Kirstenbosch Gardens in Cape Town is one of my favourite retreats , with it's lush botanical gardens, plush lawns , gorgeous mountain backdrops, chilly romantic mists and cosy restaurant whats not to love?

It is hard to believe that this year Kirstenbosch Gardens celebrates it 100th year Anniversary, quite an accomplishment.

To mark the celebration of this milestone, Kirstenbosch are hosting the Grande Finale of the Centenary Year: an auction of a truly unique collection of fine jewellery designed especially for the event and inspired by aspects of flora and fauna found at Kirstenbosch.

Funds raised at the auction will be going towards educational projects that SANBI and BotSoc present, the collection is ‘one of a kind’ and bound to be envied and coveted by those who miss out.

Here is a sneak peek at these amazing designs ...

'Entitled “Kirstenbosch Crown Jewels” Centenary Jewellery Collection, the concept is based on the premise that every kingdom should have its own crown jewels and Kirstenbosch – as the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom - is no exception. Its centenary year is the most fitting moment in its history to reveal these beautiful treasures.' - Hippo Communications

Happy Birthday Kirstenbosch and here's to many more.
