it was fun, but I found it hard to know where I was going around the meusium, you are told to go out to the factory a few doors down when we got there I thaugh the man on reception wasn't the nicest. when in the factory you go as you please but there was no instruction on where to go you were just told look around, I thaugh there would be a little bit more information in the factory.

This was a great experience. We were talked through the process of cutting and grading diamonds and shown this in practice. After this we were shown to a room and allowed to view a selection of diamonds through a Loupe. This is a fantastic experience and would highly recommend it.

Really Informative

Wasn’t expecting a great deal from this to be honest, but turned out to be great. We had our own private guide who showed us around the polishing and cutting rooms, explained all about the processes, let us look at diamonds through eyeglasses and so on. We thought that was that but then taken to a private room where we were then talked through how diamonds were graded in terms of clarity, colour, imperfections and cut. The guide took out a number of stones to show us, ranging in value from a few hundred pounds up to £79,000! Really fascinating and well worth the £20 it cost for all four of us. Even offered us a glass of champagne and gave us all a goody bag at the end.
