Design Statement

The “Canoe” necklace is inspired by the poetic image of a magical Canadian landscape and its pristine white winters. A snow covered Canoe in a frozen, crystalline lake. The necklace comes together with two diamond-studded links embracing the neck that represent the fluidity of a lake. Irregular intersecting lines, studded with ideal square-cut diamonds characterize chunks of floating ice. The necklace culminates into a canoe-shaped element with an angled faceted interior.


”Celebrating the magic and beauty of Canada, my home, is the inspiration for my design. Canoe is a carrier of Canadian myths, a symbol very unique to Canada that represents voyage, harmony with nature, discovery and courage. It is one of the greatest gifts the First Nations people gave to all those who came after. A crystalline perspective, this necklace hopes to capture the luminous magic of the True North.” – Reena Ahluwalia.


Lugaro Jewellers is the largest purveyor of Canadian diamonds, the diamonds that are mined, cut and polished in Canada. “What better way to demonstrate the beauty and history of Canadian diamonds than with a piece inspired by the First Nations heritage? We are honoured to showcase this pristine piece in our stores”, says Steve Agopian, President of Lugaro Jewellers.
