If diamonds are a girl's best friend then one visitor Thursday in Danville should be on speed dial.
Ben David Jewelers in Danville hosted a diamond cutter demonstrating the long process it takes for a diamond to turn into something exquisite.
Eric, who didn't give his last name for security reasons, says his father and grandfather both were diamond cutters.
He told us the process is unique.
"People find it surprising that a diamond cuts a diamond. Now you have to take a diamond and crush it and make it into a powder in order to cut another diamond. Cause you, if you just put it on a wheel it's not going to cut. You can stick it there for two weeks, you're not going to do anything," Eric said.
Hurricane Sandy kept Eric and his team from coming earlier this month because they live in New York and were grounded until airports reopened.
The jewelery store has a signature line of diamonds, some of which are cut by Eric.
