Is Google playing a foul game

Just one month back when the Google's old external keyword tool interface was active, in a keyword analysis google was showing 1million global exact search volume for diamond ring & diamond rings, but in the new interface it is showing below 75000 exact match.
Can any body explain this.

I can't find any official statement from Google but one comment on the Google Adwords support forum said that the drop in search volume is due to the change in data collection. The post said that the latest version gets it data on traffic while the old one is based on the traffic from and its search partners. Most people said that the new Google keyword tool is highly accurate.

Bizarre results between Keyword tool beta and previous interface

Google Keyword Tool Numbers Changed DRASTICALLY?!

Whats going on with Google's keyword tool?

How does Google Instant affect this? If people are not actually typing in their search request but just clicking on the phrase that shows up - is it recorded?
