We are definitely seeing a lot more clients using Amex, they get such great rewards with Amex and combined with a higher priced purchase like an engagement ring it’s a no brainer for a lot of our clients.
I love how hands on we are with every aspect of our company. We not only know our customers really well and get the opportunity to meet them on a daily basis, we know the ins and outs of our products, our suppliers, and more. New Zealand’s economy is built on small businesses and it’s amazing to be a part of that.

If there is a local café, restaurant or shop that you love, make an effort to do more of your spending there. Appreciate the time and skill that goes into small businesses and NZ handmade products and support the artisan. Oh, and make an effort to Shop Small and buy all Christmas gifts from a small local business.
