For more than 400 years, Amsterdam has been the "City of Diamonds". Several diamond sellers are housed in the AMSTERDAM DIAMOND CENTER. Besides diamonds, you can shop for jewelery, watches and silver gifts.
The Center also offers tours.
hi. It's fairly difficult to find a specific list of fair trade diamond resellers in Amsterdam. I found info but not names of shops.
I have a few suggestions how to forward your research of you are looking for such diamonds:
Contact the Dutch Diamond Trade Association:
Vereniging Beurs Voor Den Diamanthandel
1101 CD Amsterdam Z.O.
contact Fair Trade Netherlands: http://www.fairtrade.nl/631/Contact_%2526_links/
look in our Dutch Yellow Pages and contact the individual sellers:
www.goudengids.nl (put in 'diamant' in the Wie/Wat box, and 'Amsterdam' in the Waar (where) box).
Amsterdam is one of the world's most important diamond centers, where many famous diamonds were cut and polished.
The diamond trade attracts millions of tourists and buyers from around the world. Most diamond polishers as well as diamond traders give demonstrations in diamond cutting. Many diamond shops can be found in Amsterdam including Gassan Diamonds, Amsterdam Diamond Center, Van Moppes Diamonds, Stoeltie Diamonds and Coster Diamonds.
Diamonds are a girl's best friend and a guy's burden to buy. They tend to be slightly cheaper in Amsterdam and Antwerp as many are cut here.
