Humble Beginnings:


As our name suggests, we first entered the market as specialist diamond dealers in Pretoria, South Africa in 1967.

Great Expectations:

Soon after our market entry we identified the need for reputable jewellery manufacturing and retail offering ,  and since then we’ve been doing just that !  Our vision back then was to provide clients with products and service of international standard ,  so typically personal of a family-orientated ,  proudly South African business .

How We Do It:

Bresco Diamonds is managed and owned by a second generation of jewellery experts that believe in attention to detail ,  personal service and the value of passing on sound advice when you purchase our diamonds and jewellery .  Professional consulting & sales staff AND artisan goldsmiths complete the picture – try us out !

Caveat Emptor :  “let the buyer be aware” .  All those jewellers out there claiming to be “manufacturing jewellers” ,  “designers & manufacturers” with no physical workshop ?  Doesn’t make sense now does it ?  Beware of those crafty catchwords ,  catch phrases and slogans .  It’s only marketing speak .  Why not get in-depth experience of true craftsmanship – visit our workshop and see our expert goldsmiths in action right here in Glenfair Boulevard ,  Lynnwood Road ,  Pretoria .

Our Silver Lining:

For over 30 years ,  we have been one of a handful of businesses serving on the panels of all prominent short-term insurers ,  assessors and claims administration businesses in the greater Pretoria area .  What this means to you ,  is that Bresco Diamonds not only makes your special moments memorable ,  but we take care of our clients in those troublesome times when you have to replace sentimental and valuable jewellery .

B-BBEE Status:

Bresco Diamonds implemented a Broad-Based BEE structure waaay back in 2005 ,  with Black staff owning 26% of our business .  We’re an accredited B-BBEE level 4 company .
