Welcome to Glen James Jewellers—the place in Nelson for a gorgeous piece that’s uniquely yours. Unlike typical jewellery stores, you won’t find generic designs in our shop. We complement our unmatched expertise in tailoring rings, key chains and other items using modern technology to masterfully craft distinctive pieces personally for you.


Many items of jewellery symbolise something eternal, but it doesn’t mean they are not prone to damage from everyday wear either from continous use or occassional dress wear. Unlike the love or friendship it stands for, the physical characteristics of your jewellery can break. And when that happens, there’s only one place to go.

Glen James Jewellers is adept at jewellery repairs. Whatever the piece or the problem, our team and I will put a permanent fix to it. With our extensive background in all aspects of jewellery services, there’s no single broken piece we couldn't repair. Over 20 years experience in the business has gained us a wealth of experience and established our reputation as the industry’s crème de la crème.

The fact that a long list of jewellers, including esteemed retailers, trust us to fix or resize their client’s personal piece is a testament to what our shop brings to the table. There isn’t a single jeweller in the city who hasn’t sought our help on more than one occasion.

Our rich tradition of superior jewellery repairs promises you only superb service. We mend broken jewellery and restore the beauty taken away by the damage. Every piece we fix brings back its unmistakable splendour and radiates its magnificence to the wearer.

Visit our shop today and let’s repair your jewellery to perfection.

New Zealand Olympic Gold Medalist

We laughed when we first saw the pendants of our own faces. Never before have we been immortalised in metal! Very impressive and excellent detail. These pendants make fantastic presents for mums, dads and grandparents, they are better than any locket could ever be. Seriously, you’ll make them cry!

The Edge Morning Madhouse

Glen has been amazing to deal with, always happy, full of interesting stories and never seems to stress.

His designs are different, innovative and shows his experience within the industry and really lets his creativity shine through.

He showed me a 3D Prototype before he started to make the ring so I knew exactly what I was getting.

Later when we were in Nelson just for few hours he showed us what will be our wedding bands right in front of us on his 3D software.

Chang Hung, The Edge Radio

We have been so fortunate to choose Glen James Jewellers to design and craft beautiful and unique pieces for us. Often admired and exceptional quality, it is always an exciting and enjoyable process with the results always exceeding expectations.

Nathan & Jackie Cohen
New Zealand Olympic Gold Medalist

We were lucky enough to win our wedding on the Edge radio station. From which, we had sponsors from around the country, willing to make our day special. Working with Glen meant exactly that. He produced 2 beautiful rings, something that never leaves our fingers. Glen was great to work with, he has a good sense of humour, that makes creating your perfect ring fun! If you're after quality jewelry with that personal touch, Glen is your man!.
