Here at Bashford Jewelry, we’ve been dealing in diamonds for decades and are delighted to share everything we’ve learned. In fact, we see it as our responsibility. It’s natural that you want to cement your relationship with a stunning diamond engagement ring. But where to start? Well here are some basics:
- • Everyone talks about the 4 Cs, but we start with a 5th – Conflict Free! The diamond industry has a dark side that, fortunately, has been increasingly exposed. We sidestep the human and environmental exploitation and greed of many mines by sourcing our diamonds exclusively from Canadamark, where they “cut diamonds, not corners.” Canadamark responsibly mines its diamonds in Canada’s Northwest with great attention paid to both the environment and to host communities.

- • Your budget is your budget! Diamonds literally come in all shapes and sizes and there is most certainly one that will fit your budget and delight your partner. Ignore all the noise and own your budget.
- • While diamonds rule the roost, the setting is not to be ignored as it showcases the stone or stones in full glory. No matter your style – classic, flashy or unable to stay between the lines – there’s a setting to delight you.
