What are the benefits of Canadian diamonds?

There are 3 main reasons as to why you should consider buying a Canadian Diamond:
1) Sustainable development and strict environmental laws on mining operations – The Canadian government imposes the toughest regulations on mining companies to protect wildlife, water and fishing habitats of the mining environment.
2) Social benefits and local economic prosperity – The aboriginal communities have benefited from the mining operations with the influx of fair labor jobs and infrastructure development.
3) Accountability and traceability – As soon as the rough diamond is mined, they are tracked through audited processes at every stage production to the end product of a polished stone.

Do ethical diamonds cost more?
