About this book

'Diamonds make the ultimate statement about wealth and status, where 'bling' often speaks louder than words.' From Preface to Diamonds.

Why do we desire diamonds? Where does their characteristic 'fire' come from? Why are they seen as the ultimate symbol of love? And why are these crystals of pure carbon so highly prized? "Diamonds" is designed for the luxury-lover in your life and for anyone who has ever felt the allure of these sparkling natural gems. We take a look at the glamour and sparkle of the cut gems: the jewellery, fashion and celebrity. Also revealed are some of the amazing properties of diamond that make it a vital material for modern technology as well as a girl's best friend.

Diamonds exhibition at the Natural History Museum opening on 8 July 2005 is the world's largest exhibition of white and coloured diamonds. It showcases some of the world's most impressive diamonds and explores their role in cutting-edge scientific research.
