SAURO Rotante Octangonal diamond ring, sz. 9, 9.6gr. 0.16ct. tw. VS-G $1,600.00 CAD. e13705

Within this industry it is rather unusual to come across a retailer that sells nothing but men’s jewellery. Men have been consistently pigeonholed into a small number of universally “acceptable” jewellery items. With only nich groups extending outside of those normal parameters. Over the last 5 years standards have drastically changed for men. Inspired by the expanding fashion choices, grooming options (how many different ways can one wear a beard?), and general increase in awareness about image, men have found themselves inside a fashion industry that is paying attention to what they want for once. As we find ourselves within the Downtown’s Barber Borough I think we can attest to the booming industry that’s revolving around this newly important male image. So it is no surprise that there should be a burgeoning industry of retail jewellery stores for men. Sauro is just such a store. The high end Italian based retailer is a mainstay in Toronto, offering a range of bold and luxury designs to suite any man’s tastes. This ring from their Rotante Octagonal collection is a fantastic introduction to the brand. Solidly constructed from top quality 18 karat white gold the ring is actually constructed of four rings. Three have been built into an open frame allowing the fourth to spin independently, a subtle and grown up solution to those awful fidget spinners. That spinning ring features the brand’s name deeply engraved between flush set diamonds. Each front and back facing corner of the main ring likewise features a diamond, for a total weight of 0.16 carats of top quality VS-G round brilliant cuts. The ring weighs in at a heft 9.6 grams despite its relatively narrow 4.7mm width. It measures a finger size 9 and is estate priced for $1,600.00 CAD. Stock #e13705.

BVLGARI B.ZERO1 hinged bracelet 18kt. & stainless steel $1,505.00 CAD.e13706

Booked as an “unapologetic rule-breaker, B.ZERO1 blazes a new trail with audacity and bravery.” BVLGARI B.zero1 line is the typical level of high fashion, bold designs you’d expect from the Italian power house. Our particular example is one of their heavyweight bangles in stainless steel and 18 karat yellow gold. The current offering of bangles is a mix of gold and titanium, bypassing this earlier iteration but keeping the exact same motifs and design. Ours measures 7.0mm wide by 5.2mm thick, announcing its presence during wear. BVLGARI is deeply stamped on both sides of the bangle and patterned with a matte sandblast to ensure it stands out. The hinged bangle is equipped with a double locking button release clasp. For added peace of mind, both buttons need to be pressed simultaneously to release the catch ensuring no accidental openings. The current line can be viewed here. From our research, ours would have had an original retail price of around $3,500.00 CAD. Our estate price for this like new example including its original travel pouch and pillow $1,505.00 CAD. Stock #e13706.

5mm, 10kt., 23 inch, hollow rope chain, 16.5 grams $840.00 CAD. e13699

Rope chains have always been popular and for good reason. When well made from decent weight tubing, they are silky smooth, long lasting, and give you a substantial look without breaking the bank. This 23 inch example has been constructed from over 1/2 an ounce of 10 karat yellow gold with a large, easy to use sturdy lobster clasp. While it is hollow, it isn’t weak. Try to avoid rope chains that have been constructed from ultra light tubing. The super light stuff doesn’t stand up to daily wear and tear. Keep them clean and a quality hollow necklace like this will last for decades. This example is in excellent condition showing very minor evidence use but no stretched, or worn sections.

1/10 ounce Krugerrand coin ring 12.6gr. 10 karat $753.00 CAD. e12169

The Krugerrand was first minted in 1967 as an effort to draw attention to South African gold mining. It worked! By 1980, the year this 1/10 ounce was minted, the Krugerrand represented 90% of the global gold coin market. To date over 50 million ounces of gold Krugerrand coins have been sold worldwide. The coin is most noted for the Springbok antelope, that iconic leaping herbivore that instantly comes to mind when you think South Africa. The 22 karat gold coin contains 1/10 oz. of pure gold. Bezel set proudly on top of the 10 karat yellow gold gents ring, it’s sure to be a great conversation piece. The 12.7 gram ring is all high polish and rolled edges, keeping the attention on the coin it carries. Currently it measures a finger size 9 with room to adjust. Estate price $753.00 CAD.

10kt. figaro link bracelet 8 1/2″ 17.3gr. never worn $910.00 CAD. e11585

Solid construction and never worn. One of the most popular styles for necklaces and bracelets is the Figaro link design. This bracelet takes the design a step further with a beveled edge and concave profile centre section. The beveled edge gives it some twinkle and the concave middle saves some weight while resisting scratches. The 18 karat plate finish gives the domestically made solid 10 karat gold a distinctly rich imported 18 karat Italian look for 1/2 the price. This never worn bracelet still displays sharp crisp edges and only extremely minor evidence of shop wear. The bracelet is secured by a large heavy duty lobster clasp. 8 1/2 inches long, 8.5mm wide, weighing 17.3 grams and estate priced at only $910.00 CAD. Stock #e11585.

24″ Nautical link necklace 14kt., 5.4mm, 14.7gr. Italian made $1,260.00 CAD. e13667

If you aren’t familiar with the nautical link chain it would probably strike you as someone aiming for a Gucci link but trying to avoid a cease and desist order. We promise the nautical link is it’s own category, dropping the puffiness in favour of airy smoothness. Our example is 5.4mm wide by 24 inches long. A problem a lot guys find with a 20 inch or sometimes 22 inch (depending on the person’s build) chain is that it will shift in and out of the shirt collar during wear. A longer length like this one ensures it will stay where you put it, whether over your shirt or worn against the chest. This warm 14 karat yellow gold example is a hollow construction but still weighs in at 14.7 grams, a testament to its Italian craftsmanship. The chain is fastened with a large lobster clasp for easy closure. Estate priced at $1,260.00 CAD. Stock #e13667.


18kt. orange sapphire & diamond ring 3.76ct. tw. 8.62gr. $3,360.00 CAD. e12008

Sapphire is the best choice if colour is what you are after. It’s the hardest gemstone second only to diamond and comes in almost every colour of the rainbow. That said few people know of sapphires other colours, unfortunate because they are some of the most vibrant tones in the natural gemstone palette. The 2.80 carat oval faceted sapphire at the heart of this gents ring is a deep, almost burnt orange tone. Its blazing tone is made more brilliant surrounded by the contrasting cuts of baguette and round brilliant diamonds. All 38 diamonds are of high VS-GH (average) quality and have been accented with bright rhodium. The ring itself is made from extra warm premium 18 karat yellow gold and currently measures a finger size 7 1/4 with room to adjust. The ring is accompanied by a Greg Taylor Jewellery Appraisal (January 2018) stating a retail value of $6,350.00 along with Inter Gem Laboratory identification card (Nov. 2017). We feel $4,800.00 is a more realistic replacement value. The ring looks unworn and is in excellent condition. We have this one of a kind gent’s ring estate priced at 3,360.00 CAD. Stock number e12008.

14kt. patterened curb link bracelet 24.5 grams 8 1/4″ $1,680.00 CAD. e12302

The question mark is for the pattern that decorates this hefty curb link bracelet, we’ve not encountered it before. Something like a stylized tire tread perhaps? Regardless of how you interpret the pattern the eight inch long bracelet is very well made. Of course it is, being made in Italy! The 8 inch long bracelet was cast using higher quality 14 karat yellow gold, weighs in at 24.5 grams and measures 9.5mm wide, a testament all by itself. It is in like new condition and has been equipped with over sized high polished end caps and lobster catch. Previously owned and priced at just $1,680.00 CAD. Stock #e12302.

Gents platinum wedding ring 6mm, 16.1gr., Canadian made IRSCO $1,200.00 CAD. e13660

Oddly enough Canada is the fourth largest supplier of platinum in the world, with the largest producing mine in Sudbury of all places. Meaning the chances are high that this Canadian made band might contain Canadian platinum. The 6mm wide band features platinum’s distinct density, weighing a surprisingly hefty 16.1 grams. The notoriously hard to refinish metal has held onto some of its deeper dents and dings despite our best efforts. At a glance it looks brand new, and judging by the gents rings we see in for repair it will soon be covered in new scratches and dents after it leaves the showcase! If durability is what you’re after you really can’t top platinum. Unlike alternative metals it can be refinished (with effort), it can be resized, and most importantly cut off in an emergency. Unlike gold when platinum gets scratched, on a molecular level, you usually don’t remove any particles but simply push them out of place. So this band will last many generations, where a gold band will last one or two. Estate price for this heirloom to be $,1200.00 CAD. Stock #e13660.

Gents ring 10kt. 10.3gr. 1.12ct. SI-I1-I antique European cut diamonds $2,100.00 CAD. e12087

This 10 karat gents ring is covered in the little details that indicate hand made craftsmanship. The deep and intricate engraved patterns are not perfectly matched as they would be if this had been made on a computer. The goldsmith actually went to the effort of flipping the pattern from one shoulder to the other, upping the ante on the skill involved. Following the old world feel of the shoulders the ring has been set with antique old European and Swiss cut diamonds. The estimated 1.12 carats of SI-I1-I diamonds show off their age at a glance. These old styles of cut create more rainbow spectral flashes compared to modern round brilliant cut diamonds and create larger reflections as the crown facets are fewer (with Swiss cuts) and are larger with European cuts. They’ve been set into a heavy white gold plate engraved into a six pointed star. The 10.3 gram ring measures a finger size 10 with some room to adjust up or down. Estate price $2,100.00 CAD.

We’ve been proud partners of Canadian company CrownRing for many years. The Montreal based jewellery manufacturer has always gone well out of their way to meet our needs and the needs of our customers. In the last couple of years, they’ve stepped up their presence in the industry, launching sculptor-turned-goldsmith Noam Carver, who’s quickly gained attention for his award winning designs. They stand behind their product and, thanks to their quality manufacturing, lifetime warranty and we do too. This is a perfect example of the calibre of their work. Measuring 8mm wide and 1.75mm thick the band finds room for a softly comfort fit interior; something many new grooms appreciate as they try to get used to wearing a ring. The 12 gram ring is cast from top quality 18 karat white gold and currently measures its original finger size 8 3/4, with plenty of room to adjust. Each CrownRing has a unique serial number engraved inside the band allowing them to track the production sizing history of each ring. This is a currently available item from CrownRing and carries a suggested retail price of $3704.00 CAD. As it required a mild in-house refinishing and shows a couple of minor scuffs we’ve given the band an estate price of just $1,295.00 CAD. Stock #e13780

10kt. 22 inch white gold necklace 67.5 grams $2,940.00 CAD. e12691

Heavy white gold chains are few and far between. In 61 years of business we’ve probably had less than a dozen of them. This is certainly one of the most impressive! Weighing 67.5 grams of 10 karat white gold your Traps will get bodybuilder big without any extra effort on your part. The entire 22 inches of the chain retain its original chromy white rhodium finish. Measuring 8.65mm wide and equipped with an oversized lobster clasp and sturdy end caps, the chain is statement making and secure.

This puffy Gucci link chain is in brand new condition, looking like it hasn’t been worn at all. The solidly constructed 5.2mm wide links are actually two parts in one, being cast as pairs instead of individual connector links. This innovative design cuts the moving parts in half, reducing the potential wear on the chain. The chain is 22 inches long and weighs in at 23.4 grams in 14 karat yellow gold. Estate price for the like new chain $2,100.00 CAD. Stock #e13502.


Custom made gents diamond ring 1.82ct.tw. VS-G, 17.4gr. platinum, sz.10 1/2. $4,200.00 CAD. e13656

Yet another example of a high quality gents band; proof that though men are often overlooked in this industry they aren’t always forgotten. If you are feeling neglected this custom made gents band is the best remedy. The extra dense quality of platinum makes this ring much heftier than you’d expect considering its 6.84mm width and 2.30mm thick. The ring weighs in at an impressive 17.4 grams and features a stepped edge to make it more comfortable between the fingers. The ring is more than half set with diamonds in a deep protective channel. The well matched 12 round brilliant cuts come together to equal 1.82 carats total weight of high VS-G quality. The band currently measures a finger size 10 1/2 with some room to adjust.

14 karat custom made cross 7.6 grams $560. CAD. e10040

e10041-14-karat-custom-cross-pendantMany people only consider custom making a piece of jewellery when shopping for a unique engagement ring or wedding band, but custom work can be any number of pieces. Some of the most rewarding pieces we make start with a customer’s simple sketch on a scrap of paper. As our customers are not professionally trained jewellery illustrators the sketch rarely reflects the image they see in their heads. Our goldsmiths and designers work with them to flush out their design and the results are just as thrilling for us as they are for our customer. This 60.0mm long by 38.6mm wide Celtic inspired cross was a spare in a series we made and was subsequently traded back making it a brand new, never worn addition to our estate department. A welcome addition as the 7.6 gram 14 karat yellow gold cross is very well made (if we do say so ourselves), equipped with a substantial bale strong enough to last a lifetime of constant wear.

10kt. 22″ nautical link chain 10.3mm wide 91.8gr. $4,410.00 CAD. e13547

 

If you are ever in a jam and need a chain to tow your boat this nautical link example is almost up to the task. Not only does it have an appropriate name it has the size and strength that would leave almost any others stretched or broken. This is the biggest nautical link I can remember coming through our estate department. 10.3mm wide, 3.0mm thick, and just over 22 inches in length are pretty hard to miss. The necklace weighs just shy of 3 troy ounces at 91.8 grams. The key to the strength of nautical chains is the connecting bar running from side to side on each link. Not only does the bar add visual interest by filling in some open space, but it also keeps the links from elongating and stretching should an extreme force pull on it. The chain is equipped with an oversized, easy to operate, rivetted lobster clasp. Looking practically unworn and in perfect condition. Only an ultrasonic cleaning was required to prepare it for sale. Hardly a scratch can be seen on any of its 48 links, even the chain ends that suffer the most stress look like new. It comes with an August 2018 certificate on Evaluation stating a Retail Replacement Value of $15,000.00 plus sales tax. Our opinion of a more competitive replacement value is more like $6,000.00 to $7,000.00 even with gold priced close to 50% more today compared to the summer of 2018. When shopping for jewellery NEVER rely on the opinion of these optimistic appraisals. Get a reliable opinion of a competitive replacement value and an iron-clad refund policy if the item is not valued as described. As a like new estate item our price of just $4,410.00 offers outstanding value, we guarantee it and offer a 100% refund in you do not. Stock #e13547.

18kt. 24 inch nautical link necklace 25.4gr. $2,400.00 CAD. e11425

Sure $2,400.00 is a lot of money, but here’s an interesting way to consider the type of value this necklace offers. If you bought a new car today for $40,000.00 and keep it until there is nothing left but a little bit of paint between the rust and it’s totally used up, it will likely be worth around $400.00 ($200.00 per ton). Compare that to this chain. Keep it clean, wear it every day and it should easily last many decades. If the price of gold doesn’t change from $2,580.00 per ounce (August 14th 2020) Canadian it will still be worth close to 4 times that of what your once $40,000.00 car is now worth as scrap metal. Even if you run this chain over with a train it still contains around $1580.00 worth of fine gold (not to mention some fine silver too). I know you can’t drive your chain to Florida for a family vacation or to pick up the groceries with it. What it can do is help you feel good and look good. Feeling positive can have an amazing affect on your health and almost every other aspect of you life. That’s really the best part of wearing a great piece of jewellery. This 18 karat nautical link necklace is in like new condition showing no wear of any kind. At 24 inches in length it will fit even the largest gentleman with room to spare. We could take 7 inches out and make a bracelet for the lady who wants a matching set. You’ll appreciate the quality once you feel the heft of the solid link construction. Suitable for use with any style of pendant or it can be worn alone. Secured by a large and easy to use lobster clasp. Estate priced at $2,400.00 CAD. Stock #e11425.

14kt. 26″ hollow box link necklace 2.9mm wide, 15.4gr. $1,120.00 CAD. e13345

Hollow chains are a more affordable option to traditional solid link desings and will last practically as long if you take proper care with it. Most of these chains are electroformed, a process of electroplating layer after layer of gold onto a base metal core. Once the desired wall thickness is reached the core is dissolved away in an acid bath. This process allows almost any chain style to be duplicated in a hollow form but the hollow box chain is one we rarely encounter. As the box link is usually rather compact and petite it is odd to see a manufacturer produce a hollow version of the typically thin and inexpensive design. The motivation here was probably the 24 inch length, higher purity 14 karat yellow gold alloy and its unusually large 2.9mm x 2.9mm dimensions. The 15.4 gram chain is in like new condition showing no stretch of wear of any kind. The care required with this chain is similar to the care we suggest for most chains; keep it clean, and avoid wearing it during sports or any kind of activity that could snag it. Not to suggest it is extremely fragile, with careful use this necklace will last decades. Estate price $1,120.00 CAD. Stock #e13345.

Nothing like a subtle shot of white gold to completely transform a chain. Built on a curb link design theory this fancy link creates a tight line of brightly shining, gently curving gold. The entire 20 1/2 inch chain has been grooved down the middle for even greater visual interest. At 4.4mm wide the chain can certainly stand its own. Made from an impressive 31.7 grams of top quality 18 karat with an over-sized 10 karat yellow gold lobster clasp. Estate price for this like new chain $3,080.00 CAD. Stock #e13519.

Gents 14kt. white gold bracelet 9.1mm wide, 8 1/2″, 32gr $2,380.00 CAD. e13222

An ever so slightly more decorative version of the traditional marine link, mixing things up with two bars per link instead of one. Yes it’s a bold move but fashion is for the brave. If you’re feeling up to the challenge this 9.1mm wide by 8 1/2 inch long bracelet is quite the statement. Partially due to its white gold nature, a rarely encountered gold colour in heavy gents pieces. Too bad as the contemporary tone stands out more during wear. This piece is solidly constructed from 32.1 grams of 14 karat white gold that retains most of its original chromy rhodium finish. The clasp is a sleek hinged lobster clasp that locks into a sturdy stylized end cap. Estate price for this like new piece $2,380.00 CAD. Stock #e13222.

There seems to be a void in men’s ring styles, jumping from nice diamond wedding bands right to heavily adorned statement rings. In between those two categories there should be more rings like this one. Made striking not by busy details but by simple stark contrast between smooth high polished yellow gold, glossy black onyx and a bright shinning diamond set into white gold. It was also made to last, employing sturdy bezel settings holding the high quality VS-J 0.34 carat round brilliant cut diamond and 16mm by 12mm smooth black oval onyx. Made from solid 14 karat yellow gold weighing 11.30 grams the ring is of heirloom quality. It’s currently a finger size 11 1/4 with room for some sizing.

Scott Kay platinum ring 14.0gr. 6.0mm size 10 1/2 $1,250.00 CAD. e12121

There is an endless circular debate in the jewellery industry about which metal is superior for the consumer, platinum or 18 karat white gold. When you’re discussing engagement rings the scales are pretty even. Each has benefits to counteract their shortcomings, platinum is more durable but more expensive. 18 karat white gold prongs need to be rebuilt more often but the repair is half the cost of a platinum retipping. If you are looking to create a heirloom that your children can pass down to their children platinum is certainly the only option. If you want to spend less upfront, 18 karat white gold is the way to go. When you get to something as substantial as this Scott Kay gents band there is something else to consider. With a broad plain surface area and men being prone to wearing their rings during activities they shouldn’t, rings can end up showing a lot of wear. On a microscopic level platinum differs from gold when and how it gets scratched. A scratch on gold is often caused by gold being removed; when platinum is scratched the material mostly gets pushed away. Platinum sticks to itself like no other precious metal, making it more difficult to remove material, allowing it to last for generations. This principle also makes it very difficult to refinish as it holds on to any deep scratches and dents that could easily be removed in gold. Though this 13.9 gram, size 10 1/2 ring has been lightly polished it does show evidence of previous wear and tear. A full restoration could easily be accomplished by one of our onsite goldsmiths but about a gram of platinum would be lost in the process. We’ll leave the complimentary full restoration option open should you decide to make it perfect. You can’t go wrong considering it’s half of the original retail price. You get a premium platinum band from a high end designer for the price of white gold. Estate price $1,250.00 CAD. Stock #e12121.

Modern jewellery manufacturing technology when used to the extreme is capable of producing some truly impressive looking items that simply will not last. Large hollow earrings and bracelets can be made so thin they have almost no resistance to dents and can easily be torn like paper. While this 18 karat gold necklace is by the strictest of definition hollow the gauge is quite thick. With a weight of over 20 grams you still notice the quality. 20 inches in length will allow the 7mm wide chain to just be seen around the average gentleman’s neck with a button or two open on a dress shirt. Italian manufacture from premium material with a guarantee of many decades of use if sensibly worn and kept clean. A large easy to manipulate lobster clasp provides a secure catch. The necklace is in like new condition showing no wear in any of the close to 100 links. Estate priced at $2,205.00 CAD. e12427.

It’s hard to say how old it is because this style is still in production today by many manufactures. The cushion shaped black onyx is in perfect condition not showing any scuffs or scratches. A small bezel set 0.10 carat in the centre twinkles like a star in a midnight sky. The ring is made from over 10 grams of highly polished 14 karat yellow gold.

e9949-7-5mm-moissanite-gents-ring-14-karat

Synthetic moissanite has occasionally been used as a diamond substitute for a  couple of years now. We come across this unusual mineral once in a while but this is the first time we’ve seen it in a gents ring. For those of you who aren’t up on the trend, moissanite is a man made gem that was introduced in 1998. It’s actually a decent alternative to a diamond being the next hardest gemstone on the MOHS hardness scale, with similar optical properties. It actually displays slightly more dispersion than a diamond and tends to be a warmer colour; sitting somewhere around a K on the GIA diamond colour grading scale. This slight mild tint actually makes it a more convincing diamond substitute when compared to completely colourless cubic zirconia. Measuring 7.5mm in diameter the stone has been calculated to weigh approximately 1.35 carat. It’s an impressive looking centre piece, bezel set into a unique 20.1 gram, 14 karat white and yellow gold men’s ring. The extremely well made ring is one of the more modern looking and striking gents ring we’ve had come through our estate department. The ring is brightly polished and measures a finger size 11 1/2 with some room to go up or down. Estate priced at $1,950.00 CAD. Stock #e9949.e9949-moissanite-gents-ring-14-karat-7-5mm-diameter

0.52ct. I2-IJ gents diamond ring 10.3gr. 10kt. gold $1,400.00 CAD. e12338

Men’s jewellery throughout history has been focused almost entirely on displaying status. Different kinds of jewellery traditionally announced different things about the man that wore it. This trend died off for a while in the 40s and 50s as a man’s home and automobile became his main show of distinction. Oddly enough it was the rise in male dominated office culture that brought men’s jewellery back. The office became a battlefield where men vied for promotions and subsequent status. Luxury watches were the first representation of status increase and Rolex took on the slogan “A Crown For Every Achievement”. Soon men were using cuff links, tie tacs, tie bars, lapel pins and eventually rings, bracelets, and chains to show the world how well they were doing. We’ve taken a step in a more digital direction; now if you want to show people how well you’re doing you just post about it on Instagram. So men’s modern jewellery is more about self expression and style than boasting. But if you still want to brag a little this gents diamond ring is a good start! Set with one 0.52 carat round brilliant cut of I2-IJ quality the ring is flashy in an understated way. The more traditional yellow gold blends into the hand more than white gold would. It leaves the diamond in its white bright cut setting to be the focus. Weighing in at a substantial 10.3 grams, constructed of durable 10 karat the ring is more than adequate for daily wear. It measures a perfect size 10 and can be adjusted up or down a couple sizes. It looks like brand new, still retaining the factory applied finish with crisp sharp details. Estate price $1,400.00 CAD.

Gents 0.87ct. I1-LM diamond ring 7.6gr. 14kt. $1,960.00 CAD. e13268

If you want to cut costs on your diamond the best of the “4Cs” to compromise on is Colour. We’ve always felt that a warmer diamond has an almost antique appearance to it. Most people can’t tell warmth in a diamond unless they put it right against a colourless diamond and compare the tones. Alternately a low clarity grade or poor cut grade will drastically diminish the beauty and sparkle of the diamond. Colour lowers the price of a diamond but doesn’t reduce the diamonds ability to reflect and refract light. In this gents ring the LM colour is a slightly champagne tone that almost blends into the white gold backing. The effect is a subtle fire and brilliance that blends well into the broad ring top. The 0.87 carat I1 clarity round brilliant cut diamond has been securely six prong set into the 7.6 gram 14 karat white gold ring. Although the cut isn’t optimum, this diamond still does an admirable job and its 6.4mm diameter in the large frame will have everyone thinking it weighs at least 1 carat.

Vintage men’s jewellery is not something we often get to feature but this Birks ring from the 80s could not be passed up! It really epitomizes the decade with its low profile and broad high polished top. The ring does not play with contracting finishes like many gent’s rings. It uses reflective surfaces sliced into seven steps on each shoulder to draw the eye up towards the diamond pane top. The six white gold panels have been set with 0.20 carats of round brilliant cut VS-HI quality diamonds. Despite its 13.4mm width the ring manages to stay subtle thanks to its warm hue 14 karat yellow gold alloy that blends into the hand during wear.

28″ 18kt. box link necklace 2.65mm 14.6gr. $1,400.00 CAD. e13053

A solid box link is one of the strongest ways to build a chain. The individual links are not only evenly thick but they are also broad giving them more material across their connections. On top of that the interlocking box shape reduces each links range of motion. The more a link can move the more it grinds away itself and its neighbors. By reducing the range of motion and keeping the weight of the chain even and consistent the manufacturer is ensuring that this chain will have the longest lifespan possible. While not quite solid the heavy gauge hollow construction of this necklace is evident as soon as you pick it up. Beyond its durability this 14.6 gram box chain also measures a desirably long 28 inches rendering its clasp useless as it can slip right over your head. That clasp is an oversized spring ring with simple jump ring ends. To top it all off the chain is made from premium quality 18 karat yellow gold!

Gents platinum/18kt. gold diamond ring 0.20ct. tw. 22.5gr. $1,900.00 CAD. e11078

Typically a good quality men’s ring weighs around 7 grams and they are usually manufactured from 10 or 14 karat. This one is at least 3 times the average weight and was hand crafted from premium 18 karat yellow gold and super white platinum. 10 high quality VS-H diamonds circle the circumference adding just a little twinkle no matter which way the ring is facing. This ring was custom made in Canada by long time, upscale Toronto manufacturer Platinum Unlimited. Despite the overachieving weight of 22.5 grams the ring is super comfy. The uniform width of just under 10mm distributes the weight evenly around the entire ring and the gently rounded inside edges help to slide the ring over your knuckle. Made in the average gentleman’s finger size 10 this ring would make an impressive wedding ring or it could be a right hand ring. Highly polished 18 karat edges contrast the brushed platinum centre section in a manner very complimentary to many two tone watches. You’ll not see a ring of this quality from any off the shelf jeweller. Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers is not your typical jewellery store. We have 1000s of unique estate and new items for you to consider. If you have a size 10 finger you really should come in and try it on. You’ll never regret buying quality. This ring is estate priced at $1,900.00 CAD. Stock #e11078.

25 inch 10 karat Figaro link necklace 12.6 grams $660.00 CAD. e13528

In this business there is no hiding from the ever-increasing price of gold. The value of the precious yellow commodity has quadrupled over the past 15 years not to mention the weakness in the Canadian dollar. This combination makes purchasing even a reasonable weight, 10 karat gold necklaces expensive. Getting into 14 karat will cost 40% more; 18 karat will be 80% more expensive compared the same weight in 10 karat. Our estate, pre-owned and vintage jewellery is a great way to save a bunch of money and still get high quality. We tend to post the heavy, high karat chains but we also have many more affordable 10 karat examples that are sturdy but do not weigh several ounces. This is a great example of what you can expect to find on display at Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers. 10 karat yellow gold, Italian made, solid link construction, 25 inches long, 3.8mm wide and 12.6 grams. Priced at $660.00 this excellent condition chain represents a great value. Our estate chains are always in like new condition. If any show signs of more than the slightest amount of wear, stretch or signs of previous repair they get recycled. If you do not see what you are looking for online, give us a call.

Russian made 14kt. rose gold rings $50.00/gram 4.1 to 7.1 gr. each. e12114-e12117

From Russia with love come these 14 karat rose gold lady’s and gent’s rings. In North America we measure gold purity as a fraction of 24 parts, 24 karat gold is pure, 18 karat gold is 75% pure, 10 karat gold is 41.7% pure etc. In many countries gold purity is measured by a more logical method as a percentage of purity. In the case of these Russian rings 583 equals 58.3% gold purity or the equivalent of our 14 karat (14÷24=0.583). The rings measure 6.5mm to 10.1mm wide with finger sizes of 7, 9 and 13. If you have any question about their origin, one look at the classic hammer and sickle hallmark will leave little doubt where they were manufactured. The rings have been polished up like new and are ready to go. These rings are not the heaviest available but because they’re alloyed with a little more copper compared to traditional 14 karat yellow gold they are harder. The copper also gives it a lovely rose hue. These don’t show up very often, so if you think you’d like one don’t wait around. For just $50.00 per gram they are priced well below wholesale replacement cost. The two lady’s rings have an interesting diamond cut pattern that reflects the light when moved.

Try this two tone bracelet on and you’ll see why it’s so hard to capture in photos. The white gold rectangles that make the base for each fancy link have been polished to a bright mirror finish. Thanks to the curving design of their yellow gold connections, those mirrors flash blindingly at the slightest movement. As you’d expect of the Italian master goldsmiths the bracelet is made to that coveted wear-it-and-forget-about-it quality. Everything about it is solid and sturdy, weighing in at an appropriately heavy 31.5 grams of 10 karat gold. Suitable for a gentle man with an average sized wrist or any lady.

31 inch 18kt. hollow box link necklace 13.4gr. $1,100.00 CAD. e12177

Extra long necklaces are very much the trend but almost nobody stocks them. Gold is expensive and gold is priced by the gram, the longer the chain the heavier they become. Seeing a gold necklace longer than around 24 inches in a store is unusual. This 31 inch hollow construction box link chain is long enough to double up or wear over top even the bulkiest sweater. Box link chains are usually rather thin, they seldom exceed 1.75mm, this one is 2.2mm; more than large enough for use all on its own. Despite the hollow construction this necklace still weighs a substantial 13.4 grams. Crafted with pride from premium 18 karat gold. It’s in excellent condition, showing no wear on any links, no stretch and no previous repairs. We are very fussy about the quality of our estate chains. If any display even moderate wear or signs of repair, they go into our recycling. This statement making necklace is estate priced at only $1,100.00 CAD. Stock #e12177.

Leave it to the Italians to come up with a way to add new life into one of the most popular and traditional chain styles. The standard Figaro link has been around forever and is still a favorite design for men’s chains and bracelets. The short and long oval link pattern on this version has been modified with the addition of small white gold rectangular caps. The caps have been expertly soldered to both sides on all of the short oval links. It certainly adds to the complexity of manufacturing to the piece but the extra effect is worth it. This necklace needs no pendant as the chain itself is the centrepiece. At 20 inches total length the necklace is suitable for almost anyone. Woman will be able to wear it with an open neck blouse or over a light top. For most gentleman this chain would be visible with a button or two undone on a dress shirt. For large and extra large guys this chain may be just a little short. Made for premium quality 18 karat gold in Italy the solid link design weighs a significant 18.6 grams.

Another unique interpretation of the classic curb link bracelet, this time the links seem to resemble some manner of flattened basket weave. The compact weave gives a sleek geometric appearance disguising its durability by opting for large areas of contact instead of bulky joints. Meaning that despite its low profile this 8 1/4 inch bracelet will probably outlive its traditional linked peers. The 10.7mm wide bracelet is secured with an integrated figure eight clasp.

Enhanced coloured diamonds offer an inexpensive way to get a splash of contrasting colour in a ring without having to be careful wearing it.

14kt. gold Celtic knot wedding ring 7.0gr., size 9, 8mm wide $735.00 CAD. e13542

This Celtic knot ring appears to be hand made. The inner surfaces and pierced areas display a much rougher texture than the easy to access polished outside areas. Unless you have a highly finished model you can’t help getting a rougher finished casting. The outside is easy to smoothly finish and polish by hand, but those tiny nooks and crannies are impossible to access. Without advanced surface preparation and tumble polishing machines those sections are destined to have an unfinished texture. With many types of jewellery this may be an unintended and unwanted consequence, but the rustic nature of the Celtic knot pattern makes it more authentic and appropriate. Whether by design or fortunate accident this ring looks perfect. At 8mm wide it has good presents but its not overwhelming. The size 9 ring has a finished weigh of just over 7 grams, manufactured in good quality 14 karat yellow gold. This ring can be adjusted in size, but the continuous pattern will be disrupted if we add or remove a section to alter the size. Excellent condition and estate priced at $735.00 CAD. Stock #e13542.

Gent’s 10 karat black onyx Masonic ring 6.7gr. $420.00 CAD. e12305

North American Masonic Lodges are a bit different from their European counterparts. In Europe the members are rather hush hush about the whole thing and the jewellery they wear reflects that. The Masonic Square and Compass is often hidden in pieces of jewellery that collapse closed or invert to show a different image or gemstone to the general public. During meetings, the piece is adjusted to reveal the symbol. North American Masons wear their Square and Compass openly and often in the style depicted here. The glossy black onyx makes a bold backdrop to the gold leaf inlay. The ring itself is well made from 6.7 grams of 10 karat yellow gold and adds visual interest with the deeply grooved shoulders. We usually have one or two estate Masonic rings in stock, if we don’t have the one you’re after we do have a variety of options we can order in. Estate price $420.00 CAD. Stock #e12305.

6.0mm wide platinum wedding ring 10.6gr. size 9, $720.00 CAD. e13354

The first remark we get from men trying on wedding bands is how weird it feels to wear a ring. We assure them that in no time, you will not even notice you are wearing it. We can always suggest a light narrow ring with a low profile as an option. Of course, the problem with a band that is thinner in gauge is it will be less durable and long lasting; start with less metal and it will wear out faster. The solution is platinum. On a microscopic level, when you scratch gold you are peeling away a small portion of the metal. With platinum a scratch rarely removes material but simply pushes it away. Meaning even a band like this one that measures 1.65mm thick will last for generations. Platinum is also very dense so the 6mm wide band weighs in at a surprisingly hefty 10.4 grams. Currently a finger size 9 there is plenty of room to adjust as needed. Estate price $720.00 CAD. Stock #e13354.

Whoever designed this gents ring was aiming for maximum brilliance. The ring itself is a combination of highly polished curved surfaces creating an array of fun house style reflections. To intensify this display they’ve opted for contrast, by using rhodium enhanced white gold on top of warm yellow gold, and by balancing the high polish with a linear machine made matte finish. And all this before even thinking of the diamonds! The three rows have been graduated and backed with curving channels to reflect their brilliance back up to the wearer. The combined 1.00 carat total weight of bright I1-JK round brilliant cuts make for a head turning final touch on this 15.3mm wide gents ring.

The result is also practical as anyone who owns a figaro can tell you the long links like to twist themselves out of position during wear. Not only did the Italian chain makers opt to add metal they also cast the chain from top quality 18 karat yellow gold, bringing the total weight to 32.3 grams. The chain is finished with an oversized 14 karat lobster clasp for easy fastening. Estate price below its wholesale replacement cost at $2,400.00 CAD. Stock #e13529.

BIRKS 10kt. vintage cufflinks 15.9 grams $980.00 CAD. e10453

Canada’s premier luxury jewellery chain BIRKS have never been known as a brand to push the design envelope. For well over 100 years they’ve produced high quality designs that were somewhat conservative and always thoughtful. Maybe in the 1970s these funky cuff links were just an artistic jewellery expression of the times. Looking back today I’d consider them quite progressive for a Canadian company like BIRKS even in the context of the funky 70s. The vintage look is back and these cuff links have that unmistakable vintage flair. These large 19mm x 19mm cuff links are ultra cool. 100% Canadian made. The fronts are constructed from a calculated 15.9 grams of 10 karat yellow gold, while the 12 karat gold filled spring loaded “T” bar backs were made by Cadman Jewellery in small town Courtland Ontario. The cuff links are embossed with a flat textured linen surface and those 3 highly polished geometric stars. They appear to pop from the background with a perfectly flat surface that acts like a golden mirror. The contrasting finish is an excellent example what makes gold such a versatile precious metal. Excellent condition, looking like brand new with sharp crisp edges and no signs of wear and tear. If you’ve got a few French cuff shirts at home that just don’t get worn enough, turn them up a notch with these 70s vibe cuff links. Total weight 20.3 grams. Estate price $980.00 CAD. Stock #e10453.

14kt. solid link rope chain 5.0mm, 26 inch, 46.1 grams $2,640.00 CAD. e13358

Gone are the days of $300.00 per ounce gold and gone are the days when you could walk into most jewellery stores and see something as well made as this. Pure gold now costs close to $2,500.00 per ounce (Canadian) and manufacturing something as heavy as this would require a retail price of more than $5,000.00 at a typical jewellery store. Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers is not your typical jewellery store and we do not stock average jewellery. Our vintage and estate items represent the best jewellery value on the market. This 5.0mm solid link rope necklace measures an extra long 26 inches making it suitable for anyone. It is in perfect condition, showing virtually no wear in the flexible joints and rings. Its solid construction reveals itself as soon as you hold it; there’s no mistaking the upgraded 14 karat gold and 46.1 gram weight. At today’s gold price this chain contains around $2,125.00 in only its recyclable gold content. It can be used with or without a pendant and the heavy-duty plunger clasp with side safety ensures extra security. The estate price of only $2,640.00 is far below its wholesale replacement value.

10 karat gold diamond & ruby trucker ring $1,440.00 CAD. e8231

e8231.2 truck ring ruby and diamondNow here’s a not too subtle lifestyle statement. Custom made for a gentleman in the 1960s. This trucker ring was his pride and joy for almost half a century. Now it’s time to find it a new home with someone who can continue the adventure for another million miles or more. The circular 10 karat yellow gold ring is a size 12.5 with a circular frame setting measuring 25mm diameter. A three dimensional Freightliner tractor cab is exploding out of the centre of the ring looking like it’s doing 60 miles an hour.e8231 tuck ring ruby and diamond When I look at this ring it’s hard not to smile and imagine the sense of pride the original owner had in it and his trusty 18 wheeler. I’m sure it was the nicest on the road. It took great a great amount of skill to assemble all the different little pieces of 10 karat yellow and white gold together then solder it all into the ring. 25 round faceted good quality rubies and diamonds are bead set in the frame adding approximately 0.50  carats of bling. Today this ring would be a very expensive custom project to produce. I hope it finds a great home with a man who takes pride in his work and is not afraid to express it.

20.5 inch, 18kt. curb link chain 29.9gr. Premet Italy $2,200.00 CAD. e13412

There is an inherent luxury to a well built chain, especially one of this more compact scale. That surprising heft when you lift the 4.8mm wide faceted curb chain is a guarantee of quality. That weight is due to the higher density of 18 karat gold. If this chain had been cast from the North American standard 10 karat gold (41.7% pure) instead of the premium 18 karat (75% pure) yellow gold it would be close to 25% lighter. The chain measures a more visible 20 1/2 inches long, guaranteeing it will be seen with most shirt collars. The solid 29.9 gram chain is secured with decorative end caps and a stylized heavyweight lobster clasp. The chain is of course Italian made and in like new condition. Estate price $2,200.00 CAD.

Heavy Cuban link 10 karat gold necklace, 26 inch, 86gr. $4,200.00 CAD. e12894

Gold is expensive and a good sized Cuban link requires a lot because these links are tightly packed, thick and solid. The chain measures 7.3mm wide and 2.7mm thick. With dimensions like that this necklace ends up weighing close to 3 ounces at 86 plus grams. A chain of this quality deserves a clasp that’s up to the task of securing a valuable piece of jewellery. The large over-sized plunger, box clasp comes equipped with 2 side safeties; it’s like wearing suspenders and a belt to keep your pants up. The chain is in like new condition showing no wear of any kind. We’ve had a few Cuban links come in over the years and they never last too long. They are really popular but the cost of purchasing a new one is sometimes a challenge. While not inexpensive our latest example is a great value, priced at only $4,200.00 CAD. Stock #e12894.

C3 Corvette pendant 5.6gr. 10kt. gold $285.00. e13357

Any vintage sports car fans out there? If you are, I bet you recognize the familiar outline of this vintage Corvette. The “C3” was the longest running style since the Corvette debuted in 1953. From 1968 through 1982 the swoopy body Stingray was America’s sports car. Lacking the buttresses over the rear fenders and domed rear window dates this particular C3 to the 1978-1982 model years. This is a well made sturdy little pendant cast from 10 karat yellow gold with a finished weight of just under 5.7 grams. It is equipped with an oversized bail that could fit over almost any chain or on a key ring. Cars guys can be exceedingly difficult to buy for. This little coupe would make a great gift. Perfect condition showing zero wear in the jump ring joint or where the chain runs through the bail. Stock #e13357

24 inch 14kt. cobra link necklace 14.7gr. UnoAerre Italy $960.00 CAD. e13411

It’s almost impossible to find a longer length, flat, sturdy necklace that’s built to last these days. It’s no wonder with the price of gold over $2,400.00 per ounce Canadian. Making this 14.7 gram necklace today  would be rather expensive. The vintage chain measures 2.6mm wide, 24 inches long and was likely manufactured in the 1970s when gold was worth just $150.00 per ounce. Flat chains today are made very thin, usually only a few 1/10ths of a millimeter thick or so. This cobra link is a full 1.2mm thick and is far more resistant to becoming kinked. Overall condition is excellent; the connecting jumprings are showing no worn areas and the links still display their sharp faceted edge. The geometric shaped links sparkle and reflect light in a broad flash traveling the length when worn. Made by one of the premier Italian manufacturers UnoAerro. Like new, ready to go with a closer to vintage price of $960.00 CAD. Stock #e13411.

18kt. 167.3gr. Cuban link gents chain 23 1/2″, 8.6mm wide $11,000.00 CAD. e13475

I can recall only one gents chain coming through our estate department that was heavier than this one. It was a 10 karat (41.7% pure) gold Cuban link weighing 204.2 grams containing around $6,630.00 in just raw gold value. While that chain was heavier, our latest estate Cuban link necklace is made from premium 18 karat (75% pure) gold with a total weight of 167.3 grams. As of today’s gold price this one contains $9,780.00 in just its gold content alone. A higher gold content means more mass, richer gold colour, higher resistance to tarnishing, chemical attack and corrosion. If you want a substantial chain that you can truly live in, a high quality, solid link design is what you should consider. A chain you want to wear constantly should be as heavy as it looks. Hollow chains are great because you get the look of a big bulky chain without the cost, but they don’t stand up to daily wear. A heavy chain can last a lifetime and it has the added bonus of retaining value like few other purchases can. Consider a depreciating asset such as a car. Even a good used one will cost you at least as much as this chain. Once you drive it off the lot there goes $2,000. 10-15 years from now when its not worth sinking more money into it and you send it to the scrap yard, maybe its recyclable value will cover the cost of the tow. If you ever decide to sell this chain, you can be confident it contains substantial value even if you just sell it for the gold content. You know what, it may even appreciate in price. The value of the gold used in the manufacture of this chain has doubled in 10 years. At 23 1/2 inches long you may just be able to slip it over your head without undoing the clasp. 8.6mm isn’t the widest chain on the market but at 3.5mm I think the weight is really concentrated resulting in a great feeling that only high karat gold can offer. With a chain of this value it’s nice to know the clasp is overbuilt. Large box clasp with white gold plunger offers a better locking spring than yellow gold. Two additional side safety catches plus a safety chain offer a triple failsafe closure system. The estate price of $11,000.00 is only around 12.5% more than the scrap recyclable value of the gold it contains. Our price is far below even the best wholesale cost to replace it with something new. The condition is perfect; it’s showing no stretch or worn sections in any of the links. Chains of this quality and size almost never show up. If you’re looking for a Cuban link of substantial value that may even turn out to be a good investment don’t wait too long on this one. Estate priced at $11,000.00 CAD. Stock #e13475.

14kt. curb link chain 21 1/2″ 19.3 grams $930.00 CAD. e12485

Another amazing value from the estate showcases at Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers. This 21 1/2 inch, 4.5mm necklace is in perfect condition showing no signs of wear and tear in any section or at the clasp. Upgraded 14 karat yellow gold offers superior protection against oxidization and corrosion. Even something as seemingly inert as perfume, soap and perspiration can have very destructive effects on lower quality gold. Solder joints in lower 10 karat gold can be prone to chemical attack becoming weak over time. You’ll never regret buying quality and you always appreciate the amazing value offered by the estate items at Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers. This 19.3 gram chain is priced at just $48.19 per gram, well below its wholesale replacement cost. Total price $930.00 CAD plus applicable sales tax. Stock #e12485.

14kt. 6.1gr. crucifix pendant & 10kt. 22.3gr. 24″ curb link necklace $1,680.00 CAD. e13221

The crucifix is of course a Christian symbol but since the 80s the symbol has slowly moved into the secular world of fashion. You don’t have to look very far to find examples of the symbol being worn for non-religious reasons. Take 2018’s Met Gala theme of Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. Whether you are looking for a symbol of devotion or fashion statement this 38mm x 27mm crucifix should do the trick. The 14 karat white gold pendant has been thoughtfully made, with the reverse side showing the wood grain of the cross, engraved in heavy relief. The oversized bail allow the piece to slide across most chains but it is currently strung on a 5.9mm wide curb link chain. The 24 inch long 10 karat white gold Italian made chain is secured with heavy end caps and a large lobster clasp. Both pendant and chain retain their original chromy rhodium plating as proof of their like new condition. Weighing in at a combined 28.4 grams and estate priced for $1680.00 CAD.

18kt. Cartier “Love” ring 8.6gr. size 9 1/2 B4084761 $1,232.00 CAD. e11978

The origins of iconic designs are often forgotten, we get so used to seeing them and the associated brands they belong to that we forget that they didn’t always exist. Mention Rolex and their elongated pointed crown comes to mind automatically. That symbol was chosen in 1908 as an embodiment of the company’s slogan “A Crown for every Achievement”. The same applies for the screw head from the Cartier LOVE line of jewellery. Originally introduced in 1969 as a bangle bracelet accompanied by a screw driver which was required to remove the bracelet. Though you can still purchase modern versions of the bangle, the screw head has moved into every manner of jewellery for Cartier. This 6mm wide statement band is a current offering from that collection. Made from 8.6 grams of 18 karat white gold currently measuring a finger size 9 1/2 the band is available new for $1770.00 US (or about $2240.00 CAD). Our estate version of model B4084761 is appropriately priced for $1232.00 CAD. Stock #e11978.

Italian made 24″ 6.8mm wide necklace 38.6gr. 18kt. $2,880.00 CAD. e12451

The best thing besides the beauty of Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers vintage jewellery is the quality and value it offers. Our estate pieces are meticulously scrutinized for defects, damage, signs of previous repair plus wear and tear. Unfortunately many of the estate items we receive do not pass our strict standards of quality and are immediately taken apart for salvage and or recycling. This process allows us to offer only the best in previously enjoyed jewellery, diamonds and watches. Weeding out the potentially troublesome items enables you to buy with confidence. Most times our vintage and estate items are as good as new, often made to higher standards and ALWAYS priced substantially less than new items of similar description. This “figure 8 link” chain is a great example of high quality and fantastic value. The 18 karat solid construction is head and shoulders above most of what’s manufactured now. Many chains today are manufactured ultra light and hollow in basic 10 karat. While they look great and are sometimes priced well they just don’t stand up to daily use and are not suitable for use with a pendant. Once they’re dented, stretched or broken they can’t easily be repaired and they never look the same. When all is said and done, “you’ll never regret buying quality”. While $2,880.00 isn’t a small sum of money; when priced at $74.61 per gram we know this necklace offers great value. Don’t believe us, call your favorite jeweller and ask what they sell their 18 karat chain for? You’ll get answers like, “I’m sorry but we don’t sell our chain by the gram” or “our chain is higher quality and imported so we can’t sell it by the gram”. They may say they don’t sell it by the gram but I guarantee they buy it by the gram. The best way to describe our latest estate chain is an “overlapping figure 8 link”. It’s in perfect condition showing no evidence of use. The large heavy duty lobster clasp offers ease of use with excellent security. At 6.8mm wide and 24 inches long it will fit anyone. All you need to know is $2,880.00, 18 karat gold, solid construction and 38.6 grams equals amazing value only Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers vintage jewellery can offer. Stock #e12451.

We have the privilege of having all manner of jewellery art pass through our estate department. Of all the horse carvings we’ve seen this is by far the best. The elegant and detailed bust is a masterpiece of carving. The one of a kind piece was obviously made to commemorate an individual horse. The unique star marking on the horses forehead has been captured in a 0.15 carat high quality VS-H marquise cut diamond. To finish off the graceful ring the bit and bridle have been crafted from bright white gold, a cool contrast to the warmer hue of 18 karat yellow gold. As with most hand made pieces the ring boasts a substantial 11.5 gram weight, a testament to its quality. Currently the ring measures a finger size 10 with some room to adjust up or down.

14kt. curb link chain 20 1/2″ 30.1 grams $1,450.00 CAD. e12484

The weak Canadian dollar has brought the price of gold to its highest level ever (at least in Canadian dollar terms). In U.S. dollars gold is still $400.00 away from matching its all time high. An estate chain like this not only looks great and is a good store of value, it protects your Canadian dollar against the effects of a weaking currency. We’re certainly not investment advisers at Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers but we do know the amazing value of our estate jewellery. For something like a simple gold chain like this the value is easy to see but impossible to match by other retailers. This Italian made chain is priced at just $48.17 per gram. That’s quite a bargain when you consider the gold content alone is worth over $37.00 per gram. Once you factor in the silver alloy costs, manufacturing costs, importation taxes, and wholesale/retail markups the price you could expect to see at your mall jewellery store is going to be 3 to 4 times the gold content value. Don’t believe us, just call any jeweller and ask how much their 14 karat Italian chain sells for per gram. If they are confident in the value they offer you may get an answer, otherwise they’re likely to say “ahhhh…. we do not price our chains by the gram”. Well they may not sell it by the gram but I 100% guarantee they buy it by the gram. We’re all about transparency at Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers, an informed customer is a happy repeat customer, confident in the value of any purchase from us. At only $1,450.00 CAD this necklace is priced at hundreds of dollars below its wholesale replacement cost. We have too many chains in stock to list online, give us a call or come in if you can. We’d love to demonstrate the excellent value our estate items have. This 20 1/2 inch chain is in like new condition and could be worn by a man or woman. The 30.1 gram weight and 4.8mm width are quite substantial, the 14 karat gold content offers superior resistance to chemical attack and corrosion compared to the North American 10 karat standard.

Dynamic gents rings are few and far between but always such a pleasure when they do turn up in our estate department. This one especially is made to that coveted ‘quality you can feel’ standard. Weighing in at a hefty 11.9 grams of warm 14 karat yellow gold you won’t easily forget you’re wearing the ring. The geometric, hard lined top draws attention by contrast to the perfect circle of brilliance suspended in the void. At a perfect 1/2 carat, eye clean SI1 clarity and I colour the diamond is well deserving of its seat. No surprise the ring is a one of a kind, custom made piece. It was manufactured back in 1992 but still looks just as fresh and modern today, a testament to its timeless design. This ring would certainly sell for much more than the original purchase price 26 years ago of $2300.00. Gold has more than tripled in cost since 1992. The like new ring comes with its original Ciro’s Jewellers receipts, warranty card, and insurance appraisal. The ring currently measures a finger size 8 with plenty of room to adjust up or down.

Gold is so durable it doesn’t make any difference that this necklace has been previously enjoyed. If kept clean a high quality well made chain will last many decades. Solid construction goes a long way as does the high quality 14 karat gold content. The higher gold content is far more resistant to corrosion and chemical attack. It also has a richer colour and is more dense than 10 karat. A brand new chain like this would be considered well bought at around $2,100.00.

People have been turning their old jewellery into new for as long as there has been jewellery. It only makes sense really, diamonds and gold don’t expire plus golds ability to forever be remelted and reformed makes it the perfect medium for remodeling and recreating. This behemoth of a gents ring is certainly a remake considering the mix of diamonds it contains. There are a couple of small single cuts and an array of different sized round brilliant cuts. The qualities range from a couple of smaller I2-IJs to the 0.43 carat VS1-GH diamond at the very center. Most are in the SI range and together they weight an estimated 1.50 carats. All 19 are hand set into a white gold top contrasting nicely with the rest of the 18.2 gram, 10 karat yellow gold ring. The digit dominating Rolex style inspired ring spans 20.5mm wide and measures a finger size 11 3/4 with room to adjust. The piece is accompanied by a 1994 P. D. Murphy Jewellers Certificate of Value stating a value of $7,100.00 plus tax. As one of the smaller diamonds has been chipped over a lifetime of wear, our opinion of 4,500.00 CAD is appropriate for a competitive replacement value.

The soldered in place jump ring ends are in line with most of the antique pocket watch chains we’ve encountered. As is the twinned link combo meant to reduce misaligned or bunched links that would roll in and out of position during wear. With twinned links the chain is always laid out perfectly whether worn across a waistcoat or around the neck. The 3.25mm width and 31.6 gram weight speak to a well above average watch tether; it must have belonged to a rather prominent gentleman in its past life.

The square curb style is timeless and it features an integrated catch that almost disappears during wear. The calmer 10 karat yellow gold tone leaves it understated if worn on the patterned side or brightly flashing worn on the reverse. Estate price $1,800.00 CAD. Stock #e11858.

10kt. 8 inch curb link bracelet, 43 grams $1,740.00 CAD. e12358

If you want to know whether a bracelet is well made look at how tight the links are spaced. Loose spacing means the manufacturer has undercut the connecting areas of the links. Which is not the area you want to skimp on as those joints represent the bracelets life span. As you can’t see those areas manufacturers use them as a place to save on weight thus saving on cost. The spacing exhibited on this bracelet is ideal; as a rule of thumb the spaces should be smaller than the gauge of the links. As further proof of quality this 8 inch beveled curb bracelet weighs in at a solid 43 grams in sturdy 10 karat yellow gold. Whoever made this bracelet was a “go big or go home” manufacturer and likely didn’t make it in this era of $2,000.00 (CAD) per ounce gold prices! They’ve opted for an integrated figure eight catch to keep the seamless appearance. Estate price $1,740.00 CAD. Stock #e12358.

Keep it clean and avoid activity that may expose the chain to a sharp force or hard impact and you’re good to go. The chain has received some minor impact dings near the clasp, they can only be found under very close inspection. The 7mm wide 10 karat chain is equipped with large jump ring ends and an ultra heavy lobster clasp for easy fastening.

23 inch anchor link necklace 97gr. 10kt. $3,300.00 CAD. e11784

This time of year I’m sure you’re getting lots of flyers and brochures from local jewellery stores promoting big sales. I see them too but I haven’t seen one yet that gives enough detail to determine if any of the offerings represent decent value. The jewellery looks great and is very pretty but disclosure of quality, weight or certification standards are seldom (almost never) given. At Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers we ALWAYS show you everything you need to know in order to determine the fantastic value of our jewellery. This gents 23 inch anchor link 10 karat yellow gold chain weighs 97 grams (well over 3 full ounces). From this information alone it’s easy to see we offer value that few can come close to matching. If you call other jewellers asking how much the chain weighs in their flyer, they’re likely going to say, “I’m sorry but we don’t sell our chain by weight”. Well they may not sell by the weight but I guarantee they buy it by weight. This nautical link chain is in excellent original condition showing no wear between the solid 10mm wide links. We’ve decided to leave it unpolished and original. We’ll, happily refinish it while you wait in approximately 20 minutes. The refinishing process is likely to remove about 1/2 a gram of gold but the necklace will look like new. Heavy chains like this don’t come in very often. If you’ve been looking around for one don’t wait too long. We don’t send out flyers at Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers; our true value merchandise can be seen on the pages of our website or in person at our one and only location since 1958.

18kt. Italian made curb link necklace 22″ 12.4gr. $1,036.00 CAD. e10354

At Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers we have more chains than we have room in our showcases to display them. Being the most timeless and necessary of jewellery items we always aim to keep a large stock of new options. Most lighter chains that come in for sale or trade have been worn out and end up at the refinery for recycling. Gents chains are made heavier and more robust, often showing no signs of wear what-so-ever. Meaning we have a very large and extremely varied offering of gents chains. Take this 22 inch long Italian made curb link for instance, made from 12.4 grams of high quality 18 karat yellow gold. The chain came in showing no signs of wear, not even needing a polish, but considering its pre-owned nature it’s been priced as aggressively as possible at only $1,036.00 CAD. Stock #e10354.

Don’t let the hollow construction scare you, this ID bracelet is very well made and made to last. Measuring a gents length of 9 inches the bracelet combines the iconic curb link with an over sized engraving plate. That plate curves gently to contour to the wrist and spans an impressive 46.0mm by 11.1mm and 4.5mm thick. It’s no wonder the bracelet is hollow as it was made from top quality 18 karat yellow gold. The sturdy box catch mirrors the dimensions and appearance of the ID bar as a finishing touch, tying the bracelet together. It’s equipped with an additional safety lock for extra peace of mind during wear. Engrave a hidden message on the inside for only the wearer’s eyes or a bold message across the front for the world to see. Hollow yes but with a finished weight of 39.7 grams this is no fragile light weight piece. If kept clean and not subjected to excessive treatment this bracelet will last a lifetime. Freshly polished and looking like brand new. Estate price $2,400.00 CAD. Stock #e11662.

10kt. yellow gold solid Cuban curb link chain 32 inches 69 grams $2,420.00 CAD stock #e12351

Wear your heart on your sleeve and your money on your neck! That’s not a real saying, no one will ever ask us to write greeting cards. But it is a pretty good adage when it comes to shopping for a chain, especially if it is one you want to live in. A chain you want to wear constantly should be as heavy as it looks. Hollow chains are great because you get the look of a big bulky chain without the cost but they don’t stand up to daily wear. A heavy chain can last you a lifetime and it has the added bonus of retaining value like few other purchases can. Consider a vehicle, you buy a decent used one new for maybe $12,000 you drive it off the lot there goes $2,000. 10-15 years from now when its not worth repairing anymore you send it to the scrap yard and maybe the scrap money will cover the cost of the tow. If this chain ever wears completely out the gold value it contains is still worth $1690.00 (at today’s gold price of $1828.14 CAD per ounce for pure gold). The only thing that will need to be maintained on this chain are the heavy end caps and lobster clasp. These are the areas most prone to wear as they are the spots carrying the most weight. At 32 inches long you could easily delete them and still slip the chain over your head. At the estate price of $2,420.00 CAD we are really only allowing $730 to cover all the labour costs that went into producing it. Our estate price is below the wholesale cost to replace with new. The 5.9mm wide chain is in excellent condition showing no signs of wear and tear. Stock #e12351.

We can easily make it a bit shorter for anyone with a slightly smaller wrist who likes the look and feel of a well constructed solid link bracelet. It’s in excellent condition showing no wear in any of the links or the heavy lobster clasp. You can usually count on Italian manufacture for high quality finish/construction and this bracelet is no exception.

Platinum wedding ring (with experience) 6.9gr. $500.00 CAD. e11100

We love the durability, the weight, the purity, the rarity and the soft white colour that platinum offers. What makes this scarce metal so long lasting also makes it waaaaaaay harder to refinish than traditional yellow, white or rose gold. This 4.5mm Canadian made ring was worn every day without regard to the type of activity it was subjected to. As such it displays the typical scuffs, scratches and minor dings associated with continuous use. Refinishing platinum takes more time, requires specialized tools and techniques to restore an original mirror finish. We opted to leave this one alone only applying a light polish preserving the original patina. One of our goldsmiths can easily restore it to new condition if you prefer. A full and complimentary restoration will require sanding entire surface with several stages of increasingly finer grit paper. Only after every single minuscule scuff and minor surface imperfection has been eliminated can we take it to the high speed polishing wheel using only specifically designed compounds. To do a full restoration will result in a few percent of metal loss and reducing the overall intrinsic value. We’re happy to do it but it can only be original once. The size 10 1/2 ring can be custom fit to virtually any finger size. At 6.9 grams this ring offers excellent value for the estate price of just $500.00 CAD. Stock #e11100.

There is nothing more satisfying than a ring telling us its own story, as was the case with this impressive gents ring. Following the clues we found it was manufactured by the site holder for the only tanzanite mine in the world, on Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. The direct line from source to consumer means that the people who are most passionate about the gem are the ones building around it. The appreciation for tanzanite is obvious here, the whole ring is formed to mirror its emerald cut outline. The crowning center weighs 1.63 carats according to its certificate and exhibits the lighter cornflower tone that tanzanite is known for. The channel set 0.30 carats of SI2-I1-GH quality diamonds play a nice contrast to the calm blue center. Everything else about the 13.7mm wide ring is softly faceted, geometric white gold. Most is high polished except for the center of each shoulder which has been sandblasted. The ring currently measures a finger size 11 and has all of its original chromy white rhodium intact. Accompanied by a Jewel Scan appraisal stating a Retail Replacement Value of $5,200.00. We feel $2,300.00 is more realistic and our estate price for the almost unworn piece is $1,610.00 CAD.

Rose gold is becoming popular again. Many high end watch manufacturers like Rolex, Breitling and Omega are showcasing rose gold in their luxury creations. Manufactured by UnoAerre Italy; one of the great jewellery and chain makers. What gives this chain its soft rose tone is the slight bias of copper in the alloy mix. Not only does copper give the chain a slight blush it also makes it quite hard. Measuring 21.5 inches long, 6.0mm wide it should fit most men perfectly. With a weight of 22.8 grams it’s substantial but not of Mr. T. bulk. Secured by a sturdy lobster catch and freshly polished to look like new.

A large adjustment in the finger size pushed the indents closer to the top but still provide a comfy clearance for neighbouring fingers.

Heavy gauge construction in upgraded 14 karat gold with just a little bling. With gold prices close to $1700.00 Canadian per ounce you don’t see many rings built like this in the displays of jewellers. Almost all diamond gents rings taper and thin at the shoulders to the bottom of the shank, just where you need the strength. I assume this ring was a special order for someone who appreciated quality construction and was wiling to pay for it. Most production rings of this design weigh half of what this one does and are usually only 10 karat gold. Securely channel set across the top of the ring are 6 round brilliant cut diamonds of I1-KL quality offering a classy and subtle touch of bling. No worries about compromising the strength if you are not a size 9 1/4, we can make the ring bigger or smaller without concern. Just a plain wedding ring without any diamonds of this weight would cost at least $1000.00. This ring is in excellent condition and estate priced at $1,020.00 CAD. Stock #e11042.

Invisibly set diamonds or “quads” can be troublesome if they aren’t protectively set or carelessly worn. As they are custom cut they can’t simply be replaced with a regular princess cut diamond. If you end up chipping a corner or breaking one usually the entire ring needs to be re-manufactured.  Manufacturers must be extra mindful of how they build the settings that hold them. In the case of this gents ring they could not have made it much more more protective. The 0.50 carats of high VS-HI quality square brilliant cuts are deeply recessed into the ring top. They are further protected by a raised set of yellow gold decorative bars, protecting against impacts and creating another level of contrast. The stylish 14 karat 8.7 gram ring is finished off with a Celtic knot lattice work covering most of its interior. Measuring 8.9mm wide across the top and a size 8 3/4 with some room to adjust.

A ring made for a man who won’t compromise on quality! This super modern, smoothly geometric ring has been made from an impressive 8.5 grams of top quality 18 karat white gold. Fitting, as it’s been set with 0.50 carats of very well cut top quality VS-GH round brilliant cut diamonds; a quality combination usually encountered mostly from high end brands and stores like Tiffany. Many manufacturers don’t bother putting this much quality into their smaller diamonds and they certainly don’t spend them on men’s rings. An unfortunate shutout since most of the men we deal with care more about the Four C’s of diamond quality than the women they’re shopping for. After so much time researching quality for engagement rings men know what to look for when it comes time to shop for themselves. Which is why we are always excited to offer a gents ring of the same high quality that we demand for our female customers.

After 60 years in the same downtown location it’s probably fair to accuse us of the occasional lapse of nostalgia. When Bill opened his store in 1958 tie tacs were still a part of a professional man’s daily wardrobe. The diamond tie tac Adam wears was worn regularly by Bill as he labored away building his business from the ground up. So it’s no leap of the imagination to understand why we are featuring this high quality 18 karat white and yellow gold diamond tie tac today.

Here’s a great gift idea for the guy who has almost everything. Harleys are usually decked out in all kinds of shiny chrome parts and amazing paint jobs so it’s only fitting that the rider/owner has some biker bling too. This ring has been well made from over 7.7 grams of tough 10 karat white gold. It measures 10mm wide in a slightly smaller than average size of 7. As is it will likely fit the smaller man’s pinky finger perfectly. We can easily make it multiple sizes bigger to fit almost anyone’s finger. Estate priced at $441.00. Stock #e10777.

14kt. Italian made curb link bracelet 9″ 31.4gr. $1,740.00 CAD. e11057

Gold isn’t $500.00 anymore and buying something like this brand new can get pretty costly. The great thing about estate jewellery is that it doesn’t know it’s been previously enjoyed. We can also usually refinish and refurbish gold jewellery to look as good as the day it was first delivered. This Italian made curb link chain was likely made in an era when the price of gold wasn’t anywhere near the $1730.00 per ounce Canadian it currently trades at. Solid links, upgraded 14 karat construction and a generous finished weight of over 1 troy ounce make for a luxurious look and feel. Any bracelet made from lesser quality gold with light, hollow and weak links just won’t cut it after you’ve tried this one on. At 9 inches total length this bracelet will fit all but the largest of gentlemen. The total width of 8mm could easily be worn by a lady too if we shorten the length a bit. Lightly polished and looking like new the excellent condition bracelet is estate priced at $1,740.00 CAD.

5.50ct. tw. sapphire & diamond cufflinks 15.9gr. 18kt. $4500.00 CAD. e10825

When it comes to jewellery, men are usually quite conservative in their selections. A plain wedding ring, maybe a gold chain or bracelet and that’s about it. Strange really because when it comes to shiny products like luxury cars, boats, expensive watches etcetera, men are by far the number one market. Cufflinks offer an interesting option for the gentleman who goes to the occasional formal event or someone who likes the tailored look of French cuff shirts. This pair goes well beyond the typical sterling silver or gold plated accessory you’d find at the checkout of a fine haberdasher. There is little doubt these are a custom commissioned item made by a highly skilled jeweller. From the generous 15.9 gram finished weight of premium 18 karat white gold construction, to the very high quality royal blue sapphires and beautiful white diamonds, this is a set that wasn’t defined by a limited budget. The 18 square faceted sapphires are estimated to weight 4.50 carats in total. As soon as you see the brilliant bright blue colour you know you are seeing what high quality sapphires should look like. They’re arranged in a tightly set black rhodium enhanced square. The octagonal outline frame has been bead set with 40 round brilliant cut diamonds of SI-G quality that are estimated to weigh 1.00 carat in total weight. Condition could be best described as looking unworn. They were given to a gentleman as a presentation gift in recognition of many years of service work. After the original owner sold them to Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers he donated the proceeds to charity and continued his service work. The earrings come with a current October 2017 certificate of appraisal from Toronto jewellery appraisal service company Harold Weinstein Ltd. This certificate should enable you (if you choose) to insure this special pair of cufflinks under any household insurance policy. They represent an excellent value at the estate price of $4500.00 CAD. Stock #e10825.

Do your homework and learn for yourself that estate jewellery from Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers offers better value than anywhere. For under $900.00 this perfect condition nautical link gents chain is priced under its wholesale replacement cost. If you have a large neck you may find the 20 1/2 inch length a little short. If you are of average size this necklace should fit perfectly, just visible with the second button undone on a shirt. It measures 6.7mm wide as compared to this standard size 7.0mm pencil. Previously used but showing absolutely no wear in any of the joints. It is equipped with a large lobster clasp and soldered shut connecting ring. Have a look at your gold necklaces and see if the connecting ring is soldered permanently closed. Many times to save a few dollars manufacturers elect to only pinch them closed. It may not seem like a big deal but it’s nice to know a little more time, effort and expense has gone in to making this heavy (26.6 gram) chain as secure as possible.

0.50ct. tw. VS-I gents diamond ring 9.1gr. 14kt. $1400.00 CAD. e10731

For those men who appreciate quality jewellery and traditional design, here is a nice diamond ring that could be used as an alternative wedding ring, right hand ring or pinky ring if you’ve got large hands. The 14 karat yellow and white gold setting contains 3 low set round brilliant cut diamonds of very nice VS-I quality. The comfortable fitting, solid back constructed ring weighs a substantial 9.1 grams in its current finger size 9 1/2. For those men who think diamonds are feminine consider where the name “diamond” comes from. Its origins can be traced to the Greek word adamas that translates to unconquerable. This describes diamonds ability to overcome all attempts to cut or polish the gem from the technology available to ancient craftsmen. This most frustrating of all gems was originally only worn by men as a symbol of masculinity due to the durability diamonds offered. This ring is freshly polished and looking like new. Including a complimentary size adjustment the ring is estate priced at just $1400.00 CAD. Stock #e10731.

e9769 platinum and 18 karat yellow gold bracelet

Now here’s a beast of a bracelet for you! It weighs a surprising 88.4 grams. Surprising because it doesn’t look like it should weigh this much but Platinum is the second densest element on the periodic table and is denser than iron, gold, and tungsten. This density means that one solid link of the bracelet, if made from solid steel or solid 18 karat gold, would weigh far less even if all dimensions were exactly the same. The bright white platinum is complimented with beautiful warm colour 18 karat gold making for a very modern and versatile men’s look. Measuring 9 inches long with a very well made, super secure 18 karat yellow gold figure eight lobster clasp this hefty bracelet is ready for anything. Estate price $4950.00 CAD.

18 karat UnoAerre 22″ curb link necklace 22.8gr. $1250.00 CAD. e11441

Longevity, efficiency, knowledge plus a profound respect for our clients allows us, and motivates us to offer some amazing values on our new and estate jewellery. Very few jewellers give you all the information necessary to make a logical decision on your potential purchase; fewer still give it to you online. We WANT you to compare our products with any and all other offerings. This chain is imported from Italy and manufactured by UnoAerre. They are one of the finest chain and jewellery producers in the world. It measures 22 inches in length and 4.8mm wide. Made from 22.8 grams of premium 18 karat (75% purity) yellow gold. It is secured by a large lobster style clasp that’s easy to use and very safe. The final piece of the value equation that’s often omitted from virtually every other jewellery store website, the weight. At 23.1 grams in weight this chain contains over 1/2 an ounce of pure gold valued at over $900.00 CAD at the current gold price ($1641.00 CAD). We won’t try to manipulate your decision with an inflated and optimistic insurance appraisal because of our respect for our customers best interests.

The nautical or marine link chain follows the same link style as the curb, allowing it to sit flat while being worn. Subdividing that traditional link with a small gold bar changes the impression of the chain, making it look like a continuous, uninterrupted strand of gold. That slight adjustment makes the 20 inch long 14 karat yellow gold chain look much heavier than its 13.2 gram weight would suggest.

Russian made gents 4.4mm rose gold wedding ring 4.2gr. $266.00 CAD. e11473

From Russia with love comes this 14 karat rose gold gents wedding ring. In North America we measure gold purity as a fraction of 24 parts, 24 karat gold is pure, 18 karat gold is 75% pure, 10 karat gold is 41.7% pure etc. In many countries gold purity is measured in a more logical method in percentage of purity. In the case of this Russian ring 583 equals 58.3% pure or the equivalent of our 14 karat (14÷24=0.583). This ring measures a comfortable 4.4mm wide and slightly larger size 11 3/4. One of our goldsmiths can easily make it smaller to fit the average gentleman’s finger. If you had questions about the eastern European origin, one look at the crystal clear hallmark will leave little doubt where it was made. The ring has been polished up like new and is ready to go. At 4.2 grams it’s not the heaviest ring available but because it is alloyed with a little more copper compared to traditional 14 karat yellow gold it is harder. The copper also gives it a lovely rose hue. These don’t show up very often, so if you like it don’t wait around. For just $266.00 it represents excellent value. Stock #e11473.

18kt. never worn gents diamond ring 10.8gr. $1540.00 CAD. e9624

E9624 18 karat yellow and white gold gents diamond ringThis heavy gents ring came to us from a Canadian soldier who sold us a couple of pieces. He purchased it while on tour but never ended up wearing it. According to him it was purchased overseas in the Middle East which explains the warm 18 karat yellow gold colour. In many eastern cultures rich traditional gold tones are the norm but North American tastes tend toward paler more alloyed karat gold colours. None the less this never worn ring fits nicely into men’s style trends with a bezel set 0.17 carat square brilliant cut VS quality diamond setting off the geometric motif of the ring. The diamond is a K colour but thanks to the yellow gold on either side it ends up looking nice and white. The ring is built strong with no hollowed out areas, it weighs a substantial 10.8 grams and currently measures a size 10 but can easily be adjusted up or down a couple sizes.

The look and feel of a substantial gold necklace definitely has a mysterious attraction. Fasten this Miami Cuban around your neck and you’ll instantly shrink two inches. Weighing in at 204.2 grams (almost 1/2 a pound) this is without a doubt the most substantial chain we’ve ever encountered. Honestly you may need a note from your chiropractor if you intend to wear this daily. At 24 inches long and 11.5mm wide this 10 karat yellow gold chain was made to be seen (even at a distance) and it’s in perfect condition. Equipped with a super secure hand made box catch with two additional safety locks, probably because they just don’t make lobster catches this size.

24 inch Foxtail chain 14kt. gold 26.1gr. $1620.00 CAD. e9868

ee9868 14 karat yellow gold foxtail chain 24 inchThe foxtail chain is the modern take on medieval woven chains, carrying their traditional durability and brute strength. In the medieval era these woven chains were made by hand, soldering thousands of oval links together and painstakingly weaving them into each other. Finally after hours of careful work the chain would be soldered to a heavy post and drawn through descending holes drilled into a thick hardwood plate. This process would tighten up the weave, unifying the look of each link, and bring the chain to its final, wearable length. It would also expose weak joints in any of the links, as the weak soldered seams would snap under pressure; ruining the chain and hours upon hours of work. Chains that survived this process would be finished with a hand made clasp with decorative end caps, usually adorned with precious gems. Thankfully manufacturing processes have mechanized most of the work, allowing woven chains to be available to people outside of the monarchy. This 24 inch long foxtail chain was made in Turkey from 26.1 grams of warm 14 karat yellow gold. The durable link has been finished with heavy end caps and a secure lobster clasp all of which show no sign of wear. In brand new condition with the estate price of $1620.00 CAD.

18kt. Gucci link 26″ 81.4gr. solid endless construction $5475.00 CAD. e11063

Most people don’t realize just how heavy gold really is. Usually it gets diluted down to 10 or 14 karat then made into hollow flimsy jewellery. With gold priced at well over $1700.00 Canadian per ounce I understand the motivation. That’s why it’s so nice to see what can be made when price isn’t the main concern. This necklace was made without the usual budgetary constraints. It’s one thing to make a solid link chain in 10 karat gold but quite another to do it in 18 karat! Premium 18 karat gold is around 35% heavier and almost twice as costly. 18 karat gold has a much more attractive rich yellow colour and is far more resistant to corrosion.  At first consideration perhaps resistance to corrosion and chemical attack isn’t at the top of your shopping list, but it’s something that should be kept in mind for a chain with this many assembled components. Perspiration, perfumes, aftershaves, soaps and chemicals you may encounter in swimming pools and hot tubs can attack the solder joints over time causing them to corrode and eventually fail. 18 karat yellow gold is many times more resistant and therefore much longer lasting than other lesser gold alloys. This chain measures 7.0mm wide and 26 inches in total length. The necklace was manufactured without a clasp. We can easily add a sturdy clasp or we could remove a section to shorten it and make a matching bracelet with the leftover. It is in excellent condition showing no wear in any of the links. As a point of interest; with gold priced at $1735.00 CAD this chain contains $3400.00 worth of just recyclable gold. The necklace is estate priced at $5475.00 CAD. Stock #e11063.

Sometimes a little taste of high quality is worse than none at all because now you know what you were missing. 23 grams of 75% purity and 27 inches in length will fit even the biggest man. With or without a pendant this beautiful chain looks complete. Higher karat of gold is far more resistant to corrosion and oxidation. Each of the 300 plus individual links is this chain have been soldered shut ensuring strength. The last thing you want to happen is have those solder joints compromised from corrosion by salt water, sweat etc. that lower karat chain is prone to.

14kt. gents white gold diamond ring 12.5gr. $997.50 CAD. e9493

E9493 heavy 18 karat gents diamond wedding ringWe often have men looking for alternative metal wedding bands because they work with their hands and want something tough that will last. Then we get into a lengthy discussion about the short comings of alternative metal wedding bands. First of all they can’t be efficiently sized or sized at all, so when “dad bod” takes effect later in life you’ll need to buy a new ring. Second they can’t be refinished effectively; we can remove minor scratches but if you gouge it deeply that mark is there forever. Third, to remove these rings in an emergency situation can get a little difficult. We use steel cutting wheels to cut rings off of people’s finger so if you choose a cobalt, tungsten, titanium etc. our tools can’t cut through it. Now if you go the tungsten, cobalt or ceramic route the rings can be compressed until they shatter but then all you can do is throw the broken pieces away. That’s when we suggest rings like this 6.0mm wide by 2.5mm thick 12.5 gram 14 karat white gold ring. These thick gold wedding bands are perfect for men who work with their hands. They can be sized, refinished, and cut off in emergencies. They’re made so substantial they are much less prone to cracking or bending while being worn. This particular band also comes with 0.20 carat total weight of nice SI-H diamonds set deeply into its sides adding some subtle bling in a really unique way. In a finger size 9 ½ the band can be sized up or down a couple of sizes and can easily be given a brushed finish for an even more subtle look. Estate price $997.50 CAD. Stock #e9493.

18kt. white gold gents wedding ring 9.9gr. 6mm $660.00 CAD. e10786

There’s a long standing tradition for those getting married. The gold wedding band has been a symbol of commitment between couples for well over 1000 years.  A plain wedding ring with no specific top or bottom has always been the most popular. The wedding band is an endless, eternal sign of commitment and devotion. Gold has always been the metal of choice. It’s durable, precious and rare, befitting the meaningful bond between two people. Only recently have new alternative metals and materials been offered. Now you can choose titanium, cobalt, tungsten carbide, ceramic, stainless steel and even rubber/silicon. While these substitutes are fun they really are just substitutes of the real thing. Many of the exotic metals and alloys can never be sized and cutting them off is also impossible. There’s nothing quite like a nice high quality wedding ring, they feel great and never go out of style. This estate gents wedding ring was made in Canada by Imperial Refining and Smelting Co. Its basic low convex profile represents one of the most popular combinations of upgraded 18 karat white gold, 6mm in width, finger size 9 1/2 with a comfort fit. It weighs just under 10 grams and can be adjusted in size up or down a little. You can buy many alternative wedding rings for $660.00 but all have practically zero intrinsic value. The gold value alone in this ring is approaching $400.00 with gold priced at $1600.00 per ounce Canadian. If you wish we can engrave a special message inside or an important date.

Nothing beats custom made jewellery; without it you would never find a gents ring made from more than an ounce (34 grams to be exact) of 14 karat white gold! If its weight isn’t enough to impress you the ring measures a staggering 16mm wide, taking up nearly an entire digit. Its square top is made even more geometric looking with the bracketing pattern that separates the 25 diamonds it holds. That pattern flashes a mellow contrast to the 0.94 carats of lively VS-HI quality round brilliant cuts (one of which has a minor chip). The solid ring currently measures a finger size 11 with room to adjust, though our onsite goldsmiths will break a sweat trying to bend that heavy shank! Estate price $2400.00 CAD. Stock #e9443.

18kt. cable link Italian made 24 inch necklace 8.2gr. $600.00 CAD. e10458

I really don’t know why this style of necklace is called a cable link. It doesn’t look like a cable, but that’s a discussion for another day. What I do know for sure is that purchasing a perfect condition estate chain like this makes way more sense than buying a brand new one for twice the money. For less than the price of a new 10 karat version you can have an Italian made 18 karat chain. Did you know that when you’re buying 10 karat gold you’re actually buying more silver than gold, as the gold content in 10 karat is less than 42%. In 18 karat gold you get 75% pure gold. Higher gold content is much prettier, heavier and far more resistant to corrosion. Corrosion is the biggest cause of chains that mysteriously break. The links in every chain manufactured should be soldered shut. Low karat gold chain is held together with low karat solder. Low karat solder just doesn’t stand up to something that’s worn 24/7 like a necklace. For overall durability there is no question 18 karat is the way to go. This example was made in Vicenza Italy. It measures 24 inches in length, weighs 8.2 grams and is in perfect condition showing no signs of use. Estate priced at $600.00 CAD. Stock #e10458.
