Dominion Diamond Corporation has announced that La Pierre Précieuse Inc. from Montreal, Quebec is the winner of the 2017 CanadaMark Jewellery Competition award. The competition honors jewelry pieces with the highest level of creativity and excellence in quality and style, showcasing CanadaMark certified diamonds. The winning pendant features a 0.40 carat, round brilliant CanadaMark certified stone centered in a warm rose gold maple leaf setting with a Canadian maple wood background.
Retailers from across Canada were invited to submit a unique pendant design featuring a CanadaMark certified diamond. In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, the theme for each design was “Canada”. Out of ten finalists selected by Dominion, La Pierre Précieuse’s design was chosen by consumers as the favorite through a vote held on the CanadaMark website, which was open to the general public in Canada for four weeks ending May 31, 2017.
