When you think of buying diamonds, you think about jewellery. After all, diamonds are inextricably linked with the engagement ring. But did you know that these precious stones are also very popular with fashion designers? Just think of the diamond lingerie from Victoria’s Secret. Do you want to buy an original and exclusive gift with diamonds for yourself? DIVA will have the answer!

What is DIVA?

The DIVA is an Antwerp museum, or rather an 'experience centre', that draws on more than 500 years of Antwerp diamond history. In addition to the various exhibitions, you are also welcome to participate in workshops. During the summer months, for example, workshops are held for beginning and advanced goldsmiths.

Do you prefer to buy jewellery with diamonds instead of creating jewels with diamonds yourself? Be inspired by the latest collection that the museum recently presented to the world.

Which collection can you currently find at the DIVA?

The latest collection proudly presented by DIVA, is by Paul Volckaert. The designer based in Ghent created a line of exclusive handbags that every woman wants to have in her wardrobe. He found inspiration from the Plantin-Moretus, the historical museum named after the printing family who started a book printing business there in the 16th century.

Volckaert uses the patterns of gold leather that can be seen in the museum on his handbags. He also bought the diamonds that are set in the closures of the handbags himself.

What if you want to buy a handbag with diamonds yourself?

Each handbag is a unique piece. "The handbags perfectly reflect the quality and craftsmanship of the Antwerp diamond sector", says the proud Alderman for Diamonds Ludo Van Campenhout. The handbags are sold in the DIVA shop for a purchase price ranging from € 7,000 to € 35,000 per piece.
