@WannaBeeMrsB:  Dumb question… what makes a Canadian diamond special?

My centre stone is a Canadian diamond. It says where it was mined on the certificate but I don’t feel like digging that out right now. 🙂

@mrspinesol:  They’re mined in the best country in the world! And they’re conflict free. Technically. Some would argue that the mines in the northern territories cause a lot of societal and environmental issues.  There’s a lot of good quality diamonds that come out of Canadian mines (in terms of colour, carat and clarity). Plus most Canadian diamonds are lazer engraved with a serial number that’s registered with the Canadian government so that you know a) where they came from and b) if one is ever stolen, it can be traced easier.

Mine is a 1 carat hearts and arrows mined in NWT! I can’t remember what year though 🙁

@WannaBeeMrsB:  Centre is .5ct NWT diamond. The lighting is weird, sorry.

 

@mrspinesol:  They are conflict free (as diamonds really only started being mined here in the 90’s), and the government has stricter regulations regarding the environmental impact of mines (diamond mines are notoriously detrimental to the environment.) The rough diamonds also have better colour overall.

Cool *Cool*

I don’t ever remember anyone posting a topic about Canadian Diamonds in the year+ that I’ve been a member here on WBee.

Both my Sparklies feature GIA Certified Canadian Diamonds.

And if memory serves me right, they are both from the Northwest Territories

(sorry I don’t have the paperwork with me, it is currently locked up in our Safety Deposit Box… so cannot recall if they came out of the DeBeers owned Mine … most likely… or the Harry Winston one)

My ERing came from a Family Run Jewellery Store, and the WBand from Peoples Canada (same Corp as Zales USA)

Hope this helps,

Here are my Canadian beauties. They are from the Polar Bear company, but I’m not sure exactly where in Canada they were mined.

Hey again!!! I have a friend that worked at the diamond mine in Ekati. It was bought out by Harry Winston a few years ago though. Not sure if some of us have our diamonds from them. I heard Saskatchewan is mining diamonds now!!!
