So, how’s your Christmas shopping going? Almost finished or not yet started?? Either way I’ve got some great news for you today….
I’m a HUGE fan of jewellery and it almost always appears top of my Birthday and Christmas lists. Give me something shiny and beautiful to wear round my neck, wrist or in my ears and I’m a happy girl and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one. Us girls LOVE jewellery (Guys if you’re ever stuck for gift ideas I can almost guarantee that you can’t go wrong with something in a small box!)
With my jewellery obsession in mind I thought I would share with you some of the pretties I recently discovered from South African Jewellery Designer Rolf Werndle.
Rolf comes from a long line of jewellers and made his first very simple bird ‘pendants’ at age 6 out of paper clips! He is the man behind the beautiful handmade jewellery designed under the name Duke & Dutch which caters to both men and women. All the solid silver designer jewellery is made in South Africa and all pieces incorporate genuine gemstones and are made to last a lifetime. Many of the pieces are inspired by South African flaura & flora and include owls, birds, flowers and splashes of colourful enamel (which can be personalised in the colour of your choice).
The modern and wearable Duke & Dutch jewellery can be divided into 3 ranges:
Here are a few Duke & Dutch designs from the women’s range you might like to add to your Christmas list! (Or maybe spoil someone with!)
And if you’re in the market for a great gift for the guy in your life then the men’s range of jewellery including cuff links, rings and pendants might appeal to you….. (I know men can be notoriously difficult to buy for!)
I’m super excited to be giving away a pair of Duke & Dutch earrings in sterling silver worth R250! You can choose which pair you would like to win… Either the Scroll & Heart Earrings or the Fern-Patterned Earrings pictured below.
