It was my second time visiting the Mine and Premier Diamond tours were the best. Kobus is very knowledgeable and well spoken.

Apologies for the delayed response! I didn't buy diamonds so can't comment but I know there were discounts offered. I selected a silver ring with cubic zircons from another store and have had nothing but compliments.
