Amulet was founded in 1990 when Gerika Langenhoven walked into a new studio on Parliament Street in Cape Town armed with a vision and a Fine Arts degree, specializing in jewellery design, from Stellenbosch University.

Along with Elizabeth van der Merwe, Gerika set out crafting commissioned pieces of jewellery and hand-smithed silverware. They contributed to various well-received gallery exhibitions throughout the 1990s.

In 1993 Gerika received a high merit award in the prestigious De Beers Diamond Today Competition.

Unique pieces and custom mini-ranges are inspired by the organic form and beauty of nature and are created using various precious and semiprecious metals, stones, pearls, plastic and resin.

Today Gerika creates her sought-after pieces from a new studio in Hout Bay.
