Juerg is one of very few jewellers worldwide that are able to buy gold directly from the miner in alluvial form. This offers an ethical choice of gold with an unbroken link from the miner to the wearer.
Juerg works from his studio overlooking the glacial Lake Wakatipu near Queenstown, at the foot of the Southern Alps of New Zealand. He is very committed to the conservation of this beautiful natural environment and its resources. The gold he uses is from New Zealand goldfields, responsibly mined under the supervision of the Dept. of Conservation, or recycled gold.
You will personally interact with the designer and maker at all times and you will receive jewellery of superior quality and value.
Juerg P. Muff has over 25 yrs expertise in the jewellery trade from large scale manufacturing for international clients to running retail jewellery shops. He now prefers to design & create direct from his goldsmithing studio in Queenstown:
“I like a “small is beautiful” approach that allows me to give each customer and jewellery piece the due attention required. I am selective about the jewellery projects I do, in order to provide a dedicated one-on-one support to my clients. There’s no more need for a high-street store or executive sales staff. My jewellery pieces speak for themselves, and speak about the wearer. This approach is much more satisfying for everyone involved and at the same time allows me to provide superior quality products at great value. Many of my customers have become personal friends.”
