—The Story

The story of Diavik Sourced diamonds begins billions of years ago under the subarctic terrain of the Northwest Territories, a vast expanse of snow-covered lakes and islands that remain frozen for up to ten months of the year.

Formed by the fires of creation 160 kilometres beneath this captivating landscape, these terrestrial treasures were discovered in 1991 on a vast northern lakebed that is now the site of the Diavik Diamond Mine.  It is here, in one of the most remote and inhospitable locations on Earth, where some of the most beautiful and brilliant diamonds have been responsibly unearthed.

Hidden beneath the icy tundra for nearly two billion years, the journey of each fiery gem discovered at Diavik is carefully monitored every step of the way to ensure its pristine provenance remains intact.
