Ok so I got super spoilt by the team over at Dear Rae. WOW. I received a beautifully packaged ring yesterday with loads of photos of their new Let’s Go Tropsi Collection, which is really pretty and delicate and made up of glints of gold, native shapes and lavish colours that come through in the use of precious stones. I’m a huge fan of Dear Rae’s creations, in fact every time I wear any Dear Rae piece that I own, someone asks me where it comes from. I find everything that they make so simple and unfussy, but really eye catching and beautiful at the same time and I’m super happy with my awesome ‘delicious monster’ ring that they sent me, which I definitely think needs some friends, because they look so good stacked.
I have attached some pictures of their latest look book and collection, that I cannot wait to see in real life. I’m going to have to practice some self-control when I do, something I’m not very good at, but hey…
You can buy Dear Rae pieces online or from their studio – Shop 3, The Woodstock Foundry, 160 Albert Road, Cape Town, South Africa. You can also catch them at the Food Wine Design this year in Johannesburg on the 7th to the 9th of November on the Hyde Park rooftop.
