In this debut episode, Paul discusses the current state of the diamond industry with leading journalist Rob Bates from JCK magazine. The two discuss whether the negative sentiment in the diamond industry is justified and how the industry can continue to drive demand for diamonds in the post- De Beers’ monopoly era. The discussion then turns to lab-created diamonds and the success of Lightbox one-year after launch. Lastly, the talk delves into Rob’s recent research on the environmental and social impact of lab-created diamonds relative to natural.
