Daisies and Penchant Design

Daisies Daisies Daisies!

While Penchant Design has an impressive portfolio of bespoke designs, together with a wide range of beautiful jewellery, our passion has always been daisies. The first ring we ever produced was a plain silver band with four engraved daisies on it, and our range of daisy designs just keeps growing. Everything from our more delicate little Blossom designs to the bigger pieces in our Daisy range. Each Daisy and Blossom design is given their own lady’s name – Diane, Catherine, Margaret, Desray and so many more. So, here at Penchant we are daisy crazy!

We love mixing different golds and we love coloured gemstones, and our Daisy and Blossom designs provide the perfect opportunity to play with an endless range of colour combinations.

What's with all the daisies?!

It’s difficult to fathom the appeal of the simple daisy and the emotion it evokes. A daisy is cheerful; it’s uplifting; it’s the epitome of sweetness; it’s humble and uncomplicated; but above all, it’s always perfect. Perhaps it’s the power a daisy holds in it’s ability to determine if he/she loves me or loves me not.
Perhaps it subconsciously reminds one of the innocence of a child’s drawing. Is it not the only flower children ever draw?
How is it that to be given just one single little daisy can lighten ones mood so… one single little daisy?

You’d think a daisy is a daisy is a daisy, and that people would say “enough with all the daisies! Give us something new and exciting!”. But that is simply just not the case. And rightly so, because it’s often the simple little things in life that make it a delight.

We will always be the shop with the daisies...

Fourteen years later Penchant Design is still designing and making daisy rings, but with a new lady holding the compass – goldsmith and jewellery designer Jackie Hahn, a Stellenbosch University graduate and another daisy fan. The daisy rings are set to continue, and who knows where they’ll end up. But one thing’s for sure, Penchant Design will always be “the shop with the daisies”.

- Joy Denton

"When my sister on that day told us to go in and check out what you guys were able to do, I did not for one second think that we would get exactly what we wanted. I mean, this was Franschhoek after all and I could only imagine the rich and famous being able to afford the jewellery that you probably offered. How wrong were we! From the moment you sat us down, and there were a lot of us, you were attentive, friendly, professional and really looked like you were interested in getting us what we wanted as opposed to trying to sell us the world. You instinctively knew what Lisa wanted and you got that for her. When you asked us on the Friday if we were still looking at other places we were amazed that you even thought that, you had totally won us over and we knew you would deliver something special. I think in the end of the day, Lisa is the one that ultimately is the final say in this and judging by how much she loves the ring, I can only say, BRAVO to you and Penchant designs. Please thank the rest of the staff as well as they are all superstars in our opinion! All the best to you and Penchant designs, you deserve all the success in the world. Cheers,"

Attentive, Friendly and Professional

"What an amazing experience! I will most definitely go back. The sales consultant was so kind and really knew what suited me best for my event. I wish all jewelry places could be like they are. Thank you also for the earrings you specially made for my baby girl back home, next time I'll bring her along ;)"

"That is the right word. I don 't like it - I love it. Many thanks for the warm welcome and professional love of diamonds. I feel it when wearing my rings. Why are you so far away?

Every time, after looking at what is available in the market field, I find myself returning to you time and again because of the excellent service, the beautiful designs, and wonderful staff. The workmanship is just so good, the attention to every detail is always there. You can be so proud of your team and please convey my gratitude to each of them! Thank you for enabling us to experience joy in trying times and making it truly worthwhile to work hard and still receive some spoils in the form of precious and beautiful jewellery! That’s my story anyway!
