Prins & Prins was founded in 1982, and has since grown into one of South Africa's premier private & family owned jewelers. Located in the authentically restored Huguenot House (circa 1752), a visit to us is more than just shopping, it is stepping back in time. While browsing our extensive and exquisite collections of diamonds, tanzanite and other gemstones, you are surrounded by original 18th century artwork showing the grandeur of this early Cape home.Enjoy a full bodied cappuccino or a glass of fine locally produced South African wine in our private courtyard, away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, while admiring your jewellery under our ancient grapevine and the African sun.From custom design, to individually hand crafted items from our very own on-site workshop, Prins & Prins offers a full service from beginning to end. Come visit the jeweler that helped set the standards for jewellery in Cape Town. Come experience our Passion for Perfection. Come and see the best that Cape Town has to offer in terms of diamonds, tanzanite, gems and jewellery.
