- 3 Jabotinsky, Ramat Gan
The Israel Diamond Exchange District is situated at the heart of the bustling business center of Ramat Gan – a Tel Aviv suburb just across the Ayalon highway.
Comprised of four large buildings interconnected via special protected bridges and two main commercial halls for rough and polished diamonds, equipped with the most sophisticated technology devices and computer systems, it is the largest diamond exchange in the world.
It has more than 2,800 businesses and specialists working in this huge 80,000 square meter complex, approximately 1,000 offices and other business services.
Jews and diamonds have a long joint history, but it was only in 1937 that the first diamond polishing plant was established in Israel in order to facilitate the rehabilitation of Dutch and Belgian Jews that fled from Nazi Europe. That first plant ultimately paved the way to Israel being one of the major diamond centers worldwide.
