Love is in full bloom with this botanically designed engagement ring.
The “pistil” of this blossom dazzles with a 0.52ct. round brilliant cut natural Canadian diamond, with an expanse measuring at approximately 5.29 x 5.25 x 3.14mm. to show off the incredible VVS-1 clarity, G near colourless, and stunning Excellent cut. This diamond was 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).
Being a Canadian mined diamond, this stone also features a unique serial number laser inscribed on the girdle of the stone that reads, “(Canada Mark Logo) CM-386823”. 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 after it had been cut and polished. 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).
Immediately surrounding the centre stone are eleven round brilliant cut natural diamonds, set in a shared prong setting to give the “petals” a bubbled and defined appearance. Encompassing this halo is a secondary halo of smaller diamonds that frames and exudes the botanical air this piece possesses.
The band appears seamless from the setting, splitting off in a delicate split shank.
In total, there are eighty-six round brilliant cut natural diamonds with approximate measurements that range from 2.30 to 1.00mm., an approximate total weight of 1.01ct., and qualities by gauge of VVS-2 to SI-1 clarity, F-G colour, and Excellent cut. Embedded into the inside of the pristinely white platinum band is a single, 0.02ct., natural fancy intense yellow Canadian diamond.
Ten of the side diamonds are also Canadian and all eleven stones are laser inscribed; these inscriptions can be found on the Certificate of Origin provided by Maple Leaf Diamonds.
Certificate of Origin and Appraisal provided by Maple Leaf Diamonds and GS Laboratories with a “replacement value” of $10,900.00.
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.
