Testimonials

“Dear Sirs,

I’d like to express my thanks for your professional assistance when I bought a 1,00ct diamond for my wife.  You advised me on how to save money by going for a particular colour and clarity, while not compromising on the size of the stone.  My wife and I are very satisfied with our purchase.”

“In February of this year my fiancée and I bought a top quality diamond through your website.  We found the layout easy to follow and the response from you and your staff to be prompt and courteous. We are also thrilled with the lovely ring, designed by your wife, Olga.  I would recommend you to anyone.”

Ray, Cape Town

“I made the decision to propose to my girlfriend, but then I realised that it wouldn’t be that simple – a ring was needed! There are so many jewellers in the phone book, what was I to do? So I googled (as one does!) and came across CG Diamonds’ website.  It was a leap of faith on my part, as I knew nothing about diamonds. . . so I placed myself in Colin’s hands, and am happy to say that it was the best decision I could have made.  My girlfriend is now my future wife and is proud of her beautiful diamond ring designed by Olga.”

CG Diamonds, Thank you for a very pleasurable purchasing experience! I was pleasantly surprised to have all the guess work taken out of my hands, when you so kindly & professionally handled my rather difficult request for a diamond to replace one my wife lost!

My daughter’s engagement party was a resounding success, crowned by the beautiful diamond ring that her fiancé, Jared, purchased via your web site. Thank you for all the professional advice and helping him to choose a style of ring that will stay in fashion for years to come.

I knew nothing at all about matters like GIA diamond Certification, Colour, Cut or Clarity . . now I can use all the jargon like “The 3 Cs” with confidence, as I show off my treat to myself – a gorgeous diamond pendant of 2,50ct, no less! And I’ll be adding to my jewellery collection in the new year!

Economic times are really tough, and I was sadly not able to purchase a diamond as big as I would have liked – yet you still treated me with professionalism and went the extra mile for me & my wife!
