On arrival at Shimansky Rockwell in Cape Town, guests will enjoy a welcome drink followed by an exclusive, personally guided tour. Learn about the history of diamonds in South Africa, the rock formations they were found in, view replicas of famous diamonds and learn more about their history. Guest will be able to see first-hand how the diamond polishers and craftsmen transform ethically sourced rough diamonds into beautiful stones - a process that requires precision and science.
