sterling silver necklace
Celebrating Herschel’s 100 years with this commemorative jewellery we were honoured to design for 2022.
Sir John Herschel has a special place in South African & astrological history as he chose Cape Town as the spot to place his enormous telescope and map the Southern Hemisphere constellations.
As a result we chose to use the theme of the stars and constellations as our design focus. either a single guiding star; or the Southern Cross (Crux) which has historically been one of the greatest navigation tools for explorers and adventures since early time.Available in sterling silver or electroplated in 18k gold (vermeil).Kirsten Goss is luxury, contemporary, artisanal, handmade jewellery company locally crafted in South Africa.
