The Diavik diamond mine was formed billions of years ago under Lac de Gras in the Northwest Territories of Canada. An extreme mining feat by Rio Tinto saw innovative engineering allow the recovery of what are known as some of the world's most beautiful diamonds.
The Mine of Origin programme has been created by Rio Tinto to guarantee the origin of their diamonds and the quality of the mine that produced them.
The Mine of Origin programme assures their clients that:
* Each Certified Diamond is a natural gem sourced from Rio Tinto's Diavik Diamond Mine in the Northwest Territories of Canada.
* Each Diavik diamond is tracked and segregated from other product streams from the mine to market.
* Each Diavik diamond is manufactured by a Select Diamantaire.
* Certified gems are laser-etched with a unique number, traceable to the Rio Tinto Diamonds lot number indicating size of original rough.
