Find The Most Unique Diamond Rings In Cape Town

Fall in love with Cape Diamonds’ fynbos range and get expert advice on diamonds

Last update: 7 August

Head to Cape Diamonds to discover unique South African ring designs, such as Blushing Bride, Princess Pincushion, Disa Orchid and Stunning Strelitzia, all based on local fynbos flora. Their studio in Green Point specialises in creating bespoke, hand-finished jewellery – every engagement ring from this showroom is a work of art. 

WHERE TRADITIONAL ROOTS MEET MODERN THINKING
The fynbos range of engagement rings symbolises the spirit of Cape Diamonds itself. It’s a space where local roots and contemporary creative design come together to produce items of rare beauty.  

IN EXPERT HANDS WITH MASTER CRAFTSMAN, JOEL GRAHAM
Cape Diamonds are not new kids on the block, nor are they interested in mass-producing rings. They are designers and craftsmen who have mastered the art of creating engagement rings as special as the relationships these rings bring to the altar. 

Joel Graham is the hands and heart behind Cape Diamonds. Having grown up in Hogsback in the Eastern Cape, surrounded by indigenous forest, it’s not hard to see where Joel’s inspiration comes from, or why his designs often resemble rare and beautiful flora. 

Trained in both new and ancient jewellery techniques such as reposé, hand engraving, anticlastic raising, and pavé setting, Joel has spent the last 20 years honing and perfecting his craft. 

He brings a wealth of knowledge and skills from his days hand-manufacturing designs for Barbara Tipple, herself a record-breaking winner of four De Beers International Jewellery Design Awards. It’s no wonder Anglo Platinum recently invited Joel to lecture on platinum and handmade jewellery techniques, where he inspired fourth-year students at Stellenbosch University.

BIG DAY, BIG CHOICE
Joel and his team understand that an engagement ring is an emotional as much as a financial investment. They understand that the process of choosing a ring can seem overwhelming, especially when deciding on the design, setting, diamond cut and metal of a ring, all within a specific budget. 

This is where Joel and his team really shine, offering invaluable information and expert advice. Cape Diamonds has thousands of diamonds and cuts to choose from, but it’s their ability to match the ring setting to the couple that makes them so popular. 

If designing a ring from scratch isn’t your idea of fun, you can consult with Cape Diamonds' experienced sales team, and choose a ring from their exclusive designer ranges, which cater for all tastes and budgets. From Soul rings that offer maximum diamond visibility in a sleek, elegant setting, to classic Solitaire settings and Trilogy three-stone engagement rings, there is a ring for every hand and relationship.

HOW TO BUY A RING IN SOUTH AFRICA

  • Make sure you buy Gemological Institute of America (GIA) certified diamonds. This certifies the diamond’s clarity, colour, cut, shape and size or diamond carat. No certificate, no guarantee. Not all diamond laboratories and jewellery stores grade diamonds to the same standard. Some diamonds are overvalued with the clarity and colour being incorrectly captured on the certificate. This can make the diamond seem like a good deal when in fact it is worth less than it seems. GIA is the global standard and are consistent with grading, ensuring a safe investment.

  • Check for unique serial numbers. These are laser-engraved into the gemstone's girdle (the widest point of the circumference of the stone). Each serial number is unique to that gemstone and links the diamonds to an equally unique GIA certificate. If there is no serial number, the seller can easily supply a fake certificate. Cape Diamonds only sells GIA-certified diamonds with unique serial numbers that are nano-laser engraved onto the girdle.

  • Ask if the studio is registered with the Jewellery Council of South Africa. All reputable studios, like Cape Diamonds, will be registered with this council, as well as have an account with the GIA. Beware of studios that are not.
