As part of their Centenary Year celebrations, Kirstenbosch Gardens, with the help of South African award winning jewellers, have created the Kirstenbosch Crown Jewels. The jewellery collection is inspired by the biodiversity found in Kirstenbosch; the flora and fauna, which have made the gardens famous.
The Crown Jewels have been created, by seven of South Africa’s leading awarding winning jewellers, which include Uwe Koetter; Platandia; Prins and Prins; Peter Gilder; Cari Mari; Vijay Shah and Kirti Jewellers. This is a one of a kind collection!
I was invited to attend the unveiling of these gorgeous creations, which you can see below:
…this is so beautiful, don’t you agree!
There is even something for the guys!
Last but not least the most stunning Tiara, if you are getting married then this could be just the piece for you!
The Crown Jewels are currently on show at the Cape Grace Hotel, at the V&A Waterfront. The jewels will go on auction on the 17th June 2014 at the Old Mutual Conference Centre, Kirstenbosch. Before the bidding begins, guests will be treated to canapes and cocktails, followed by a short speech and then the auction will begin. Funds raised at the auction will be going towards educational projects that SANBI and BotSoc present, the collection is ‘one of a kind’ and bound to be envied and coveted by those who miss out.
Please contact the auctioneers if you are an interested buyer wishing to attend this auction. To attend this auction and for enquiries regarding absentee or telephone bids, please contact Strauss & Co: [email protected] or call 072 337 8405.
