Spoil your loved ones with some gorgeous jewellery!


Mark Gold

The owner of Mark Gold, Dean Gorrie, felt that the world has changed so much that he decided to have a destination-based business model. This was influential in opening their second store in the beautiful Umhlanga Arch. “To us, the traditional big shopping malls were not in line with our strategy,” he explains. “It’s about quality, not volume.”


Mark Gold’s Morningside store has been there for 22 years. The business was created by Dean Gorrie and his brother, Mark, 32 years ago. During that time, Mark Gold had not only carved a niche for itself at the top end of South Africa’s jewellery market but set itself apart through distinctive pieces such as the famous Mark Gold flower rings and the patented PUZZLE ring.  Dean believes that these have become as good as iconic. To date, more than 6000 PUZZLE rings have been sold. “We are happy to have expanded north, introducing the flourishing North Coast market to unique jewellery.”

After completing a five-year apprenticeship in jewellery manufacturing, Kevin Hall established Halls Designer Jewellery in 1996. Halls has an elegant showroom situated in Simbithi Office Park. “It was important for us to create a safe and private environment for our clients,” explains Kevin, who wants Halls clients to feel like his guests – comfortable and secure within the boundaries of Simbithi.

Their beautiful range of jewellery is mostly handcrafted pieces, made using trusted, traditional methods of manufacture.
