About Capetown Capital Lenders

Our History

Capetown Capital Lenders is a partnership between Capetown Diamond Corporation and Diamond Banc. The partnership was created to launch a luxury asset-based lending division to serve Atlanta and the surrounding area. Our mission is to offer clients the same professionalism, security and confidentiality of a traditional bank which allows clients to turn to their jewelry, diamonds and fine time pieces into immediate funding for their liquidity needs.

Founded in 1969 by the Marcus Family, Capetown Diamond Corporation was one of the First Companies in the United States to offer discounted new and certified pre-owned fine Swiss watches, upscale jewelry, and certified diamonds. Capetown Diamond Corporation has over 25,000 satisfied clients worldwide. They carry famous brand name time pieces including Rolex, Cartier, Patek Philippe, Omega, Breitling, Jaeger LeCoultre, Ulysse Nardin, TAG Heuer and many more. As well as well known designer jewelry such as Mikimoto, Cartier, Tiffany & Co, Bulgari, Gregg Ruth, David Yurman, Jeff Cooper, and many custom pieces!

Diamond Banc was founded by Mills Menser, a third generation jeweler. Mills also owns Buchroeders, a retail jewelry store that has been in continuous operation since 1896. Mills believes in being a true 360 degree jeweler, assisting customers with all their jewelry needs. Diamond Banc was created to help customers not only when they wished to purchase an item or get a repair, but also when they wanted to sell or get a loan on an item. Due to Mills' experience in the industry and association with Buchroeders, Diamond Banc offers unmatched purchasing power, lending expertise and overall industry resources.
