    It's not just an emotional thing, it makes so much sense to support our economy by buying NZ made products. It makes me sad however, we I see NZ branded merchandise that is made in China etc., and there seems to be more and more of it.

    "The Buy New Zealand campaign began in 1988. Its emphasis has shifted over the years, but the basic aim of encouraging consumers and organisations to buy New Zealand goods and services wherever possible has not changed.

    When you buy a New Zealand produced product or service, you’re helping to create jobs, promote growth. As every cricketer knows, a run saved equals a run scored – so you’re giving our country a double whammy benefit when you buy New Zealand rather than from another country. We can be proud of the quality of our products."

    For lots and lots of NZ made products you can buy on line, take a look at the 'getnzmae' website:

    ... and look out for products bearing the "Buy NZ logo":

    I'm not really much of a full on jewelry person I like earrings, some rings and watches...but have to admit that some of those items are really nice and are great in showcasing NZ their are some I wouldn't wear but would be great as gifts I suppose....
    • Anna says
      yer great gifts for overseas people who want a bit of kiwiana... but you dont wanna get the usual tacky stuff!!
    • Wice says
      I'd rather 'made in NZ" that wearing NZ adverting - at least while I'm living here. However, I really love NZ and think some of these items might make great gifts for friends overseas. I can't help suspecting this jewelry may have been produced to meet the tourist market while the RWC is on, rather than for the local market.

      • Dee-Dee says

            I love #7 because I love paua. I know it's really common & cheap but it's so sparkly & colourful!
            That bracelet in #1 is pretty cool too.
            Yep, Wice, I'd rather "made in NZ" than have something with NZ flag on

            I agree ladies that buying New Zealand made makes more sense to help the economy but the sad fact is that other countries due to their lax labour laws make it cheaper to produce things in their countries than it is to make in New Zealand but if it's all about national pride and showing the rest of the world that we can support our own economy by first buying our own produced goods then I'm all for it.
