Whether it be in Belgium or in China, diamonds catch everyone's eye. The Belgian Garden on exhibit in Beijing will demonstrate the Belgian art of gardening and also the charms of our country.
Diamonds from Antwerp have earned us a global reputation. Diamonds are an essential part of the province’s culture and is one of the oldest diamond centers in the world.
Known all around the globe, the diamonds are coming through Antwerp since the 15th century when Vasco de Gama created a road from India via Lisbon to Antwerp.
In the 16th century, Antwerp took back the diamonds industry from Bruges, and as a gage of the trim quality, created the “Antwerp’s polishing” label.
Antwerp never lost its famous certification and is still one of the most popular place for the diamond polishing and trading business.
