About Nebü



Nebü is not just a fine jewellery brand. From its inception we have woven unadulterated purity, timeless elegance and a passion for the African wilderness into the fabric of the Nebü legacy. This legacy has been our motivation to create impactful, beautiful treasures for our customers whilst investing in the exquisite wilderness.



Our founder, Helen Viljoen, a graduate in both law and genetics, is passionate about unifying her search for justice and truth, with her love of the African bushveld and its wild elegance. Drawing on the ancient wisdom surrounding gold and silver and its timeless value, Helen and her team have created African treasures that are enduring investments for Nebü's discerning clientele. 


With Nebü's debut collection, Helen and her team endeavoured to deliver pure authenticity and fundamental investment value to customers through their bullion-grade investment jewellery, crafted from 24-karat gold and silver, a first in Africa. Each piece, sold by weight, could be objectively valued anywhere, anytime, when using the international standard gold and silver price.


Following Nebü's pioneering bullion collection of investment-grade jewellery, the collections have grown in coloured alloys of carefully curated precious metals. Now each beloved design is offered in 14K and 18K yellow, white and rose gold as well as non-tarnish silver, to suit every preference and occasion.


Each of our collections are inspired by vulnerable and endangered species, their rarity mirrored in our impactful and exclusive designs. In commitment to our legacy of everlasting and enduring value, Nebü pledges 10% of all proceeds towards environmental and endangered species conservation, specific to each collection, giving back to our source of inspiration. Nebü currently focuses on the two most vulnerable animals in illegal trade - namely the Rhino and Pangolin, as well as "re-wilding" efforts of forest restoration in sub-Saharan Africa. 


As custodians of our exquisite wilderness, we understand that it is our responsibility to take care of the natural world, for future generations. That is why we take extra care in ensuring that every piece of Nebü jewellery is carefully designed and sustainably crafted from our ethically sourced, recycled precious metals and environmentally friendly processes.






Reconnect with nature in a way that is beautiful and true whilst contributing significantly towards leaving a legacy that conserves the wilderness and its precious fauna and flora. Our focus on elegance with impact and beauty with purpose is how we try and connect our clientele to the immortal beauty of the African wilderness, but most importantly, the immortal and wild beauty in each and every individual.

What's in a name

The name, Nebü, derived from the Egyptian hieroglyph for gold by the same name, represents the timeless value of gold throughout the ages.

Ancient Egyptians believed that gold was an indestructible and heavenly metal, with its divine origin to have originated from the flesh of the deities.

The gods and the pharaohs were associated with gold, and the goddesses were often depicted kneeling on top of the Nebü hieroglyph. To this ancient civilisation, gold symbolised immortality.

Why Nebü

Nebü merges beauty, intrinsic value and sustainable luxury to bring you uniquely designed jewellery that is crafted in a carefully curated selection of precious metals.

Our timeless design pieces are sold by gram weight to give you novel pricing transparency into the inherent value of your jewellery investment.
