Diamond Museum - Bruges


Of the five museums dedicated to diamonds (the ‘eternal’ form of carbon) across the world, the Bruges Diamond Museum is the newest, which seems somewhat surprising in a city where the art of diamond polishing goes back to the 15th century. The museum is dedicated to the art of diamond production and the history of the precious stones. You can discover the reconstructed workshops of Lodewijk van Berquem, the first diamond polisher in Bruges, as well as a replica of Margaret of York’s crown, and a display representing the sheer quantity of diamonds produced worldwide every year (using cubic zirconia, obviously not real diamonds!).
