Beware, our jewellery is addictive

We keep moving forward, doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths


We Have Moved!!

New premises:

JEWELLERY STUDIO (by appointment) – 1st Floor, Block 1, Atterbury Estate Office Park, 19 Frikkie De Beer St, Menlyn, Pta-East

WATCHMAKER STUDIO (walk-in)Parkview Shopping Centre, 24 Garsfontein Rd, Moreletta Park, Pta-East


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 as diamond merchants in 1967, we identified the need for a personalised jewellery design and manufacturing offering. Our vision back then was to provide our private clients with luxury jewellery of international standard ,  and since then we’ve been doing just that!

How We Do It:

We’re 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, gem stones and jewellery .  Specialist consultants and artisan goldsmiths complete the picture. You should try us out !

Caveat Emptor :  “let the buyer be aware” .  All those jewellers out there claiming to be manufacturing jewellers ,  or 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 the experience of true craftsmanship and visit our workshop to observe expert goldsmiths in action right here in Pretoria-East.

B-BBEE Status:

Bresco Diamonds implemented a Broad-Based BEE structure waaaay back in 2005 ,  with Black staff owning 26% of our business .

We’re an accredited B-BBEE Level 4 company .

Hearts of Gold:

Whilst our clients invest in jewels and gems, we believe in investing our time and resources in diamonds of another nature .  Bresco Diamonds takes great pride in sustainably supporting causes we believe make a positive impact on the future of our country .  Some of our Social Responsibility investments go to :

We care about the impact our business practices have on the environment. It isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s also good for business: Being long standing members of the Jewellery Council of South Africa (JCSA), we subscribe to the JCSA’s Code of Ethics and Conduct.

In addition, we ensure that our metal supplies are legitimately sourced and that refining processes meet international environmental standards. As a result, our precious metal master alloys are sourced from reputable suppliers like Metal Concentrators SA (Pty) Ltd and Cape Precious Metals (Pty) Ltd.  Metal Concentrators was the first in South Africa to receive dual certification (in the form of Chain of Custody and Code of Practice) from the London-based Responsible Jewellery Council, which acknowledges high levels of integrity in gold trading.

We have a zero tolerance policy towards conflict diamonds and only source diamonds from a hand full of reputable dealers who abide by the Kimberley Process  – diamonds that have been carefully selected for their ethical and environmentally responsible origins.

This means you can buy with confidence, knowing your piece of jewellery has a fair market price, and its components have been responsibly, ethically, and sustainably sourced. Your  satisfaction with your purchase is most important us: that’s how we’ve stayed in business for more than 50 years!
