Of course it is.

Until the start of the 21st century, De Beers effectively had total control over the diamond market as a monopoly.[3]

In 1926, (((Ernest Oppenheimer))) an immigrant to Britain and later South Africa who had earlier founded mining company Anglo American plc with American financier J.P. Morgan,[8] was elected to the board of De Beers.[9] He built and consolidated the company's global monopoly over the diamond industry until his death in 1957.

And Oppenheimer:

He was born into a Jewish family, but as an adult, he converted to Anglicanism and was buried at St George's Church, Parktown.

Diamonds only have one real use ... as an industrial cutting tool, or a damn good sand-paper.

It's women that demand this, if men could give them something else they would. Women are to blame for this.

Try not giving your woman a diamond ring when she feels entitled to one, and she will find someone who will.

DaBeers

They invented the idea of a diamond engagement ring.

BTW had a friend run a mall jewelry store a while ago. Their markup was 7x. If they paid $100 for an item the sold it for $700. So they could have half off sales.
