Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Would a lovely shop! lots of interesting jewellery and a very nice helpful assistant. Came to walk the queen charlotte and went home with new earings ..... As the name says, it is a gem of a place and not like all your other touristy , repetitive shops. good work.

This little store is full of amazing jewellery and gifts and the prices are very realistic. The staff member was very pleasant and you didn't feel pressured into buying anything. the day we went they had a great special on silver rings. I would recommend this shop to anyone looking at wanting something a little bit unique.

What a beautiful place. I loved every single piece of jewellery. My only complaint IT WAS SO HARD TO CHOOSE. Thank you so much for taking the time to show me your stunning pieces. This is definitely the highlight to our weekend away. Thank you so much

I would highly recommend the staff at Seaside gems - what nice people and so helpful. Here is my story: I was recently in Picton and lost my mobile phone on the waterfront. Unfortunately I only discovered this loss as I was getting on the ferry to Wellington, so I was pretty down thinking I had lost all my contacts and more importantly my photos of the previous few weeks in New Zealand. So I was delighted to get a call from Rhonda at Seaside Gems telling me that someone had found my phone outside her shop and brought it in. Rhonda then arranged for it to be sent to me by courier in Wellington and even refused my offer to pay for the postage. What a star and so friendly and helpful! So if you are looking to find a great welcome from fantastic people, I highly recommend the staff at Seaside Gems

We recently stopped in Picton during a NZ cruise and were surprised to find this lovely shop with quality NZ made items at very reasonable prices. The staff were extremely helpful and both my husband and I were delighted with the range of beautiful glassware and jewellery. The owner even went above and beyond to assist my husband to secretly purchase some earrings to surprise me with. Customer service like that is hard to find these days and if we go to Picton again, we will shop there again for sure.

We are regulars at this lovely store and I have bought several pieces from them for my wife. We had some difficulty with a recent purchase, and were immediately offered a replacment. As we loved the piece, the store undertook to rework part of the item at no cost.

The staff are great, the service is prompt and friendly, and the jewellery is a delight.

Two of us purchased rather expensive items at Seaside. As we were hesitating because of the price, the salesperson launched into a lengthy explanation that a 15% cash refund of the GST would be given to us at the airport. The sales person took great pains to inform us of the details of the GST refund. She explained that items were eligible for a refund if the purchase was over $250 and, further, that all we needed to do was to present the receipt at the GST counter at the airport. No further paperwork was necessary. There was no such counter at the airport. Airport personnel informed us that New Zealand has no program to refund the GST. We felt deceived. In contacting Seaside Gems they did not acknowledge that such a conversation had ever taken place. My advice to future customers: Caveat Emptor!!!

After giving this man a hefty dicount!!! more than the 15% gst. We told him that we could not barter as the price we gave him was such a good price. He was a very difficult person and we told him to check at the airport. Check all our other reviews.(SAY NO MORE)

I visited this lovely store in pretty Picton on a recent visit to New Zealand, then I went online to find them again when I returned to Australia. I wanted to purchase a delightful pair of earrings I had seen there and the owners couldn't have been more helpful in photographing and then sending them to me. Such wonderful service and such helpful, efficient and lovely people. Thank you.

I was looking for a unique piece of jewellery for a work colleagues retirement and I found the most stunning blue pearl here in a fantastic setting. It was a lovely experience shopping here. The service is outstanding and the jewellery is unique and beautiful. They make you feel like anything is possible. I will definitely shop here again. I would recommend it as the perfect shop for husbands to visit before birthdays and Christmas!
