DIAMONDS ARE INDEED A GAL’S BEST FRIEND

ESPECIALLY AT A BIRKS BASH PREMIERING QUEBEC DIAMONDS

It was a decidedly sparkly soirée, hosted by the bling bosses at Canadian luxury emporium, Birks, at their downtown flagship, in honour of a historic preview of the first 100 Quebec certified diamonds from the Renard Mine (Stornoway).

Diamonds baby! The crowd, bubbly, apps and yes, home-grown carats, were top-tier.

‘Course they were. Birks, people! For the full-on Diary exclusive, keep scrolling.
