Making Money: The Diamond Cutter

In New York City’s diamond district, behind the glistening jewelry markets and through a maze of narrow corridors, sits a ninety-two-year-old diamond cutter named Max Fuchs. He works quietly at a cutting bench cluttered with blocky metal tools, his hands worn from years of shaping rough stones into modern cuts. As the diamond industry moves abroad for lower-cost labor, Fuchs believes he is among the oldest in an ever-shrinking field of New York diamond cutters.
