As one of the leading jewellery brands in Cape Town, Shimansky is taking wearable luxury and their passion for the Mother City to new heights. The Cape Town ring collection is designed to capture the cult of the city, the iconic Table Mountain and the vibrancy of the people.
This South African jeweller is already a firm favourite for many locals and visiting tourists, and resonates with those that have a soft spot for smaller, finer pieces of jewellery. Their jewellery showrooms are based in Greenpoint and V&A Waterfront. The brand has made a name for themselves designing, creating and refining each and every piece with timeless elegance.
‘The ring that binds us’
Shimansky is giving shoppers a chance to be a proud ambassador of Cape Town with a piece of understated handmade jewellery that evokes those special moments we treasure.
Handcrafted right here in Cape Town by founder and internationally acclaimed jeweller Yair Shimansky, this capsule Cape Town ring collection uses the finest metals and brilliant cut diamonds and a signature design has been beautifully crafted to capture the skyline of the iconic Table Mountain.
The jewellery collection is filled with precious metals and stones, and there’s a practical elegance to each piece that means they’re perfect for everyday wear. Style yours simply as a band, or show off the memento as a statement bauble on your necklace.
Creations available include a minimalist ring band with a single round-cut diamond and a slightly more intricate option that comes embedded with diamonds.
The pure metal content (585) is clearly marked on each ring band and can be crafted in rich yellow gold, rose gold, white gold, and silver. Each ring comes backed by the makers who believe South African workmanship and African sourced materials are so superior they guarantee it for years to come.

All about the Cape Town Ring monument
In May 2023, the brand unveiled its new Cape Town Ring monument that stands three metres tall, and spans an impressive three meters wide. The structure is a replica of the brand’s Cape Town Ring and is strategically positioned steps away from the Cape Town Diamond Museum and Zeitz MOCAA to offer stunning panoramic scenery.
Standing at the front angle of the sculpture, visitors are able to take in views of the majestic Table Mountain, the V&A Waterfront shoreline, and the vibrant culture and energy of the space.
‘This is our opportunity to share the magic of your Cape Town experience with loved ones, drawing them irresistibly closer to immerse themselves in the wonders that await them,’ says Yair Shimansky. ‘We need your help to ignite the flame and spread the word – let the world know that Cape Town is an experience they cannot afford to miss.’
Shimansky spearheaded this concept to invite both locals and visiting tourists of all backgrounds to experience what makes Cape Town so great.
Shimansky has set a lofty goal for itself to drive one million user shares and selfies on social media per year. Post your selfie in front of the monument and use the #CapeTownRing hashtag and we'll share it to our page.
