the invention of diamond desire

John posted this link to an article called, “Have you Ever Tried to Sell a Diamond?” in the The Atlantic Monthly back from 1982. It is a comprehensive (long) essay on the brilliant marketing scheme that has equated diamonds with love and romance. He posted it as a comment to one of my diamond posts, but I thought the article deserved a little headline time. Thanks John!
