An incredible beauty shines brightly in
the Canadian arctic. Diamonds exquisitely pure and clean.
Canada's diamond mine is the first producing diamond mine
in North America. Located 200 kilometers south of the Arctic
Circle in the Northwest Territories.
Diamonds symbolize happiness and eternal
love. Sadly for many, they mean conflict, misery and poverty.
In African countries such as Angola, Democratic Republic

diamond trade are used to obtain weapons and fund armed
conflicts. Tens of thousands of civilians have been killed,
mutilated or abducted.
The Canadian diamond is a clear alternative
to conflict African diamonds. Proof of the diamond's origin
is essential to ensure your diamond has not contributed
to human rights abuses. Canadian diamonds are the only diamonds
in the world monitored from the mine throughout the manufacturing
Certified Canadian diamonds are
accompanied with a Certificate
of Authenticity from the Government of the North West
Territories (GNWT) guaranteeing its Canadian origin.
A government seal with the GNWT's official
polar bear insignia adorns the certificate. The certificate
states that the accompanying diamond has met the high standards
outlined by the GNWT Certification Program including a Gemprint
image of the diamond. A Gemprint image is the world's most
sophisticated, non-invasive diamond identification system
which uses a computer to scan an image, or "fingerprint"
of the diamond. Each diamond has its own distinctive characteristics.
This provides yet another level of authenticity that the
diamond is truly Canadian.
"This certification system
guaranteeing the origin of NWT diamonds is on the leading
edge of the diamond industry. No other region in the world
is putting such a program in place."
Hon. Joseph Handley,
Minister of Resources,
