I had a very interesting tour and learnt about the production process behind Shimanskys. Kelly Richards the External Sales Executive gave a very professional and informative tour of the Shimansky Museum. I would like to recommend it as a worthwhile place to visit in the V&A Waterfront.

Had a lovely time at the Shimansky Diamond Museum. We were guided by Shaheema and she did a wonderful job educating us on the history of diamonds and diamond mining in South Africa as well as promoting the Shimansky brand. Enjoyed the exquisite collection of jewelry in the shop.
