“Located in Antwerp at the very heart of the diamond trade, following a course at HRD Antwerp really helped me to gain a more in-depth understanding of the intrinsic value of a diamond. During the course I’ve also learned how to transfer this important emotion into contemporary jewellery designs, all while developing my own style.

Following a design course at HRD Antwerp has kick-started my career as it is today.

After following the course I felt confident enough about my design skills so I’ve competed in, and actually won the HRD Awards, a jewellery design competition organised by HRD Antwerp. It was the first official and international step of my career. A great experience which instantly gave me worldwide recognition.”
