Embee Diamonds in Prince Albert has partnered with African Diamonds for Development (ADFD) to bring precious stones to the international market in an ethical way.
ADFD, a Calgary-based, is several weeks away from starting production in the Kasai-Oriental province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
Michael Botha is well-known in the diamond community for his Sirius Star design, which will be used to shape the rough stones from the Congo. The Botha family have invested in the former Bank of Montreal building where they have completed major renovations.
Congratulations Michael Botha, Embee Diamond’s master diamond cutter and the Botha Family for bringing your vision and talents to Prince Albert's downtown. Watch this enterprise as it brings in more diamond cutters and in the future invites the public to view their operations.
