Artist Marius Koen was born in Goodwood, Cape Town, grew up in Johannesburg and went to the National School of Arts where he learnt the basics of becoming a goldsmith. Now after numerous years in the business and a private studio, Marius brings you Darme jewellery.

Based in  L’Agulhas in the Overberg district, he makes durable products made out of gold, platinum, silver, even metals like titanium and wood. He calls himself a jewellery-engineer and makes not only rings and neck pieces but sunglasses, watches and bangles, some out of ebony and olive wood.

Marius is inspired by nature and says;  “You can find stars in flowers. Every time I make something, it’s a process of discovering ingenuity. I’m a maker. I like the mechanical part of things.  Certain processes of jewellery can be done by machines, but the finish has to be done by a human. No machine can see a certain unique characteristic and incorporate it.”

Featured here on the web site are one of a kind hand carved wooden sunglasses and some original interactive pieces never seen before like Marius’ 3 piece engagement ring and the Love Locket pendant. All designs are open to interpretation and clients may want a personal touch like a secret message inscribed within a ring or certain stones, like birth stones  set within a piece and  Marius is sensitive to making a long lasting piece that is special and significant to the person it is being made for.

“I don’t just want to be a goldsmith; I want to be an artist and sell my works. I don’t just want to make a sale but also to make others happy.”

Here at Darme we want our clients to be as involved as the goldsmith in the creative process of designing that unique piece of jewellery. Ideas are discussed in the privacy and comfort of our studio over a leisurely cup or glass of refreshment.

Take the plunge to that fist step in the creation of your own unique piece and contact Marius during business hours.
