SUMMER COLLECTIONS 2019 /20

What to expect?  Of course a range of spectacular gems set in silver or silver-gold combinations. Like the pendant on the right which is made of a exquisite lemon quartz and London blue topaz combination.

We also dived into a whole lot of sapphires from Madagascar and a few ranges emerged from that. Beautiful stacking rings, delicate earrings, singular pendants, in different metals such as pure silver, silver-gold combination or 14ct yellow gold only. Most of these pieces are available in our Franschhoek boutique.

Back to our roots, is a collection that combines African blackwood with different metals, this year we included Ghanese symbolism, translated to jewellery design.

Over many years our wonderful gemstone bead collection has grown and it was about time again to create some beautiful pieces. Enjoy necklaces and bracelets made from sapphires, tourmaline, topaz, citine…  in playful colour combinations.

MOKUME GANE | spring collection 19

the Cape was blessed with good winter rains and we are ready to welcome spring and summer full of blooming trees, sunshine and warmth. 

Mokume Gane is a specialised ‘smithing’ technique that stems from Japan and means WOOD GRAIN – all inspired by the trees around us that are starting to blossom, we created a small collection of mokume gane jewellery.

The pieces are made from various metals but mostly created from combinations of silver and copper, enhanced with beautiful gems such as citrine, diamond or topaz. We hope that you will enjoy this small, precious collection as much as we do…

The jewellery collection is the result of a 17 year design collaboration between Andreas Betzold & Patrizia Litty. “It reflects our passion for gemstones and a love for the unique and unusual. Our jewellery is of the highest of standards both hand wrought and cast. We work with rare and classic gemstones that we source from Southern Africa as well as worldwide.”

“We enjoy combining different metals such as 24ct gold or 18ct rose gold with sterling silver. We extended our “collage theme” to include different materials such as African blackwood, exotic leather, silk and even peacock feathers.

The collection comprises unique or limited edition pieces only, often featuring one of a kind gemstones.”
