Manufacture of Jewellery and Related Articles


South Africa is one of the largest producers of gold, diamonds and platinum in the world. Despite the wealth of these resources, its jewellery manufacturing industry remains small. Jewellery manufacturer’s sales grew 4.1% to R5.3bn in 2017/2018. Although many initiatives have been implemented to encourage competitiveness and to increase beneficiation, growth is hampered in this highly regulated industry by the lack of new entrants, a shortage of skilled labour, challenging trading conditions and a growing and more efficient industry in other countries.


Sophisticated Technology


The jewellery manufacturing industry is becoming increasingly automated and sophisticated technology and machinery is increasingly used in the industry, including for grading of diamonds, sorting, measurement, cutting and polishing. Blockchain technology is being used to secure the diamond pipeline using tracking programmes such as Tracr, Everledger, TrustChain and Clara. The jewellery industry in South Africa also has a strong online presence, although buyers continue to prefer to shop in-store, using the internet primarily as a tool to gather information.
