The Women Behind S+J

Sadie + Jean was born out of a desire to produce and be surrounded by well-made products that embody a relaxed lifestyle where simplicity and effortless living is key. The brand was established in 2019 by two like-minded individuals, Ilana Jossel and Nikki van der Westhuizen, who felt the need to create something beautiful that reflected their minimal aesthetic as well as their love for simple, considered and uncomplicated design.

Having both been born into families surrounded by strong, brave women they wanted Sadie + Jean to mirror and celebrate this. The name is a combination of Sadie, Ilana’s daughter, and Jean, Nikki’s grandmother, whose influences have shaped the brand as a whole.

This brings in the ‘old’ and the ‘new’ with their inspiration reflecting in the timeless look and feel of Sadie & Jean while still remaining relatable in our modern, everyday lives.

S+J Jewellery:

Each of our jewellery pieces has been thoughtfully created in order to achieve a timeless yet modern appeal, allowing them to be worn over and over again transcending both time and seasons.

Many of the pieces in our collection have been conceptualised by uncovering and rediscovering treasured heirlooms within our families. By adding a more contemporary spin to these much loved and timeless jewels, these pieces are still able to resonate today.

 As our core values are reflective of quality, attention to detail as well as adopting a zero waste policy, our jewellery pieces are lovingly made to order, just for you. Sadie + Jean was built on the ethos of timeless classics with every jewellery piece being made to last for many years to come, allowing you to one day pass these much treasured items on to future generations.  

All of our pieces are designed and hand made in South Africa and all of our materials and gemstones are ethically and sustainably sourced.

I wanted to let you know that Sadie + Jean is one of my favourite brands - with the most beautiful, timeless and well-made pieces!

I have the Adore Ring (I haven't taken it off since receiving it in January) which frequently gets admired (always a plus!).

I can't say enough good things - beautiful, well-made, classic - I am desperate to get my hands on more goodies!
