    Fun, Fun, Fun
    We visited during a private tour and what an amazing surprise it was. The education, hospitality, and wow factor was absolutely above and beyond. Cindy was our representative and she absolutely hit it out of the park. A no pressure, congenial approach allowed us to view some amazing creations at our own pace and it turned out to be a ver pleasant experience. This is a well recommended experience even if you’re not in the market for jewelry.

    A wonderful experience
    My fiancé and I became engaged during our safari in Ulasaba. One problem I hadn’t found the perfect engagement ring in advance. We were recommended by Llané Langdon to visit Shimansky Jewelers in Rockwell and she helped set up an appointment. When we arrived we were greeted by Carmen and taken on a tour detailing the diamond cutting process, the ring creation process and history of Shimansky. We then went on the floor. We were shown a series of engagement rings and free diamonds. My fiancé picked her perfect style and Carmen drove across town to find the perfect fit for our preference and budget. We also picked out our wedding bands. We had to leave for the US the next day and they were able to rush the fitting. We could not be happier with our experience and recommend Shimansky at Rockwell without reservation. Matt and Mari

    Shining Stones & Stunning Smiles
    The Shimansky experience was beyond amazing. Firstly, they are normally closed on Sunday but were open to accommodate our weather related schedules changes. Nosheen greeted us with her stunning smile and deep knowledge of the South African diamond history. Then if we weren’t stunned enough, we walked into the beautiful showroom and cheers with a mimosa. Perfection. In the showroom, everyone was so friendly and helpful. Gabrielle was top tier. She assisted my husband and I in picking out matching bands. They are stunning. They gave us many options and ways to make our dream come true. We loved it. Can’t say enough good things.

    Wonderful jewelry and great service
    Great service. Beautiful jewelry. One of my best experiences buying jewelry ever. I actually looked at the diamond in the ring that I bought through a jewelers loop and could not find a flaw! I'm sure they are there but too small to see. Nosheen Ganief took care of everything. She was fantastic.

    My Angel Follows Me
    During my first visit to CapeTown we toured the Shimansky showroom and it was a great learning experience. As I looked for a pair of earrings. I came across a beautiful dragonfly Tanzanite pendant that stopped me in my tracks. The love of my life passed away in 2019 and since I have always found dragon flys in my path at the most opportune times that I spiritually thought of and spoke to my beloved. This was him making his presence known again as I traveled across the world. Thank you so very much Nosheen Ganief for showing me this beautiful Tanzanite piece that I will cherish forever.

    Diamonds in the ruff
    We went to Shimansky as a part of a Cape Town tour. We were greeted with juice and wine as we were on a guided tour of the facility. After the tour I met Cindy and Lee who were amazing sales associates. They showed me timeless african diamond jewellery. I would definitely recommend Shimansky. Ask for Cindy or Lee and they will happily assist you.

Unfortunately I was too short for time to experience the tour. I popped in without an appointment to try my luck on whether a particular ring design was in stock. Unfortunately it wasn't but Nosheen welcomed me and accompanied me to view the other rings available. She was absolutely lovely and so accomodating. As I could not stay long, I had a flight booked to return home to Australia, she took down my details, recorded my ring size and promised to send me through a quote for the ring that I had originally visited for. Nosheen kept her promise and contacted me immediately with a quote. Her customer service was nothing short of outstanding, the kind of service that doesn't go unnoticed, and the kind of service I shall never forget. She has left a beautiful impression of Shimansky Jewellers Rockwell with me. Such a pleasure to deal with every step of the way. Thank you Nosheen 🙏😊

We have been at Shimansky Rockwell with some very special wishes and tight time constraints. They managed it very well and Pule provided an extraordinary service an informed us proactively about every step. Even on weekends. We are very happy and congratulations to such a great team!

Most amazing experience, need to make a booking in advance. Staff will take you on a journey of the history of diamonds and then you enter a beautiful showroom, where you are welcomed with a drink.

Jewellery is beautiful and unique. Quality superb, great value for money.

A must see!!!

Our tour guide pretty much forced our group here without telling us beforehand exactly where we were going or what we were going to do. I wouldn't have come here if he made it clear. What followed was a 20 minute presentation about diamonds and why you should buy them trying desperately to uphold the status of the diamond as a jewelery essential... To me it felt like our guide was paid to bring us here.

I was quoted 139 USD for gold earrings. The salesman converted the rand to usd. I could not double check him as I left my phone in the bus we were in. The cost was 7900 rand 409 usd. There is no way i would have knowingly paid that amount for so little gold.

I went in thinking it would be average but i was pleasantly surprised. The tour guide was very well educated and could answer all my questions ( i asked a lot ). Very interesting facts and well worth the time if you are interesting in history. Definitely recommend the tour. Thanks to Mr Shimanskys team for teaching me some interesting facts about diamonds. Ill never look at diamonds the same way again. We have a lot to be proud of as south africans. Well done to Mr shimansky for being a pioneer in his field.
