The cre­ative craft of jew­ellery­mak­ing has been part of hu­mankind’s ex­is­tence for eons – we have al­ways loved to adorn our­selves with beau­ti­ful things. Civ­i­liza­tions across the world have al­ways had a rev­er­ence for jew­ellery, from the pharaohs of An­cient Egypt who were buried in tombs along­side their pre­cious jewels be­cause they did not want to part with their riches when leav­ing for the af­ter­life, to the Euro­pean mon­archs – all richly dressed in crowns with ru­bies and sap­phires, and broaches twin­kling with di­a­monds – whose por­traits hang on the walls of mu­se­ums,.

The ad­mi­ra­tion for a piece of finely crafted jew­ellery lives on to this day. Pur­chas­ing any item of jew­ellery, whether it be a neck­lace or an en­gage­ment ring, is al­ways a spe­cial oc­ca­sion, and one that should not be rushed – you want to be in love with this piece of jew­ellery for­ever.

The ex­pe­ri­ence of brows­ing through gem­stones, try­ing on finely crafted jew­ellery, and pur­chas­ing ex­quis­ite creations is taken to a new level in Cape Town.

One of the most ex­clu­sive jew­ellery cre­ators in the coun­try can be found in the his­toric Bo-kaap area of the Mother City. The Di­a­mond Gallery of­fers a per­sonal shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence to all those who are look­ing for stun­ning, unique pieces of di­a­mond and Tan­zan­ite jew­ellery. Ar­ranged by booked ap­point­ments only, shop­ping at The Di­a­mond Gallery af­fords you an ex­clu­sive ex­pe­ri­ence with the store’s knowl­edge­able ex­perts who will per­son­ally show you the dis­tinc­tive col­lec­tions of gems and de­signs.

A spe­cial fea­ture of The Di­a­mond Gal­ley is its Tan­zan­ite em­po­rium. The Di­a­mond Gallery also of­fers pri­vate guided di­a­mond tours to all vis­i­tors to give in­sight into the his­tory of di­a­monds and Tan­zan­ites. It is the only com­pany to of­fer a pri­vate ex­pe­ri­ence like this in Cape Town.

All of the stones at The Di­a­mond Gallery, both loose and set in de­signs, are con­flict­free and of the high­est qual­ity.

When pur­chas­ing a piece of jew­ellery, you want the ex­pe­ri­ence to be one of ex­clu­siv­ity. The Di­a­mond Gallery of­fers just that.
