    A hoax until proven otherwise. And can't be if it's secret.

    I expect that he'll be receiving (if not already has) a phone call from DeBeers...............

    ........ Either that, or a mysterious car crash or fall.
    May your Spirit stay unbroken, may you not be deterred.

    It's real but I doubt the market value will be the same in the long run, which frankly is a shame considering what's involved in getting traditional diamonds.
    That's life, and I can't deny it
    Many times I thought of cuttin' out but my heart won't buy it

    so what is a diamond? is it valuable cause it is rare?

    and if not rare, is it still valuable? can u imagine diamonds were so common that everyone had them on their finger and earlobe?
    yawn.

    "Diamonds might also be formed inside carbon rich stars like what dwarfs. So, as per our current understanding it can be safely said that wood is more rare than diamonds, in the entire galaxy".

    Also:

    Diamonds aren't as rare as you think. It wasn't until the late 1930s, thanks to a little company named De Beers, that the idea of a diamond engagement ring started being pushed to the mass market. Creating a psychological need for diamonds was just part of a much bigger marketing strategy that made De Beers so successful.

    Diamonds may be the hardest material found on Earth, but they're certainly not the rarest. In fact, of all gemstones, diamonds are actually the most common, according to the International Gem Society. But, because DeBeers set up the first large-scale diamond mines in South Africa and managed to gain control of the supply as diamonds appeared in other parts of Africa and South America, it wasn't easy to buy diamonds from another company. This allowed DeBeers to regulate diamond prices, and play them up as a "rarity."

    If you've ever tried to sell a diamond, then you probably already know that these babies decrease in value by about 50 percent as soon as you walk out of a jewelry store. Yikes, and we thought the depreciation on cars was bad.
