In 1984, when Peter opened his own store, he had an eye for style and an in-depth knowledge of the jewellery making process. As he had never worked on the bench himself, he surrounded himself with young designers and goldsmiths, all capable of turning his ideas and dreams into reality.
The team has changed over the years, with some retiring and some moving on to other pursuits. What has remained constant however, is Peter’s ability to attract and encourage new talent, and the team of designers and jewellers at Peter Gilder today is in his own words, “the most talented we have ever had the pleasure of working with”. “I am so proud of what they have achieved and I would like to showcase their talents and to provide only a few examples of what ‘Handmade in Constantia’ is all about.
