Rare, romantic, and forever: The diamond industry depends on these myths to reap billions of dollars of profit. This sensational investigation explodes such fallacies and -reveals how multimillion dollar advertising campaigns create the impression of rarity and romance. It reveals, too, a very secret and unromantic world, one that is dominated and controlled by a handful of mighty corporations.

Taking us through seven decades of intrigue and -manipulation that span the globe, Janine Roberts has written the most expansive and explosive expos ever on diamonds; among Roberts' revelations:
How De Beers hides away rich diamond deposits-and where some of these are located.How a long-term companion of Jackie Onassis was a CIA-linked millionaire diamond merchant tied to coups and dictators in Central Africa.Just how diamonds are "fixed" to make them more expensive.How major diamond companies cooperated with Hitler's Germany-and how much they were paid.How industrial diamond supplies were artificially -restricted to the United States during World War II, severely damaging its war effort and how U.S. Intelligence came to suspect treason.How a major diamond deposit in Arkansas was sabotaged to stop it coming into production.How the White House was manipulated into buying millions of diamonds it did not need and now must sell.How terrorism found its way into the diamond trade, not recently but many decades ago.How diamonds are secretly moved by the millions around the world.

The inquiry the diamond cartel did not want and tried to stop. . . . If you have ever wondered what tales might lie behind the glitter of a diamond ring, read this account of the most international media investigation ever launched!
