Cape Town Diamond Museum | All That Glitters

Have you ever been to the Cape Town Diamond Museum?

I met with one of my GFD Ambassadors Anna Donkin (the absolutely gorgeous Mrs. SA Finalist) today to take a walk through the venue for the CANSA Fundraiser event – Fashion, Flavour and Art – happening on the 26 July. It will be at the Shimansky showroom and workspace in the clock tower at the V&A Waterfront, which also so happens to be the home of the Cape Town Diamond Museum!

I had never even heard about it, and what a pity – the place is absolutely stunning! The high level of security is understandable when you are housing some of the most beautiful jewels, including the “My Girl” diamond and the Ralph Lauren dress and Shimansky diamond necklace Charlize Theron wore in celebration of her Oscar win for the film “Monster”.

Walking through the exquisite passages of gems and tools was incredibly inspiring and we are really looking forward to seeing a few GFD pieces in amongst the glow! I have no doubt that the showcase event is going to be nothing but shining – especially seeing as though it’s for such a meaningful cause.
