Diamond Hub of the World – Surat, India
29 February 2016 / Blog
Antwerp, Belgium is probably the worlds most famous diamond city (boasting both an impressive history, and the oft-cited fact that 84% of the worlds 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. Thats because an estimated 92% of the worlds diamonds pass through this ancient port city at some point in their journey to the market (often during the polishing stage.) Its incredible to think that almost every diamond you see at your local jewelers store has probably traveled around the entire globe!
