As the first decade of the 21st century draws to a close, Diamond World does a recap of some of the momentous developments or events during these 10 years that have shaped the global diamond industry; and some which have been particularly significant for the Indian gems and jewellery industry. We also present three sets of personalities: 10 leading lights of international stature who made a significant difference to the industry; 10 young Indian entrepreneurs who have emerged as strong helmsmen of their businesses and 10 young turks poised to conquer the heights in the coming decade. And finally, we dip into our archives and provide excerpts of the 10 most significant stories of the last 10 years appearing in Diamond World.

The making of lists for such pieces is always one of the most difficult tasks. So many choices, all with validity and merit in their own way. But when one is limited to a list of 10, it necessarily means that all others, however deserving, cannot be included. And no matter how measured a decision one makes, there is always room for another point of view. That is what makes for a plurality of views and opinion that is the basis of all democratic processes and institutions.

On our part while choosing the developments/events, we have picked those that we thought had the most impact and with the widest possible ramifications for a substantial portion of the industry. Where people were concerned we chose to base our picks on a combination of the track record of the company and the person. We looked at those companies which had made progress and the people who had shaped that development. We have tried to keep in view the following questions when choosing both events and personalities: how important was that event or person? What has been the contribution to the industry/his company? What and how substantial an impact has been made?

Again, before we sign off and leave you to leaf through Tthe Decade that Was, we remind you that it is in no way exhaustive listing, it is merely the tip of the iceberg. But it does provide a glimpse into an industry which is truly dazzling. And is a pointer to how much more lies beneath
