|SOCHI Jason Smith Wizards Jersey , Feb. 7 (Xinhua) -- The ceremonies producer Konstantin Ernst hoped that the upcoming opening ceremony of the Sochi Winter Olympic Games Friday night would carry the name of the country in an artistic and metaphorical way.

"You know how people say that the best way to try to understand something is to try to explain it to others, so when we prepared the ceremony we made a mental journey back into the history of Russia Gilbert Arenas Wizards Jersey , bearing in mind that we would be working for billions of viewers across the globe and we want them to experience this love of Russia; we want to carry a very strong emotional message for this unprecedented international audience," said Ernst Chris McCullough Wizards Jersey , also the director general of Channel One Russia.
Ernst noted one of the best parts of the London Olympics opening ceremony was the video about Queen Elizabeth appearing to jump out of an aeroplane and he ensured that the ceremonies team in Sochi would also give the audience a surprise.
"I hope that we will have a surprise for you but we are not going to feature any topics that will be only interesting for Russians. We are not going to burden our foreign spectators with that."
As Russia has a very long and vivid history, Ernst chose the most distinguished Russian cultural elements to be shown in the opening ceremony.
"We wanted to show the main achievements of Russia. We may not boast pop bands that would be famous all over the world Bradley Beal Wizards Jersey , but definitely we have something to boast in classical music, in arts Wes Unseld Women's Jersey , in painting, etc."
"I'm sure you will hear a lot of beautiful music; you will see a small Tim Frazier Women's Jersey , perfect ballet show. It will be performed by the best ballet dancers of Russia."

BRUSSELS， July 17 (Xinhua) -- From engagement rings to extravagant jewelry， the Diamond District in the northern Belgian city of Antwerp is a top destination for diamond shopping in Europe.
Rome wasn't built in one day. What makes Antwerp the city of diamonds? Due to its tradition of craftsmanship， the city is acknowledged throughout the world as the trademark for diamond excellence.
"Nowadays people are buying things from wholesale.. We still make everything handmade，" Mike Rombout， owner of Rudiam handmade Jewels company， told Xinhua.
Rombout inherited the company from his father， and the company represents two generations of jeweller-diamond dealers and has been at the heart of the Antwerp diamond center for more than 35 years.
The philosophy of the company is simple -- personal approach and everything has to be handmade， of supreme quality and tailored to the clients' needs， Rombout said.
He said that from drawing to ring-making， everything starts with the metal. "We make what the customers have asked for. We make drawing together with the customer， we choose the stone and discuss about the budget，" he said.
At Rombout's boutique， clients can choose the model they like from the existing collections， which they can adjust according to their needs， or they can come by with the idea they already have.
However， the sharp competition on the diamond market is also putting pressure on companies who remained true to its values and purely handmade work. Some enterprises introduced machines to their production， so they are able to produce higher quantity for cheaper prices.
Rombout said in difficult times he would prefer to shut down the company other than start cheating on material or the way of production to stay afloat.
The Rombouts' business is one of 2，300 companies operating in the diamond sector.
Some 80 percent of diamond trade in the world is through Antwerp. The city is also the only city to have four diamond exchanges out of 30 in the world， and is the place for 84 percent of the global trade in rough diamonds and 50 percent of the trade in polished diamonds.
The Antwerp World Diamond Centre (AWDC) officially represents and coordinates the Antwerp diamond sector. It streamline the vast import and export flow of diamonds in and out of Antwerp.
"A diamond is always determined by its four C's， four characteristics. First you have the weight， one carat is 0.2 grams， then you have the color， the clarity and the cut. For the cut you have different shapes， but you also look at how well the polisher did his job，" Barbara Descheemaecker， from the Antwerp World diamond Centre (AWDC)， told Xinhua.
To achieve the final shape， diamond has to go from rough stone through polishing process. The designers and professional diamond cutters measure what form certain stones can be given.
Peter Bombeke， a third generation diamond cutter， has recently introduced the "dragon cut"， which， based on Chinese lucky number eight， brings about sixty four facades for a diamond.
"The actual cut took me a couple of months... It is very shiny， more shiny than a brilliant. Because you have those facades， with more and extra detail， you get the shift in the light return， making it look much whiter that it really is，" Bombeke told Xinhua.
Despite challenges from modern technology and machinery， the traditional craftmanship of processing diamonds in Antwerp is still among the most prestigious and advanced in the world. As long as people still see diamonds as a symbol of love or a way to demonstrate wealth， the city of diamonds will continue to shine.
