Family owned and operated

Est. 1971 | Simon’s Town, Cape Town


The world’s largest supplier of tumbled stones.

Topstones started its business in Simon’s Town way back in 1971 in a small building on four acres of land. Since then it has gradually expanded into what it is today with its buildings covering over two acres. Storage was always a problem, which necessitated buying a large separate building for this purpose 10km away.
Topstones is a family owned and run business and has always concentrated on tumbling on a large scale and can justly claim to be the world’s largest supplier of tumbled stones. Over the years the business has developed into three divisions: Manufacturing, wholesale and factory shops.


We supply other wholesalers, retailers and various South African businesses with all their stone requirements. These include rough rocks, mineral specimens, polished ornamental stones, beads, bracelets and other jewellery. We also cater for the meta-physical market supplying crystal balls, massage wands, chakra stones, books and more.

How we Work

This is our online portal for wholesale customers to shop our online catalogue and not an online store. Because of this we work a bit differently to an online retailer.


Not only do we process all South African stones, but also import from Africa, the Americas, Europe and Far East and in fact anywhere where suitable raw materials are to be found. After processing these at our factory in Simon’s Town where we employ 110 people, the majority of our stones are exported to all corners of the world.

Shop in Store

Presently we have three retail shops that offer anything and everything to do with gemstones, from inexpensive gifts and jewellery to fashionable gold and silver items and faceted stones. Our shops are at Simon’s Town (Topstones factory), the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, and the West Coast Ostrich Farm.
