Nothing quite compares to the elegant simplicity that comes with a pair of diamond studs – especially if they’re Canadian! Perfect on their own, or paired with other ear piercings, diamond studs are the ultimate staple piece.
A 1.04ct. and 1.02ct. round brilliant cut, Canadian diamonds are set in beautiful 14k yellow gold, six-prong settings, with petal-like galleries and straight back posts.
The 1.04ct. measures 6.47 x 6.44 x 4.02mm and faces up with a fairly eye-clean I-2 clarity, faint yellow tone per the K colour, with an unbeatable sparkle from the Very Good quality cut. The matched stone measures 6.57 x 6.47 x 3.94mm and bears nearly identical qualities, asides from its L colour. Side by side, these beauties are indistinguishable.
Both these diamonds were graded before being set, by GS Laboratories (Gem Scan), and come with a “lab ID” that can be verified through the Gem Scan website (http://certificate.gslaboratories.com). Being Canadian mined diamonds, these stones also feature unique serial numbers laser inscribed on the girdle of the stones (https://www.mapleleafdiamonds.com/tracking).
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.
