We are based in the beautiful city of Cape Town, South Africa, and ship to customers around the globe. We understand the pleasure of holding a truly wonderful piece of silver, and recognise how difficult it can be making a decision to purchase online. We have tried to alleviate this with our descriptions and detailed photographs and our undertaking to offer a refund if you are not completely satisfied with your purchase.
