RISKING IT ALL IN THE COUNTRYSIDE
It was in 1983, 3 years after moving to Cape Town that Peter Gilder decided it was time to move to “the country”!
Seizing the chance to get a store in the then under construction Constantia Village, Peter was the pioneer tenant in a mall that hadn’t even got off the ground.
His friends in the industry thought he was crazy and as one of them said, “a jewellery store in the winelands doesn’t make sense.
34 years later, and many thousands of hand-made bespoke pieces later, Peter Gilder has developed into Cape Town’s favourite jewellery studio.
And it doesn’t stop there. With his recently renovated “studio with a storefront” concept, Peter has embarked on the next phase of his remarkable career of more than 50 years in the industry.
