ST•ERASMUS is a jewellery range as beautiful as its namesake. A distinctive luxury jewellery label from South African accessories design talent Pieter Louis Erasmus, ST•ERASMUS has cultivated a style which combines traditional techniques with contemporary forms and materials.
Steeped in cross cultural inspiration from the textures of the African landscape, edgy London, fashionable & stylish Paris and exotic India with artisans that have inherit they craft from their parents and grandparents before them, ST•ERASMUS is the culmination of all these influences. As we live in a global village, ST•ERASMUS mirrors the multi cultural world we all live in and turn this inspiration into jewellery.
ST•ERASMUS jewellery has an instantly recognisable three-dimensional statement style with a sophisticated feminine edge. Using traditional artisan production techniques and signature Zari thread crochet (a fine metallic gold/silver wire thread usually woven into Indian clothing), Swarovski crystal and beading to construct intricately layered bib-style necklaces, long length necklaces, cocktail rings, cuffs, brooches and earrings.
ST•ERASMUS jewellery is sumptuous in texture and screams of refined modern opulence. It is experimental yet the ultimate wearable jewellery brand for the 21st century.
ST•ERASMUS has been growing for the past four years. Pieter Erasmus (the Creative Head) in partnership with Dipankar Mukherjee (the Business Head) now employ a group of local artisans who work meticulously to assist them in the creation of these intricate designs, in their studio in New Delhi, India.
ST•ERASMUS has many notable fans around the globe. It was most famously worn by the First Lady of United States – Michelle Obama, British Singer – Alexandra Burke and Bollywood Actor - Priyanka Chopra.
