20th Anniversary Group Show
This October marks 20 years since Ben Flynn opened the doors to Royal Jewellery Studio, a place where New Zealand contemporary jewellers could showcase and sell their work.It was through reflection over this time that we started to consider the rich history of the iconic building that houses Royal Jewellery Studio. 486 New North Road was once a very popular picture theatre with a large pacific following, so much so that during the 1980's the name was changed to the 'Pacific Cinema'.
Fascinated by our beautiful building's history, we have taken this aspect to form the theme of this 20th anniversary exhibition 'Pacific Royal'.This exhibition will showcase work from our jewellers that has been inspired by the pacific royal theme.
