RICH PAST, GREAT PRESENT AND BRIGHT FUTURE.
Arlette and Ralph Vantyghem, the founders of Vantyghem Diamonds, emigrated to Canada in 1972. Growing up in Belgium among diamond cutters and nearby Antwerp, the diamond business was a natural fit and they soon started selling diamonds for a long established Belgian diamond manufacturer. Thanks to the great reception and support of the Canadian independent Jewellers they were soon able to start their own company and expand the business nation wide.
Today the business has expanded to include their son, Kevin Vantyghem. With his experience of growing up in the business and the completion of his GIA Diamonds Graduate courses as well as the unique "hands on experience" working in Antwerp, the diamond capital of the world, he is a great addition to the company.
The Vantyghems were definite pioneers of branded diamonds. Their idea of a branded diamond came about in the 90's and the ANTWERP IDEAL™ was launched in the Canadian market in 2000 and in the United States in 2003. The Antwerp Ideal™ is cut to exact mathematical proportions and angles, to optimize the diamond's superlative optical properties, in particular it's high refractive index and colour dispersion, to create a diamond of unequaled beauty with the perfect balance of brilliance and fire.
Vantyghem Diamonds have created a sound customer base, through developing long-term relationships, earning the trust of the clients with their integrity and honouring their commitments.
