This new book from Tectum Publishers tells the story of the diamond, from raw stone to jewel, in an extremely attractive way. We see artistic images of barren mining districts at the North Pole, in the jungle and on tropical coastlines. Alongside hundreds of photos of the most beautiful diamonds and jewellery, this book also reveals the variety of people and cultures that are active in the diamond business: the African mine workers, the Chinese diamond cutters in the factory, the international buyers at the diamond exchanges…
Ths book will be available in a regular edition with a slipcase as well as in a luxury edtion.

Text by Christine Gordon, photography by: Donald Woodrow (additional photography by Laurent Boeki and other sources).
