CanadaMark Melee Diamonds Introduced into UK

CanadaMark Melee Diamonds in Parcels

CanadaMark melee diamonds now available in UK

This week we introduced some of the first fully traceable melee diamonds into the UK. The first shipment of small CanadaMark 100% ethically sourced melee diamonds arrived this week—available to ethical jewellers within the UK, working with responsibly sourced materials.

Until this date, we have only been able to provide larger certified CanadaMark diamonds, certified by GIA. From this week, we have polished CanadaMark melee diamonds ranging from 0.01cts upwards. Parcels range in colours from D lower colour grades in a range of clarities from SI1 – SI2.

The ethical Melee diamonds are not supplied with the CanadaMark card (larger certified goods only.) Instead, parcels arrive with tamper proof seals with documentation establishing their supply route as part of the CanadaMark programme.

The introduction of CanadaMark melee diamonds is a next step in our policy for responsible sourcing. The CanadaMark melee diamond parcels are aimed at ethical jewellers within the UK.  Jewellers who work with small diamonds and Fairtrade Gold will be able to create commissions that are 100% ethically and responsibly sourced. Until now, it has been very difficult to create a fully traceable diamond wedding ring, but our small traceable diamonds now allow this to become a reality.

The CanadaMark melee diamonds originate from the Ekati Mine in Canada’s Northwest Territories. Diamonds are traceable through the CanadaMark system with a proven origin for diamonds back to the mine. CanadaMark melee diamonds are mined with consideration for the environment and provide social and economic benefits to communities in areas surrounding the mines.

Parcels are available with limited availability. Anyone interested can subscribe for updates and a current stock list with prices and availability. All subscribers will receive updates and stock information along with prices and availability.
