The Book of Diamonds introduces the reader to the world of fascinating gems. Have you heard the Arthurian legend, the romance of the stone? In this case the stone is the diamond. The history of diamonds is thoroughly covered but there isn't a boring word in this book. I recommend to anyone who is interested in the subject of diamonds and that includes gemologists and those who love bling.
A must-read for diamond enthusiasts. Everything you could image on the subject is in this book and the photos are plentiful & interesting.
Published in 1965! Great book, easy to read and very informative.
Wonderful read if you love gemstones and history.
excellent reference book
