Handcrafted in California, each and every Tacori ring is quite literally hand made by highly skilled artisans. From the molds of the ring, to carving the signature crescent design, to setting each individual stone – it is all done in house, by hand.
Tacori rings combine regality and passion, offering something for everyone while being unique in their execution. This particular Tacori is no different. Designed in their “Cathedral” foundation, categorized in the “Dantela” collection, the crown of this engagement ring sits high atop dainty, channel set diamond band, and is encompassed by a square shaped, spotlight halo of diamonds, allowing for maximum light reflection.
The 0.90ct. Canadian princess cut centre diamond is showcased in dainty but strong prongs, putting all the focus on this sparkling stone. It measures approximately at 5.13 x 4.98 x 3.95mm., its symmetrical table perfect for showing off its immaculate qualities of VVS-1 clarity, G colour, and very good 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 which reads, “(Maple Leaf logo) – MCMCO-290385”. This unique serial number 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).
Peeking out just below this stone is the square shaped halo, giving just enough extra sparkle to give the centre piece a face lift with the apparition of another shape. Transitioning seamlessly from the halo to the band, the diamonds flow down this dainty setting within borders of millgrained gold. Crawling up the profile of the foundation is Tacori’s signature design; the “Simply Tacori” crescent fabric, carved out of the gold itself.
Like with every Tacori piece, this also features the “Signature Crescent” on the resting point of the ring, its distinguishing mark. Between the halo, the band, and the diamonds on the foundation, there are a total of forty-eight round brilliant cuts that make up a total weight of 0.44ct., with approximate measurements of 1.70 – 0.90 x 0.81mm., and qualities graded at the “Tacori standard” of VS clarity, G colour, and good cut.

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 honored.
