The company will say good-bye to the fortress-like headquarters it has occupied since the 1930s
It is the end of (yet another) era.
De Beers is moving from 17 Charterhouse St., its headquarters since the 1930s, a spokesperson said, confirming a Bloomberg report.
The imposing headquarters, adjacent to London’s Hatton Garden diamond district, was always considered iconic in the diamond industry and a crucial part of the company’s mystique.
Later this year, the company’s London headquarters will move to the headquarters of parent company Anglo American, the spokesperson confirmed.
The building no longer holds the company sights, which moved to Botswana in November 2013.
