Reviews of 'Diamonds'

Excellent work and brilliant presentation, a work of art to be cherished.
Freddy J. Hanard (CEO, Antwerp World Diamond Centre)

A must for diamond lovers!
Finally a book that's easy to understand and with all of the information needed to know about diamonds. The new chapter about colour diamonds is sensational! This is a must for everyone that wants their questions about diamonds answered. Well done Mr Dundek.
Gianluca Piermaria

This book is SO thorough and informative that no other book on diamonds is needed. I couldn't put it down! It even includes info on colored and fluorescent diamonds, particular interests of mine.
D. J. Warlick

This fascinating book is a perfect introduction to the world of diamonds, reader friendly, easy to understand and beautifully illustrated.
The outstanding chapter on the natural fancy color diamonds really puts this book above all others.
Highly recommended.

Your book on 'Diamonds' is perfect material for me as a student lecturer, incredibly useful and a marvellous piece of work. It is so clear and well explained, both of which, all too often, seem difficult to achieve. I really enjoyed it enormously.
Sarah H Williams (Gemmologist and Jewellery Hist., MA Hons, FGA, Dia. Dip HRD)

If you're looking for a guide to diamonds that's both comprehensive and easy to understand, you can do no better than this deceptively slim book. Besides covering all the essential information, what really sets it apart from other books of this kind is its excellent section on fancy coloured diamonds, with descriptions and photos of diamonds that naturally occur in every colour of the rainbow. You'll soon have a good understanding of the factors that determine a diamond's value and even feel confident enough to choose a diamond yourself. I actually bought 2 copies of this book I enjoyed it that much.

I found this book very useful and exactly what I was looking for. It's easy to read and understand. It was very interesting to read about the transformation of the diamonds and what makes them special. Each cut and colour is explained really well and it's amazing how many different colours of diamonds there are. Great book!

A fantastic book!
Beautiful jaw dropping pictures. This book is the best book on coloured diamonds on the market today. Perfect for GIA, FGA students, collectors and all diamond sales people.

I purchased the first edition of this book when it came out years ago but this newest edition contains more information which I find is even more useful and informative in my understanding of the diamond market. Beautifully re-worked, it is a book which is complete in its information yet easy to understand and answer the questions one might have about diamonds and the purchasing of them. My compliments to Mr. Dundek!

The first thing to grab me when I opened this book were the fascinating colour images of diamonds in all their rich variety. I found the book very easy to digest, thanks to the clear and accessible language which avoids technical jargon, and hugely informative. I especially enjoyed reading about the history of diamonds and how they were prized by different cultures. Highly recommended.

The one to go for
As an amateur gemmologist with a keen interest in diamonds, I've read a number of books on the subject, however this is the first time I felt compelled to write a review. If you are going to buy just one guide to diamonds, this is the one to go for. It has all the basic information on white diamonds you'd expect, but it gives equal attention to 'fancies' (natural coloured diamonds) along with lots of gorgeous pictures! There are other special features too which set it apart. All in all, this is the best value for money guide to diamonds you can find, and now you can download it too!

Diamonds - Simply amazing
Beautifully presented, this amazing e-book enables the reader (even the novice diamond enthusiast) to understand everything there is to know about diamonds! The book is so easy to understand and beautifully illustrated in full colour! Highly recommended! Now I have all the facts about diamonds I need in the palm of my hand! Thank you Mr Dundek.
Christopher John Walker

Enjoyable but not comprehensive
A very short book, an excellent introduction to diamonds but leaves you wanting and needing more.
Jason Duesbury

The only way to buy diamonds
Rarely is a book so easy to understand and so useful in explaining what determines the value of diamonds.

Incredible book
Incredibly helpful guide to understand diamonds. It has also high quality fantastic and illustrative images, and really great book overall.

'Diamonds' sparkles on iBooks-shelf
My newly acquired 'Diamonds' e-book has more than met my expectations - it is truly spectacular! The book seems ideally suited to this new format, not least because the dozens of full-colour images of diamonds (including some of the world's most beautiful diamond jewels) appear even more vibrant and luminous on the screen than on the printed page. The clarity and detail of each facet and subtle shade of colour are reason enough to buy this, but you also get a practical guide to diamonds that gives you all the basic tools you need and more besides. There is also a bonus chapter on one amazing diamond, but I won't spoil the surprise! Whatever your level of interest in diamonds, this is a must-have title for your iBooks-shelf!

A beautiful guide to diamonds!
I recently bought 'Diamonds' e-book and I must say that this is one of the best guidebooks to diamonds. It showed me the whole process from the birth of a diamond to creating the final product, which is jewellery. Beautifully designed with dozens of colourful images and written in understandable language, it is easy for me to read - a passionate novice who is keen to know much about diamonds.
