When I first learnt of the newly unveiled Table Mountain Ring by Shimansky, I was surprised that I’d not previously coveted a delicate item of jewellery so synonymous with my mountain. Something that I could wear no matter where life and work took me, as a promise and reminder of home.
Shimansky CEO and Founder, Yair Shimansky who unveiled the Table Mountain Ring at the opulent Rockwell showroom, said that the Table Mountain Ring is more than a ring, it is a soulful connection with the majestic natural phenomenon, Table Mountain, that gives Cape Town and South Africa its special presence on the globe.
Paying homage to South Africa’s most iconic natural wonder, the Ring enables locals and visitors to become a part of that special magic every day, wherever they are.
About the Table Mountain Ring
The iconic silhouette of Table Mountain inspired the design, and the hero piece is a Table Mountain gold ring housing 27 diamonds, intricately tracing the outline of the mountain. The ring is available in silver and in all the colours of gold from white, yellow or rose in three different styles: plain, with a single diamond or with 27 diamonds.
“At Table Mountain Cableway we believe strongly in the power of teamwork and collaboration, which is why this project with an authentic SA brand like Shimansky makes so much sense to us,” said Wahida Parker, MD of Table Mountain Cableway. “Ultimately it will help us share the message of the beauty of Table Mountain with even more people. Just think what a great conversation starter this will make.”
Made from South Africa’s most precious natural treasures, gold and diamonds, visitors can view the making of the Table Mountain Ring at the Shimansky Clock Tower workshop where the master jewellers and the diamond polishers perform their magical craft.
Shimansky’s commitment to enhancing the visitor experience in South Africa saw the launch of its exclusive Diamond Experience at the Clock Tower (Waterfront) and the Rockwell Diamond Experience in Green Point. These tourism attractions offer unique insight into the 3.3-billion-year journey of a Shimansky diamond and highlight the craftsmanship inherent in every unique piece of jewellery produced by Shimansky’s master craftsmen.
Shimansky has just arrived in Cape Town from New York where he was part of an exhibition titled The Protagonist curated by Vogue Italia – celebrating the world best designers who are mindful and practice sustainability in jewellery. The Salon Art + Design New York has established an international reputation for excellence in design and unprecedented quality.
Shimansky continues to share and showcase South Africa to the globe through its expansion to the United States, with the launch of an opulent showroom on New York’s iconic 5th Avenue last year.
