About us

Established in 1991


At the heart of Jean-Andre Jewellers is a family’s love affair with all things Jewellery. They had a vision all those years ago, and with passion, hard work and an unwavering spirit, Jean-Andre Jewellers was born.


The Joannou family travelled to South Africa from Cyprus in 1952. We started one of the first supermarket tearooms called the Market Tea Room in Witbank at that time. In 1970 the family decided to diversify and bought Maurice Jewellers from the Friedman family. Andrew grew up in both businesses alongside his brother and father. While working at the family business Andrew continued his jewellery apprenticeship in Johannesburg with Countess Manufacturing Jewellers in 1981. 


In 1991, Andrew and his wife Cathy Joannou, opened Jean-Andre Jewellers, thus igniting their passion for what would become their life’s work. Their first home for the business was at Highland Mews where they enjoyed 17 great years of business. Then in 2008 Jean Andre Jewellers moved premises to Highveld Mall where you can find them today. 

Over the past 29 years the business has grown from strength to strength, cementing itself within the jewellery industry. Jean-Andre Jewellers are highly regarded for their outstanding jewellery pieces and customer service. Their loyal customers and staff are highly valued and they have become an integral part of the family business. 

At the heart of Jean-Andre Jewellers philosophy is our unwavering desire to match the perfect piece of jewellery with our discerning customers.

Let us make your dreams come true.
