Daisies and Penchant Design

Daisies Daisies Daisies!

While Penchant Design has an impressive portfolio of bespoke designs, together with a wide range of beautiful jewellery, our passion has always been daisies. The first ring we ever produced was a plain silver band with four engraved daisies on it, and our range of daisy designs just keeps growing. Everything from our more delicate little Blossom designs to the bigger pieces in our Daisy range. Each Daisy and Blossom design is given their own lady’s name – Diane, Catherine, Margaret, Desray and so many more. So, here at Penchant we are daisy crazy!

We love mixing different golds and we love coloured gemstones, and our Daisy and Blossom designs provide the perfect opportunity to play with an endless range of colour combinations.

What's with all the daisies?!

It’s difficult to fathom the appeal of the simple daisy and the emotion it evokes. A daisy is cheerful; it’s uplifting; it’s the epitome of sweetness; it’s humble and uncomplicated; but above all, it’s always perfect. Perhaps it’s the power a daisy holds in it’s ability to determine if he/she loves me or loves me not.
Perhaps it subconsciously reminds one of the innocence of a child’s drawing. Is it not the only flower children ever draw?
How is it that to be given just one single little daisy can lighten ones mood so… one single little daisy?

You’d think a daisy is a daisy is a daisy, and that people would say “enough with all the daisies! Give us something new and exciting!”. But that is simply just not the case. And rightly so, because it’s often the simple little things in life that make it a delight.

We will always be the shop with the daisies...

Fourteen years later Penchant Design is still designing and making daisy rings, but with a new lady holding the compass – goldsmith and jewellery designer Jackie Hahn, a Stellenbosch University graduate and another daisy fan. The daisy rings are set to continue, and who knows where they’ll end up. But one thing’s for sure, Penchant Design will always be “the shop with the daisies”.
