I thought "how interesting can it really be" but was really amazed by the service, professionalism and how interesting and unique they make it. I recommend any one of any age to go view it, small price to pay for some interesting information. Our Guild Shaheema was amazingly professional and polite

We had a personal tour with Ryan Engelbrecht. He was very entertaining and knowledgeable. There was absolutely no pressure to purchase at shop. Learned a lot about this unique cut of the diamond.
