About us:
My name is Jack Pawlowski and I am a European-trained Master Jeweller with 47 years experience. I am the founder of The Blue Pearl Gallery in Akaroa. During my varied career, I have worked as a teacher at a jewellery high school in Poland and as a designer for the largest jewellery company in Europe—Pierre Lang—in Vienna, Austria.

I have lived in New Zealand since 1986 and pursued my jewellery passion by opening my first boutique store and workshop not long after arriving in this beautiful country with my wife and two daughters. In 2000, I met Roger Beattie, the force behind Eyris® Blue Pearls. We work closely with the team at Eyris who source and provide us with some of the world’s best Blue Pearls. We set these in our own custom-designed pieces and our extensive range is exhibited in our Blue Pearl Gallery on the Main Wharf in Akaroa.

I employ and work alongside two excellent jewellers: Joachim van Oostrum and Kazimierz Pucia. Joachim worked as a goldsmith in his native Amsterdam for many years, and Kazimierz trained as an artist in Zakopane, Poland, and apprenticed with me to learn the jewellery trade. 

Between the three of us we have almost 100 years of jewellery experience and this experience has proved its worth over the years. Some of the highlights include:
*Our team was called upon to create a unique Eyris® Blue Pearl brooch for Queen Elizabeth. The New Zealand Prime Minister, John Key, presented it to her in September, 2013. To our honour, the Queen has since worn it.

*The creation of Kiwi songstress Hayley Westenra’s dazzling one-carat white and argyle diamond platinum engagement ring in 2012.
*A commission for a small amber-and-white gold ice pick gifted to Sir Edmund Hillary in 2004 on his trip to Europe.
*The creation of an Eyris® Blue Pearl earring and pendant set for Miss World 2003 who modelled it for “Variety—The Children’s Charity” auction.
