The 8-sided “Flanders Cut” bears the name
of the region where this gorgeous diamond
was first polished.
Flanders is the Northern Federal region
of the Kingdom of Belgium.
The capital of Flanders is Antwerp, which is
considered to be the world capital of diamonds.
More than 50% of the world’s production
of rough, polished and industrial diamonds
passes through Antwerp.
The Antwerp diamond sector has an annual
turnover of about 40 billion U.S. dollars.
