Indulge in the Shimanski Diamond Experience Tour

Indulge in the Shimanski Diamond Experience Tour

by Shannon De Kock September 12, 2018

On a beautiful sunny Cape Town day, we set out to the Clocktower at the V&A Waterfront for a closer look at the iconic gems that made South Africa famous.

We found the Clocktower easily after following the relevant parking signs. The first impression of the store is of one that exudes luxury. Well-dressed staff greeted us at the front desk, and within minutes we had started the Diamond Experience Tour.

Through this luxury diamond experience, we discovered the unique history of the gold and diamond trade in South Africa and got to see replicas of the most famous of South African diamonds.

I don't want to give too much away but you'll learn some alarming facts, get to walk through a 'mine shaft' and watch first hand as skilled workmen create the stunning Shimanski signature pieces.

The Diamond Experience Tour ends off in the Shimansky showroom where you can view diamonds through a magnifying glass, try on any of their signature pieces and enjoy a complimentary beverage of sparkling wine, coffee or something stronger!

If you're looking to buy a diamond you'll be glad to know all Shimanski diamonds are ethically sourced and of the highest grading standard, being graded according to the American Grading System (AGS). The AGS 0–10 grading scale is easy to understand: the highest possible grade is zero, and the lowest is 10. When using the AGS Scale, the diamond Cut grade is first, then diamond Color, Clarity, and Carat Weight—in that order.

Diamonds are not all you can shop for at Shimanski, they have Shimanski perfumes for men and women and a range of jewellery as well. If you have a ring yourself, you'll be glad to know you can have it professionally cleaned. I enjoyed a free cleaning and my diamond has never sparkled so much!

The Diamond Experience Tour is completely free and can take place daily between 9am and 8pm.
