Wrist Size

How do you measure your wrist size?

The size of your wrist is smaller than the size of your wristband: you have to add a few centimeters to the size of your wrist according to your preference:

Preference: Add to your size:
Tight 1.5cm
Medium lose 2 cm
Lose 3 cm

.

Your bracelet is most comfortable when 2½ cm larger than the size of your wrist. Measure the circumference of your wrist (right above the bone on the side of the finger) and add 2½ cm.

Example:

  • Your wrist size (measured right above the bone on your finger's side) = 16,5 cm.
  • Add 2.5 cm, according to your preference.
  • The size of your bracelet is 19 cm.

Measuring your wrist Determining your wrist size is easy with a string or tape measure. You can wrap a measuring tape around your wrist, not too tight but close around. Then record the size on the measuring tape. In the absence of a measuring tape, wrap a string in the same way around your wrist. Put a mark on the string where the string has completely surrounded your wrist. Then place the string along a ruler and set the size.

You can of course also measure a well-fitting bracelet and keep this length.

Ring Size

Peter Poussenier Bvba is a registered diamond company at AWDC (registration number: 9717). The words “diamond” and “gemstone” imply natural origin. We don't sell “synthetic,” “laboratory-grown” or “laboratory-created,” and we avoid the terms “real,” “genuine” and “authentic,” when describing such man-made products.

For more than 25 years we work together with renowned diamond grading labs as GIA, HRD and IGI.

Pricing

As you might have noticed, jewellery prices are never listed on the site. This is simply due to the ever-changing prices of precious metals on the market, as well as to the dollar fluctuations (diamonds are traded in dollars). For these reasons variations in pricings are not unusual.

In regards to our pricing, just like our jewellery, we take account of every individual's personal needs.

In this way, alloys can vary depending on the designed jewellery: platinum, yellow-,white-, red-, or rosé-gold. In turn, diamonds can also be chosen by the client, depending on the desired quality. As you can see, the client has a full control of what he or she wishes to order, from budget-friendly to the more exclusive jewelleries. Prices are, of course, also determined by the thickness, in other words, the weight of the jewellery. By all means, when comparing jewellery prices it is important that one does not compare apples and oranges, due to the extensive nature of the market.

It is also possible to bring in your own design. It must however be technically possible to produce and we must be able guarantee the same quality as we are renowned for.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any specific questions. You can do this via the site, telephone or even better, stop by our store!

You're more than welcome.

Buy your beloved piece of jewellery from us

Before deciding upon a piece of jewelry like an engagement ring it is advisable to first take a look at our wide collection online before visiting our atelier. You can select different models and add them to the info-request basket to recieve more information. Also, feel free to call us during opening hours. By doing this, we will have time to prepare your visit and eventually prepare the stones needed to make the jewellery.

It is also possible to create your own design. Your creation will handled by our goldsmith and, without any obligations, a price can be made.

We can also transform old jewellery into a modern, new piece. Inspiration can be found on our online catalogue.

Company origin and vision

After his studies, Peter Poussenier followed a rather adventurous career path, before settling down in the world of precious stones and high-end jewellery at the age of 22. The Spanish economy was booming in the early nineties, and Peter saw a chance to collaborate with a Spanish manufacturer of gold diamond jewellery. He built his own client base of jewellers in the Benelux, developing extensive product knowledge and a feeling for the market. Armed with this experience he eventually decided to start producing jewellery himself. Two years after hiring a designer from the Antwerp Aademy and experimenting with silver, he switched to gold jewellery, surrounding himself with experienced and technically formed goldsmiths.

At first, a lot of time was dedicated to creating an efficient and highly optimized production process of series of jewellery. However, this strategy has certain disadvantages, such as:

° One is forced to produce in large quantities
° The finishing done by a machine is of lower quality than finishing by hand
° Constant managing and tuning of the process are quite time consuming and stressful often at the expense of creativity ° By the repetitive nature of batch production it is humanly not enriching when one is only involved in just a small part of a creation

Focussed on high-end jewellery, atelier Peter Poussenier fills a niche market. Our work combines the demand for high quality and personal jewellery as well as authentic craftsmanship. We are specialized in the coupling of traditional knowledge with modern techniques.

Not coincidentally, in the heart of the diamond district

Image

Our ideal location in the middle of the Diamond Quarter means that we are not tied down by our stock. Our supply is only limited by the size of the market itself which represented an annual turnover of 52 billion euro and no less than 32.600 direct and indirect jobs. We are also able to maintain competitive prices, having the ability to quickly act upon changes in this market.

We are not only able to provide lower prices for our customers due to our location, but also provide the know-how that cannot be find anywhere else in the world.

° The cutting of diamonds is a true craft. Based on the long tradition of Antwerp as thé city of diamonds, it is not unusual that diamonds cut in Antwerp are far superior than diamonds cut in low wage countries.

° Over the years, we have developed strong relationships with our suppliers, allowing us to guarantee the quality and origins of the diamonds we work with. Three certification institutes; the Diamond High Council (HRD), the International Gemological Institute (IGI) and the Gemological institute of America (GIA) are responsible for handing out diamond certificates. These three insititutes have their offices in the Diamond Quarter. By working with these suppliers, we are guaranteed that stones come from conflict-free areas, applied through the Kimberley certificate.

° To ensure the highest quality, we work closely with our specialized goldsmiths, setters, engravers, polishers, etc. who provide us with valuable craftmanship.

° The handling and shipping of valuable jewellery are looked after by specialized delivery services that also have their offices in the close vicinity.

Accessibility, we are only

° 5 minutes away from Antwerp's Central Station
° 15 minutes away from the Antwerp Airport (Deurne)
° 30 minutes away from Brussels Airport and 1h15 from Charleroi (Brussels South)
° 1h15min. away from Brussels South Charleroi Airport

Who we are

Peter Poussenier is specialized in hand-made and customized diamond jewellery, ranging from timeless and classic designs to one-of-a-kind pieces. As a result of this, our gamma is endless and unlimited, everything is possible!

Besides the production of tailor-made jewellery in our atelier, we also offer loose diamonds and a range of services.

° The purchase of old gold or diamonds

° Free appraisal of diamonds: usually, the quality of a diamond can only be judged if the stone is unset. If needed, our setter is able to remove the stone from its setting for further evaluation. Also, we are able to give advice on how to recut a stone if the cut is outdated.

° We provide a safe and discrete environment for our customers. This in combination with a unique and multicultural atmosphere.

° We believe in maintaining a long-term and positive buyer-seller relationship that is partly based on a strong after-sales service.
