I got my beautiful pounamu from here back in February and I have yet to take it off. Jo was an excellent saleswoman, friendly and super informative but not pushy, and allowed me to browse and deliberate until I found the piece that finally drew me in: this simple, sturdy circle with coloring that reminded me of a braided river. Jo even put it around my neck for me. They have pendants and other pieces for every kind of budget, and Garth's craftsmanship is truly out of this world! I will definitely be back someday!
Found Garth Wilson Jade in a local Greymouth brochure. Always like to check out local shops/family run shops. What a find! Loved all the pieces, hand made local Jade pendants and other larger pieces. I would have bought more than I did if not for limits on the travel budget. :-) Jo explained everything in great detail down to the local harvesting of the raw stones. There is something priced for any budget. A must visit!
