The information gathered here comes from the most authoritative sources in the field. The contributors-historians, geologists, prospectors, mineralogists, gemologists, engineers, diamond cutters, jewelers-are men who have earned the respect of their colleagues throughout the world.
This unprecedented work, organized under the leadership of Jacques Legrand, is the result of three years of intensive work. Mr Legrand traversed the globe to collect information and illustrations never before available to the general public, showing us the world of the extraordinary men who extract the most precious stones from the depths of the earth, and unveiling the mysteries of the centuries-old profession of those who transform these stones into precious jewels.
