It's interesting that the article predicted the end of the diamond cartel to come in the mid 80s. Here we are, 30 years later, and it's still going strong!
Love them or hate them, De Beers is brilliant. Their marketing plan is one of the most successful ever and has undergone so many evolutions to meet the changing markets and needs of the diamond industry.
Make me wonder what they'll hatch up once the Amora Gem reaches significant production?
