With a passion for exquisite Jewellery, Roma Jewellers was founded in 1992 and run from home by Michelle Rodrigues. In 1993 the family moved to Walvis Bay in Namibia. By 1995 two Roma Gioielli stores had been opened. One in Walvis Bay and one in Swakopmund. Identifying a need in the jewellery market in Namibia, Michelle’s husband David joined the company and a wholesale division supplying the entire Namibian jewellery industry was established. Exquisite designs were sourced from Italy, London, Spain Turkey and the East. On returning to South Africa in 1998, while the stores in Namibia remained operational, the focus was on growing the wholesale division in South Africa. In 2000 David and Michelle bought Eastern Pearl jewellers in Menlyn Retail Park and three months later Roma Gioielli Jewellers opened in the new Woodlands Boulevard Mall in Pretoria. In 2007 the retail Roma Gioielli Jewellers and the wholesale division Roma Gold were separated to run independently, with Michelle managing the retail and David the wholesale. At this time Roland Rodrigues joined Michelle in the stores. Today Roma Jewellers is a small family run business run by Michelle and Roland. Roland’s wife Deirdre, a De Beers award winning goldsmith joined the team in 2008. Each store has a workshop with designs and repairs done on site. Three qualified watch technicians are on site to do battery changes and services on watches. Two pearl stingers are on site at the Grove doing stringing for a number of local Jewellers. Not only do we offer an extensive range of Diamond, gold, silver and pearl Jewellery, but we also partner with luxury watch brands Tag Heuer, Frederique Constant, Raymond Weil, Victorinox, Michel Herbelin, Gaga, Bulova, Rotary, Metal CH, Seiko, Citizen and Titan.
