Our Mission

Waldman Diamond Canada Ltd. (est. 2004) is a reputable source for all your mined and lab grown diamond needs.

Our commitment is to provide outstanding service and reliable resources to support your retail, goldsmithing or jewellery design business. Our greatest strength is in stocking high quality, ethically sourced and properly graded diamonds.

Our Story

Waldman Diamond Canada Ltd. was established in 2004 in Vancouver, Canada, by Craig de Gruchy and Neil Matkin, two seasoned diamantaires with over 30 years of experience in the Canadian wholesale diamond trade.

Over the years and with great success, they have come to build a thriving diamond supply company for the North American jewellery trade; one that is driven by virtue, excellence and servitude to its steadily growing client base across Canada.

Proudly and with distinction, Neil Matkin retired on Dec 31, 2015, leaving Craig and his dedicated team to carry on the tradition of supplying exceptional service and quality diamonds to their trusted retail, independent designer and goldsmith partners.

Our Diamonds

Waldman Diamond Canada Ltd. sources beautiful diamonds from the major centres of the global diamond trade: Antwerp, Tel Aviv, Mumbai and New York. Each diamond is personally and meticulously inspected for colour, cut and clarity by our gemological team and each diamond is accompanied with either a GIA or AGS lab certificate.

Trademarked Canadian origin diamonds, Arctic Love Diamond™, are sourced from rough from the Ekati and Diavik diamond mines in the Northwest Territories. They are carefully selected and hand crafted... making Arctic Love Diamonds some of the most beautiful in the world!

Arctic Love Canadian Origin Diamonds

We are very proud of the brilliant northern diamonds we offer. Originating from the Ekati and Diavik diamond mines in the Northwest Territories, a Canadian Arctic Love Diamond™ is carefully selected and cut with precision to the world’s highest standards. We examine the colour, clarity, cut and carat weight of the diamonds utilizing the most sophisticated instruments available, ensuring that they are authentic and uniquely mined in Canada’s Arctic.

An Arctic Love Diamond™ is one hundred percent (100%) natural, free of all treatments and conflicts and laser engraved with the Arctic Love symbol identifying its place of origin. Only a diamond created with such passion, will be enjoyed with heart-warming emotion for eternity.

From Our President

“As a first generation, non-family business, Waldman Diamond Canada Ltd. was built stone by stone over the past eighteen years. In that span of time we have become a respectable source of superior quality Canadian and non-Canadian diamonds that is able to consistently meet our customers’ diverse requirements. At the same time, we have defined ourselves by our integrity, never sacrificing this core value as the company forges ahead.

We view our role in the diamond industry as more than the day-to-day trading of diamonds. We view our customers, our suppliers and ourselves as links in a chain, all interrelated and all working in unison to become stronger and more together. We are the bridge between the mining community and the retailer, all stakeholders with a common interest.

It is our mission to become the preferred diamond supplier. Our uniquely qualified management team has been hand-picked for their expertise in their respective areas, as well as for the ability to actualize the principles on which the company is founded.”
