Diamond District Report: Big Vaults, Etc.

Blogger Gotham Gal peruses the diamonds along West 47th Street, exploring the hidden world of one jeweler:

Going up to her office is a trip.  You need to be let through 2 doors to get in. Security is high everywhere because god knows how many millions of dollars of gems are lying around. Big vaults, etc. She has taken me on back room adventures into some buildings on 47th street to get things fixed. It is a trip not only meeting the people but seeing the small confined spaces they work in and the jewelry crafts that they have mastered.
Plus, bonus analysis of diamond market prices, for those with the means.
