Protea diamonds was established in 1966; as an independent diamond merchant, sourcing stones from the Northern Cape Province ( principally the Wolmaranstad and Kimberly areas.
They purchased rough stones directly from the mines and polished a percentage in-house before selling both rough and polished diamonds into local and international markets. A jewellery division was established in 1999 to expand the existing business.
Protea diamonds has a network of associated companies located in Israel, Australia, Belgium and the USA. Protea Diamonds (South Africa) is a primary supplier to these entities (all named Protea Diamonds).
Although diamonds are the primary trading products, other precious gemstones such as the currently fashionable tanzanite are also traded. Protea diamonds services a niche in the local market, as well as their strategic alliance partners in Israel, Australia and Antwerp, Belgium.
The company’s mission is to be a trend setting, niche leading diamond broker in South Africa supplying the international market.
