Why the name Silvius Druon?
The name Silvius Druon is the contraction of two first names: Silvius Brabo and Druon Antigoon, two well-known figures from Antwerp folklore. The infamous giant Druon Antigoon instructed all skippers on the Scheldt to pay a toll. If they refused, Antigoon cut of (one of) their hands and threw them into the Scheldt. The young hero Silvius Brabo defeated the giant, cut off one of his hands and threw it into the Scheldt. From this ‘hand throwing’ in Dutch ‘hand werpen’ the name Hant-werpen / Antwerpen should have originated. Brabo was given a statue on the Grote Markt, just around the corner from the DIVA Museum. Did you know that this neighborhood used to be known for its diamond dealers, gold and silversmiths? History repeats itself…
The unique and new Belgian high-end jewelry brand Silvius Druon, is abbreviated ‘S & D’; also the initials of the two brothers, Stefan and Dennis Leemans, the second generation of Belgian diamond dealers. The family business was founded by their parents in 1982 in the well-known Antwerp diamond district. Both brothers now have their own high end jewelry brand, designed and manufactured in Antwerp. Stefan is responsible for most creations; his younger brother Dennis does the follow-up of the specialist craftsmen: goldsmiths, setters, polishers and engravers. They work exclusively with stones that were strictly selected for their color, purity and certification.
The S & D flagshipstore is housed in DIVA, the gold, silversmith and diamond museum in Antwerp and welcomes all connoisseurs with a sophisticated taste for high end jewelery. The boutique on the first floor offers an extensive selection of rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, cufflinks, etc.
Lovers can seal the commitment to each other with an engagement or wedding ring from the SILVIUS DRUON range.
