Company profile: Outclass Crystallized Gems, Kimberley
General business activities
Outclass Crystallized Gems is a diamond cutting and polishing company situated in Kimberley, South Africa. In the very heart of Kimberley amongst the very souls that are dear to the history of diamonds, our business model is not only based on buying and selling diamonds, but in also reviving the diamond legacy once embraced by the city of Kimberley through creating job opportunities for the fellow youth within the Northern Cape and South Africa as a whole, whilst creating unique experiences for its clients/customers.
We are a young company with big dreams. Our desire is to be one of the key players in South Africa’s diamond industry by continually working hard towards building a reputation for honesty, integrity, cutting-edge technologies, and community-mindedness.
The company is currently assisted by the Kimberley Diamond Jewellery Incubator. The role of the Incubator is to mentor, coach, service and provide the company with state-of-the-art facilities & technology in order to lead it to a position where it is able to be self-sustaining & self-sufficient; therefore enabling us to achieve our short-term goals and spurring us on towards our long-term goals.
Furthermore, Outclass Crystallized Gems receives direct support from Petra Diamonds (Mining Group) and CS Diamonds (Rough Diamond Auction/Tender House). More details are provided below.
Outclass Crystallized Gems is part of the “Young Diamantaires Program”, which is run by the World Federation of Diamond Bourses and a member of the Diamond Dealers Club of South Africa. Recently (06/10/2020), The De Beers Group announced the 5 companies selected for their Enterprise Development Program and Outclass Crystallized Gems is deeply humbled and honoured to be amongst the companies selected.
This marks a new & exciting chapter in our life as an organization, further propelling us towards our vision of building an organization that offers unique customer experiences, whilst positively contributing to its surrounding community. We greatly look forward to work with The De Beers Group & Raizcorp on this project.

Our collective goal and objective is to beneficiate the minerals locally, create employment and establish stable & consistent markets internationally for our loose polished diamonds.
Both Petra Diamonds & CS Diamonds support us with consistence rough diamond supply, finance & non-financial support (mentorship).
At the beginning of 2019, we set out to exhibit at three major international diamond jewellery shows. The JCK Las Vegas Show (biggest diamond jewellery show in the world), September Hong Kong Gem & Jewellery Fair (second biggest diamond jewellery show in the world) and VOD Dubai International Jewellery Show.
At the JCK Las Vegas Show, we launched our exclusive loose polished diamond brand “PURPOSE” and were the only company representing Africa out of approximately 2400 exhibitors.
Together with the Northern Cape Department of Economic Development & Tourism, we have committed towards exhibiting at the JCK Las Vegas Show, September Hong Kong Gem & Jewellery Fair and VOD Dubai International Jewellery Show for the next five years consecutively. This is to build our reputation and establish a firm footprint within all three market demographics mentioned above.
