What's New!


In our tiny little shop in Rosebank, every day brings something new and exciting to look at and to think about!

Spring has come to Johannesburg, and summer is on its way.  With sunny days and warm evenings to look forward to, what could be better than a pair of dazzly dangly earrings to set the mood for fun.

DARE TO DAZZLE, featured on Instagram, is a small, brand new collection of earrings.  Each pair has been designed and made by one of our favourite South African artist-jewellers. 

The instant facelift – pop them on and you are ready for anything!

Why Pearls?

Buying pearls, the ins and outs

Pearls are fascinating – and one of Nature’s most enchanting gifts.

Learning more about them, in theory, is relatively easy. But, as with everything, really knowing enough to make informed choices requires hands-on experience – and lots of time spent looking, touching and feeling.

There are many types of Pearls

Pearls, the various types

Pearls are created by oysters, mussels and clams. Natural pearls form when an irritant works its way into the shell. The creature secretes a fluid as a protection against this irritant. This 'nacre' is deposited in many layers, and the pearl is formed.

Originally they were completely natural. The pearl divers of the past were the stuff of legends – half-naked mermaid-like ladies who collected the oysters and their precious contents from the seabed. Or not so romantic men in canvas diving suits!
