5.0 out of 5 stars
An excellent book, 7 Sept. 2010
The first thing to grab me when I opened this book were the fascinating colour images of diamonds in all their rich variety. I found the book very easy to digest, thanks to the clear and accessible language which steers clear of technical jargon, and hugely informative. I especially enjoyed reading about the history of diamonds and how they were prized by different cultures. Highly recommended.
