Tried & Tested: Tiffany Marx Inspired Jewellery

by Karisa

I’ve decided to do a new “Tried & Tested” blog series featuring locally made products & small business that I love. If you have any suggestions of awesome small businesses to check out – please email me at:

I discovered Tiffany Marx and her gorgeous jewellery about 2 years ago at the Lawns Market at The Roundhouse while I was shopping for a gift for a friend’s 40th birthday. I didn’t really know what I was looking for at the time, but when I set eyes on her seed pod earrings I knew they were just too special to put down again and I hoped that my friend would love them as much as I did.

Here’s the story behind these unique seed pod pieces:

And here’s a look at some of the gorgeous pieces in the range:

The range includes earrings (both studs & drop earring styles), stackable rings and delicate neck pieces – both in sterling silver & bronze. I really love that it’s a piece of South Africa that you can carry around with you wherever you go…

The even bigger selling point is that the lady behind these pieces is as beautiful, both inside & out, as the carefully considered designs that she creates.

I mean how gorgeous is this woman??

Since that first meeting (and seed pod earring purchase – which my friend loved btw), she’s also designed a stunning engagement ring for close friends of mine. Feast your eyes on this 18ct Rose Gold Solitare beauty with a out-of-this-world Oval Morganite stone:

I love the simplicity. I love how perfectly the rose gold pairs with the morganite. I basically just love everything about this ring.

But yeah, not only does she make gorgeous ready-to-wear pieces, she also does custom designs with anything from engagement rings to gifts-from-you-to-you. Here’s a quick look at a few more custom pieces that she’s done:

Be sure to also check out her Instagram account and Facebook page for more.

Because I’m nowhere near getting engaged (like ever! haha), my current list of lust-worthy, gotta have ’em items are a little more low key, but equally beautiful:

The earrings on the left & bottom right can be worn as you see them in these photos, or as separate pieces, making them super versatile. I also really love those silver earring top right & that ring middle right is just such a great statement piece. #DecisionsDecisions

Now usually you can pop into the Watershed Market in the V&A Waterfront to check out her designs in person, but of course due to the lockdown that’s not currently possible and it’s had quite a significant impact on her business & her ability to support her amazing all-female team.

So, with that in mind I want to encourage you to show her & her team some love by purchasing pieces which you can collect after the lockdown or by getting in touch if you have a custom design in mind. Not only will you be supporting a local business that deserves it, but you will also be able to take advantage of some amazing discounts she’s offering at present.

For more details on these discounts (which range from 25 – 50%), check out her “SALE” story highlight as shown below:

While you’re there, also check out her “My Team” story highlight to get a look at the amazing ladies that from part of the Tiffany Marx team. A special note: ALL proceeds from the SALE is going toward supporting her team. Not on Instagram? No stress, you’ll find the same info on Facebook as well. Also be on the lookout for 2 awesome competitions planned for later this month…

Ordering & payment is super easy:

  • Make contact by sending a direct message on Instagram, by emailing her at or by simply giving her a call on 083 534 2462.
  • Payment can be made via Snapscan, Payfast (for card payments) or EFT.

So why not treat yourself OR surprise a friend, family member or someone special with an extra special gift. Also don’t forget – mother’s day is on the horizon people! (there will be lots and lots of brownie points for life, guaranteed) 🙂
