Antwerp Distributors: Your Private Diamond Vault

From the earliest days of Manhattan’s 47th Street Diamond District, Antwerp Distributors has proudly served the jewelry and diamond retail trade.


Indeed, ours is a very long tradition of total commitment and unswerving service.

Today, our diamond vault serves as the private diamond vault for thousands of retail jewelry stores across America. 

Our highly knowledgeable account executives assist retail sales professionals in selecting diamonds that will delight customers – and fit even tight budgets.

Of course, we ship our stones overnight, anywhere, anytime.  So that your customers won’t ever have to wait. 

So that they’ll quickly nestle in their fingers and look longingly at the sparkling gems you’ve readied them to receive.  

Founded in 1954

Leo Lisker founded our business in 1954, with his brother Larry at his side, and growth was steady. 

In 1960, when the brothers opened an office in Antwerp’s famed diamond district, they chose the name Antwerp Distributors.

The Lisker family tradition of quality, expertise, and integrity continues throughout the decades. 

That tradition includes generous philanthropic giving and a deep commitment to ensuring that that all of our diamonds originate from ethical, environmentally responsible sources.

Leo Lisker’s wife, Phyllis, serves today as Antwerp Distributors’ President; his brother Larry, as Executive Vice President; and his grandson Dovi, as Operations Manager.
