I wonder how much has changed?

Since that article, cubic zirconia has come into vogue, Canadian diamonds have been discovered, and they have started manufacturing diamonds from scratch that you can't tell apart from a diamond made over 1000s of years from coal.

What is the current environment like for De Beer's? Any idea Paul?

I"m not sure. I know I've read that De Beers is struggling a bit with the new competition.

however, it's also in their competition's best interest to keep the price of diamonds artificially high. Quick, someone find the answer!
