About Us

Passionata opened its doors on 17th August 2006 and has become a favourite shop for many of our loyal and wonderful customers.


Passionata stocks stylish jewellery and accessories, and beautiful clothes. Assisting our customers with putting the perfect emsemble together for their special occasion is what we do well. Our customers can choose from our vast array of jewellery and accessories, enabling them “to be remembered” at their weddings, special birthdays, anniversaries etc. We are also a popular haunt for brides searching for that special piece of jewellery or accessory for their special day.


We just love vintage and retro jewellery, wraps, dresses, china, linen, silver, glassware. We have a huge jewellery collection – not all of it is on show.


The shop smells lovely with the gorgeous MOR range, Pre de Provence and Le Blanc French ranges, NZ made Papyrus honeysuckle soaps, linen mists and other beautiful products.


We have vintage and vintage-style glassware and silver for your home. Wrought iron furniture, jewellery stands, coat racks, fantasy decorations for Christmas or simply to enhance your home.

The Passionata Experience

We encourage our customers to try on jewellery, check out the handbags, try on the clothes, and to test our gorgeous beauty products.

At Passionata we strive to make your visit the most rewarding experience in your day. Many of our customers say “this shop is every woman’s dream”!
