Uwe Koetter Diamonds and Gemstones. Being one of the only Cape Town jeweller who has a De Beers Trained Diamond Grading Expert on site, Uwe Koetter only select stones with the best qualities across Cut, Colour, Clarity and Carat.
In-house diamond expert, Eileen Wium says, "Proportion is vital. Without good proportions Colour, Clarity and Caratage the value becomes redundant – which is why we guarantee every stone bought from Uwe Koetter is perfectly proportioned: to maximise its brilliance and value."
Uwe Koetter Tanzanite. At Uwe Koetter, we have a vast selection of loose tanzanite gemstones and jewellery, which we craft into our world-renowned designs.
In its rough state, Tanzanite is typically a reddish-brown colour stone. It requires specialised heat treatment to 600°C in a gemmological oven to bring out the blue violet of the stone. The deeper the intensity of blue, the more valuable the stone – however, specific skin tones complement lighter or darker Tanzanite colours.
Master goldsmiths, including renowned award-winning designer Johan Louw, create designs that surpass your expectations while taking your style and budget requirements into full consideration. The result is jewellery of superlative quality, meticulously fashioned by hand.

"While it's thrilling to work on special pieces for the likes of HM Queen Elizabeth II, I am happiest when creating a bespoke engagement ring," says Johan Louw. Its promise is a lifetime of memories, and the start of a loving journey.

The journey is engaging from the very start: allowing you to work closely with a skilled designer, an expert diamond grader, specialist setters, as well as skilled gold, silver and platinum smiths – as we handcraft a bespoke design that is truly one-of-a-kind.
