Gold Sponsor - Orsini Fine Jewellery
Sarah Hutchings, Orsini Director, loves being able to bring quality jewellery to clients in New Zealand. The Italian language bestows so much meaning to a word. 'Orsini' is not only an Italian name, it is a word that implies: family, quality, style and lasting beauty. To Sarah, the word was also an appropriate designation for a fine jewellery collection she lovingly hand sources from Italy. Sarah and her team of goldsmiths are also passionate about designing & making custom-made jewellery, specialising in engagement rings. These engagement rings are designed using CAD technology and made in her NZ workshop using leading NZ goldsmiths.
