In the 17th and 18th century, Amsterdam and London were the leaders in the diamond trade.  However, after the Second World War, the trade slowly began to grow in Antwerp, due to its well-organised import and export of stones.

If you are looking for unique and extraordinary diamond jewellery, you will certainly find them in the jewellery stores of Antwerp. Remember that 84% of diamonds extracted in the world come from Antwerp, the diamond capital. That's why Antwerp is considered the centre of the world diamond trade.

To help regulate the import and export of diamonds from Antwerp, in 1945 the government created the Diamond Office located in the heart of the Antwerp diamond quarter. Here are three things you should know about Antwerp jewellery.

Antwerp's jewellers offer high quality polished or rough diamonds

Historically, Antwerp has always been an international trading centre. The diamond industry, established in the 15th century, grew considerably, becoming over time a commercial endeavour that crossed Europe and was exported to India where the export of rough diamonds developed.

Antwerp's diamond quarter is home to the four largest diamond markets in the world. Antwerp's jewellers have made a stunning contribution to the luxury of beautiful engagement rings, bracelets, wedding rings and earrings.
