Jade is a niche jewellery store that specialises in finding creative inspiration and beauty from around the world and translating it into wearable pieces of art. Internationally sourced raw pearls and semi-precious gems are locally crafted and creatively curated, providing Jade customers with one-of-a-kind jewelry adornments. Much like the meaning of the colourway, Jade stands for balance, peace and authenticity. With three stores, located in Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Parkhurst, Jade provides both local and international jewellery enthusiasts with a variety of well-priced ready-made and custom pieces, as well as products for wholesale.
Karin Delport’s passion for jewellery and traveling is what lead to the start of the Jade success story. After living in China for three years, the family returned to South African soil – Karin with a case of pearls and a hopeful heart. Not long after, she explored wholesale trading with semi-precious stones and opened Jade in 2001. Under the guidance of Karin and her husband, Christoff, the business grew in popularity, strength and character over the years. From the start, daughter, Annemarie showed great interest in the business and together with her eye for detail and hard work, she proved herself the perfect candidate to take over the business. Today, respected entrepreneurs, husband and wife duo and proud owners of Jade, Rhys and Annemarie van Wyk, ensures that every jewellery creation is of the finest quality.
