The World Diamond Museum reached a significant milestone upon receiving a permit from the Ministry of State of the Principality of Monaco to establish itself in Monaco.
The statement reads: "The World Diamond Museum aims to be a dynamic, independent association, accessible to all, exercising its activities mainly in the Principality of Monaco. Its chief objective is to create, set up, administer, and promote a museum entirely dedicated to the theme of diamonds. Located in the Principality of Monaco, the World Diamond Museum aims to highlight the link between the prestige of the Principality and the glamour of diamonds. The Museum will allow the Monegasque, international visitors, and scholars to become aware of the world of diamonds: their extraction, manufacturing, and marketing.
The association will have an international character. It will function as an educational and cultural platform to create a bridge between Monaco and the world and allow for cultural and commercial exchanges."
The statement says further that "the association may edit and publish all types of publications, i.e., specialised magazines and books in the field of diamonds, and organise conferences, courses, training, and exhibitions around the theme of diamonds. The World Diamond Museum association's activities will also highlight the prestige of the Principality, attracting visitors and members from all countries."
