The owners, Christo and Melinda got married in 1978 and started their live together in Heidelberg. In 1980 they opened this business, and since then they have been involved here full time. Christo did all the building work with the help of some laborers and made the furniture in the “cottage style” which they both loved.
For the first year he manufactured all the jewelry himself, but the business grew and at the moment there are two full time master gold smiths. Christo was a diamond cutter for many years and still does diamond gradings for customers daily.
At the moment there are two ladies doing jewelry design on the premises, and a lady doing the stringing of pearls and other stones. Melinda does the purchasing for the business. The snug atmosphere and informal farm style are always kept in mind with purchases. There is a busy coffee shop and tea garden on the premises. The owners are very dedicated to the “Diamante en Goud” and “Plaashuiswinkel”, and also the famous “Nagmark” which they have hosted since December 1994. The “Nagmark” attracts visitors far and wide.
