Local Jeweler Heading to Antwerp For Diamonds

Somerset, New Jersey,  10/8/2017,  Dr. Peter Stavrianidis of Venus Jewelers in Somerset, NJ is leaving on for his annual trip to Antwerp, Belgium, the diamond capital of the world. Approximately 84% of the world’s rough diamonds pass through Antwerp’s diamond district making it the largest center in the world.


“In  2020 Antwerp will celebrate 500 years in the diamond industry”, stated Dr. Peter, ” I know there are other locations for diamond buying but about two thirds of the world’s diamonds are traded in Antwerp, and that’s why we go every year. There I can select the brightest diamonds for our clients and diamond inventory and save a lot of money by going directly to the diamond source.”


According to Dr. Peter,  “Some people think you can look at a piece of paper on the internet and select a diamond but there’s no way to tell if that diamond has fire, has life. I need it to say something to me. If I’m going to put my name and my reputation behind a diamond, I’m going to be certain it’s the quality for which Venus Jewelers is known. ”


Traditionally, Antwerp diamond offices are only open to diamond wholesalers. As a member of International Jewelers Organization, (IJO), Venus Jewelers can access this centuries old diamond center that few independent jewelers can.   For more information about this money back, no obligation opportunity, contact Dr. Peter at 732.247.4454.
