Thanks to this booking, you will get to know the 175-year-old diamond polishing factory in Amsterdam, the oldest diamond polishing factory in the world, which is still in operation today, on a private tour. In an approximately one-hour activity, a professional guide will accompany you throughout the tour so that you won't miss any detail of the jewellery process.

Amsterdam is known as the city of diamonds, so this experience is not to be missed. At the polishing factory you will see first-hand the origin of these precious stones and the process they must go through before someone can wear them on their accessories or crowns.

In fact, several royal houses choose to have diamonds in their crowns that come directly from this factory. It works with the famous Star of the South, the largest diamond ever found in history, and the Kohinoor, which is embedded in the crown of the late Queen Elizabeth II of England.

In addition, during the tour with your guide, he will explain how to differentiate the diamond, the carat, the cut, the clarity and the colour. These are the four main elements of the stone for its valuation. You will be able to admire some of these factory-produced diamonds on display. And with which you can have your photo taken.
