Ready for another exploration in Amsterdam.....? This time it's time to go see a special part of Amsterdam culture: their diamond history......:)
Amsterdam has been known internationally as the ‘City of Diamonds’ for over 425 years. In fact, the brilliant cut, which originated in Amsterdam, is also known as the ‘Amsterdam cut’. If you would like to find out all about carats, colors, clarity and cuts, and learn about some of the history of this Amsterdam craft at the same time, join us on Sunday August 17th, for our free tour at the Gassan Diamond HQ! :)
"The Amsterdam-based diamond cutting and trading company Gassan Diamonds is located in a historic diamond factory, which used to be powered by steam. Here you can watch our diamond cutters at work, while a guide tells you all about diamond cutting process. Experience the thrill of the diamond cutting and polishing process at Gassan Diamonds. See for yourself how a sparkling diamond emerges from the rough stone. Experience the excitement of over 425 years of craftsmanship and tradition. Naturally, you can also buy the internationally renowned ‘Amsterdam Cut’ as well as Gassan’s proprietary diamond cut, the Gassan 121 with 121 facets, in our shop."
