Manufacture of Jewellery and Related Articles in South Africa 2023: Growing Appreciation for Local Artisans and Craftsmanship

Dublin, Oct. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Manufacture of Jewellery and Related Articles in South Africa 2023" report has been added to's offering.

South Africa is a significant producer of gold, diamonds and platinum. Despite the country's wealth of resources, the jewellery manufacturing industry remains small and South Africa has a long history of failing to beneficiate and add value to its raw minerals. Jewellery manufacture and retail sales decreased marginally in 2022, but strong revenue growth is expected in 2023. Although many initiatives have been implemented to encourage competitiveness and to increase beneficiation, growth in this highly regulated industry is hampered by the lack of new entrants, a shortage of skilled labour and challenging trading conditions.

Key Trends

Jewellery demand and sales fluctuate due to various factors such as economic conditions, global market trends, consumer preferences and exchange rates. There is growing demand for sustainably and ethically-sourced materials and traceability and transparency throughout the supply chain. Customers are seeking unique and personalised jewellery pieces and there is increased jewellery spending by fewer but more affluent buyers. There is a growing appreciation for local artisans and craftsmanship.


While Africa is rich in natural resources, the continent has historically been known for raw material extraction and exports. However, there has been a shift towards value addition and local jewellery manufacturing in recent years. Countries such as South Africa, Botswana, Namibia and Tanzania have established jewellery manufacturing hubs and have attracted investment in this sector. There are many artisanal and small-scale miners on the continent that contribute to the jewellery supply chain. There is growing recognition of African jewellery for its quality, craftsmanship, and unique designs. Jewellery exports rose in 2022, but remain relatively small.
