Why CanadaMark Diamonds?



Nineteen48 has always specialised in providing traceable and ethically-sourced coloured gemstones. Therefore, it was very important to find a source of diamonds that matched our company’s values. Through one of our trusted partners we were introduced to CanadaMark diamonds which are the ideal fit for us.

Every CanadaMark diamond is:

  • Responsibly-mined in Canada’s Northwest Territories
  • 100% natural and untreated
  • Tracked through audited processes at every stage from place of origin to polished stone
  • Cut & polished to a very high standard exclusively by approved manufacturers (who have been audited themselves)
  • Guaranteed by the CanadaMark hallmark program which provides an independent verification that a diamond is of Canadian origin.

These stunning gems are sourced by the Dominion Diamond Corporation from the Ekati and Diavik mines in Canada’s Northwest Territories.

Canadian environmental protection laws require that a thorough environmental assessment be carried out before a diamond mine can be approved, that effective systems are in place to protect local wildlife, and that the land be restored once mining has ceased.

Canadian miners are also protected by strict health and safety regulations and Canadian employment laws preclude child labour and any form of “sweatshop” working conditions.

As part of their commitment to preserving the environment, the mines are also signatories to specific environmental agreements that involve local groups and the government.

Unless you know where a diamond was mined and cut, you cannot be certain that it was ethically produced. Canada is currently the only country in the world to operate a system to monitor and track diamonds from the mine in this way.
