A modern-day experience in historic Antwerp
DIVA. Antwerp House of Diamonds is located in the historical heart of Antwerp. In a neighbourhood that goldsmiths, jewellery and diamond dealers have called home since the sixteenth century. Antwerp has been known as the diamond capital of the world since its Golden Age. Merchants and explorers sailed up the River Scheldt, in ships laden with gems and precious metals to sell them all over Europe.
