Royal: Contemporary New Zealand Jewellery

Royal Jewellery Studio showcases the best of contemporary New Zealand jewellery. All our stock is designed and hand-crafted by local jewellers, whose diverse practices share a commitment to individuality, wearability, and quality workmanship.



Royal Jewellery Studio was established by jeweller Ben Flynn in 1998, with a mission to provide a exhibition space for contemporary New Zealand jewellery in Tāmaki-Makaurau Auckland City. The gallery and store is located in Kingsland, in the iconic Theatre Royal building, built in 1915. 




Renamed the Pacific Theatre in the 1970s, Kingsland's theatre closed in 1978, and and the building was not in commercial use again until 1995. It is from the Theatre Royal that Royal Jewellery Studio takes its name, as well as its fabulous original floor tiles. 


Royal Jewellery Studio is currently managed by Elicia Hunt, with assistance from Amelia Rothwell. Owner Ben Flynn makes jewellery full-time from his workshop in the Bay of Islands, and is in store Saturdays by appointment.
