Antwerp has been home to a flourishing diamond industry for the past 500 years. Today, it has become the world's most important diamond centre, importing over 80% of the world's rough and polished diamonds before being distributed further.
The Antwerp diamond centre is located a hundred yards from the railway station. A multitude of diamond merchants trade in rough and polished diamonds worth billions of dollars. Their activities are based on tradition. Strict rules have been established which have regulated the industry for the past five centuries, giving the merchants the opportunity to put their unparalleled professional expertise at the disposal of clients from all over the world.
There are 1500 diamond firms and 250 odd diamond cutting factories located in the area, which guarantees Antwerp with a highly skilled workforce of cutters and craftsmen, renowned the world over and synonym for quality and perfection within a unique working infrastructure.
Trading activities are regulated by the industry itself in the guise of several diamond institutions, exchanges, where a merchant, if to be respected, must be a member of. The foremost of these is the Antwerp Diamond Bourse with its 1500 members, belonging to over 20 nationalities, are the guarantors on ethics, morality and integrity within the trade.
