About this event

If ever there was a South African success story, it is the tale of Shimansky.

Yair Shimansky is an Angel Investor in startups in the Mobile sector and the Internet with vast experience in the Jewellery and Diamond trade from retail, Wholesale to Manufacturing. 

What began like many other businesses as a small flea market stall on the Durban beachfront has quickly matured into the sparkling star of the nation’s jewellery industry and the go-to choice for diamond and tanzanite creations that glitter with elegant artistry.

Today, the brand has lavish retail stores in main centres around the country as well as a stately showroom at the V&A Waterfront and its own manufacturing workshop and diamond cutting factory.

Charlize Theron wore a Shimansky diamond pendant to the celebratory event for her Monster Oscar win.

Christina Aguilera donned a gorgeous pair of chandelier earrings during a performance at a benefit banquet in Johannesburg.

Tip: Ask for the full free Shimansky Diamond Experience Tour, which includes a visit to the on-site Cape Town Diamond Museum, where you can learn about the history of this enchanting gem, see life-size replicas of the world’s most famous stones and more.
