Can you tell the real thing from a fake? What if the difference no longer matters? The De Beers diamond cartel cornered the market on eternal love with the “A diamond is forever” catchphrase, but now a wave of undetectable synthetic diamonds has flooded global gem markets, threatening to expose the artifice that props up a multi-billion dollar industry. Featuring interviews with diamond merchants, De Beers execs, auctioneers, gemologists, designers, investigators, and scientists, this film explores one of the most beautiful lies ever told. A Showtime release

An engaging look at the forces undermining the natural diamond industry, and how its leaders are fighting to preserve the myth of ‘value.'”
