Just as gold travels through a journey in processes that prepare it for us to create our work, the founder Mr Gift Sihlali travelled quite a journey too, before opening up Skhosana uMsi Ka Mhlanga Gold Exchange & Jewellery Consultant.
His journey started back in 2001, when he was a part-time driver of then known as Jewellery Connection and now known as The Jeweller delivering to various jewellery stores, jewellery that the company manufactured and did repairs for. He then joined Metal Concentrators two months later as a full-time driver through a recommendation by Victor Magnes, the owner of The Jeweller. He learned a lot during that time under a great leadership by Bernard & Hillary Stern, and later on by Michael Vincer, where he became even more passionate about the jewellery industry leading to his promotion to a sales representative and sales manager only a few months later. As he gained more knowledge and experience, he saw an opportunity to share it with the people of Soweto, to also educate them further about jewellery.
He founded this company in 2016.
