If you're a New York diamond dealer, the hottest ticket in the city this October will be for a dinner to honor De Beers held during the World Diamond Congress, October 17-20, 2004.
The company will be coming to America - for the first time since 1945.
After admitting guilt in a price-fixing case brought by the US Justice Department in 1994 and paying a $10m fine, De Beers is now free to come and go in this country.
And their first stop will be the Waldorf Astoria in New York City where representatives of the company will be honored at a special dinner during the World Diamond Congress, October 17-20, 2004.
De Beers will also be on hand for a gala dinner at the United Nations Delegates Lounge to honor various diamond industry leaders.
