The Diamond District of Antwerp throws up images of high end jewellery shops showing off the latest "bling" item,plush shops set in a beautiful area but in reality it's just a lot of rather tired looking shop frontages in a rather shady area of town...More

It was more of chance rather than proper planning that I came to this place. It was just outside the Central Station and we were staying just south of the station. Despite being the bling capital of the world some may say, the area looks...More

It was fascinating to stroll along, looking in the windows. Beautiful displays and some really unusual jewellery as well as traditional styles. I now know that natural diamonds are the ones I like :)

It is just an area full of shops selling diamonds. Sometimes the atmosphere could be a little bit heavy so it is important to walk there during daylight. The variety is amazing, so definitely if you are looking for a diamond, you will find it...More

My hotel is next to these shops selling diamonds and jewelries! I smiled and remembered that in Brussels and Ghent, items displayed at the windows of the shops are chocolates and waffles, here displayed are diamonds! I took pictures of these shops and imagined myself...More

Hi Michael. You'll for sure get what you're looking for there, whether it's individual stones or ready-made jewelry. The whole industry, including the retailers, is well regulated so you won't get sold a dud. But there are... More
