About
Here at Shades Of Jade we are proud to showcase Pounamu that is 100% genuine West Coast Jade. Located in the center of Mawhera/Greymouth, established in 2000 we stock a beautiful range of locally sourced Pounamu that has been expertly carved into pendants, earrings, rings or unique sculptures. Our specialty is the unique Flower Jade a rich green Pounamu with yellow or white accentuated markings that is found 15kms from Greymouth. We love helping you find that extra special piece of Pounamu.

    My Hands Down Favourite Store in Greymouth
    Shades of Jade is my hands down favourite shop in Greymouth. Catherine and Warren are a treat in themselves let alone the beautiful pounamu they have on display. I could seriously buy the whole shop - a different piece for every day of the year but that would be greedy. They are a wealth of knowledge on the Maori significance of Pounamu, they know where every piece has come from and they only use local carvers. I joked about but am very fortunate to have been gifted some beautiful pieces over the years and recommended to other family members also. Can't recommend Shades of Jade or Catherine and Warren highly enough if you are looking for a true and special piece of NZ.

    Best place ever
    You could not come to a better place to buy your pounamu treasure. You will get the best help ever. The owners are just wonderful and will give you all the background information you need to make sure you find what it is you need. Or that the right stone finds you. W &K

    Make sure that you check this little business out. Free entry and a pleasure to have a chat with the operator,
    Do yourself a favour and visit this little shop. It’s like a tour of amazing creations carved out of New Zealand Jade. The shop operator was so warm and welcoming and gave me a great understanding of the different colours and traditional names of the stone. The creations on sale are amazing and well worth a look. Congratulations to all involved in this business. You are one of the best.

Once again these lovely people, Catherine and Warren, have exceeded my expectations. I called them two days ago, explaining that I had lost the last pendantI bought from them when I tragically lost my lovely daughter that I bought it for.
I described the pendant and in less than 24 hours Warren had crafted it to my exact description and Catherine had packed and sent it. It arrived this afternoon and I'm thrilled with it. For me, this pendant is so special because it will always remind me of my daughter. Thank you so much.
Everything about this and my previos experience shines with excellence and personal care.
lovely store, beautiful pounamu and Catherine's knowledge adds immense interest to any piece you choose. I highly recommend Shades of Jade...as the highlight of your visit to Greymouth NZ

I have always loved jade so was very keen to visit this shop which only sells locally found and lically fashioned jade. The jade on display had colours ranging from pinks and reds, through the greens to black. The woman who helped us was a wealth of information about the Greymouth area and its myths and legends as well as the first nations stories around jade and jade design.

Found this place walking around town and so glad we did. The Jade for sale was incredibly beautiful and realistically priced. Husband finally found a piece of Jade he liked after many years searching. There is something for everyone in here and a great place for Christmas shopping.
Can't wait to check out the webpage and get sorted.
Several in our group of 8 made a purchase.

I had been looking for a set of Pounamu earrings for my wife. Finding something was a little challenging from Australia, but Cathrine helped me so much with the process. From what had in mind to what will suit her. I couldn’t decide 😂
I ended up purchasing two sets and both are amazing.
The whole process was stream line and the earrings are beautiful.
Thanks you

I went into Shades of Jade to send jewellery home for my family, and honestly, I couldn’t rate them high enough! Such beautiful items and the team were really helpful and kind. Such a beautiful shop! I sent the items home to the UK and my family love them to pieces!

Outstanding customer service. Katherine knows every piece of jewelry in the shop. She can tell you who carved it and where it came from. Well worth the experience. Absolutely brilliant beautiful place.

It was a pleasure to meet Warren and Catherine. They were so knowledgeable and friendly. Warren spent a long time to help us to choose the right pieces.
We left the shop happy with 3 lovely pieces.

We were so glad that we found this shop by chance as it was off the main street.

It's a nice shop to visit if you are in Greymouth.
