Our Philosophy

Jewellery with a Meaning

Even though the changing colours or shapes of fashion influence jewellery a bit, there are no real trends in precious jewellery. Uniqueness and personality plays a far bigger role in jewellery design. A piece of jewellery should always underline the personality of the wearer.

Commission Process

Wearing jewellery is a way of keeping memories alive

When you decide to have a piece made, we will work on the style through sketches. We can than define the potential materials, offering choices of precious metals and stones. This process in important because it allows the client to get the feel of the materials and envision how the piece will be when it is complete.

The Craftsmanship

How the Jewellery is made

We are still using some of the old techniques and tools that the goldsmiths used thousands of years ago. That is actually the main base of our work, nowadays enriched by modern casting or computerized techniques. This paired with the artistic freedom that we have in our time, makes jewellery that is expressive, individual and of everlasting value.

History

The company Canto Goldsmith and Jeweller was founded in 1955 by my parents Hans Jürgen Canto and Dorothee Canto. As I child, I grew up playing with precious stones as well as observing how my father worked and once I was old enough to embark on my own journey I decided to study Fine Arts ‘specializing in Metal Technology’ at the Stellenbosch University.
