Who We Are

Prins and Prins Diamonds is one of the longest-serving family jewellers in Cape Town.They trade from Huguenot House (ca 1752), an iconic Early Cape home they acquired in 1993.

Magnificent wall paintings and an in-house water well, discovered during
restoration, make a visit worthwhile.

You can browse their showrooms without obligation, enjoy a private consultation with GIA-qualified professionals. Or ask their award-winning designers to create a unique ring according to your wishes.
Their in-house goldsmiths still make jewellery by hand.
