From special commissions to a range of ready to wear pieces… from repairing and remodelling old jewellery to creating new works in gold, platinum and silver… there is no commission too large, too small or too unusual for Philip and his goldsmiths.
Philip Wulfsohn Jewellery opened its doors to the public in September 1992. It began as purely a workshop providing the public with a service facility to commission special pieces of jewellery ie. Engagement rings, anniversary gifts as well as remodelling of old jewellery. Included in the service was an excellent repair service. Initially the workshop was manned solely by Philip with his wife Paola, who attended to the administrative side of the business. After 3 years, the business relocated to the main road of Sea Point. By this time Philip employed two other goldsmiths to assist with the manufacture of his designs.
Today Philip Wulfsohn Jewellery’s reputation is acknowledged internationally for it’s quality, service and design which is executed in gold, platinum and silver. No commission is too small or odd. Looking back over the years, Philip smiles, recollecting the occasion a client commissioned him to encase an extremely sentimental walnut shell which she had retained since childhood from a tree outside her home in Poland, prior to the Second World War. Included in some of the strange requests was the one to incorporate a child’s first tooth in an 18 carat gold pendant and even a sterling silver “dog tag” for a Malamute puppy.
In January 2003 Philip made the decision to relocate the business and workshop to the newfangled ‘Cape Quarter’ in De Waterkant. A place that epitomizes what Philip Wulfsohn Jewellery is all about, stylish with the essence of quality and special attention to detail. The trendy shop now also carries a vast range of prêt-a-porter jewellery for those impulsive or urgent buys.
