Cullinan Diamond Mine

Pretoria (Tshwane), Gauteng
Museums 

Cullinan, the most glittering name in South Africa’s diamond history, is the source of many of the most renowned diamonds in the world. Two of the largest and most famous diamonds, the Cullinan I and Cullinan II set in the British Crown Jewels, were discovered in this small town. The Hollywood romance diamond, the Taylor-Burton, and the well-known Niarchos Diamond, a gift from the Greek shipping magnate to his wife, also originated from Cullinan.

This picturesque diamond mine is discovery rich and still yields some of the world’s finest gems; so why not come and explore and purchase your own piece of this extraordinary heritage. Visitors can follow the trail of what it takes to find these sparkling treasures in an underground or surface mine tour and then watch as expert cutters and polishers transform rough stones to perfect gems in the Cullinan Diamonds store. You can browse a vast range of diamond jewellery and loose gem diamonds - expertly set while you watch or simply buy them loose. All purchased items come with full certification.

The highly qualified staff are fluent in a number of languages and will take you through the finer details of the 4 c’s - Colour, Clarity, Cut and Carat Weight - ensuring that all visitors who leave the store have gained insight into the prestigious art of the diamanteer. Visitors can also take home their very own piece of this provenance by purchasing a 66 facet Cullinan Star CutTM diamond. This diamond, with its eight extra facets, celebrates the gift of the original Cullinan Diamond to King Edward VII on his 66th birthday, and is sold only at the Cullinan Diamonds store.
