Sitting within the confines of vibrant, 14k yellow gold, is a single 1.60ct. natural Canadian round diamond crystal. Being that this stone is uncut, it has not been measured or graded, but it does have a laser inscription that reads, “(Maple Leaf Logo) RCD-001009”. This engraving matches the documentation provided, allowing it to be tracked from the Canadian mine it was extracted from, all the way to the consumer. You can rest assured that this diamond was mined ethically, with only the highest environmental standards. You can “track” your diamond at (https://www.mapleleafdiamonds.com/tracking).
This diamond shaped yellow gold and crystal pendant is strung on a 46cm (approx. 18.1-inches), 14k yellow gold box link chain, leaving the simple but elegant bauble suspended right above the heart of the wearer. Certificate of Origin and Appraisal provided by Maple Leaf Diamonds and GS Laboratories, (http://certificate.gslaboratories.com), with a “replacement value” of $4,300.00.
Canadian diamond and gold mines have some of the strictest regulations when it comes down to ethical and environmental standards, ensuring that our ecosystems, environment and the people employed within these companies are taken care of. We believe in the social justice for Indigenous Canadian’s and support strong labour laws to ensure these workers, within the mines and surrounding areas, are treated well, paid well, and are protected by their Unions.
Here at Barry’s, we work very closely with Maple Leaf Diamonds because their Green Initiative aligns with our own. All their products, gold and diamonds alike, are ethically sourced and environmentally sound right here in Canada. In tandem with their product, we know that their employees are being respected and their hard work honoured.
