Debuting the ultimate Diamond Experience in the bush in our exquisitely curated boutique, SHARI’S. As one of the world’s most remote private showrooms for diamonds, we’ve created a one-of-a-kind shopping experience with access to top-quality diamonds, as well as our very own Cheetah Plains Signature Diamond Collection.
Starting with champagne service, guests will have a one-on-one consultation with South African gemologist and jewellery maker, a qualified New York GIA gemologist and jewellery designer. The Cheetah Plains Diamonds are part of a special collection of uniquely cut and GIA-certified loose stones that are designed into custom pieces for international delivery. Guests are provided with CAD renderings of their one-of-a-kind piece with a 3-6 week delivery, and a percentage of the proceeds from the diamond sales will be donated to the local Lezagwa Utah Community Crèche.
For ready-to-wear pieces, the Cheetah Plains Signature Diamond Jewellery Collection, created by Shari van Niekerk, is an evolving collection that embodies luxurious style and memorable moments on safari. As is the experience in the wild, her collection is bold, delicate and evokes the extraordinary. This collection features neckpieces, bangles, bracelets and earrings specially manufactured for Cheetah Plains.
All Cheetah Plains’ diamonds are ethically sourced and carefully selected for each piece of jewellery, ensuring quality GH colour, VS-SI clarity and natural round brilliant diamonds. Champagne and cognac diamond hues are also incorporated into 14k yellow and rose gold pieces to accentuate their metal settings. Pieces featuring diamonds are perfectly cut, individually calibrated and set by hand to allow for the most sparkle.
The Diamond Buying Experience includes an all-inclusive 4-night stay and a one-on-one consultation with Cheetah Plains’ gemologist and jeweller.
