Canto Goldsmith and Jeweller was founded in 1955 by Jürgen and Dorothee Canto, who relocated with their family from Germany to Namibia. In 2003 the business was taken over by son André and his wife Simone, who injected fresh new ideas into what has become an iconic Namibian business. They produce exceptional quality items under their maxim “jewellery with meaning”. Each design is individually handcrafted and tells a unique story. Canto accepted the challenge to create hand crafted jewellery art pieces for our handbags. Silver is the metal of choice and natural local Namibian gemstones add glamour to our evening collection. Each design is carefully crafted to ensure sublime aesthetics, without compromising on functionality and fit.
