14kt. white gold abstract garnet & diamond (0.20ct. tw. SI-H) ring, 5.0gr. $770.00 CAD. 206-00309

Garnet comes in almost every colour of the rainbow (except blue) with some of its variations fetching higher prices than diamond. The trillion cut garnet in this ring is the earthy red tone that most people know garnet for. It’s been cut to a high brilliance, filling the brooking gem with a kaleidoscope of intense red flashes. The garnet is made even more striking by being set into brightly rhodium plated 14 karat white gold. The opposing arm of the ring features a channel of SI-H quality round brilliant cut diamonds that equal 0.20 carats together. The 5 gram ring currently measures a finger size 8 1/4 with some room to adjust. Estate price $770.00 CAD. Stock #206-00309.

9kt. black opal triplet earring/ring set, 10gr. $805.00 CAD (sold separately). 211-00086 206-00304

Opal forms in a similar manner to stalactites, mineral-rich (in this case silica-rich); rainwater runs into cavities in rock, settles, and slowly evaporates, leaving its minerals behind. Over thousands of years, this process results in the empty cracks and crevices being filled up by opal. This unpredictable process results in veins of opal that are too thin to be cut but too high quality to ignore. So these veins get extracted with the rock that surrounds them and in many cases get cut and polished attached to that rock for stability. Finally, these thin slices of opal are capped by clear optical quartz to protect them from damage and allow them to be cut into domed cabochons for greater light access and increased play-of-colour. Such is the case with this trio of black opals, all of fine quality, showing a lot of red flash, the most valuable flash colour. They’ve been set into rope-edged bezels and the ring has a further trim of triple-link cable chain. The ring is digit-dominating at 24.7mm long and the earrings measure 12.7mm x 10.9mm. The ring is a finger size 7 with room to change and all three are made from 9 karat yellow gold. The estate price for the ring is $560.00 CAD Stock #206-00304 and for the earrings $245.00 CAD Stock #211-00086.

0.50ct. tw. diamond & sapphire ring 2.3gr. 14kt. $560.00 CAD. e13355

Every year we see an increase in the amount of people asking about alternative engagement ring centers. The most popular have been moissanite and lab grown diamonds. But if you balk at the thought of a synthetic center the best alternative may be sapphire. It is the next hardest and durable gemstone available, though still not half as hard as diamond. It also comes in a full range of natural colours but honestly you cannot beat a classic, top quality, cornflower blue. The lighter tone matched with a skillful cut and you end up with a kaleidoscope of bright blue and violet flashes. Sapphire is also a symbol of constancy and sincerity, making it the perfect center for an engagement ring. Our 0.30 carat example has been shouldered by 0.20 carats of SI-J round brilliant cut diamonds, creating a gentle marquise shaped perimeter. That study of taper is accentuated by the pinched 14 karat white gold shoulders that quickly expand as they move down the finger. Creating an airy feminine look while maintaining strength and durability. The ring currently measures a finger size 5 3/4 with room to adjust. Estate price $560.00 CAD. Stock #e13355.

We have a lot of pretty much everything when it comes to jewellery! Honestly, ask us for a sapphire ring and we’ll pull out multiple trays full of the things! We joke that we offer too much selection, making our customers forget what it was they were originally looking for. This trio of sapphire and diamond yellow gold rings is only a small sampling of what’s available but it really illustrates the variety you can find within any search parameter. All three are made from yellow gold with white gold or rhodium plated settings, each features an oval sapphire center-stone and petite round brilliant cut diamond accents, two of which have split shoulders. And yet they are all distinctly different from each other. The first ring is accented with baguette-cut sapphires and is the sturdiest, weighing in at 3.2 grams of 14 karat yellow gold. This ring is estate price $350.00 CAD. Stock #e14167. The middle ring has the most optically interesting sapphire, showing the silk inclusions that create the star in star sapphires. You can’t tell from the pictures but there are rolling velvety flashes running in different directions all over the sapphire’s surface. The ring itself is a mix of 10K yellow and white gold and weighs in at 2.2 grams. Estate price $228.00 CAD. Stock #e14166. The final ring is also a mix of 10 karat yellow and white gold, featuring a trio of well-matched oval sapphires.

14 karat 0.50ct. tw. Canadian diamond anniversary ring SI2-I1-G Peoples Jewellers $890.00 CAD. e12530

A little Canadian number that Peoples Jewellers tags with; “Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary, a wedding or simply the love you feel for her, express yourself with a ladylike ring that will make every day special.” We couldn’t say it any better (obviously) and what else is there to say with a staple piece like a channel set diamond band. The 0.51 carats cover the top half of the finger in icy Canadian brilliance of SI-I-G quality. The 10 diamonds are each laser inscribed and come with a certificate of authenticity. The ring itself is made from 2.2 grams of 14 karat white gold that currently measures a finger size 4 3/4. The ring is currently listed on People’s website on sale at $1,159.20. Our price $890.00 CAD. Stock #e12530.


0.20ct. I1-K platinum engagement/wedding ring set 6.1gr. $700.00 CAD. e11514

Why settle, you can have the best without breaking the bank. Platinum prices have been coming down for a number of years now. While still more expensive then white gold, platinum is now a compelling alternative. It’s whiter, tougher, more resistant to chemicals and it’s far less likely to cause irritation to those with sensitive skin. It is also more dense than even pure gold and it’s exponentially more rare. Here’s a ready to go set for way under $1000.00. The traditional solitaire design contains one round brilliant cut diamond estimated to weigh 0.20 carat of I1-K quality. Curiously the original manufacturer set the diamond in a four prong white gold setting while the rest of both rings are made from platinum. If you look closely you’ll notice the four prong top has a subtle yellow hue compared to the pure white colour of the platinum. The 2 rings measure a finger size 7 and weigh a combined 6.1 grams. The traditional design allows adjustment up or down to any possible finger size. The price of just an empty platinum setting can easily exceed our estate price for this 2 ring set of only $700.00 CAD. Stock #e11514.

0.24ct. I1-F Glacier Fire Canadian diamond ring 2.2gr. 14kt. $525.00 CAD. e12712

Canada is the fifth-largest supplier of diamonds by volume to the world market. Most get absorbed into the general parcels of world diamonds along with those from Russia, Australia, and other international sources. Those diamonds that get certified Canadian are tracked by a government appointed Head Gemologist from the mine to the sorting facility of the mining company (De Beers in Botswana for example), to the cutting and polishing facility, and then back to Canada for certification. In reality, the chances that an unbranded diamond is from Canada are pretty high. If you don’t want to gamble with origin, the Glacier Fire brand is one of the larger Canadian diamond brands available on the market. This example is a 0.24 carat round brilliant cut of F colour and I1 clarity. It’s been set into a narrow solitaire with open petal prongs. The 2.2 gram 14 karat white gold ring maintains its original bright rhodium finish and finger size 7 1/4. It comes with its original black and red box, Canadian paperwork, and a certificate stating an estimated retail replacement value of $1,200.00 CAD. We feel a more competitive replacement value is $750.00 and our price as a like new previously enjoyed ring is just $525.00 CAD. Stock #e12712.


Antique diamond solitaire 0.07ct. I2-I, 2.3gr. $263.00 CAD. e14150

1919 Ryrie Toronto wedding 18kt. wedding ring, 2.9mm, 18kt. $560.00 CAD. 401-00183

The name Ryrie may be unfamiliar to most, but in the late 1800 and early 1900s, they were the finest jeweller in Toronto. They expanded their location several times on Yonge Street over the years. In 1905 Montreal based Birks came to town and opened a location only a few doors up the street. It wasn’t long before the two firms combined forces becoming by far the largest luxury jeweller in Canada. The merged company experienced great success as the flourishing Toronto economy matured. This simple ring should give you an idea of what Ryrie Bros. was all about in the early part of the 20th century. While 9 karat gold (37.5% pure) is the minimum legal standard for gold jewellery manufactured in Canada, this 18 karat ring is twice as pure at 75% fine gold. Its premium quality reveals itself in the rich tone and surprisingly hefty weight for a ring of only 2.8mm in width. It is likely alloyed in the Commonwealth tradition of blending small amounts of silver and copper resulting in a beautiful colour. Normally we’d restore and polish a ring like this to look like new, but this time we’ve decided to honor its antique nature and leave a century’s worth of patina proudly on display. We have also elected to leave the original hand engraved sets of initials and wedding date in place. We can easily adjust its current size 6 3/4 up or down and make it look new if you prefer. Refinishing the ring and removing the engraving would cost a few tenths of a gram in weight but would otherwise not harm the ring and would make it look like new. For the cost of a new, well-priced, 14 karat wedding ring of the same weight you can have this fantastic bit of Toronto history made in a higher quality gold. The precise manufacturer and purity stamps inside the shank look like they were applied only yesterday. If only these antique rings could speak, I’m sure they’d be able to tell a great story.

0.41ct. tw. I1-HI diamond halo engagement/wedding ring set 4.5gr. 14kt. $840.00 CAD. e14194

This style always makes me think of those frilly white Ruff collars from 16th and 17th-century paintings. Apparently at their most extreme ruffs were more than a foot in diameter and had to be supported by wire cages! This diamond ruff only spans 9mm and has swapped its lace for tiny baguette and round brilliant cut diamonds. The collar’s undergallery has even been patterned in a way that resembles the figure-eight folds of later ruffs. Instead of the stony visage of Queen Elizabeth I, this ruff centers around a 0.20 carat I1-H round brilliant cut diamond. The 14 karat white gold engagement ring features 0.41 carats of diamond in all and comes with its original certificate and contoured wedding band. The two were never worn together as the engagement ring measures a finger size 5 1/4 and the band measures a stock size 7, both with room to adjust. Estate price for the set only $840.00 CAD. Stock #e14194.


0.30ct. VVS2-K (0.43ct. tw.) 14kt baguette & round diamond ring 3.4gr. 14kt. $750.00 CAD. e12857

One of our favourite shapes for accent diamonds are showing off their wall to wall splintery brilliance in this engagement ring! The 14 tapered baguette cut diamonds make such a calm statement surrounded by high polished rhodium enhanced white gold. They draw the eye to the diamond intersecting the ring, a 0.30 carat round brilliant cut of VVS2-K quality. Its excellent cut promotes superb brilliance and helps make it appear larger than its 4.4mm diameter would suggest. The centre diamond and baguettes combine to weigh an estimated 0.43 carats of total weight. The 3.4 gram ring is in brand new condition and currently measures a finger size six with a bit of room to adjust. It comes with its original Gem Scan appraisal stating a replacement value of $2,450.00. This ring quite possibly could be unworn; its condition is absolutely perfect without a scuff or scratch.

0.41ct. tw. SI1-H engagement/wedding ring set, 14kt., 3.0gr. $980.00 CAD. e14057

A unique and low-profile wedding set that manages to pack a ton of personality into such a small package. The main diamond only sits 3.3mm off of the finger, almost as low as most people’s wedding bands. That height makes it perfect for anyone who works with their hands or healthcare professionals who wear gloves throughout the day. The 0.41 carats of round brilliant and tapered baguette-cut diamonds end up making quite the statement. Their high SI1-H quality and unique brilliance patterns draw the eye, especially set into understated 14 karat yellow gold. The engagement ring is partnered with an ever-so-slightly contoured wedding band that’s equally diminutive. Currently measuring a size 7 1/2 they can be made a size or so smaller or larger. Estate price for the pair only $980.00 CAD. Stock #e14057.

14kt. 0.18ct. ruby & diamond ring (0.17ct. tw. SI-IJ), 3.0gr., sz. 4 1/2. $350.00 CAD. 206-00295

30 years ago, an inexpensive ring did not mean low quality. This pretty little marquise cluster ring was likely manufactured in the early 1990s when gold was 80% less costly than today. At that time small brilliant cut diamonds of SI-IJ quality were commonly used in lower priced jewellery and sparkled way better than the poorly cut promotional I2-I3-LM diamonds used in cheap jewellery today. Coloured stones were bright and vivid back then despite their low cost. Even a ring like this was constructed in two sections; hand assembled from upgraded 14 karat yellow gold and white gold with a solid shank from the halfway point. Today something like this would be completely cast from basic 10 karat yellow gold with just a rhodium highlighted setting, and likely half the weight. Vintage is popular and a classic style like this would make a great first diamond ring for anyone with a size 4 1/2 finger (or July birthday). Our onsite goldsmiths can adjust the size up or down if necessary. The total weight of diamonds and rubies in this 10.7mm x 7.1mm cluster are estimated to weigh 0.35 carats. This ring is in like new condition showing no wear on any of the claws on thinning of the shank. The estate price is $350.00 CAD. Stock #206-00295.

14kt. yellow gold larimar ring 10.6gr. $846.00 CAD. e11572

Larimar is a semi precious gemstone found exclusively in the Dominican Republic. Fitting as the colour captures Caribbean waters lapping on a white sand beach. Even more so in this 4.75 carat cabochon cut larimar which exhibits a slightly deeper blue on the right hand side transitioning into an almost white blue on the left hand side. Looking at the pictures you may doubt that description but the white is a hidden phenomenon not visible head on. To find it you must turn the gem until you are looking just at its left hand side. As you do so the white rolls up the stone like a white cap building speed. A fascinating colour change that you must see in person! This unique example of larimar is housed in a heavy and durable 10 gram 14 karat yellow gold ring that currently measures a finger size 8 1/2. Larimar is photosensitive and must be stored away from intense heat and continuous exposure to direct sunlight. Estate price $846.00 CAD. Stock #e11572.

A ring inspired by old-world architecture with its peaked top and middle eastern filigree work. On that solid design foundation, the 5 gram ring lays a mosaic of 38 diamonds. The contrasting facet patterns play off of each other with two rows of baguettes bisected by a line of princess cuts; adding balance to busy brilliance. The invisibly set 0.66 carats of nice SI-I quality diamonds do have a couple of chipped corners among their ranks which are to be expected really with such petite corners. The unique ring currently measures a finger size 7 1/2 with a limited room to size. These are really big diamonds for just $24.00 apiece (including the gold). It’s a ton of sparkle for the estate price of just $900.00 CAD. Stock #e11095.

The once dying art of hand engraving is starting to make a comeback with some ultra-high-end jewellery houses and frankly, it’s about time! The graceful work of a master hand engraver is awe-inspiring. This comparatively simple sampling of vintage hand engraving is a great example of what a difference a bit of pattern can make. Really the simple nature of the band brings out each stroke of the graver’s blade. The arabesques that wrap around the band’s circumference are in their original condition, showing no pattern breaks for previous sizings. The 6.7mm wide band happens to also weigh in at 6.7 grams of 14 karat white gold. It currently measures a finger size 9 with room to adjust. Estate price is $540.00 CAD. Stock #e13919.

18kt. wedding band, 4.9gr., 4.5mm wide, size 6. $490.00 CAD. e14492

Carat or Karat? Why would one industry choose two such similar words to describe such different things? Carat (used to describe the weight of diamonds and gemstones) originated from the carob seeds (called carats) whose consistent size and weight made them useful counterbalances for weighing rough diamonds and gems against. The word has a couple of origins all of which trace back to the Greek keration which referred to both the carob bean pod and a small weight. The word karat was also derived from keration and is itself a unit of measurement with one karat being equal to 1/24th part of pure gold in an alloy (18 karat is 18 parts gold and 6 parts alloy, or 75% pure gold). Now, to make things more confusing many countries use carat and karat interchangeably when describing gold purity, like this 18ct. yellow gold band. The 4.5mm wide band is cast from 4.9 grams of yellow gold and currently measures a finger size 6 with plenty of room to adjust. Estate price $490.00 CAD. Stock #e14492.

10kt. signet ring, 13mm x 8mm, 4.1gr., sz. 9 1/2. $350.00 CAD. 401-00138

Signet rings were a surprise bestseller last Christmas. We practically sold out of every estate example in the store. There is nothing more classic and traditional as a Signet ring. This one is a little more decorative with its grooved edging. The brushed finish engravable surface has been turned 90 degrees allowing two or three initials to be engraved. The ring measures a finger size 9 1/2 and could be made smaller and engraved by one of our onsite goldsmiths. While the ring has a hollow underside, it is still sturdy with a shank measuring 3.3mm wide at the thinnest spot. This 10 karat yellow gold ring weighs 4.17 grams and is estate priced at $350.00 CAD.

0.77ct. tw. sapphire (high quality) & diamond ring, 2.6gr. 14kt. $700.00 CAD. 206-00281

We’re suckers for high-quality sapphires and I bet if you met these four in-person you’d develop a soft spot too. The four square cut natural sapphires are excellent examples of what the gemstone is capable of. Their bright true blue is well saturated and light enough to allow for maximum brilliance. During wear, they flash intense indigo, appearing almost lit from within. The four sapphires equal an estimated 0.51 carat together. After a lifetime of wear, they do display some abrasions across their crown facets and one has a minor chip. The sapphires are bracketed by pairs of single cut diamonds that equal about 0.09 carats all of I1-IJ quality. The vintage 14 karat white gold ring carries its precious cargo in a decorative filigree accented top. The ring currently measures a finger size 7 with some room to adjust. It is accompanied by an insurance appraisal done by Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers many years ago. Our estate price is $700.00 CAD. Stock #206-00281.

0.60ct. tw. SI-HI invisibly set diamond diamond ring 3.8gr. 18kt. $700.00 CAD. e11511

Invisible set quads are a common solution to the affordability problem of larger diamond engagement rings. The four princess cut diamonds that crown this ring have been specially cut with a secret groove on their underside that locks tight onto hidden rails in the quad head. This allows the diamonds to be set without the appearance of any metal making contact with them. Used here, the setting style creates the impression of a single larger diamond by adding four prongs to the four exterior corners of the quad. The illusion works, making these four diamonds look like a single 5.88mm x 5.88mm 1.25 carat single diamond at a glance. The shoulders of the ring have been decorated on all three faces with round brilliant cut diamonds of matching SI-HI quality. They bump the total weight of the ring to 0.60 carats and are decorated with swirling filigree accents and heart-shaped under-galleries. The ring has been cast from high-quality 18 karat white gold and currently measures a finger size 5 with a bit of room to adjust. Its estate price is only $700.00 CAD. Stock #e11511.

Chain link rings have been a staple for the last two decades. This particular example simply nods at the chain link it was patterned after, keeping a lower and more geometric profile than you’d find in many other examples. It also separates itself by setting every other link across the ring top with tightly packed round brilliant cut diamonds. The 0.20 carats total weight of SI-H diamonds end up stealing the show! The 5.6mm wide ring is cast from solid 14 karat white gold and currently measures a finger size 6 1/2 with a bit of room to adjust. Estate price $1,050.00 CAD. Stock #e13350.

We pride ourselves on having a range of size offerings out of the showcase to ensure that every person who comes into our store can find something that will suit them. This channel set band was originally made in a finger size 11 which means the ring still has room for some adjustment up or down.

Different size stones, different shapes, and different colours, they all look good arranged in groups of three. The three diamonds in this 14 karat white gold bi-pass style channel setting weigh an estimated 0.50 carats and are of bright I1-IJ quality.

White gold is slightly harder than yellow gold, making it a great choice for the top of a signet ring. That added hardness means anything engraved or set into it will hold up a bit better than it would in yellow gold. The contrast of colour and finish also helps draw the eye to that 13mm x 12mm top plate, making it an excellent stage for whatever message or symbol you wish to display.

You’ve picked your partner (or maybe they picked you!) and now it’s time to pick the bands. If you’re looking for a  classic pair of bands it’s harder to get more timeless than these. The 14 karat white gold pair are both 7mm wide with low dome profiles and very unique karat stamps; both display a European 585 instead of the North American 14 karat and their maker’s mark is a person seated in profile in some manner of prayer or meditation. Both came in high polished but we opted for a bit of personality by satin finishing one, if you feel like changing the finish of either one of our in-house goldsmiths can accommodate most requests in a day or two. One band currently measures a finger size of 8 1/2 and weighs 6.5 grams, the other measures 7 1/2 and weighs 5.9 grams. Both sizes can be adjusted in-house!

You might find it hard to believe but this design is pushing 100 years old! It hasn’t gone out of style since Cartier released the Trinity de Cartier in 1924. Consider the embellished aesthetic of the Art Deco movement this design was revolutionary and daring when it was released. Each coloured gold band was meant to symbolize fidelity, friendship, and love. As with anything iconic the design has been ‘borrowed’ by almost every jewellery manufacturer at some point. This 18 karat trio is one of those ‘homages’ to the Cartier original and weighs in at an even 8.7 grams.

0.30ct. VS1-H Canadian princess cut diamond ring 3.4gr. 14kt. gold $980.00 CAD. e10623

This softly geometric solitaire is very well made with full shoulders and generous solid construction. It was originally sold in Canada by recently bankrupted now back in business Ben Moss Jewellers. One of the tell tale signs of mass production for the chain stores are hollow inside shoulders, thin shanks and generally light weight manufacturing. The hollowed out sections and light weight allow stores to cut costs and increase profits. This 3.4 gram 14 karat white gold engagement ring was left fully intact. Appropriately so as Ben Moss crowned the ring with a higher quality diamond than you’d normally encounter in the average mall store. That 0.30 carat princess cut diamond is a bright and lively VS1-H quality of Canadian Maple Leaf origins. All Canadian diamonds have been laser engraved with a unique registered number and this example is no different. The elegant and understated solitaire is currently a finger size 5 1/2 with room to size up or down as needed. Estate price $980.00 CAD. Stock #e10623.

14 karat yellow gold pearl & diamond ring 5.3 grams $700.00 CAD. e12384

Did anyone else see the pearl ring Awkwafina wore in the Netflix movie Crazy Rich Asians? Considering it took up two digits the pearl itself was of course costume as there are no golf ball sized perfectly round pearls in nature. In fact, the largest round pearl in recorded history only measured 17.44mm in diameter, a third of the size of Awkwafina’s. Its auction price of $713,000 USD certainly wouldn’t have been out of scope for the jewellery that decorated the movie. At just 8mm in diameter, this ring is not in the Crazy Rich lexicon but it makes an impressive impact on the finger. The white pearl is set into a modern yellow gold collar and shouldered by four flush set round brilliant cut diamonds. The ring itself has been well made from 5.3 grams of warm 14 karat yellow gold and currently measures a finger size 9. Estate price $700.00 CAD. Stock #e12384.

“Cartier inspired” ring with cuff bracelet 20.8gr. tw. $350.00 & $1,750.00 CAD. e13957 e13956

When Louis Cartier launched his Trinity de Cartier ring in 1924 he basically took ownership of anything depicting tri-gold bands. In the 97 years since the Trinity was originally released, Cartier has revisited the tri-gold concept countless times. It is a look they’ve never abandoned, because really, why would you? For close to 100 years many other jewellers have picked up the theme and built on its brand recognition. This cuff and ring combo is not only inspired by Cartier, but also made to their quality standards. The ring is cast from 3 grams of top quality 18 larat gold and the cuff from 15.8 grams. They’ve been machine finished to increase their tensile strength and to draw attention to their tri-gold nature. Each coloured stripe has been sandblasted to maximize its colour contrast (take a look at how subtle the two-tone is when it’s left high polished inside the cuff and ring) and given a bright cut groove to boldly separate it from its neighbors. The cuff measures 9.9mm wide and the band measures 5.9mm wide. Both end in high polished yellow gold buckles, creating subtle belt imagery, a nod to the buckle rings that have been popular since the mid-1800s. The pair are sold separately for $350.00 CAD and $1750.00 CAD. Stock numbers e13957 and e13956.

18kt. emerald & diamond ring 0.43ct. tw. VS-F, 3.7gr., $980.00 CAD. e14340

A softer almost summer green compared to what you normally encounter with emerald, that verdant gem of spring.

14kt. shield signet ring, 10.5mm x 10.5mm, sz. 4 3/4, 5.2gr. $455.00 CAD. 401-00131

There is a growing trend in signet rings but instead of traditional script initials, these pinky finger accessories are being decorated with sayings, engraved flowers, or symbols that are meaningful to the wearer. New eyes are looking at these traditional rings as blank canvases. From engraved star signs accented with flush-set diamond stars to inside jokes between couples or friends, the possibilities are limited only by one’s imagination! This particular canvas measures 10.5mm x 10.5mm and its defensive shield shape would make a meaningful background to a personal motto. The 14 karat gold is a pale yellow that almost borders on green electrum in person. It currently measures a finger size 4 3/4 with plenty of room to adjust. Our on-site designer goldsmiths are ready to transform this generic ring into something meaningful and unique. Estate price $455.00 CAD. Stock #401-00131.


10kt. retro infinity design ring, 4.5gr., size 7 1/2, $350.00 CAD. e14362

We seem to be in a unique space fashion-wise, instead of a single decade being in style again there is a mix of the 70s, 80s, and 90s all at once and it makes for quite the collage of palettes! The mix of decades also makes a broad spectrum of popular jewellery styles, which may be hard to cater to for other jewellers but we happen to have a representation of each decade and most of our pieces are genuinely from those decades. This retro infinity ring would be equally at home in the 70s or 80s. The 10 karat yellow gold ring spans 11.7mm and currently measures a finger size 7 1/2 with some room to adjust. Estate price $350.00 CAD. Stock #e14362.


Antique 22kt. rose gold wedding ring 4.25gr. sz. 6. $613.00 CAD. 401-00149

Rose gold is a little less often encountered compared to traditional yellow and white gold alloys, especially in 22 karat. Its colour is much richer thanks to its alloy of 91.6% gold and 8.4% copper. Despite what our pictures display the colour is less pink and more of an earthy apricot in person. From its anchor stamp, we can tell it was made assayed in Birmingham, England, the upright capital D indicates the ring was made in 1928, with the crown corroborating that age as it was used to identify gold up until 1932. Considering the band is 94 years old it’s in great shape, looking like it could have been cast this week. The band measures 2.88mm wide by 1.67mm thick and is currently a finger size 6 with plenty of room to adjust. The estate price for this antique is $613.00 CAD. Stock #401-00149.

18kt. retro hematite “black Alaskan diamond” ring, 4.6gr., size 6 1/2. $490.00 CAD. e14228

Hematite is commonly referred to as “black Alaskan diamond” a very misleading name as hematite could not be further from diamond. As diamond is a transparent form of pure carbon hematite is an opaque form of iron ore. Diamond has a hardness of 10 and hematite has only a hardness of 5.5-6.5. Really the only thing the two stones have in common is their ability to conduct heat. In fact, there are no records of hematite even being mined in Alaska, as the state has no known iron deposits. So it seems the anomaly of “black Alaskan diamonds” must remain a mystery. Despite having nothing to do with diamonds, hematite is still an attractive gem with its intense metallic luster and deep brooding grey colour. This retro 1970s ring features a long slender marquise hematite that dominates the finger. The ring measures 29.8mm long and sets off its steely-black gem with warm 18 karat yellow gold. One of our sharp-sighted sales staff noticed a small section of one of the claws is missing. The stone is still secure and the minor defect is hardly noticeable. The ring currently measures a finger size 6 1/2 with a bit of room to adjust. Estate price $490.00 CAD. Stock #e14228 206-00243.

14kt. tri-colour BIRKS rolling rings, size 6 1/2, 2.5mm, 5.5gr. $630.00 CAD. 401-00181

You might find it hard to believe but this design is pushing 100 years old! It hasn’t gone out of style since Cartier debuted the Trinity de Cartier in 1924. Considering the embellished aesthetic of the Art Deco movement this design was revolutionary and daring when it was released. Each coloured gold band was meant to symbolize fidelity, friendship, and love. As with anything iconic the design has been ‘borrowed’ by almost every jewellery manufacturer at some point. This 18 karat trio is one of those ‘homages’ to the Cartier original and was made by Canadian luxury jeweller BIRKS. Their example is made from 3 individual dome profile rings that each measure 2.5mm wide. The 3 rings weigh in at a combined 5.5 grams and measure a finger of approximately 6 1/2. This ring is in excellent condition and was just polished up to look like new. These are always popular when they occasionally show up in our estate department. If you are interested in this ring, don’t wait. At the estate price of just $630.00 CAD, this ring will not last long. Stock #401-00181.

0.13ct. SI1-K sliding diamond ring, 5.8gr., 14kt., sz. 7, $660.00 CAD. e14467

A literal floating diamond; really, it’s been trapped in a large channel carved into each heavy bar of the ring, allowing it to float freely up and down the ring. The 9.6mm ring’s top almost resembles an hourglass, adding some extra meaning to this diamond that flows with gravity. The majority of the ring has been high polished but the deeply concave shoulders are horizontally brushed, accentuating the depth of those curves. The ring is well made from 5.8 grams of warm 14 kart gold and measures a finger size 7. Due to the very unique nature of the setting, this ring can’t be sized. Estate price $660.00 CAD. Stock #e14467.

0.40ct. tw. VS-HI baguette diamond anniversary ring 2.8gr. 14kt. $980.00 CAD. e13880 121-00098

We don’t often encounter an anniversary band with only the top quarter of the ring set with diamonds. The norm in the industry is top third to the top half. But we also rarely encounter an anniversary band set with baguettes. Considering their unique optical properties the band ends up being more striking for the contrast. Their hall of mirrors style brilliance creates a rolling effect that is highlighted by the soft curves of the high polished yellow gold that surrounds it. The conservatively estimated total weight of 0.40 carats of top quality VS-HI baguettes are of course set edge to edge to create an uninterrupted channel of sparkle. The ring itself is cast from 2.8 grams of warm 14 karat yellow gold and features a decorative pierced gallery. The ring currently measures a finger size 6 1/2 with some room to adjust up or down. Estate price $980.00 CAD. Stock #e13880.

Antique onyx & diamond ring 0.04ct. 3.2gr. 14kt. $490.00 CAD. 206-00338

You’d never see a ring like this produced today. Like almost everything, manufacturing has become streamlined for maximum efficiency. Hand cut natural banded onyx, hand formed filigree, hand applied milgrain, and multiple piece assembly are things you just don’t see on modern rings at this price point. My favorite aspect of this diamond is the thin rectangular black onyx that produces the contrast in this Art Deco ring. True onyx is banded in parallel layers and not just one colour like you’d see on a modern ring. The thin layers of this example are the Oreo Cookie black and white pattern.
