– What inspired the range –
Inspired by the botanical abundance of the Pelagoniam Plant, more commonly known as Geranium. Every design is a sheer depiction of eloquent motifs of floral and foliage, defined in the majesty of 18K white gold and encrusted with a myriad of fine diamonds set along in symphony.
This collection is a composition of modern designs that blends with the heritage and craftsmanship of Uwe Koetter Jewellers. Each unique design is precisely crafted in aesthetics including the rose gold Geranium leaf and enchanting Protea leafs and intricately captures the tender and twirly essence of floral beauty. Highlighted with the daintiness of fine-cut diamonds, this collection is an ode to the indigenous flowers of Cape Town.
