are with the engagement ring and wedding bands we commissioned through you recently. the design over a number of consultations I came to feel confident that you would be able to accurately portray my vision for Tracy’s engagement ring. In particular your ability to interpret my various design ideas into the final piece was a testament to your skills.Needless to say, Tracy was blown away with the ring - it was a total surprise to her, and I must say somewhat of a relief to me that she was so delighted with it given the stress of a proposal! A common misconception is that one-off custom jewellery is expensive - however we believe that the pieces you’ve crafted represent excellent value for money.We would have no hesitation in recommending this approach to anyone who was looking at purchasing a piece of jewellery. It goes without saying that we will be back in the future for you to create other hand crafted pieces. In fact Tracy has already let me know of some that she has in mind! We feel that your guidance, personal touch, and commitment to producing truly unique and quality jewellery sets you apart from others in the industry. We have already recommended you to family and friends and will continue to do so in the future.
After hours of trailing through jewellery shops examining engagement rings, the only thing we knew was that we wanted something unique. Greg's patience with allowed us to work alongside him and design what we felt represented 'us' as a couple. To have people comment on your engagement ring is one thing. But to have people of all ages obviously notice your engagement ring, pass comment and then ask to take a closer look is something entirely different. It is something I have become accustomed to. The comments have been full of praise, and reference the elements Greg worked so hard to capture for us. We have been repeat customers with Greg, always met with warmness and a sense of professionalism. We adore the jewellery Greg has created for us and we recommend his services.
Being based in Australia it was a daunting prospect having an engagement ring commissioned in New Zealand. This was until I spoke with Greg. His enthusiasm for what he does and his approachability put my mind at rest. From this point the process became enjoyable. Greg had an uncanny ability to turn my vague ideas into a design that captured what I had been visualizing. When I saw the final product I was blown away. The ring is absolutely stunning and my fiancé, Anna, adores it. We have both been highly recommending Greg to family and friends.
A big thank you for my gorgeous ring. In the two days I have been wearing it I am amazed friends have actually noticed the difference without me saying a word. It must be because it looks "so" sparkly & different from when I had the sapphire. The diamond really sets it off now and I am thrilled.
Thanks once again Greg.

We were immensely impressed with Greg and his service. After initially having trouble finding a jeweller who works with ethical metals, we were relieved to find in Greg a high quality jeweller who understood the philosophy behind the kind of engagement ring we wanted as much as the style we were after. Throughout the process of designing the ring and deciding which type of stone to use, Greg displayed endless patience and a willingness to let us take the time we needed. Moreover, although we were initially concerned about working with a jeweller who was based in another city from us, Greg’s professionalism and guidance allayed our fears. Our feeling that Greg was the right choice was ultimately confirmed once the ring was made. We are totally satisfied with what he created.
The ring you created is perfect. We appreciated the way you worked with us, suggesting design ideas and adding details that suited our style.
We love that it is hand made in New Zealand, with New Zealand sourced gold, and by somebody with artistic integrity. We only happened to walk past your workshop while ring hunting and we feel very lucky to have found you.
We look forward to designing our wedding bands with you soon.
When it came to getting my wife an eternity ring to symbolize our two daughters, it was important to me that it was special. It was also important to me that the ring be ethical and as environmentally friendly as possible. This proved to be a difficult task. It seemed every jeweller I went into or contacted didn’t stock rings to those specifications. Then I found Greg Holland Jewellery through an internet search. Upon emailing him I received a prompt response and was quickly allayed of any fears about him being in Auckland and me in Wellington. The process of communicating through email was very satisfactory as Greg guided me through the process of design and creation. I must say that for the little guidance I gave him to the design, he envisaged the perfect ring and crafted it with absolute quality. My wife loves the ring. It came as a complete surprise and I often see her admiring it. In her words, it feels perfect
Well can I say again that the ring you made me is absoulutely stunning.
I got the ring just a few hours before going on a 30 hour flight to London and I spent heaps of the time on that flight gazing admiringly at myring - it really is wonderful and I have had so many really nice comments about it so thank you.
