RAPAPORT... Diamond manufacturer Stuller said it has become the first supplier in the United States to provide a rare ability to track the journey of melee diamonds through the supply chain.

The company partnered with miner Dominion Diamond Corporation to introduce the CanadaMark goods to the North American market. All diamonds are responsibly mined in Canada’s Northwest Territories, comply with the Canadian Diamond Code of Conduct and are natural and untreated, Stuller said.

“Stuller has always carried melee diamonds, but now through the CanadaMark melee program, we’ll be able to offer our customers natural melee that has been tracked from mine to market,” said Stanley Zale, Stuller’s vice-president of diamonds and gemstones (pictured). “Because of its size, melee is rarely tracked, so this is a big deal.”

The program will track melee in batches through audited processes at every stage from the country of origin to the polished stone, Zale added.
