Design your own jewellery at The Diamond Works Institute

Add some shine to your Cape Town visit when you book The Diamond Works Enhanced Sparkling Tour Experience at one of the most popular diamond facilities in Southern Africa.

The Diamond Works Institute, a true diamond and jewellery expert, has launched a new showroom, which offers curious travellers the best premium diamonds and tanzanite in the world.

What to expect on the tour

Enjoy a glass of sparkling wine and juice on arrival before your guided workshop tour begins.

To celebrate The Cullinan, South Africa’s most famous diamond, a replica is showcased along with a visual feature exhibiting the world’s most iconic historical stones.

Dreaming up your own jewellery design is made possible through an interactive design service. Once your your item has been designed, you can print a wax replica to see what it looks like before the goldsmiths get to making your dream jewel a reality.
