KlynsmithBovim was created in October 2006 due to a meeting of the minds of Designer Goldsmith Jacque Klynsmith and Restauranteur Marc Bovim. The concept of designer jewellery and gourmet events had never been merged before, and quite frankly, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Jacque and Marc will cater to all your needs in these two fields and provide you with the finest quality event and/or the most fantastic jewellery ever.
