Certified Antwerp Diamond Broker


Antwerp As A Diamond Hub

Antwerp is one of the great trading cities of Europe and has a long and illustrious history of trading diamonds. The first diamond cutters guild was setup in Antwerp in 1584 and since that point Antwerp has grown to become the worlds destination for diamonds. Currently 85% of the worlds uncut diamonds pass through Antwerp and it's home to the second largest port in Europe.

Richard James as a Diamond Broker

Richard from Richard James Jeweller has a direct trading relationship with a number of Antwerp Diamond brokers and travels regularly to Antwerp for the sole purpose of sourcing diamonds.

This offers a number of distinct advantages to our clients and customers. Namely that if you purchase diamond jewellery or even a loose diamond from our Antwerp collection you benefit from:-

  • Competitively priced - as we deal directly from the source of cut diamonds, fewer brokers, traders and dealers are involved in the process, allowing us to pass the cost saving on to you.
  • Guaranteed free from conflict - all the diamonds that we source are traceable to origin to ensure that they are guaranteed conflict free and are ethically sourced.
  • Quality - Richard can provide registered valuations as such Richard hand selects the diamonds that are brought back to New Zealand, guaranteeing that only diamonds displaying excellent clarity, cut and brilliance are selected for import home.

In addition to hand selecting a range diamonds for use in our boutique and bespoke jewellery, Richard offers a brokerage service sourcing diamonds direct to our customers and clients.

If you have a special piece of jewellery in mind and require a specific type or clarity of diamond to be set - then please don't hesitate to let us know. Richard can negotiate and supply a single diamond or multiple diamonds for any creation you have in mind.
