Where do I start? Well, perhaps with an engagement ring that we purchased a year ago from Young's Jewellers who specialise in antiques. Via Sollatia Jewellers are two doors down and they carefully and generously re-built the said ring after it disintegrated somewhat. Wonderful service...More

Visited on Tuesday 22nd May. We just went for a walk along Regent Street to check out some of the brightly coloured building, it was too early to stop for something to eat or visit one of the many bars there.

A very quirky street, however nothing hugely inspiring when compared with other similar streets in Hawkes Bay and some overseas. Quite quaint though and an interesting mixture of shops.
