Polishing rough diamonds is a craft practised in Amsterdam for centuries.

 

Diamond is the hardest material on earth and can only be worked with another diamond. The diamond polisher transforms rough crystals into the most magnificent gemstones.

 

During the Ambacht in Beeld Festival, one of the master polishers will give an exclusive one-to-one masterclass in which you will polish your own diamond together.

 

The Amsterdam City of Diamonds Foundation will also be present during the Ambacht in Beeld Education Days. They have been offering in-house training as diamond polishers for several years. As an apprentice diamond polisher, you go straight to work under the guidance of one of the master diamond polishers, according to the principle of ‘learning on the job’. Within a few years, you can master the trade of diamond polishing!
