Experience the fascinating world of diamonds like you’ve never seen it before. Shimansky Jewellers offers visitors three incredible prime showroom locations at which they can explore the remarkable 3.3 billion-year-long journey of a diamond from mine to finger.
The Shimansky Rockwell Diamond Experience
The Shimansky Rockwell Diamond Experience is the ultimate interactive showcase of the work of one of the world’s most acclaimed diamond and jewellery brands. At this prestige location, groups can experience the captivating journey of the creation of world-class Shimansky designer diamond jewellery and learn about the cutting-edge techniques employed by the iconic Shimansky brand in creating sparkling and innovative jewellery pieces with diamonds and tanzanite as their focal point, in a functioning, state-of-the-art jewellery workshop.
The Shimansky Rockwell Diamond Experience is also home to the Secret Diamond Chamber. Hidden behind a disguised entrance and sanctuary to the secrets of the world’s most precious diamonds, the Secret Diamond Chamber is the most exclusive – and elusive – part of the Shimansky Rockwell Diamond Experience. Inside, small groups and VIP gatherings can experience the story behind each Shimansky diamond. Diamond mining equipment evokes the visceral process of delivering the stones from the depths of the earth and custom apparatus helps the expert host illustrate how Shimansky artisans shape and shine diamonds to craft them into the brand’s world-famous cuts and designs. Feel rough diamond replicas, be seduced by shaped stones and experience the passion at the heart of every Shimansky creation.
Located in the established Rockwell Hotel on the corner of Prestwich and Alfred Street in De Waterkant, Green Point, the Shimansky Rockwell Diamond Experience operates 7 days a week, from 9am to 7pm. Booking for tours and large groups are essential, via phone on +27 21 440 5277 and at www.shimansky.com. To book a tour of The Shimansky Rockwell Diamond Experience, click here.
