5th Ave Entrance – Diamond District in NYC
About Jewelers’ Row…
Major cities all around the world have commercial centers dedicated to the wholesale diamond trade. Belgium has the Diamond District in Antwerp; India has the Bharat Diamond Bourse in Mumbai; Israel has the Diamond Exchange District in Tel Aviv; England has Hatton Garden in London; Los Angeles has the Jewelry District and Philadelphia and Chicago both have their own ‘Jewelers’ Row.’ None of these, however, can compare in size and influence to the Diamond District in NYC.
Shrouded in secrecy, the Diamond District in NYC (a.k.a. Jewelers’ Row 47th Street) sells more product in one year than Nike and Coca-Cola combined. Yet for all its selling power, “the District” can be confusing and intimidating if the buyer does not know what he (or she) is doing.
This single city block, located on 47th Street between 5th and 6th Avenue, is home to over 2500 shops and stores located on the street below and in the office buildings above.
