The Ikuma Diamond: Fire and Ice

Formed millions of years ago in Canada’s Northern Territories, Ikuma

diamonds are named after the Inuit word for fire, a stark contrast to

the frozen landscape in which they are found. Only in the last few

decades have scientists discovered that Canada is home to some of the

largest diamond deposits in the world. These sources of diamonds have

been unearthed carefully and painstakingly to protect the integrity of

the land, the sanctity of the environmental habitats, and the native

communities surrounding them.

“We developed the Ikuma brand over a decade ago to reinforce our

commitment to offering the most beautiful and ethically sourced diamonds

to our customers,” said Lisa Bridge, vice president of education, Ben

Bridge Jeweler. “We are thrilled to unveil our exclusive collection in

celebration of the Ikuma diamond and the uniqueness of each couple’s
