About the book

From the beginning of time, diamonds have had a mystique about them that sets them apart from other gems. They have found mention in religion, mythology, folklore, and many an urban legend. They are the symbol of power, wealth, and royalty, and no crown has ever been complete without them. But the beauty of diamonds contrasts with the complex and harsh processes that are undertaken to make them. The fascinating journey of diamonds, from the coal mine to the jeweller's desk, has not yet been documented in such detail, or with such insight. This documentation is necessary for all those interested in the diamond industry and its changing face in recent times. Diamonds brings together the work of a write and two photographers, all of whom specialize in the diamond industry. From the history of diamonds and diamond cutting, to the change in laws and the way the pipeline had shaped up, this is an extensive book on the subject.
