To be truly unique, genuinely distinctive, expressing individual feelings and personality – these are the qualities Van Deijl appreciate most about our clients.

Several excellent designers, highly qualified goldsmiths and staff members well trained in performing watch repairs and specialist evaluations will gladly assist in any way they can.

Custom Design

Clients are invited to make an appointment with any Van Deijl designer to discuss their ideas, and collaborate on an exquisite, very personal creation. Items can be designed both on paper and/or by using sophisticated 3D computer software. Van Deijl won the prestige design award of De Beers Design Forum, the Shining Light Award, in 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2005, and has designed creations for Miss South Africa more than once.



In modern and fully equipped workshops, highly qualified Van Deijl goldsmiths from across the world create extraordinary pieces on-site in gold, platinum, silver, diamonds and other precious stones – continually setting new standards for quality and craftsmanship.



The Van Deijl gemmological laboratories enable well trained and accredited experts to evaluate diamonds and other precious stones on-site according to acknowledged international standards (GIA and FGA). The valuation of timepieces, both modern and vintage, is also offered as a specialist service for insurance and resale purposes.


Watch Repairs

In his day Wilco van Deijl was not only the most highly qualified jeweller in South Africa, but also the top candidate in the world in the British horological examinations. The same expertise and craftsmanship is still backed by excellent service today. The highly trained staff of Van Deijl Watches will gladly assist when even the most priceless heirloom is in need of repair.
