How It All Started
At the age of 15, Arthur Langerman started his training in a diamond-cutting workshop in Antwerp, Belgium, where he learned about the various stages of diamond production. After several years of apprenticeship, he set up his own business and became, in turn, a diamond manufacturer.
The natural color diamond has always been Arthur Langerman’s true passion.
He was drawn to their subtlety and infinite chromatic variety, and in parallel with his classic training as a diamond merchant, he specialized in the extremely skilled art of cutting these particular stones. "People tried to discourage me from dealing with these strange—and this was the perception at the time—worthless stones. But I couldn't let them go," he recalls.
A Passion Turned into a Successful Business
Arthur became a pioneer in the field and has devoted much effort to educating traders and the general public about the beauty and value of natural color diamonds. For over 50 years now, the gentleman known as the "Colorman" of the diamond has worked tirelessly to build a collection, encompassing tens of thousands of natural color diamonds of all hues, qualities, shapes and sizes. His private collection is regularly exhibited at the most prestigious venues and museums, such as the exhibition "Carat, Couleur & Création" at the Cinquantenaire Museum in Brussels in 1991, and the "Diamanti" exhibition in Rome in 2001. Langerman Diamonds owns the largest stock of natural color diamonds in the world.
Although this particular passion placed him, for many years, on the fringes of the diamond trade, he is today recognized as one of the world’s leading specialists in the field, and is considered by his colleagues as well as by the world’s leading jewelers as the reference on natural color diamonds. Examples of clients who trust his expertise and the quality of his services for numerous years are Van Cleef & Arpels, Boodles & Dunthorne, and Louis Vuitton.
Arthur Langerman is a member of the three Antwerp Diamond exchanges, and is an Expert for the Belgian Royal Family.
