At Design Village we strive to provide the educated consumer with authentic Certified Canadian Diamonds at outstanding value.
In 1991, diamonds were first discovered in Canada’s Northwest Territories (NWT). That discovery put both the Northwest Territories and Canada on the world map as a significant producer of quality diamonds and resulted in the establishment of state of the art cutting and polishing facilities in the North and the development of programs to train diamond professionals.
Before diamond companies are able to build mines in Canada’s Arctic, they are required to conduct a thorough environmental assessment of their proposed project. They must also adhere to stringent environmental regulation and high labor and operating standards as set out by the Government of Canada and the Northwest Territories.
Mining companies must ensure that any impact on the environment is minimal. Social and economic impacts on northerners and their communities must also be carefully reviewed.
