"This excellent documentary on the diamond and jewelry industry is the only one that I know in the more than 25 years of my career in jewelry .. offering in my opinion an accurate and fascinating view of the world of international diamond dealing of New York's 47th Street"
François Curiel, International head of Christie's Jewelry Department
Within the virtually impenetrable world of diamond and precious stone trading, from the street exchanges to the world's great auction houses of Sotheby's and Christie's, "'Dealers Among Dealers" remains the only film to reveal this amazing society, capturing the dramatics of multi-million dollar deals with the everyday ritual and confidences, and deals made on trust and a handshake.
The film documents the tension and excitement of gem trading whether it be the daily hustle to make the bottom line, or the pursuit of the most magnificent stone. In this setting the documentary features some of the world's most precious and beautiful jewels, from arrival of the DeBeers site, to the $38 million dollar Patino collection auctioned at Sotheby's , to the D Flawless ninety carat Guinea Star, purchased for $10.5 million dollars, and the Cartier jewels of Christie's, and the many extraordinary gems in just day to day trading -- all seen close at hand and with the intimacy of a private viewing.
Since its original broadcast on the prestigious PBS' POV series, the film is a priceless historical record of those who were the industry's founders on Maiden Lane to the generations on 47th Street, and the high rise offices above.
