ECOnatural Diamonds from Canada
At Cornelia Webb we have chosen to work with ECOnatural™ diamonds from Canada.
ECOnatural™ diamonds come from the Ekati and Diavik mines in a remote region near the Arctic Circle. Since the discovery of diamonds in this area in the 1990s, the mines have a proud history of protecting the integrity of the land, water, workers and wildlife. Thanks to this collaboration, we can guarantee the diamonds' actual origin & climate footprint. The mines follow strict environmental agreements between the indigenous people and federal governments, and are traced through audited processes from origin into polished stones.
An external sustainability agency have analyzed how much carbon dioxide emissions a diamond from mining to jewellery generates. Everything from the mining, the grinding process, any intermediaries and the shipping. All this is then climate compensated via a Gold Standard certified tree planting project. Trees are planted for the amount of carbon dioxide released because of the diamond. Carbon dioxide is absorbed and we reduce the impact on the climate.
