How are Canadian diamonds different from other diamonds?  You can see I know nothing about diamonds, LOL.

Canadian diamonds are basically mined in Canada which means the likelyhood of the diamond having a tainted history is very, very minimal. It’s also nearly double the price.

Here’s mine! Even though you can barely see.

At the risk of sounding like a complete idiot, is there anything actually physically different about the Canadian diamonds?  Are they even more colorless or clear than diamonds from other continents?

Although it looks similar to yours, @Sunshine23: !

@very marry: I think that is wishful thinking.  Diamonds from anywhere can have ideal cut.  Canadian diamonds are just from Canada.

these are beautiful! my Fiance wanted to get me one of these specifically because he’s a Canadian, but I think he may have been scared away by the price!

@very marry: a flawless diamond is a flawless diamond, no matter where it came from. but the mines in canada just happen to have a larger quantity of fine quality diamonds compared to other mines.

according to this website, they cost more because of fair labor practices, harsh mining conditions, and the diamonds are very fine quality: http://www.canadadiamonds.com/canadian_diamonds_cost.htm
