    It was very good, we had a guide to ourselves who explained to us how they have been working the diamond for years. They also let us into a room where there were some showcases with samples that could be purchased. They attended to all our needs and answered our questions. Very friendly and funny at all times. I recommend it to anyone who likes those things. The gift package they gave us was a detail. Very complete and light to be able to carry it later in the backpack without problem.

Royal Coster Diamonds Tour

Located opposite Amsterdam's iconic Rijksmuseum, the Royal Coster Diamonds jewelry and diamond polishing workshop was founded in 1840. Since then, its gems have captivated illustrious world-famous personalities such as Queen Victoria I of England, Empress Sissi of Austria and Napoleon Bonaparte himself.

At the time of your choice, we'll begin a guided tour of the Royal Coster Diamonds facilities. During the tour, which lasts about 30 minutes, you'll learn all about this company's long history and the famous people who have oohed and aahed over its brilliant diamonds.

Learn how diamonds are shaped, cut and polished, and discover how Amsterdam became known as "the city of diamonds." You'll also get to see firsthand how the esteemed goldsmiths and diamond polishers of Royal Coster Diamonds work.

We'll continue the tour in the exhibition halls, which house a large display of loose diamonds of all shapes and sizes. Among them is the patented Royal 201 diamond, deemed the most brilliant diamond in the world!

At the end of the guided tour, you'll receive a gift bag with a diamond viewing magnifying glass and a few other surprises.
