Diamond and Tanzanite jewellery remains the top choice with tourists, while gems like morganite, aquamarine, London blue topaz, Swiss blue topaz, garnet, rhodalite, amethyst, peridot, citrine, tourmaline, emerald, ruby and sapphire continue to dazzle the African jewellery industry. Our extensive range of styling can be ordered in combination with most stones.
