Diamant Museum – Overview
Visit the Diamant Museum in Amsterdam and explore hundreds of years of diamond history!
The Dutch capital has been the diamond capital of the world for over 400 years. Back then Sephardic Jews introduced the diamond cutting industry. There are multiple diamond factories in Amsterdam. It is well worth getting to know more about those valuable objects’ history when you are in the Netherlands.
World-famous stones like the Koh-I-Noor and the Cullinan were cut by famed Amsterdam diamond polishers from Royal Coster Diamonds and this famous diamond factory. The Diamant Museum have opened their doors to show off their treasures!
Using films, photos, jewellery, historical documents and, of course, diamonds, the Amsterdam Diamant Museum reveals the stories behind this precious gem. The museum was established with the purpose of increasing the knowledge of the diamond and its history.
It aims at being the knowledge centre of diamonds for the broader public. Thus, visitors can view diamonds in all sorts and sizes – from the smallest in the world, imperceptible to the naked eye and liable to disappear forever with a single breath of air to the largest, the Golden Jubilee at 545 carats.
One of the museum’s exhibitions, Brilliant Beauties, allows visitors to understand the making of diamonds. Meet the specialist who can transform it from a rough stone into a sparkling jewel! Also, learn how to distinguish between the real thing and an imitation.
You can also explore the collection of crowns and see real diamond polishers right next door at Royal Coster.
The museum is located right between the Rijksmuseum and the van Gogh Museum. You can perfectly combine it with a canal cruise for a great Amsterdam experience.
