DIVA aims to foster an appreciation for diamonds, jewellery and silver in the broadest sense. We share our passion for heritage and craftsmanship and challenge you to learn as well as to develop creativity to the fullest. As a visitor, you can not only immerse yourself in the stories about and behind the objects, but also experience the passion, craftsmanship and creativity for yourself.
DIVA wants to be the hub of diamond, jewellery and silver in Flanders for the layman, enthusiast and professional, passing on the love for and knowledge of the field to the next generations. Whether you are a first-time grinder or a seasoned goldsmith/silversmith, you are always welcome to let your creativity run wild and get inspired with us.
DIVA is the (inter)national reference point for diamonds, jewellery and silver and contributes to the positioning of Antwerp with regard to these themes. DIVA's collection policy focuses on diamonds, jewellery and silver from the 15th century to the present, from Antwerp, Flanders and the Low Countries in an (inter)national context.
Accordingly, DIVA is committed to gathering knowledge about the collections and sharing this knowledge with the public to achieve a connection. Foe example, you can dive into our online collection, visit the library with more than 23,000 publications or try your hand at it in the workshop. In addition, DIVA organises activities for schools, families and non-native speakers, including tailored tours. Take a look at our education programme for this.
