Ngai Tahu Pounamu (Greenstone) 

Ngai Tahu, the legal owners of Pounamu have developed a system using a unique code to certify products made from genuine New Zealand greenstone. Beadz Unlimited is a licensed re seller of Ngai Tahu Pounamu. This system guarantees that the stone has been extracted by legitimate means and has been treated using the appropriate cultural values. read more >

Repairs and Rethreads 

Broken clasps, missing hooks, frayed threads... Sick of having a pile of unwearable jewellery lying around? Bring it in to Beadz and we will repair it, rethread it, re-knot it and restore it to wearable condition. For a fraction of the cost of replacing your jewellery we can revitalise your accessories and ensure your favourite pieces can be worn once more. Our extensive range of beads and findings means we can often replace missing components too. We can switch nickel based hooks and clasps for sterling silver and help you re-design some of your old pieces. We can also create beautiful jewellery from our wonderful range of beads and findings in store for you.

Please note:

Our repairs are not completed on the spot but on a first-come, first-served basis within a period of 4-6 weeks depending on demand. This is because we pride ourselves on a quality repair and like to dedicate time to restoring your beautiful jewellery.
Should you require your repair more urgently, we may be able to complete it within a week for an additional fee, depending on availability. 

You will be given a quote for the work cost of your jewellery before we proceed with repairing it, unless you instruct us otherwise. This quote does not include the cost of materials or courier but we may be able to estimate the cost of materials for you.
