A Canadian Pink Diamond For Sale



Think Canada and images of hockey players, the Olympics, and
of course, snow, come to mind. But pink diamonds? That’s usually a product of
Australian mines … until now.

Birks & Mayors recently unveiled what it’s calling “the
first pink Ontario diamond” in a platinum and 18k gold—metal also mined in Canada—ring. The
stone, a 2.74 cts. t.w. natural-color light pink, oval-cut diamond, is from the
De Beers Victor mine in the James Bay Lowlands of Northern
Ontario (it is Ontario’s first diamond mine and the second in Canada for De
Beers). The diamond was cut and polished in Ontario, and has SI1 clarity,
according to the grade report issued by the Gemological Institute of America
and Birks & Mayors.

The ring, which also features colorless diamond accents and
took four weeks for to manufacture, as it was made specifically to fit the
dimensions of the stone. It is available at Birks Bay & Bloor in Toronto,
and, according to a Birks & Mayors spokesperson, it hasn’t yet sold! The
price: $430,000.
