Mervis Brothers

Mervis Brothers is operated by Evan Mervis and his father Kenny, following a long family tradition spanning three generations.

Now situated in Johannesburg’s bustling Eastgate Mall, the Mervis Brothers story began over 80 years ago. In 1935, Morris Mervis established his first store in the heart of the Johannesburg CBD. After many years of apprenticeship in Europe, he quickly became known as Johannesburg’s premier supplier of fine jewellery and watches, with quality, customer relationships and competitive prices being his claim to fame.

Three generations later, Morris’ legacy is alive and well. At Mervis Brothers, we understand that purchasing a special piece of jewellery or a precious timepiece is a lifetime investment.

Our hands-on approach to guiding our customers is created through the experience and expertise of our in-house gemologists and skilled craftsmen. Each knowledgeable staff member is passionate about assisting our clients to find their unique piece that will be treasured forever.

We guarantee our jewellery for a full year after purchase, and all of our diamonds are accompanied by certificates of adherence to the Kimberly Process initiative.

Whether you’re looking for an engagement ring that will take her breath away, or a custom designed piece as unique as you are, we invite you to put our decades of experience to the test and let us guide you every step of the way.

Our prices are very competitive, and we aim to understand the needs of each and every customer, with the intention of exceeding their expectations every time.
