In honor of my journey to the JCK Toronto show—I’m moderating a panel on how jewelers can make social media work for their stores today—I found five stories in the JCK archives that featured America’s neighbor to the north.
This past June, the Dartmouth, Nova Scotia–based company generated 14.5 million Canadian dollars ($14.1 million) in revenue.
A 75 ct. t.w. rough diamond necklace commissioned by Birks & Mayors was worn by Allie MacDonald to the Toronto International Film Festival in 2010.
There was quite a bit of buzz in 2009 after a Canadian mining company announced it had found purple micro-diamonds at its site.
In the December 2002 issue of JCK, senior editor Rob Bates wrote that Canada had arrived in the diamond industry in a big way and that it was bound to get bigger. Have those predictions come to fruition in the past decade?
A feature in the February 2001 issue of JCK detailed the fight between Canada’s Northern Territories and Sirius diamonds over…polar bears.
