On October 11, 2016, a delegation from Atasay, the largest jewellery group in Turkey, visited HRD Antwerp as part of a networking tour to the renowned Antwerp Diamond District.
Their visit featured a presentation on the rich Antwerp diamond history by Mr. Ari Epstein, chairman of HRD Antwerp, as well as a hands-on introduction to analysing a diamond’s 4Cs, after which they examined diamonds using HRD’s high-tech D-Scope, a specialized diamond microscope.
Following these presentations, the Atasay delegation enjoyed a guided tour of the HRD Antwerp Diamond Lab before continuing their journey through the Antwerp Diamond District.
