Our story

Founded in 1993 by husband and wife Steve and Jan Crout, Jubilee Jewellers are one of Wellington’s most experienced jewellers. With Jan now happily retired, Jubilee Jewellers is now in the safe hands of their youngest sons, Michael and Paul.

One day Steve would love to semi-retire, but for now, he is thrilled to be working alongside two of his sons to continue to deliver quality jewellery and exceptional customer service to Kiwis

Paul, Master Jeweller

Meet Paul, a talented jeweller with over 10 years of experience in the industry. Known for his unique artistic designs, Paul has become a go-to for customers looking for one-of-a-kind jewellery pieces that are both beautiful and meaningful.

When he's not busy creating stunning pieces of jewellery, Paul loves to play the bass guitar. He's been playing since he was a teenager and finds that music is a great way to unwind and express himself creatively. Whether he's playing classic rock or composing his own songs, Paul loves the way music can bring people together and touch their hearts.

Michael, Sales Director

Meet Michael, a seasoned Sales Manager with over 15 years of experience in the Jewellery industry across Australia and New Zealand. Like many kiwi's living overseas during the COVID-19 pandemic, Michael made the decision to return home to Wellington and since then he has been instrumental in driving the growth of Jubilee Jewellers since Jan's retirement in 2021.

On weekends, you can find him cheering for the Hurricanes, mastering the art of the harmonica, and crushing it in his video game battles.

Michael is also a DIY enthusiast who is currently renovating his modest classic kiwi home with his lovely wife, Jules.

When he's not busy crafting stunning jewellery pieces, Steve loves to cheer for the All Blacks, and boy, does he know how to celebrate their wins!

But that's not all - he's also got a green thumb and can be found tinkering in his garden on his days off.
