Celebrate Canada’s 150th!

On July 1st we celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday!

Even though Canada is celebrating 150 years, the diamond industry is relatively new. Although Canada is the 3rd largest diamond producing country in the world the discovery of diamonds only happened in the early 1990s.

Canadian diamonds are defined as, ‘diamonds that have been mined in any one of the major provinces and territories of Canada’. In Canada there are 6 current mines that are operational.

Canadian diamonds are special within the diamond industry because of the emphasis placed on them as an alternative to the blood diamonds mined in Africa. It was Canada who was the main supporter of the Kimberly process, which was a certification that was created in 2000 to help discourage the trade of conflict diamonds.

Canadian diamonds are also important because they have created a booming mining industry for Canadians. The diamond industry adds greatly to the Canadian economy, which is a great reason to always choose Canadian diamonds!

All Canadian mines are regulated by the Canadian Mining Regulations for the Northwest Territories, and they ensure of the preservation of surrounding land and aquatics habitats. Ethically, Canadian diamonds are one of the best choicest when choosing your jewellery or custom pieces.

So, to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday come on down to Ringleader Jewellers and checkout our limited edition Canada 150 pendants, or come by and create a custom piece using Canadian diamonds!

We can’t wait to see you and celebrate Canada’s 150th!

Father’s Day 2017

Your dad is your forever-best friend and with Father’s Day quickly approaching it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to get dad for his special day.

The misconception that most people make is that jewellery is just for women, but jewellery has no gender rules. Men’s jewellery is full of statement pieces and small details. From bracelets to rings to watches and cuff links men’s jewellery is it’s own category completely.

So, with Father’s Day on June 18th why not surprise dad with something special he can wear to work, every day or special occasions?

I remember in elementary school we made Father’s Day presents in art class. During recess I picked the biggest, brightest rock I could find and painted “Dad, you rock don’t ever change”. To this day my dad still has that messily painted rocked on his bedside table. They are so easy to place because they truly, genuinely love anything you do for them.

It’s the little things that dad’s do that make them so special. They are your loudest supporter on the sidelines and your number one fan on the bench. Dads make the bad days better with their “dad jokes” and quirky laughs.

I always want to spoil my dad after all the post-soccer game ice-cream’s and long drives to middle of nowhere fields.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to show your dad how much you love and appreciate him. With the cost of gold rising there are some alternatives, such as bracelets comprised of leather and stainless steel, silver and even black diamonds! All of which are very affordable, handsome and the perfect gift for Father’s Day.


Maybe your dad is more laidback and likes the simple things. A gold, silver or stainless chain is a perfect everyday piece and the perfect for dad’s who prefer a beer to fancy champagne.

You could even customize the chain; buy a dog tag to go with it, or even an initial. Your dad can wear it tucked away in his shirt for only him to see, but the feeling of that chain will always remind him of your love and your appreciation for everything that he has done for you.


Maybe your dad is a dress-up for work every day kind of guy. Why not go with a brand new pair of cufflinks? You can customize them to ensure that they are perfect for your dad. He can show off his present to all his co-workers and be the dad that all the other dad’s envy at the office.


The thing with dads is that they are all so different, yet extremely similar. Maybe yours likes fishing and beer, maybe he’s stuck in the 80s or maybe he’s a summer grill master. Dads come in all shapes and sizes, literally, but they all have the biggest hearts.

Father’s Day is a celebration of all the awkward moments that dads have had to endure, kind of like that first time he found your bra in the laundry. Father’s Day is about all the times you had to wipe away tears after laughing so hard from one of his jokes. Father’s Day is for all the soccer games he never missed, the new skates he careful laced up and the broken garage doors from hockey pucks that he had to fix. Father’s Day is more than just a day; it’s a date to thank your dad for being the best coach in life and on the field.

Before June 18th come on down to Ringleader Jewellers and pick something special out for dad. We’ll help you find something that encompasses everything that it means to be a father.
