Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Prins & Prins was founded in 1982, and has since grown into one of South Africa's premier private & family owned jewelers. Located in the authentically restored Huguenot House (circa 1752), a visit to us is more than just shopping, it is stepping back in time. While browsing our extensive and exquisite collections of diamonds, tanzanite and other gemstones, you are surrounded by original 18th century artwork showing the grandeur of this early Cape home.Enjoy a full bodied cappuccino or a glass of fine locally produced South African wine in our private courtyard, away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, while admiring your jewellery under our ancient grapevine and the African sun.From custom design, to individually hand crafted items from our very own on-site workshop, Prins & Prins offers a full service from beginning to end. Come visit the jeweler that helped set the standards for jewellery in Cape Town. Come experience our Passion for Perfection. Come and see the best that Cape Town has to offer in terms of diamonds, tanzanite, gems and jewellery.

Indulging in a morning of uber decadence in the heart of an urban city is something most people only dream of.... at Prins&Prins in Cape Town's City Centre, not only is the possible, it's an absolute must to include on your trip!

Diamonds, culture, history and srcumptious snacks with an wise tourguide makes this experience worth it!

Dear Fazielah

Thank you for your visit to us, and your review - we truly appreciate your kind words!

As diamonds are a girl's best friend, we always try our best to create and add an unforgettable experience where our clients can indulge in all we have to offer, when they visit us.

Having a wealth of knowledge between our four graduate GIA Gemmologists, we cherish the time we have with our clients, telling them all about our wonderful world of Diamonds, Tanzanite, Gems and Jewellery.

Our historic setting truly adds a new dimension to diamond shopping - getting away from the hustle and bustle, and noise of the city, settling down in comfortable chairs in our private offices, is an experience we are proud to offer!

If you ever want to come and indulge again, please come past - we look forward to seeing you again!

Kind regards
The Team at Prins & Prins

HI Helen

Thank you so much for your review!

We are incredibly fortunate to be able to welcome our clients to our exquisite property, Huguenot House. Built in 1752, this early Cape home was home to some of Cape Town's wealthy families, and also played a large part in our local wine industry during the 19th century.

Being privately owned has afforded us the opportunity to offer a luxurious experience, with private consultations in our spacious offices where our clients can browse to their heart's content. Our jewelers are also on permanent standby to make you that special piece of jewellery you have always dreamed of!

We look forward to welcoming you back! And as always I will make sure their is delicious complimentary cappuccino waiting....

Kind regards
The Team at Prins & Prins

A big and special occasion was set in stone(s) by the most fantastic team of special people. A very warm and welcoming setting dazzled from wall to wall by the most beautiful diamond jewelry I have ever seen! Leonard Arendt assisted me in finding and designing a ring that was "me"! It was an absolute pleasure working with him and the rest of the people at Prins & Prins! Thank you!
