  • Very interesting guided tour through the history of diamonds in the Rockwell, Green Point. Then studs at a good price great back, I love you and I'd like more of it. Thanks for the good advice.

  • After a visit last week. It is a very small museum with a personal guided tour. A smaller museum than I expected. Clean rooms but if you like the history of diamonds you maybe like it.  more »
  • The exhibition is connected to a jewelry store. The lead - in our case by Tarryn - was entertaining and informative. Who would like to learn about the biggest diamonds which 'big hole world' in Kimberley, is right here. Appointment required!
