The Diamond Works is a one-stop, exciting experience for tourists, both young and old. Situated on the ground floor of the Metropolitan Life Centre, directly opposite the Cape Town International Convention Centre, there is convenient parking right outside the main entrance. It is completely wheelchair friendly. (A complimentary transfer service is available on request for tourists).
The Sparkling Tour: You will be greeted with a glass of bubbly and then taken on an informative tour that takes approximately twenty minutes. The tour starts with a fully operational diamond-cutting workshop, staffed by diamond cutters from previously disadvantaged communities who are all graduates from the Harry Oppenheimer Diamond Cutting School in Johannesburg. This is followed by the jewellery-manufacturing workshop where one can see the goldsmiths at work.
