DIAMONDS SOUTH AFRICA

  • Clients are advised to do research relating to various types of diamonds. Please read all our diamond info as it will assist you in not overpaying for South African Diamonds.
  • Our studio is registered with The Jewellery Council of South Africa and has an account with the Gemological Institute of America (GIA).
  • All GIA-certified diamonds sold by Cape Town Diamonds contain a unique serial number laser-etched onto the girdle of the gemstone linking them to their unique certificate.
  • Diamonds with no serial numbers that you might find being sold on the internet by other dealers can have fake certificates.

The GIA certificate stipulates the diamond clarity, colour, cut, shape, and size or diamond carat. Certain combinations of these characteristics give the diamond sparkling hues of perfection, making the stone more desirable and valuable.

Amazing service! Linda helped us with our beautiful custom diamond wedding band. My wifes chosen design was something she saw on pinterest. I had my reservations becasue it seemed very detailed and tricky to create but Linda assured me that it would be done correctly, she kept me in the loop throughout the entire design process which gave me some reassurance.Finally when the ring was ready to be collected I was blown away! I excpected something beautiful but it still managed to pleasantly surprise me. The level of detail and precision was amazing.Finding a ring at great value is one thing but having the service to match is what makes Cape Diamonds stand apartThank you for the wonderful experience, I will only ever reccomend Cape Diamonds to anyone in the process of buying a ring.

My fiancé and I were helped by Linda. Our entire experience was amazing. She helped us so much with every little detail and I ended up with exactly what I wanted. I didn't even imagine that my ring would look as perfect as it does 😍. Linda also helped my fiancé with a surprise proposal for me - I really didn't see this coming. It was absolutely perfect and beautiful and they caught it on camera. Thank you so much Linda and everyone at cape diamonds. You guys are the BEST in the business 😍 ♥

Best service I have ever received. Linda was the person that helped me and I must say, she went over and beyond just supplying a ring. The effort of getting petals to decorate the place and having someone record me proposing to my new fiancé, gave us a unique memory that we will remember for the rest of our lives. I cannot show enough appreciation for how reayy everyone was to make this day special. And I truly see how passionate the staff is in making special moments like these.I would highly recommend Cape Diamonds to anyone.Thanks again Linda, I appreciate it so much.

Such amazing service and friendly people working at Cape Diamonds! I was going to give up on looking for a specific stone that I wanted but they never gave up and managed to find the perfect stone for me. Easy 5 stars.

Sometimes when you see "we'll beat any quote" on a website, it's not normally associated with a company at the prestige end of its sector, in both its people and products. However, Cape Diamonds certainly delivers the creme de la creme, on their price promise, coupled with their amazingly creative people. Jill and I have made 5 separate purchases, 4 in store and 1 via Zoom from the UK. When getting UK valuations on previous Cape Diamond purchases, you realise just how good a deal these guys put together. Qaanita, brilliant service and advice as always, not forgetting Joel's background support. CD offer a transparent experience in what is normally a dangerous purchasing process with high street jewellers, all backed with worldwide recognised GIA certification. Keep up the good work guys, Jill and Mike UK

Wow! Where do I even start! My fellow partners looking to propose please ask for Linda by name! Linda was an absolute star! Buying a diamond is a daunting task when it's your first time. Now add buying a diamond engagement ring for the love of your life on top of that! But Cape Diamonds and Linda were just amazing! I had a really tight deadline to pick an engagement ring and get it in time to do my proposal and Cape Diamonds managed to get it all done for me just in time. Linda was honest and genuine throughout the whole process, guiding me all the way. She never made a promise she didn't keep and she delivered the most beautiful ring ever. My Fiancee is soooo happy with her ring and it is absolutely perfect! Honestly, the whole experience was just fantastic. Thank you Linda! For great service, quality diamonds, honesty and guidance and an all round amazing experience, give Cape Diamonds a call. 11/10 would pick them again.

This was such a pleasant experience. I did an engagement ring completely out of the Normal and very complex. I was assisted with lots of patients, helped me put my different ideas together and had all the time in the world for me. My designer was Petro and I can’t say how great full I am to her for everything she did. The ring was perfect. Petro you are amazing. Thank you for making our moment perfect.

Had a very specific type of ring in mind, (antique-style with lots of detail). Even though it didn't appear to be the type that Cape Diamonds usually do, I was convinced that the team at CD can deliver as they seem to have really good designers. After a lot of communication with Petro, I was happy with the initial sketched/CAD design but nothing could prepare us for seeing it in person. Great detail and love the touch of the proteas on the sides. For an unconventional design as an engagemnet ring, me and my wife-to-be couldn't be happier and would like to thank you for the excellent work and great service.

After exploring almost every diamond dealer in Cape Town, Cape Diamonds presented themselves as a bespoke, supplier of choice. From Qaanita's thoughtful consideration and speedy responses, to Petro's expert insight and impeccable follow-up service, Cape Diamonds is without doubt THE premier engagement ring vendor in all of Cape Town. Thank you for the incredible, seamless service and perfect selection! Cannot wait to choose wedding rings.

My Fiancè purchased my engagement ring from Cape Diamonds, he had nothing short of the best service and constant updates on the rings progress. When he proposed in the Maldives, I didn't think those views could get better.....and then it did!! Its my dream ring and has made me the happiest traveler.

I recently decided to ask my partner to get engaged but had not heard very good things regarding the purchasing of a ring. I will say that for myself this process was the complete opposite as I received amazing service and quality from Cape Diamonds. The ring was beautiful and very cost effective. The person whom assisted me, Linda Rayne, was an absolute pleasure and only provided the highest level of service. Very happy customer!

Excellent service! I had a rough idea of what I wanted but with very limited knowledge I spoke to Linda who guided me through the process and helped me make the right decision. Not only was she very knowledgeable but just as helpful. During the process I was constantly kept up to date with the progress and the timeline they committed to was spot-on. Not only was the sales and manufacturing process a great experience but so too the after sales experience. I had to resize the ring and again their timeline was accurate, I was kept up to date and was assisted by friendly and helpful staff. I can be a difficult customer but these guys make things effortless. Highly recommended and I will definitely be back.

Wow where do I begin.. I walked into Cape Diamonds with a very basic idea of what I had in mind or my now fiancé's engagement ring. After sitting down with Linda she help me understand that the only limitations for creating a beautiful engagement ring was my own mind. Some may think the cost can be a limitation as well but Linda and her team at Cape Diamonds are willing to take your budget, whatever it may be, and create something out of this world and that's exactly what they did for me. Linda your professionalism and thoughtful helped me so much and I am forever grateful for your part in creating the amazing piece that I had the honour in presenting to my (then girlfriend) on bended knee. Thank you Linda for everything and I am certain that I will see you when it's time to create those wedding bands!

This is a long over due post (sorry Petro, better late then never haha). I would recommend Cape Diamonds OVER AND OVER AGAIN!! Petro assisted me with the perfect custom made ring, and all i can saw is WOW, I was taken back by the detail and craftmanship of the ring. Their aftersales are brilliant as well, my fiance and I recently took the ring for a polish and it looks as good as the first time I saw it. Thank you again Petro for creating such a beautiful ring, my fiance absolutly loves it.
