0.39 carat SI1-F diamond ring 14kt. white gold $1400.00 CAD. e10647

 No sense re-inventing the wheel or paying extra for a similar custom ring when a beautiful ring like this is available for just $1400.00 CAD. You’d have a pretty hard time finding someone who doesn’t appreciate the simple classic good looks of this one. The thin 3.0mm (at the widest point) shank focuses pretty much all the attention on the centre diamond.  8 small diamonds weighing 0.09 carats total weight add a subtle touch of bling down the shoulders. No halo cluster here, just a high quality SI1 clarity, F colour round brilliant cut diamond with a very good cut. We could talk about crown height, table percentage, total depth, pavilion angle etcetera but when it comes to a high quality cut you’ll know it when you see it and this one has it!  It’s a little ball of fire dancing on top of the 14 karat white gold size 6 engagement ring. The 2.7 gram setting is easily matched with a wedding ring when the time comes around. Any flat edge ring should fit flush allowing 100s of potential wedding rings. This ring is in perfect condition looking like it was hardly worn. If we freshly rhodium plate it, you’d never know it had even been worn. Great price point and amazing value that only an estate ring can provide. Estate priced at just $1400.00 CAD. Stock #e10647.

2.30ct. total diamond weight 18kt. square anniversary ring $4200.00 CAD. e9372

e9372 18kt. square diamond anniversary ringDespite having a square outline this ring is very comfortable and also just looks really cool. Embellished with 36 bead set round brilliant cut diamonds weighing an estimated 2.30 carats in total. Quality was top of mind when this ring was designed and manufactured using 18 karat white gold to compliment the VS clarity, H colour diamonds. It’s hard to say exactly what the finger size is for a square ring but it feels close to the average ladies finger size of approximately 6 to 6.5. It’s a fun and funky ring that could be used as an anniversary or a right hand ring. Finished weight of 5.6 grams is a fair bit heavier then the typically encountered mass produced ring. Huey Lewis and the News said it best in 1986 “It’s Hip to Be Square”. Estate priced at $4200.00 CAD. Stock #e9372.e9372 square diamond anniversary ring


Rolex Datejust 116200 $5988.00 CAD. e10663

This just might be the “universal watch”. What I mean by that is, it could be the perfect watch for any/all occasions. Part of this includes the fact that yes it’s a Rolex too. Being a Rolex means it’s more than just a basic machine to tell you the time. It’s a tradition of excellence and achievement going back well over 100 years. World explorers, heads of state, international celebrities, captains of industry to professionals of all walks of life; wearing a Rolex watch is as much a lifestyle statement as it is the best tool to get the job done. A black dial 36mm Datejust really can do it all. The oyster case was a ground breaking advancement in making watches watertight.  Rolex states: “Invented by Rolex in 1926, it was the world’s first waterproof case for a wristwatch thanks to its patented system of screwing down the bezel, case back and winding crown against the middle case. A symbol of robustness and water resistance, this perfectly proportioned and elegant watch case is a superb blend of form and function”.  Ultra dressy with a tuxedo on your wedding day or kickin back  on the deck with your buddies this watch always looks great. The case and bracelet are crafted exclusively from 904L stainless. 316L stainless is the industry standard for high quality watches, it works great and offers excellent resistance to corrosion but Rolex demand better. In 1985 they were the first watch manufacturer to use 904L. It offers an even higher level of protection from almost all types of chemicals and corrosion. It produces a beautiful polish and sheen but it is more difficult to machine. Rolex had to produce its own special tools and processes in order to properly work with 904L steel. This watch was purchased in Italy in October 2016 and is in 100% original condition. It shows evidence of less than one year of intermittent use by the previous owner. Small scratches on the case and bracelet are present. We have elected to leave the factory finish alone. If you wish, our goldsmiths can polish and refinish the case to like new condition if you want the watch to look perfect. Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers will honor the full 5 year factory warranty balance in place until October 2021. Comes complete with original box, cardboard sleeve, instructions, booklets and warranty card. Estate priced at $5988.00 CAD. Stock #e10663.

10kt. brown & white diamond pendant/chain 0.25ct. tw. $368.00 CAD. e10562

Far from the traditional circle pendant this graceful interpretation turns the circle 45 degrees to the left. That asymmetrical O further exaggerates its shape with a contrast of chocolate diamonds on the outside and bright white diamonds on the inside. Those 0.25 carats of round brilliant cuts enhance the optical illusion of three dimensions while also moving the eye around the 19.6mm long by 13mm wide pendant. The 3.2 gram 10 karat yellow gold pendant is another example of yellow gold making a stylish come back. It flows easily across its 18 inch long box link chain, equipped with a sturdy spring ring clasp. Estate price $368.00 CAD. Stock #e10562

Ladies Rolex Datejust 79173 Tapestry dial $4890.00 CAD. e10555

The Rolex Datejust could just be the most popular model the esteemed brand has ever produced. The design has been around for over 70 years with millions of men’s and lady’s examples manufactured. We see them in various sizes with different bezel, dial and bracelet combinations all the time. A tapestry face is a less often encountered optional dial treatment. The vertical stripes are created by embossing a corrugated texture across the surface creating little hills and valleys. This treatment causes shadows to form over the dial when the watch is moved, resulting in a striking rolling shadow effect. It’s surprising the dial wasn’t a more popular option when this watch was new in 2000. Nowadays any colour of tapestry dial is always a customer favorite. The ordinary flat finishes just look a little dull by comparison. A silver tapestry looks especially fresh and clean. The distinctive dial pattern is particularly flattering with the 18 karat centre links of the jubilee bracelet. The rest of the watch is classic ladies Rolex; 26mm oyster case watertight to 100 meters, 18 karat yellow gold fluted bezel on an 18 karat yellow gold and stainless steel jubilee bracelet. Rolex is one of the few companies to produce a lady’s certified chronometer automatic watch. Model 79173 in no different. The mechanism has been adjusted and regulated to the same tolerances for accuracy as any of the larger men’s chronometer models. The red seal and dial text is your warranty of independent testing and certification to the world’s most exacting standards. The watch is running great with all functions working as designed. For a 17 year old watch the overall condition is very good. The bracelet is showing just a bit of wear in the form of a little sag but it still has many decades of service left. Including a 1 year Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers warranty the watch is estate priced at $4890.00 CAD.
