Amsterdam Shopping Guide for Bargain Hunting

Amsterdam is a city in the Netherlands that is both well-known and little-known by people. Some say it is the sex capital of Europe and a city of freedom and tolerance, but few realize that it is also a well-preserved historic city, an art city, and even a shopping city. Various types of shopping streets, from luxury goods to street stalls, you can find everything you want here.

Gashan Diamond Factory

Not only can you experience the traditional craftsmanship of the 121-facet cutting patent and hand-cut diamonds at Gashan Diamond Factory, but you can also buy high-quality diamonds with international certifications at discounted prices. In 2013, Gashan Diamond, which won the title of the best family business in the Netherlands, broke the tradition of 57 cutting facets in 2006 and created the world's unique and officially certified 121-cut facet "Gashan 121," making it even more brilliant. Its hand-polished diamond technology has been included in the intangible cultural heritage of mankind.
