I’m happy to say welcome to a new jewellery brand in my favourite brands list.
Based in Cape Town, South Africa, Karin Rae Matthee started Dear Rae in 2010. In 2011 Morgan Xekethawana joined Karin in this fantastic project. In 2012 Raymond Kama arrived and in 2013 the team was completed thanks to the new entry Amy Keevy.
What to say.. what a team! With a lot of expertise, love for fine jewels, passion and sense of style, these people literally dress your arms, fingers, neck and ears with amazing and unique pieces.
I also like the idea that is behind the brand. Dear Rae Jewellery celebrate the beauty and ease of semplicity and translate into functional jewellery which can be worn everyday. Exactly what I normally look for in a jewel.
Another good news is that, except for the luxury gold rings, all items are ship internationally. Do you want another great news? They also take commission to personalize jewels for men or women or… engagement and wedding rings!
