Shimansky Tip of Africa

Treat yourself by investing in diamonds (or Tanzanite)

Gorgeous gems to complement your mood and your budget

“I buy my own diamond, and I buy my own rings,” sang Destiny’s Child in Independent Women 20 years ago. More and more, women are buying themselves and each other fine jewellery.

It’s not retail therapy. It’s a smart way to celebrate yourself or the women in your life: The right precious stone or metal can be rewarding because of the symbolism, and they are also a worthy investment. Best of all, at Shimansky, the world-renowned jewellery designer, they can also be affordable.
