Jin Jin du Cap Jewellery in Constantia Village Courtyard is an ode to all things deliciously sparkly. I popped in last week after owner Suzi Wallinder repositioned her business strategy, spruced up her treasure trove and offered a Jin Jin du Cap jewellery giveaway to one of my readers. *rubs hands in glee*
Previously known as Jin Jin Jewellery, Suzi added ‘du Cap’ to her brand name for good reason. Until then, despite having visited numerous times before, I and possibly others, were blissfully unaware that she is the designer behind most of the pieces. The brand repositioning has created an awareness and a celebration of the designer’s 15 years in the jewellery industry. Worth applause in South Africa’s current junk status economy.
Good customer service. With the emergence of design talent in our country and strong ‘Buy Local’ campaigns, there’s no shortage of homegrown products around. (You can’t swing a cat in an open field without hitting a fleamarket.) Entrepreneurs therefore need to look beyond their creativity to strike gold and I think Suzi has.
Listening to how she interacts with her clients is testament to how business owners should operate if they want to attract customers. Suzi bubbles over with joie de vive, while still remaining humble about her knowledge of gems and her success in business. It’s an art. No one wants to shop from a misery who does nothing but moan about Zuma or the value of the rand. Luxury shopping is escapism so customers prefer happiness, fun and beauty, all of which you’ll find in her store.
So, about that giveaway.
One reader stands a chance to win this gorgeous pair of handmade gemmy clear rose quartz and sterling silver earrings worth R900 compliments of Suzi Wallinder and Jin Jin du Cap.
