Newletter Sept 2015 COSTER DIAMONDS

175 years of craftsmanship

Coster Diamonds is the oldest diamond polishing factories in the world. Founded in 1840, Coster Diamonds has always been associated with the finest craftsmanship. And after 175 years, our craftsmen and women still produce the most beautiful diamond jewellery ever seen.

This winter, our visitors can feel how the Royals who visited us felt, learning about the fine art of diamond polishing and the 4 C’s of diamond valuation. Like the Royals before them, they will also get a chance to see the most precious diamond jewellery ever made, but with our annual winter sale with discounts up to 50% (!) they won’t have to be as rich as the royals to be able to afford the same, stunning jewellery. And with our high commission rates you might feel a little bit like royalty as well. 

Located in the heart of Amsterdam between the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, more than 400.000 people visit Coster Diamonds every year. During free-guided tours, which are available in more than 27 languages, the process of polishing a diamond is explained in detail by our expert guides. After the tour, visitors can browse the spacious showrooms where can see an extensive collection of both loose and set diamonds.

Newletter Sept 2015 intent media
Intent Media operates the world’s most powerful platform for advertising on travel commerce sites — powering ads on more than half of the world’s 20 largest online travel agency and metasearch sites. 
If you assume that a travel site converts roughly five percent of shoppers into buyers, 95 percent of the site’s visitors will not make a purchase. These shoppers are researching, exploring options and comparing prices — effectively using the site as a search engine for travel.
The good news is that these visitors can be valuable, too. Intent Media helps unlock the full revenue potential of travel sites by delivering innovative advertising products that give site visitors what they seek — comparison-shopping tools that make travel shopping easier — while delivering online marketers a huge new source of highly-qualified shoppers.

Intent Media powers these ads on sites including,, Budgetplaces, LateRooms, Orbitz, CheapTickets, Hipmunk, Hotel Club, Travelport and Travelzoo.
