Aotearoa Gemstones is the creation of Mirielle & Logan de Ridder. We have been carving gemstones for the past 15 years, specialising in handcrafted NZ Gemstone jewellery and art. We pride ourselves on sourcing and handcrafting ethically gathered NZ Gemstones including Pounamu, Petrified Wood, Schists, Agates and some very rare gemstones only found in NZ including Aotea and Petrified Shell. All of our work is hand worked and polished, which creates a natural finish unlike a factory finish. Our carvings are not mass produced so each piece is individual and unique. We have a large range of stock and can also work with the customer to create an individual handcrafted piece specific to the customers requirements. We also carry out repairs and rebindings.
