We meet Danielle Porter, owner of Danielle Camera jewellery
We love rings! Rings on our finger and rings on our toes, and just about anything else that glitters and sparkles, so of course we headed off to check out this beautiful range of demi-fine jewellery.
Okay, we had to google what demi-fine meant – but it’s basically jewellery that artfully blurs the lines between fine jewellery and fashion jewellery – and at an affordable price point too.
We also love that Danielle Camera uses Certified Sustainable Gold in some of their collections – basically, this means that the gold used comes from a mine in an area that aims to uplift the community and focusses on the Human Rights of its workers – this is a huge deal!
Danielle Porter has spent her career in the local and international fine art and jewellery industry and is superbly passionate about good design and quality craftsmanship.
Being both artist and entrepreneur Danielle is the founder and CEO at Gage & Porter, the first South African Design house to specialize in the production of collectible high-jewellery Minaudiere Bags.
She also has a hand in Miss & Misses – which is a social selling platform which uses technology and social media channels to drive ‘social commerce’ and gives young women the opportunity to run their own micro businesses. Nice one.
Their customers are a complete mix of men and women looking to invest in quality contemporary jewellery, that will last and doesn’t cost a fortune.
They also work with local small to medium sized jewellery manufacturers, which helps others grow their business – a shocking fact is South Africa is one of the leading global suppliers of the raw materials for fine jewellery, but our country is a net importer of jewellery – so shopping local is super important to help grow our own economy too.
All Danielle Camera ranges are developed in-house, and collections are updated 6 times a year. They plan on adding a kids line as well in 2019 – so some exciting developments are on the cards.
This is certainly the perfect collection for women and man who are looking to personalize their style with affordable contemporary jewellery.
Danielle Camera are all about celebrating moments, the big ones and the beauty in the little every-day moments – and that is why we love them so much.
