Kai Schmidt Jewellery

Passion & craftsmanship is what springs to mind when I think about Kai and his beautiful jewellery, or should I say masterpieces. No ask is ever too big or too much, making sure you always leave 100% happy and in love with the work. We have been going to Kai for over 10 years now and every piece of jewelry he has made for us is exceptional, I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else.

Kai designed and made my engagement ring with a reference from my husband, and it is the most beautiful & unique ring I have ever seen. I have not come across a ring that resembles any aspect of my ring in the 2 years which I have had it. He also made my wedding band, which suits my engagement ring perfectly, my wedding earrings (exactly what I wanted) and my husband's wedding band which he says he doesn't even notice because it is so comfortable. I also received the most beautiful black diamond band for Christmas from my husband, which again is completely 1 of a kind. The service is great and jewelry is always on time and delivered to you where ever you are in a beautiful Kai Schmidt box. I also love that everything is made by hand as there are not many people left who still do this.

I have been using Kai Schmidt for many years now starting with my wife’s wedding ring. I have always enjoyed the open conversations about what I am looking for and the clear guidance they give making for a fantastic product each and every time.
The quality of the jewelry they have made and designed for me have been world class, I could not imagine using anyone else.

Ek besit - daar is vir my net een juwelier/vervaardiger in Johannesburg en dit is die rede hoekom ek al my juweliersware oor die afgelope 3 jaar by Kai Schmidt laat maak. Ongelooflike vakmanskap, diens en vriendelike betroubaarheid. Seker nog een van die enigste plekke waar jy uitstekende handgemaakte juweliersware kan laat maak!!!

I am an executive assistant at a prominent IT Company and I have taken delivery of various gifts of jewellery for my bosses wife. These gifts were made by Kai Schmidt. I was impressed by the quality and the excellent service received. I have used their services on an number of occasions in my personal capacity to have jewellery remodelled and also had a couple of items made at my request. I am constantly impressed and delighted with the honesty quality of workmanship and professional prompt service that Kai Schmidt offer.

My fiancé and myself were sourcing jewellery designers to design my engagement ring and were booking various people. We both booked different designers in the same building-purely coincidental, one after the other, not knowing that the designers were partners. Only on arriving and chatting did we find this out.
On meeting Kai, and coming to us on a brilliant recommendation, we were immediately very happy to allow him to be our "official guy" to design my engagement ring. My fiancé proposed with the most beautiful diamond, so we still needed to put it all together. I didn't really know what I wanted and after lots of google searches and going into shops to try on various rings, I had a vague idea but didn't know how to put it all together.
Kai is very professional and looks at everything that will contribute to your rings look. He looks at your hand to see what will suit it and asks various questions to see if you like a modern or an aged timeless piece. I have always loved baguette diamonds but my fiancé bought me a round diamond and without hesitation, Kai drew up the most amazing "Simple,yet Elegant,round diamond and baguette" setting with a touch of me (protea shape added)….It was stunning. The whole process from concept to final product only took a few days and between Kai and my fiancé, they organised my fiancé picked it up without me knowing and whilst celebrating my birthday with all my friends in a restaurant, my fiancé surprised me again with my gorgeous ring with engraving inside that will always remind me of the day my fiancé, now husband, proposed. He also designed our wedding bands at a later stage, which are simple but match the engagement setting perfectly.
Kai is a professional who knows his stuff. You can't go wrong by allowing Kai to design your jewellery piece.
