We are happy to admit our magpie tendencies, and that we’re easily tempted by sparkle and shining.

We’ve been able to reconnect with old favorites (like Karen Walker and Lisa Hoskin) and learn more about the evolution of iconic New Zealand brands like Michael Hill Jewellery.

The Australian designs of Kallis & Medley, and the Danish influences of Pilgrim have also caught our attention.
