The Jewelers Touch
Jul. 2020
Prins & Prins Diamonds has a museum within a museum, which is worth visiting even if you are not a natural shiny lover. The warm reception and assistance might just entice you to walk out with a shiny item, because it’s always handcrafted to any of your desires.
A must visit when you are in my beautiful Cape Town.

Superb service
Mar. 2019 • Friends
We visited this "jewelry" centrally situated in the heart of Cape Town. The charming establishment is in the historical, authentically restored Huguenot House (circa 1752).
The welcome and service is warm, welcoming, knowledgeable, and honest.
Beautiful displays of hand crafted jewelry, diamond and other magnificent stones and rings, necklaces and earrings are on offer for reasonable prices. The museum in the basement is a memorable attraction.
If you are looking for a professional jeweler, look no further than Prins & Prins.

Wonderful swrvice
Jan. 2018 • Couples
We were in Capetown for a long weekend and visited Prins and Prins to buy a ring to replace an old one as the stone had fallen out.

The service was so warm and helpful and in a beautiful old building which made it special. We loved Leonard’s opinions and knowledge (and humour) and he helped me to find the perfect ring and for far less money than we were expecting to pay. I am absolutely delighted and this is bearing in mind I felt sad about my old ring and wasn’t especially looking forward to this process. I am now planning to have my old engagement ring repurposed into an eternity ring and there is only one place I will be going to for the stones ...

Thank you for a memorable experience. Having visited a other establishments in CT this really was the best one.

Hidden gem in Cape Town1
Dec. 2017 • Business
I am a tour guide and I often take my clients to the excellent museum that they have on the premises. The staff are always professional and very friendly. They take pride in their work and also show interest to each and every client that I bring. The premises are in an old historical house, which has loads of interesting history, beautiful displays of hand crafted jewellery, an array of diamond and tanzanite rings, necklaces and earrings. The museum in the basement tells a wonderful story of the old and new jewellery as well as the history of gold and diamonds found in South Africa. I am impressed each and every time I visit this special hidden gem in the heart of the city of Cape Town

Solitaire ordered from Paris, France
Nov. 2017 • Solo
Hi,
I went to South Africa 10 years ago. At that time I went to Prins & Prins to buy a small diamond. I was very impressed by warmyhfull of people and excellent service.
One month ago, I decided to buy a solitaire diamond for my girl friend, and I naturally thought of Prins & Prins. I had some email exchanges with Lyndsay, diamond Consultant from Prins & Prins, and we decided which diamond would fit best. 3 days later, my diamond was in France. I had then to go through a Custom clearence company to get it. Everything went smooth. The solitaire is wonderfull. And the savings is great too! it would have cost me 40% more if I had to bought it in France! Thanks again to Lindsay and Prins & Prins. Definitely recommend. Paul BELAVAL, Paris, France.

Small museum showing the history of diamonds below the shop
Oct. 2017 • Couples
With a flyer in our hotel welcome pack we decided to visit even though the workshop was not operating as it was Saturday.
Aydin showed us down to the museum cases and extensively explained the formation, source, discovery, mining and processing of precious stones and gold in South Africa. Spectacular displays including replicas of the biggest and rarest diamonds and the 1974 Miss World "Famous Gold Dress" made with krugerrands.

Well worth a visit, free to enter but you may be tempted !
