Custom diamond and gold rings

Bespoke Jewellery Cape Town

 Unique Custom Pieces Created Just For You

At Penchant Design, we understand that many people consider their clothes and jewellery not just an expression of their style, but also an extension of their personality. Our custom jewellery design service celebrates this and gives our clients the opportunity to work closely with us in creating pieces that truly represent their individuality.

Our in-house designers have a real passion for fine bespoke jewellery, and draw on many years of experience in the industry to carefully guide our clients through each step of the process – from conceptualisation and rough sketching to CAD rendering and production, which all take place in our fully-equipped workshop in Franschhoek.
