RAPAPORT... Birks in Canada is premiering a 16.01-carat, VVS1, fancy intense yellow diamond at its Edmonton location beginning this week. The diamond is set in a platinum ring and adorned with diamond pavé.
The diamond will head to Birks in Calgary after its Edmonton showing.
This yellow diamond's color is of natural origin and its large size and high clarity makes it exceptional, according to Birks.
The stone was recently discovered and the retailer is marketing it as ''guaranteed conflict-free'' since it was sourced ethically through ''a responsible chain of custody.''
