“Consistent Top Quality”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Just returned with a ring which I inherited from my mother and was redesigned by Johan Louw - so beautiful! All of 30 years ago my husband surprised me with an engagement ring designed by Uwe Koetter - the wedding bands, ring for our son's birth, a pendant to memorize a big career step etc followed. In all these years we were never disappointed. Having lived elsewhere in between, sometimes these items were cleaned/valued/repaired by other jewelers who would always remark on the fantastic workmanship. We have a lot of visitors, friends, family and acquaintances, and I would not think of sending anyone anywhere else for their jewellery!

Thank you also for also referring your visitors, friends and family to UK. We greatly appreciate this! Our best regards, the Uwe Koetter team

“Exceptional service from Uwe Koetter staff”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

My wife recently had a ring designed at Uwe Koetter. We received exceptional service from Shane Mackrill. He was extremely knowledgable and very customer focussed. He made us fell truly at home and valued as a customer. The other staff were also very friendly and welcoming.
The finished product was really breath taking. I strongly recommend anyone looking for quality designs and exceptional service to contact Shane Mackrill at Uwe Koetter.

“Custom designed jewellery”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Hi Johan Louw, Gemologist and Head Designer.
To celebrate the renewing of outré wedding vows you redesigned Sand's engagement ring (even after 46 years) and especially the emerald that you created from my memory of one stolen 28 years before. We were delighted with the outcome and the engagement ring is daily reminder All who see it admire the ring’s unique design you created.
We have been UK customers for almost 40 years and will always return for trusted and quality jewellery at Uwe Koetter as does our extended Cape Town and international family (USA). UK are a world class company as good as found anywhere.

“Brilliant service and design”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Going to Uwe Koetter and getting Johan Louw to design my rings was the best experience! He designed exctly what I wanted and made sure all was ready and perfect on time. They treat you like sincere interest and care. Johan and his staff make you feel at home. With the vast experience in store, you will get the best in jewellery at a reasonable price. I even took my old jewellery and had a gorgeous ring designed by Anneke. Great people to do business with.
