AT FIRST DIAMONDS OUR PHILOSOPY is that a diamond is far more than a stone; more than a fortunate combination of time and geology. Rather, it is a glittering beacon of celebration.

Our partnership with one of Tanzania’s larges Tanzanite mines enable us to supply a broad range of magnificent Tanzanite’s direct from mine to market. We apply the utmost professionalism and passion in meticulously designing and crafting bespoke jewellery pieces to be treasured forever. Celebrate life’s most cherished moments with First Diamonds. • Leading wholesaler for loose diamonds and tanzanite. • Exclusive patented diamond cuts available. • Extensive range of bespoke diamond and tanzanite jewellery. • Exclusive patented diamond jewellery ranges available. • Custom design options. • By Appointment.

My fiancé and I decided to look for a wedding band at the last minute while in South Africa. First Diamonds was recommended to us and they were able to fit us in the day before Christmas Eve on short notice. We worked with Monique who was absolutely fantastic! I had a good idea of what I was looking for and Monique was able to show me a great variety of beautiful bands that were on hand. Monique was great throughout the entire process and was very knowledgable about all of the different options. We were able to purchase and leave with the band that day! I am so happy I found out about First Diamonds, and I plan on working with them, specifically Monique again! My fiancé and I have already recommended First Diamonds to our friends and family in the States.

We've learned about First Diamonds online, and we are very pleased with the services and the product selections. The staff is professional and friendly, and they have always made themselves available on short notice to accommodate multiple visits from us. Most of all, this is a secure setting where we had all the time we needed to make choices with a peace of mind, while enjoying the hospitality of the staff. We are very happy with our experience there, and we will certainly recommend to our friends.

The salespeople at First Diamonds were professional and knowledgeable about their product. The service they provided went above and beyond. A member of our party chose a bracelet that was too big for her wrist. We were leaving SA the following morning. The staff sized the bracelet, reduced the price to reflect the gems that were not needed, and delivered the bracelet to our lodging before we left for our flight. Prices and selection were commendable.
