DIAMOND MUSEUM AMSTERDAM
LEARN ABOUT 400 YEARS OF DIAMOND HISTORY
A visit to the Diamond Museum Amsterdam sends you to a journey that starts 200 kilometres below the surface of the earth’s crust. There you will learn how diamonds are formed through a process of billions of years to their final shape we all know and love. But it doesn’t stop there because at our museum you can see actual diamond cutters and goldsmiths turning these precious stones into the most beautiful jewelry.
We are located in the heart of Amsterdam next to the famous Museum Square between the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum.
We are proud to offer a Basic Diamond Course. During this course we will first show you around the Coster Diamonds and Diamond Museum premises to show you about the fascinating world of diamonds. After this tour our Master Diamond Cutter will teach you the basics of cutting and polishing a diamond. Then we will give you a free diamond to cut and polish yourself. After this workshop and a coffee break we will teach you about the 4 C’s and you will have a chance to see more different types and cuts of diamonds.
The workshop costs €475,- and comes with a free diamond and an authentic Diamond Certificate as proof of participation.
Note: This workshop is set up as a fun way to get to know the art diamond cutting.
It is in not intended as an official educational program.
At the Diamond Museum we have a very rich permanent collection consisting of world famous pieces, such as the Katana, the Rembrandt Diamond and of course The Ape Skull.
Take a look at some of our collection here, but always remember, no image comes close to the real thing.
