Third Antwerp Diamond Fair gives access to Antwerp Diamond market

The Antwerp Diamond Bourse and Diamond Club hosted leading European and the Middle Eastern diamond buyers at its third annual Diamond Trade Fair, from January 29-31.

Over 70 local companies displayed an assortment of diamonds, gemstones and diamond jewellery at the fair. 

Antwerp is renowned as a leading diamond centre and currently almost eight out of every 10 rough diamonds, as well as five out of 10 polished diamonds, pass through the city.  

Raphael Rubin, a senior official at Antwerp World Diamond Centre said: “We hope that this fair will strengthen Antwerp as an important centre for diamonds for years to come.” 

Suzanne Eid, managing editor of Beirut based luxury publication Collection commented that, even with the tough economic backdrop, the Diamond Trade Fair is an excellent opportunity for buyers to increase their supplier sourcing. “Gauging the delegation’s reactions, I think the fair’s format is a great fit for jewellers who seek access to Antwerp’s diamond market,” Eid said.
