T.A.E's Story


Our Mission Statement

''The Pride of Africa offering extraordinary treasures and experiences, peace & tranquillity, using business as a means to inspire and support environmental activism''

You will notice our company emblem as a Golden-eye with Africa in the middle of a Precious Gem as the pupil, this resembles the richness of Africa in all shapes and forms in particularly the magical environment and fascinating wildlife, therefore we feel it is our responsibility as human beings to ensure these areas & the wildlife survive for generations to come. With this in mind though always an uphill battle we decided to give away 10% of all Jewellery & Gem Art purchases to African conservation organisations that meet our strict ideals and best of all our customers get to choose who we support. 

 

The Original Collectible

From the earliest civilisations of ancient Egypt down to the later days of the Kingdom of Zimbabwe and the scramble for Africa our minerals have always been the most alluring attraction to man. The Egyptians mastered and brought to the world the skills of metallurgy, mining, and the crafting of jewellery using fine gemstones since then Gold, Diamonds and various coloured gemstones have always been synonymous with Africa.
