About our Jewellery
Dear Rae Jewellery manufactures hand-crafted, accessible, modern heirlooms born from classic concepts made for the contemporary individual. With natural lines and simplistic forms, created in only solid metals, our jewellery is made to be worn every day, by everyone.
Our jewellery not only celebrates beauty in simplicity but also recognises how classic shapes and forms can stay with you for a lifetime. From your very first pair of sleepers to sophisticated golden stacking bands that you may want to pass down to your children one day – there’s something for everyone, no matter how far along on your life adventure you are.
Every single Dear Rae piece is locally handcrafted in our Cape Town-based workshop by our passionate team of individuals - comprising goldsmiths, manufacturers, setters and designers.
SOLID 925 STERLING SILVER
The silver we work with is 925 sterling silver. This is effectively 92.5% silver, and 7.5% copper in alloy form. 925 sterling silver is a good choice for hypoallergenic skin types because of its high percentage of pure silver. Please note that all skin types are different and as all metals are made up of varying alloys, they can affect people differently.
SOLID 9CT YELLOW, WHITE & ROSE GOLD
For our standard collections, we use 9ct yellow, rose and white gold. For custom designs, you can choose what suits you best - ranging from 9ct to 18ct. Aside from its strength and durability, all our gold is also hypoallergenic and perfectly suited for those with sensitive skin. Please note that all skin types are different and as all metals are made up of varying alloys, they can affect people differently.
Our Custom Designs service is for clients wanting to collaborate in creating a piece that is one of a kind. With years of combined experience, our designers take pride in bringing bespoke engagement rings, wedding bands and signature custom pieces to life.
