"The Diamond centre, a place to see how it's done" Central Station - Astridplein - Diamonds Tip by Pavlik_NL

  Diamonds are forever in Antwerpen
by Pavlik_NL

Diamonds are - as you already known - the hardest substance on earth. So, it might interest you to know how they cut this hardest of all materials, as it seems to be an impossible job. In several places one can witness the art of diamond-cutting, polishing and setting. One of them is the diamond-centre itself, where guided tours go through the jewelry-ateliers and - of course - end in the storehouse and shop.
