You mean Canadian Diamonds?

http://www.thecanadiandiamond.com/cdc.html

I am not familiar with Canadian Rocks, but I know that Canadian diamonds are a thing, there are a number of mines up North a bit before the Arctic. There is also what we call Polar Bears diamonds – there is an actual polar bear engraved in the diamond for tracking.

Canadian diamonds were quite popular a few years back. Before the Kimberly Process was implemented, Canadian diamonds (Polar Bears or others) were the only diamonds that could be considered conflict free (i.e. not blood diamonds.) When I wasa teenager about 15 years ago, I wanted nothing but a Canadian diamond. Then last years when we started talking about engagement and rings, I specified that I either wanted a Canadian diamond or a Kimberly certified diamond.

This website should be able to answer your questions! You should also be able to look up the serial number under the Registration link if they’re legit… http://www.thecanadiandiamond.com/cdc.html 

Basically our government regulates the mining of diamonds, requires them to have a certificate of authenticity along with the lasered inscription so they can be tracked from the point of extraction to sale. They’re guaranteed conflict-free and are mined according to federal labour laws. I imagine there’s every grade of diamond as with diamonds mined anywhere else.

I don’t know much about them, other than that the ring I fell in LOVE with is a Canadian Rock setting and diamond… so I’m commenting to follow!
