Gassan Diamond

We took boat through the canal to Gassan Diamond. We can see the old structure but still usable along the way from the boat. An explanation in Bahasa Indonesia make it more clearly about these canal and city. It took about 45 minutes before we arrive at Gassan.

 

Amsterdam has been known internationally as the ‘City of Diamonds’ for over 425 years. In fact, the brilliant cut, which originated in Amsterdam, is also known as the ‘Amsterdam cut’.

The Amsterdam-based diamond cutting and trading company Gassan Diamonds is located in a historic diamond factory, which used to be powered by steam.

Here we can watch diamond cutters at work, while a guide tells us all about diamond cutting process and experience the thrill of the diamond cutting and polishing process at Gassan Diamonds. We showed how a sparkling diamond emerges from the rough stone.

And of course some of our friends bought it! awesome!
