Why are diamonds so expensive?

Diamonds are actually carbon pieces that was subjected to intense pressure and heat far down in Earth’s interior.  It takes a lot of time before the carbon is compacted and becomes the incredibly hard diamond.

Diamond are known as the hardest known natural substance on Earth. But before they become into the sparkly gems that we are familiar with, they must be first extracted from the earth, cleaned, cut and polished before they even get to the jewelers.

And these processes takes a great deal of time, manpower and money.
