To celebrate this festive season and as our gift to you, our loyal readers, ELLE Decoration’s 25 Days of Giving is here to bring you daily prizes of the best in decor and design. Go on and enter – you could be one of our daily winners!

Today in our 25 Days of Giving celebration, Dear Rae Jewellery is offering a Gold Coil Pendant worth R1 850!


Dear Rae Jewellery is made up of natural lines and simplistic forms translated into gold, silver, brass and copper, with the occasional gemstone. These precious pieces are designed to be worn everyday. They celebrate the beauty and ease of simplicity and translate into functional jewellery.

Launched in 2010, each Dear Rae piece is designed and made by Karin Rae Matthee and her five hand picked manufacturers at her Cape Town based studio. The studio and workshop create one space, allowing the ancient art of jewellery making to be exposed to all who visit.

Dear Rae believes that each piece of jewellery is a treasured adornment. Working with solid sterling silver and gold, each ring, pendant and bracelet is made to tell a story of its own.
