Rough Diamond Mining
Diavik Sourced diamonds originate from the Diavik Diamond Mine in Canada’s Northwest Territories. The rough diamonds are carefully extracted from the earth under the highest possible ethical, environmental and safety standards.
Diamond Sorting and Selection
Once the rough diamonds have been unearthed, they are assessed and sorted according to their size, shape colour and other characteristics, before being passed to highly trained diamantaires.
Diamond Cutting and Polishing
The work of the diamantaire is a time-honored profession that requires skills and knowledge that have been passed across generations. Master cutters appointed by the Diavik mine (the Rio Tinto Select Diamantaires™) carefully cut and polish the diamonds for maximum beauty, transforming rough crystals into breathtaking gems of all sizes and grades.
Jewelry Design & Manufacturing
Hand-picked jewellery manufacturers selected by the Diavik mine apply their expert craftsmanship to create finished jewellery pieces that bring out the inherent qualities and beauty of the diamonds.
Only the finest stores are authorized to distribute authentic Diavik Sourced jewellery as part of the Diavik mine’s Chain of Custody platform. .
