Halfdan Hansen from Jens Hansen jewellers says it is a proud moment for his team, knowing that the New Zealand Prime Minister will be wearing their Nelson Ring.
Earlier today [Saturday, 19 October] Prime Minister, the Right Honourable Jacinda Ardern was gifted the iconic Jens Hansen Nelson Ring at the official opening of Nelson Airport’s new terminal.
Choosing the right setting requires thinking about how the ring will suit the wearer’s lifestyle, as well as the look they like. For example, active outdoor lovers should consider a less elaborate ring with a secure or lower profile setting that won’t catch.

David Johnson popped the question to Lili Wenzel on the top of the tallest mountain in Madagascar, with a ring he carved himself from a coconut shell –very romantic, but they knew they needed wedding rings that would reflect their love of nature and active lifestyle.

Sapphire is the birthstone for September and the traditional gifting gem for 5th and 45th anniversaries. It is known as one of the Big 3 coloured stones along with Ruby and Emerald.
Traditionally, sapphire symbolises nobility, truth, sincerity, and faithfulness. In ancient Greece and Rome, kings and queens were convinced that blue sapphires protected their owners from envy and harm.
