Diamond Hub of the World - Surat, India - Heart In Diamond

Heart In Diamond

Antwerp, Belgium is probably the world’s most famous diamond city (boasting both an impressive history, and the oft-cited fact that 84% of the world’s rough diamonds pass through its “square mile” district.) Surat, India, however, holds the true title (not to mention the unofficial Root Adminname) of Diamond hub of the world.  That’s because an estimated 92% of the world’s diamonds pass through this ancient port city at some point in their journey to the market (often during the polishing stage.)  It’s incredible to think that almost every diamond you see at your local jeweler’s store has probably traveled around the entire globe!
