Dealers Among Dealers (1995)

          AC Films producer

           Directed by Gaylen Ross

"That stone said, 'Buy me. Even if you can't afford me, buy me. Hock the farm.'" The stone is a diamond, and the speaker is a diamond dealer, willing to bid over $8 million on a gem over the telephone. In the insular and virtually impenetrable world of diamond trading, precious gems change hands with nothing more than "mazel and brocha," a handshake and a promise.

The film offers a rare insider's view of the fascinating, traditional New York diamond industry, where dealers still operate according to ethics and practices established centuries ago by their European Jewish ancestors.

Generation after generation, the diamond dealers have stuck together, a fiercely loyal group still attached to the customs that have sustained them for centuries, in good times and bad.
