During a tour of the Shimansky Diamond Experience, at the Cape Town Diamond Museum, you will witness the unfolding of an epic story dating back over 3 billion years, and from deep within the layers of the earth. About 2 million years before the dinosaurs even roamed the planet, the precious gems that we wear so proudly, were already formed. Can you believe that?
Come and travel back in time to the 1870s when the diamond rush of Kimberley took place, and experience what it was like to set up camp in the Big Hole in the ground. All the drama and intrigue of the early diamond miners rivals the most spectacular soap opera imaginable today – get to know all the players in the greatest show on earth at the time and we will bet you even recognise some of the names today.
You are welcome to book an appointment to visit our Shimansky Showroom at the Clock Tower of the famous V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, to take this tour and enjoy our showroom hospitality. You can even see life-size replicas of some of the most famous diamonds of all time, like the Hope Diamond, The Taylor Burton Diamond and the Star of Africa Diamond, as well as the actual dress and necklace worn by Charlize Theron to the party after she won her Oscar for Monster in 2004.
Come and get inspired around unique jewelry gifting for yourself and your loved ones, including exclusive mementos from your travels to Africa and other rare finds.
The tour operates 7 days a week, from 09:00am to 09:00pm and the tour takes around 45 mins to get all the way through.
We look forward to welcoming you to our showroom.
