These precious stones are no longer valued simply for its glamour and durability, diamonds are not just forever, but for everything. Men and women have always been drawn to diamonds and not just for their sparkle. Since its earliest discovery, people seem to have appreciated diamond’s material properties just as much as its aesthetic charms.

Tucked away in the colourful Bo-Kaap, The Diamond Gallery gives you a one-of-a-kind experience – where visitors can swoon over precious diamond and tanzanite stones in a private tour. With roots dating back to 1966, they consider themselves a cut above the rest, clearly they have stood the test of time.
