Your Northwest Alternative to Blood Diamonds: Polar Bear Diamonds, Quebec

With all the uncertainty about the diamonds in jewelers’ showcases, it’s nice to know there is at least one diamond you can be sure did not fund killing in a third world country. That diamond comes from Polar Bear Diamonds, in Quebec, Canada.

The Northern Lights diamonds cut at the Polar Bear Diamonds cutting facilities have 89 facets, and give off a unique dispersion of light, inspired by the real Northern Lights. But it’s not just the beauty of the actual diamonds they produce at Polar Bear Diamonds, but the certainty of their diamonds’ origin that makes them special. Every single Polar Bear Diamond is microscopically laser-inscribed with a polar bear symbol. It’s easy now to frost yourself and leave first world guilt at the ballroom door.
