My main diamond is a Canadian diamond. I only know this because the appraiser showed me the imprint/stamp on it through the microscope.

They are pretty for sure, but diamonds from anywhere can be ideal cut lol

my 1/2 carat canadian diamond. I am thrilled to own an ethical diamond. They are generally about 15-20% more expensive than normal, which is terribley manipulative, but worth it.The diamond itself was mined in British Columbia and has never left Canada. It has earned the nickname “ice”, because it’s perfectly colorless and sparkles like crazy!

Mine is a Canadian diamond, just shy of 1 ct, from the Diavik mine. I need to get some good pictures, but for now, a picture of where my diamond came from:

All three of my stones are Canadian! goo Canada, eh πŸ˜€ they showed my Fiance the laser imprinting when he bought it. It is also written all over my appraisal card that they are Canadian. I like the ethics behind it and the fact that it’s from my country πŸ™‚

Canadian diamonds are not really any different from non-Canadian diamonds in terms of cut/colour/clarity. I have heard though that there are more diamonds per ton of ore than in many mines, and that the raw diamonds tend to be large and you can get a higher than normal number of large, clearer, more colourless gems from Candian mines. Basically your chances of getting a good quality, big rock are higher.

Canadian diamonds are also certified conflict free. All Certified Candian Diamonds are traced from the mine to the lab to the store, so you know that they’re for sure not blood diamonds. Any mining company that wants to mine diamonds in Canada also has to do so as environmentally sustainably as possible. Many Canadian diamonds are also laser engraved with a serial number registered with the Canadian government so that if your diamond goes missing or is stolen, if anyone tries to sell it, it can be traced back to you. Well at least my Canadian diamond is registered. Boyfriend or Best Friend hasn’t officially presented it to me so I don’t have a photo, but the diamond was gorgeous!
