New Uwe Koetter showroom

What could be better than having a number of South Africa's progressive luxury brands under one roof? You'll find it all at the new Uwe Koetter jewellery concept store at the Cape Quarter Lifestyle Village in De Waterkant, Cape Town. In addition to the world-renowned Uwe Koetter jewellery range, the magnificent space features its very own in-store bubbly bar by Allée Bleue Wine Estate, and a handy wedding and events consultancy in association with the Aleit Group so that you can plan your 'big day' on site. The focal point of the showroom, however, is the dedicated jewellery design epicentre, where you can get expert design advice, have the opportunity to learn about the art of jewellery-making, and to work closely with specialist designers, diamond graders, setters and previous metal smiths. This collaborative process ensures that you're left with only the most exclusive and one-of-a-kind bespoke jewels. Add to this a delicious glass of wine from the Allée Bleue collection and you're guaranteed the highest calibre of retail therapy possible. Uwe Koetter's Johan Louw says, 'As Africa's first concept store to offer the complete Engagement Package, patrons can look forward to a truly unique and engaging experience unlike any other.' The launch event on 30 August is being co-ordinated by the Aleit Group, with wine supplied by Alle Bleue, Whisky by Johnny Walker and chocolates by Lindt.
