The owners of Diamante en Goud Plaashuiswinkel, Christo and Melinda, got married in 1978 and started their life together in the small town of Heidelberg in eastern Gauteng. In 1980 they opened this business in Heidelberg and have been running it together ever since. Decorated in an old-fashioned ‘cottage style’, Diamante en Goud Plaashuiswinkel is an exclusive jewellery manufacturer and antiques dealer with a distinctly vintage feel.
Christo is a goldsmith and diamond cutter who makes all the jewellery sold by hand, together with the help of four jewellery designers who are also based at the same site. A homely and authentic atmosphere that feels like being in an old-fashioned farmhouse welcomes visitors who come to shop for original jewellery pieces, to have jewellery repaired or valued or to browse the nostalgic gifts and antique furniture. Many visitors also drop by to enjoy coffee and homemade cakes under the trees in the quaint tea garden, or during colder months enjoy tea and scones by the fireplace inside.
In addition to the jewellery, antiques and nostalgic gifts, Diamante en Goud Plaashuiswinkel also specialise in the supply of high quality tools used for jewellery manufacture.
The very successful ‘nagmark’, (night market) is held here every 3 months and visitors can browse stalls for local crafts and delicious traditional Afrikaans food and homemade treats.
