One way to get a glance at some of Cape Town most glittering gems is by taking a diamond tour in the Mother City. These are some of the best:
Shimansky Diamond Experience – V&A
Located in the Clock Tower at the V&A Waterfront, the Shimansky Diamond experience takes place against one of the city’s most spectacular environments. During this guided tour, you’ll get inside insights into the mining and manufacturing of diamonds and see gorgeous examples of both traditional and custom diamond cuts.
The Diamond Works
At this city centre studio, it’s all about the cut. Watch and learn while skilled craftsmen carefully work on diamond and tanzanite pieces as well as gold and platinum jewellery. This informative and breath-taking experience is free of charge although you should book your tour in advance.
Those who love everything about diamonds are in for a treat at this Bo Kaap workshop. During your visit you’ll learn everything there is to know about diamonds, starting with the history of diamond mining in South Africa. You’ll get expert opinions on how to choose and care for diamonds as well as a demonstration on diamond cutting and polishing techniques.
Afterwards, you can browse among exquisite examples of diamond and tanzanite jewellery in the sophisticated boutique.
The Diamond Gallery
If you want to do more than just look at and learn about diamonds, book a private diamond tour at this Bo-Kaap establishment. Here you’ll be given an exclusive viewing of some of Africa’s best conflict-free diamonds. You can choose from loose stones or diamond jewellery with an expert at your side.
Whether you are visiting on holiday or you’re looking for a stone that’s as special as the one it’s intended for, you’ll find something that puts a sparkle in your eyes in the Mother City.
