You’ll find the shop conveniently located situated within walking distance to the V&A Waterfront – a prime location to make a turn at while touring the beautifully city.
Renowned for their exquisite Cape fynbos-inspired diamond engagement ring designs, there are over two-hundred additional designs to choose from. Clients can request their own bespoke design which will be manufactured according to their individual tastes.

The romantic pink hues of morganite give an original spin on a traditional engagement ring, especially when paired with rose gold or 14kt gold.
The famous ‘Blushing Bride Diamond Engagement Ring’ from the Fynbos Collection is one of the most requested designs amongst many others which are inspired by the captivating fynbos flora unique to the Western Cape.
Careful consideration has gone into the botanical-inspired designs making sure to keep the diamond as the centre of attraction with fine metal detailing to resemble the Fynbos Flower with the option of adding petit side diamonds to amplify the engagement ring’s overall sparkle.
In addition to diamond engagement rings, Cape Diamonds offers a range of wedding bands for men and women. Wedding bands can be tailored and designed to sit comfortably alongside your engagement ring.
As a diamond wholesaler, their competitive prices on diamonds are what keeps customers coming back for more. Cape Diamonds is popular with tourists and visitors wanting a unique and exclusive souvenir to remember their trip by. Being a top supplier of engagement rings in South Africa, local first-time jewellery buyers are equally welcome when looking for a non-intimidating introduction to diamonds and how to purchase the perfect diamond ring within their budget – whether it’s a customised creation or something from their extensive range of existing exclusive collections.
Apart from the excellent service provided, Cape Diamonds’ diamond rings come with a lifetime manufacturing guarantee. Customer satisfaction is of utmost importance, which means aftersales service is part of the deal when purchasing one of their creations. All engagement ring clients are offered one complimentary polish so their diamond can be super sparkly on the ‘big day’. However, when clients choose to use their complimentary free polish is completely up to them. Thereafter, each polish will only come at a small fee.
Joel Graham is the owner of Cape Diamonds and plays an active role in the studio on a daily basis. His easy-going manner and earthy charm belie his expertise.
He was raised close to nature in a town called Hogsback in the Eastern cape. Joel completed his degree in jewellery design and manufacture at the Durban University of Technology, and went to the UK for five years to put all he learned to use.
There, he worked beside esteemed goldsmiths such as Roger Birmingham, Barbara Tipple and David Ward – and further refined his skills at Harrods’ Fine Jewellery Room. Joel has also lectured Stellenbosch University jewellery students, part time, thanks to a sponsorship by Anglo Platinum.
Joel’s knowledge of new and ancient techniques is reflected in what’s offered at Cape Diamonds, which he started in 2008 when he brought home all he learned to South Africa. He combines traditional hand-made jewellery-making techniques with hi-tech manufacturing equipment, such as 3D print technology and specialises in working in gold, white gold, platinum and palladium and in setting precious stones.
VISIT THE WORKSHOP
The workshop’s central location makes it accessible to tourists and locals alike. Situated at Victoria Junction in the heart of de Waterkant, you’ll find the welcoming jewellery studio with a functional, earthy workshop that leads into a brightly lit showroom where visitors can have one-on-one consultations with knowledgeable shop assistants and designers.
Cape Diamonds boasts one of the largest selections of certified diamonds in South Africa, and they supply to the public as well as many other fine jewellery shops. Reasonable pricing means clients often end their search for a diamond once they’ve visited the studio for a quote.
When it comes to choosing a diamond, Cape Diamonds believes in educating customers to assist them in making an informed and ethically-sound decision. An engagement ring is, after all, both a financial and emotional investment. The studio’s diamonds are all certified conflict-free and each stone comes with a unique serial number laser-etched onto it, linked to its certificate from the Gemmological Institute of America (GIA). Thanks to this GIA certification, buyers can be assured of their diamond’s quality, grade, dimensions, cut and carat.
Couples after something more artisanal than the typical engagement rings you see in the windows of jewellery chain stores would do well to try Cape Diamonds. Their large selection of creative designs include split band, solitaire, side-stone and antique-look styles, as well as trademarked collections, such as their glittering Soul Rings, otherworldly Halo Ring Collection, and popular Fynbos Collection.
The Fynbos Collection features a range of 20-plus engagement and wedding rings with organic shapes and settings inspired by flowers indigenous to the Cape’s revered floral kingdom. Each ring makes for a uniquely South African keepsake proudly handmade in Cape Town. There’s the Princess Pincushion, a six-claw setting based on the indigenous Pincushion flower in South Africa, among other fynbos-inspired designs.
But clients needn’t choose from the catalogue. Got an inspirational mood-board, jewellery concept or Instagram picture that’s more YOU? Take it to Cape Diamonds, or email it to them, and their trained staff will guide you through the process of personalising your ring – from drawing up the design with one of the goldsmiths and selecting the right precious metals and stones, to perhaps having a special message engraved on the inner band. Testimonials say couples so enjoy this experience, they go back for their wedding bands or to have matching diamond earrings made for the bride. Cape Diamonds also does ring remodelling and restoration, to make inherited pieces a more appropriate fit, or model, for the current wearer.
So if you’re in Cape Town for a romantic holiday, consider Cape Diamonds for a quality ring to symbolise your true love. While rings typically take two to three weeks to make, they can be persuaded to do a speedier turnaround for romantics who decide to get hitched on a whim.
You also don’t have to be in Cape Town to purchase from their collection or have something customised for you. Cape Diamonds accept designs online, and deliver across South Africa, including Johannesburg, Durban and Port Elizabeth.
