About Jan Scherman - Jewellery Designer
The Art of Jewellery Perfected
Everyone has a story, and every story has those moments where we connect with others. Whether it’s a long-awaited and unexpected marriage proposal, a 60th birthday or a “just because” occasion, Scherman’s Jewellery will serve as bookmarks to these special moments in your life.
Scherman’s Jewellery aims to combine precision engineering and design art to create jewellery that does not just look beautiful but is also of such a high standard that it will stand the test of time.
Jan Scherman has a passion for great quality work and capturing the essence of expressing an unforgettable moment into a memorable jewellery piece.
After receiving an MQA scholarship to study jewellery design and manufacturing, Jan completes his B-Tech degree in jewellery at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT)in 2009.
After that, he does a two-year apprenticeship under a well established Cape Town Master Goldsmith. Here he learns all the techniques that will lay the groundwork for making high-end fine jewellery by hand.
With his apprenticeship complete, he does his Goldsmith’s trade test and becomes fully qualified.
Thereafter, he gets his dream job at a very well-respected name in the international high-end jewellery industry. Here he’s mentored by some of the best Goldsmiths, diamond setters and jewellery designers and learns the ins-and-outs of the diamond and jewellery industry.
As a result, the processes Jan use ensure that you get a highly superior quality jewellery piece that will stand the test of time. Above all, the meaning and symbolism behind each and every Scherman’s Jewellery piece is as unique as it’s wearer, for it was made for them.
After six years, Jan finally decides to take on a new challenge and subsequently, Scherman’s Jewellery Design is born.
