I'm Laurie Wickwire, the Canadian Diamond guest, and I'm so happy that Canadian Diamonds are coming to QVC this Saturday at 2pm.
Wow, Canada. When I think of my neighbouring country (I'm from America), my mind is immediately drawn to the rugged beauty of the country. I recall as a child my family travelled from Texas to Canada in our family camper for a summer of exploration in 1972. I will always remember the vivid blue skies, the deepest of green in the trees, the white water capped raging rivers… everything exploding in colour.
So it's not surprising to me at all that Canada now produces some of the most beautiful and highest quality diamonds in the world today. With the recent find of diamonds in 1991, Canada has quickly secured the rank as the 3rd most productive diamond mining country.
I am so excited to be involved with this new QVC venture, as Canadian diamonds are known in the industry as being high quality. I had an opportunity to view the new line and couldn’t pull myself away from them!! As a certified diamond grader, I welcomed the opportunity to view each perfectly crafted piece, with magnificent larger diamonds dominating the designs.
I really adore the tiny maple leaf engraved on each piece, a natural symbol of this lovely land. I look forward to discovering what you think of this new luxury jewellery range.
Hope you are able to spare an hour this Saturday 15th May at 2pm, see you then!
