The vast majority of the world diamond trade goes through Antwerp, which is widely known for its high quality cleaving, cutting, setting, certification and trading of diamonds based on widely acknowledged trustworthiness, knowledge and expertise. 'Antwerp Cut' and 'Antwerp Quality' are therefore recognised worldwide as hallmarks of quality.
