You can see the art of diamond cutting along with a complimentary glass of a choice of wine. The famous Cullinan diamond is featured here. Could also see Tanzanite stone. This store is more of a retail outlet.

We went there as part of Cape town city tour. As we were not having plan to buy such precious jewelry and diamonds, had a good window shopping. The outlet is well laid out right in the city. The staff was very welcoming and courteous.

We did not go on a tour, but on the recommendation of our tour guide. When we arrived we had just had an unfortunate experience and Zelna was incredibly supportive and helpful before learning that we actually wanted to purchase. Then she was very helpful we we found the perfect Tanzanite ring; there was absolutely no pressure and we got an excellent discount. Nicole was also highly recommended by our guide. We were delighted with our experience!

Very high price, advise very restricted, and organization to be really improved...
Compared to the 3 other jewelry we made, it was very disappointing and much less professional.

The personal attention from the staff is what makes this a tour with a difference. Educational, interesting and fine craftsmanship of their jewellery combine to create an experience to remember!

The tour was free, as it should be. Actually a diamond & gem retail operation. However, we were greeted with sparkling wine & orange juice. Then our guide took us to various stations along the perimeter of the shop explaining the history, cutting process & grading of diamonds & tanzanite. Then you were allowed to browse the shop displays.
For a free tour taking maybe 1/2 hour it wasn't a waste of time.

A gem in the heart of Cape Town, offering an insightful educational experience with amazing staff from all walks of life. Greeted with a glass of sparkling wine and surrounded by the most beautiful pieces, what more could a girl as for? I fell in love with tanzanite and was truly impressed by the only tanzanite demonstration studio in the Southern Hemisphere. When in Cape Town, book your sparkling tour at The Diamond Works, you’ll love it!
