Over the past year we have developed a huge girl crush on our SA jewellery designers. SA is home to some truly world class design talent and craftsmanship. We’re in the process of partnering with some of our favourite SA designers, like Kirsten Goss, to bring them to you on our own carefully curated online shopping platform.
If by some miracle you haven’t yet heard of her, today, we’re introducing you to Kirsten Goss Jewellery. We’ve featured the super stylish jewellery of the uniquely talented Kirsten Goss on Equilibrio on numerous occasions. Mich and I own a lot of her jewellery so we’re really excited to share her story with you.
ABOUT KIRSTEN GOSS
Kirsten Goss grew up in Durban and studied Fine Art at Stellenbosch University. Soon after graduating, she travelled to London where she worked and designed for leading fashion jewellery house Erickson Beamon. In 2002, she broke away and started her own label in the UK where she opened her first store in London in 2005. After returning to South Africa, Kirsten opened three more stores in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. Earlier this year, she opened her stunning new brand flagship store in the very fashionable Silo district in Cape Town.
Over the years, Kirsten Goss has collected an impressive number of awards. Some of the most notable include winning the Entrepreneur of the Year in the SA Business Club Business Awards 2011 in London, and being featured as one of the UK Professional Jeweller Hot 100 jewellers of the year in 2013. Then in 2012, she won the award for Most Beautiful Object in South Africa, at the Design Indaba for her Lily Pad ring pictured here. An utterly lust-worthy piece of SA design.
In addition to the numerous accolades and recognition of her talent, Kirsten Goss has built a small following with celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker and Rosamund Pike. She’s even designed pieces for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding!
KIRSTEN GOSS JEWELLERY
Kirsten Goss jewellery reflects her fearless and quirky nature. Influenced by her gran’s collection of Scandi jewellery, it is contemporary at its core, with organic inspirations and a playful edge. The jewellery produced by the Kirsten Goss studio in Durban is of the highest quality with every piece being finished by hand, and with meticulous attention to detail. All Kirsten Goss jewellery is either 18kt gold, sterling silver, silver and gold vermeil or brass and gold vermeil. Each item of Kirsten Goss jewellery is accompanied by a soft cloth pouch and sturdy box in which you can safely store and protect your jewellery.
Another notable plus of owning a piece of Kirsten Goss jewellery is their after-sales service. All sterling silver and gold vermeil items can be replated. To keep your jewels looking as good as new, Kirsten Goss offers a free first replating. But keep a look out, they often run specials or promos’s which can even include a later free replating of your jewellery!
