Jewellery Design Inspirations

Jewellery Inspiratiions

At Peter Shakes we draw our inspiration from the world around us including the interlacing knotwork from the treasured book of Kells, movie star iconic style, and the many wonders of nature.

The factory is situated in the heart of creative Wellington, New Zealand, home town of Peter Jackson and the Hobbit crew. The 3rd floor Garrett Street building was purpose built for manufacturing with its enviable outdoor roof deck and bank of casement windows that allows light to flood the jewellers' benches - and is as inspiring as the pieces fabricated within.


We met with Peter after I proposed - this ensured that the engagement ring would suit her tastes and while we were at it we would organise the wedding rings. We both found Peter polite, down-to-earth, and without any 'sales pressure'. He was open and easy to talk to and pleased to show us his selection of rings.

We decided we liked a few elements of different rings and with Peter's helpful advice about materials and design we created a set of rings that included these features. My fiancee loves her ring and I can't wait till I get to wear its match.
