Established 2009 in Nelson NZ, Louise Douglas Jewellery is dedicated to crafting precious objects that celebrate love, nature, and connection — jewellery that you’ll live in and love always.

Designer Louise Douglas brings a love of art, nature and fashion to her keepsake pieces which are all handcrafted in the vibrant and beautiful city of Nelson, New Zealand.   “I have always been fascinated with jewellery; my mum and grandmother both loved jewellery and I was always sifting through their treasures boxes when I was little”.

Louise started making jewellery at the age of 18, selling to design stores in New Zealand. She then went on to design collections in the United States for a private label and runway at large fashion jewellery houses in New York City. Her work has been sold to high-end department stores and exclusive boutiques throughout Japan, the US and NZ.

“Great design is important to us. With an organic aesthetic borne from nature’s surroundings, our creations express memories of childhoods spent exploring the native forest and rugged seaside. Reflecting the natural beauty of New Zealand, our keepsake pieces make perfect gifts or travel mementos” says Louise.

Each intricate design is originally carved from wax. These delicate models are then cast into silver and bronze, and each is finished by hand. The sterling silver is oxidized for an antique finish, while the bronze is dipped in 22k satin gold. Chains, clasps, and ear-wires are sterling silver or 14k rolled gold. Many items are also embellished with an array of high-quality freshwater pearls or semiprecious stones. Louise Douglas Jewellery takes pride in the high quality and hand finishing of all their pieces.

“I am inspired by the intricacies of the natural world, along with art and fashion. I also draw influence from Victorian and Art Nouveau jewellery, with a modern twist. I like to encourage the viewer to appreciate nature’s beauty and imperfections when they experience my work”.

The LDJ team recently developed a beautiful range of natural essential oils to be used in their unique Riverstone sterling silver diffuser necklaces.  Here are 3 more ways you can use our oils in your daily routine:

  • Defuse in your at home mister or oil burner
  • Add 4-5 drops to your relaxing bath or infuse in the shower
  • For an instant pick up, drip a few drops in your hand, warm between your palms then inhale

Inspired by the four classical elements, their oil blends help you feel a sense of harmony, balance, and wellbeing. Enjoy the healing properties of nature’s pure essence.

The LDJ range is simply stunning and sophisticated for any occasion and can be purchased across New Zealand or online.  Also available is the gift of choice (gift certificate) so your lucky recipient can select the piece of jewellery they want the most.

Louise Douglas Jewellery look forward to welcoming you to a boutique experience.
