Amanda Hooton's May 2019 cover story, 'Diamonds aren't forever', explores the myth and magic behind one of Australia's most successful raw luxury exports, pink diamonds, and what will happen when the Kimberley mine in which they're found closes next month. Amanda is then joined in conversation by jewellery designer John Calleija, and Good Weekend editor Katrina Strickland, to discuss why pink diamonds are so ridiculously hard to find, cut, polish and set, and what the impending mine closure means for their value.
Discussion starts at 29:30.
