Antwerp’s Most Brilliant is made up of a selection of the most qualitative and reliable jewellers in Antwerp. They live up to Antwerp’s reputation as a diamond world capital.
A jeweller has to meet 30 strict quality requirements to obtain the Antwerp’s Most Brilliant label. The certified jewellers meet the highest standards in terms of sustainability, safety, ethics, transparency, service and company stability. Naturally they also comply with Belgian economic, social and tax legislation. In short: these jewellers really deserve this certification.
An Antwerp jeweller can only obtain certification after an independent audit by Kiwa, an accredited audit and inspection organisation, which visits every jeweller annually to check for compliance with 30 strict criteria. Kiwa draws up a binding report after its audit. The City of Antwerp and the Antwerp World Diamond Centre will only grant the certificate if the jeweller obtains an excellent score for each of the criteria. Moreover the label is controlled by the professional jewellers’ federation Ars Nobilis and the Federal Public Service Economy.

The Diamond Pavilion is dedicated entirely to the gemstone with the most sparkle.
Here in this unique location, next to the MAS, you can admire masterpieces from DIVA’s collection, thanks to the support of Umicore.
A visit behind the scenes gives you an intimate glimpse into a diamond cutting shop and a diamond exchange - places an outsider never normally gets to see. Visits are possible for groups of up to 20 people.
Your guide will help you experience the heyday, downfall and resurrection of Antwerp’s diamond industry in the 19th century. Via the Central Station you’ll walk to the Diamond Square Mile – the home of diamond workers, jewellers and diamond merchants. In the diamond district bust merchants hurry through the streets – always on the way to their next transaction.
Antwerp is a vibrant city. And all those residents and visitors who bring so much life to the city also require a lot of parking for their cars. In order to give everyone an equal chance at a parking spot, there is paid parking in many places throughout Antwerp.
Time flies in Antwerp. Spend yours wisely and buy your Antwerp City Card.
Antwerp is a pocket-sized city. Many of the attractions are within walking or biking distance of each other. Another way of getting around the city is on the trams and buses of De Lijn. Tip: buy your tram or bus ticket in a point of pre-sale (newsagent’s, supermarket, the vending machines at the various stops or in the visitor centres of Visit Antwerp), where tickets are cheaper.
