Helmut Muller

Helmut Muller was born in Germany in a small town in the Bavarian district.

He studied to be a goldsmith and did his apprenticeship with a company called Goldbauer in Germany.  In 1983 he was offered a job in Namibia and having always been interested in Africa, he decided to take up the offer.

In 1984 a company in Welkom in the Free State contacted him and offered him a job to set up their workshop.  He moved to Welkom and worked for them for 6 years.

In 1990 he decided to open his own company called 18 Carat.  In 2018 he moved to Nelspruit Mpumalanga to set up his shop in the Sonpark Shopping Centre.

Helmut custom makes and manufactures timeless pieces of jewellery to suit his customers needs.  He is also a rough diamond expert and can give advice on gemstones and diamonds to suit your lifestyle and budget.

He has a love for the African bush and started his African Collection in 2018.  All the pieces are handmade in his workshop in Sonpark Mbombela.  He personally makes each piece.  

Helmut is always available for his customers for advice and a consultation on a new or remodelled piece of jewellery.  18 Carat can revitalise an item you already own or make something completely new.

We also have a range of African inspired items to enhance your home and lifestyle, or to gift to a special someone.
