Diamonds have been a big part of my life since I was a child growing up in Antwerp, Belgium. I come from a large family of diamantaires and have spent much of my time in the Antwerp diamond market where I gained my initial training in the field. Diamonds remained an obsession of mine, and so I sought to learn everything I could about them. I completed my gemmology degree in Antwerp at one of the most renowned institutes in the world. With my vast experience and knowledge of the trade, I made my way into the Toronto Diamond district where I founded Aarkish Diamonds Inc. in the year 2000. At Aarkish Diamonds, we take pride in creating unique, custom jewelry for our clients in the GTA and across the world.
