About Canterbury Jewellers

NZ jewellery at it's best

Christchurch central business still going strong, established in 1982

Started by Brent Baylis back in 1982, his son Jason Baylis has been working by his side ever since he could hold a hammer and a file at the bench. Having a great master jeweller as a mentor, Jason has been the manager and workshop manager ensuring only proper quality work leaves the workshop. 

Members of the JWNZ (Jewellery & Watchmakers of New Zealand), Canterbury Jewellers appear regularly in Metropole Magazine and featured in their special Wedding issue last year.

The 2011 earthquake hit the central city hard, but Canterbury Jewellers have regrouped and have recovered thanks to the support from our local community and loyal customers.
