Posted by NBC News Entertainment Correspondent Deborah Divine on Tuesday, November 27, 2018 08:59:07The mystery of what happens when diamonds are cracked is one of the many mysteries of the diamond industry.
Many say the most recent diamond-cracking incident involved a man who was arrested after he tried to sell a diamond ring he’d broken.
But in a new book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Crispin Divine, he digs into the truth behind the crack in the mystery.
In “Cracking the Diamond,” Divine describes how the diamond rings that are cracked are usually the most beautiful diamonds.
And he goes on to tell how a group of jewelry designers discovered that diamonds in the middle of the ring could be cracked into a beautiful, elegant diamond, but there’s no way to get the ring back.
Divine explains why the diamond market is so much like any other.
He also discusses the story of a man whose wife broke up with him because she didn’t think he could marry her.
