The Célébrer Luxury Wedding Workshop: Uwe Koetter Jewellers

Prestigious Cape Town jeweler Uwe Koetter Jewellers is joining the high-profile line up of the Célébrer Luxury Wedding Workshop, which is taking place on the 4th and 5th of November 2011 at Val de Vie Wine & Polo Estate.

Design extraordinaire, Johan Louw of Uwe Koetter Jewellers will be giving brides-to-be an inspirational insight into the art of jewellery design, with specific emphasis on designing engagement rings, wedding bands and bridal jewellery accessories.

For Johan, designing an engagement ring is always a collaborative process between him and the bride-to-be. Before any design commences he tells his clients that at the end of the day they don’t get a Johan Louw Design – but rather their own unique design in partnership with Uwe Koetter Jewellers and Johan himself. “It’s thrilling to see the joy and excitement in a client’s eyes when we realise their vision”, declares Louw.

Uwe Koetter Jewellers aim is to create more than just an engagement ring or wedding band for bridal couples. What they create is a unique design, a partnership and an experience especially tailored to their clients. This experience engages couples from the very beginning, by allowing them to work closely with a skilled designer (Johan Louw), an expert diamond grader and setters as well as skilled gold, silver and platinum smiths, to handcraft bespoke designs for their clientele.

Johan Louw is South Africa’s most celebrated jewellery designer – having won several prestigious design accolades such as the De Beers Shining Light of Africa Competition, Anglo Gold Riches of Africa 1st Prize, the Platinum Africa Award and the De Beers Diamonds Today Award. One of Uwe Koetter Jewellers proudest moments was when Former State President Nelson Mandela commissioned them to create a commemorative brooch for Queen Elizabeth on her state visit to South Africa in 1995. International celebrity clients include Kate Moss, Joan & Jackie Collins, Joanna Lumley, Nicholas Cage and Stevie Wonder to name a few.

With over 43 years’ experience in jewellery design, Uwe Koetter Jewellers have created countless of one-of-a-kind jewellery pieces for numerous satisfied customers, and look forward to many more years of creating, celebrating  and sharing client’s unique memories and experiences.

Uwe Koetter Jewellers will be giving away a pair of Diamond and Tanzanite Earings to one lucky bride-to-be at the Célébrer Luxury Wedding Workshop at Val de Vie. This magnificent pair of earings will ensure you have something blue, and something new for your big day and are valued at over R16 000.00.
