Raynor’s greatest skill as a manufacturing jeweller lies not only in his knowledge and love of precious and semi-precious stones but in his personalised attentive approach. He’s a people’s person through and through and as a natural communicator, he instils confidence in his clients while he interprets their needs. 


Raynor’s experience in the jewellery trade dates back to 1987 when, as a schoolboy in Port Elizabeth, he worked at Midland Jewellers on weekends and during school holidays. He learned the basics of jewellery manufacturing from Maurice Levin, owner of four jewellery stores at the time, one of which his father managed. Later in Cape Town, he worked at Olga in Cavendish Square, first as a designer and later as a manager, before he opened his own shop - Raynor’s Design Studio - in 2006.


A personal consultation with Raynor provides inspiration in designing that unique piece of jewellery, which is a collaboration between Raynor and you, the client.  He is a firm believer in 'use what you already have’. Bring in that fatigued piece of jewellery or unworn items which have been lying around for years and allow him to create something special just for you, whilst utilising your own stones and metal.


At Raynor’s Design Studio a small team of dedicated staff are ready to meet your individual needs, including on-site goldsmiths.  With Raynor at the helm, they create top quality fine jewellery and have the intention to grow with their clients – when people buy jewellery from Raynor’s Design Studio, it is often the beginning of a long-term relationship.
