William and Catherine presented with Canadian diamonds

The Duke and Duchess were gifted the jewellery – which was crafted from diamonds mined in the Diavik Diamond Mine in the Northwest Territories, and reportedly took 250 hours to make – by territory premier Floyd Roland in the city of Yellowknife yesterday. Both pieces were created by mining giant Harry Winston in a polar bear design intended to resemble the emblem of the 500,000-square mile territory.
