Sitting within the bezel confines of Pure White™ 18k (containing 14% Palladium) nickel-free gold, are two natural cushion cut Canadian diamonds outlined and defined by a cushion shaped halo of round diamonds, each weighing 0.71ct. The expanse of each stone has approximate measurements of 4.92 x 4.91 x 3.52mm and 4.93 x 4.80 x 3.47mm, perfectly showing off the unique marks and colour, per their SI-1 and SI-2 clarity, K (faint brown) colour, and very good cut.
One of diamonds were graded before being set by GS Laboratories (Gem Scan) and comes with a “lab ID” that can be verified through the Gem Scan website (http://certificate.gslaboratories.com).
The other stone was graded by GIA and has a unique laser inscription on the girdle of the stone, which can be verified through the GIA website (https://www.gia.edu/report-check-landing). Being Canadian mined diamonds, each stone also features a unique serial number laser inscribed on the girdle of the stone that reads, “(Maple Leaf and Canada Mark Logos) CM-302627” and “(Maple Leaf and Canada Mark Logos) CM-302630”.
These engravings match the documentation provided, allowing them to be tracked from the Canadian mine they were extracted from, all the way to the consumer after being cut and polished. You can rest assured that each diamond was mined ethically, with only the highest environmental standards. You can “track” your diamonds at (https://www.mapleleafdiamonds.com/tracking).
Claw set in the cushion shaped halo spotlighting the centre stones are a total of thirty-two round brilliant cut diamonds, with an approximate total weight of 0.16ct. These stones are graded with SI clarity, G-H colour, and good cut, adding to the shimmering beauty these stud earrings radiate.

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.
