Philip Wulfsohn Jewellery opened its doors to the public in September 1992, shortly after Philip won the De Beers Diamonds Today Award.

It began as purely a workshop providing the public with a service facility to commission special pieces of jewellery, and to remodel or repairs existing pieces. Initially the workshop was manned solely by Philip with his wife Paola, who attended to the administrative side of the business.

After three transformative years, the business relocated to the main road of Sea Point. By this time the Philip Wulfsohn Jewellery family expanded to include two skilled goldsmiths, who joined forces with Philip to bring his visionary designs to life.

In a pivotal moment of 2003, Philip embraced change once again, relocating our atelier to the captivating embrace of the 'Cape Quarter Lifestyle Centre' in De Waterkant. A place that epitomises what Philip Wulfsohn Jewellery is all about, stylish with the essence of quality and special attention to detail. The shop, imbued with contemporary flair, showcases an extensive array of prêt-a-porter jewellery, catering to everyone.

Today, Philip Wulfsohn Jewellery’s reputation is acknowledged internationally for it’s rivalled synthesis of quality, craftsmanship, and design executed in gold, platinum and silver, utilising a wide variety of gemstones.

What sets Philip Wulfsohn Jewellery apart is the very personal and hands-on approach that Philip took to his craft. He believes that your jewellery should reflect you and your lifestyle, so he dedicates time to forge connections with each client, developing rapport and insight into their individuality and preferences, while establishing a price range for the piece.

From bespoke commissions to a range of ready to wear pieces, from repairing and remodelling old jewellery to creating new pieces, Philip and his skilled artisans embrace every challenge – regardless of scale or peculiarity. “If the original idea doesn’t work, I’ll find a way to make it work”, he says. “Sometimes we almost design it together.”

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.

With each creation, we share in our clients' narratives, breathing life into dreams and crafting legacies. Join us in this remarkable journey, where imagination and craftsmanship unite to illuminate the path to timeless beauty.
