Ida Elsje is a Capetonian jewellery designer who designs minimalist pieces that are all equally striking in their own way.

The Ida Elsje shiny-finish ‘Hey Jude’ bangle is a diamond tube-clasp bangle containing a 0.10 carat KL/VS round brilliant-cut diamond.

All of Ida Elsje’s bangles are handmade in her Cape Town studio, and her brass and bronze bangles are made from solid brass or bronze, and not just plated. Her designs aren’t only limited to bangles – choose from a variety of elaborate headpieces, rings and earring sets, all designed according to a specific theme or inspiration.

In order for your custom Ida Elsje items to last a good few years in your accessory drawer, it’s recommended that you keep them in a box separate to your other jewellery items.

Ida Elsje’s designs have been featured at New York and Paris Fashion Week.
