The Full Story
Hi, my name is Anne-Sophie
26 years old, born and raised in Antwerp (Belgium), diamond capital of the world,
where I founded my company Dielen Diamonds, as a 3rd generation female diamond trader.
Coming from a Diamond trading family and living in the diamond capital of the world Antwerp, I have the closest relationships with the largest wholesalers & cutters to curate a personalized selection of the highest quality diamonds at the fairest prices.
Who am I?
After my internship at AWDC (Antwerp World Diamond Center), graduating from HEC Business school Paris with my masters degree in my pocket (I wrote a book for my Masters thesis ‘The green diamond future’ where I went to research about diamonds for 6-8 months), I also obtained a degree from HRD (the high council of diamonds).
This eventually steered me to my passion:
being a diamond trader.
In January 2023 I moved back to Antwerp from India/Jaipur where I lived for several months to work and learn more about gemstones (emeralds, rubies, sapphires, aquamarines,...), the Indian business mentality (big diamond hub, especially for the polishing of small diamonds) and culture.
Because of my family, educational background, passion and my origins from the diamond capital of the world Antwerp, my friends (mainly abroad) but also jewelers and fashion brands started asking me for advice on specific rare diamonds and thus Dielen Diamonds was born.
My goal now is to become the point of contact for global clients (brands & jewelers) for rare diamonds (white 1.50ct+ & colored diamonds like pink, blue, yellow, ...) from my own office in the diamond club in "the diamond square mile".
