Monty & Adeline Knight - Knights the Jewellers, Kaitaia, New Zealand

Knights The Jewellers is the oldest established retail store in Northland, still owned and operated by the same family.

Knights was established in 1931 by Keith Knight and his wife Alice. Following Keith’s death in 1952, his oldest son John returned home to manage the business, eventually purchasing it.

In 1986, youngest son Monty, who owned a music and home appliance store purchased the business. Today the store is still owned by Monty and managed by his youngest daughter Adeline Knight.

Monty is currently the chairman of the Jewellers Association of New Zealand and has been inducted into The Northern Advocate Business Hall of Fame.

After serving the community for over 80 years, the Knights know how important their local customers are to their business and go the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction and trust.

As licensed second-hand jewellery dealers, Knights can advise on estate jewellery sales and purchases and, with their contacts through many years in the industry, can assist with unique designs, repairs, remakes and redesign.
