Alterations and transformations are a great way to update jewellery that you haven’t worn in years. We love bringing old jewellery back to life. Have you collected all of your lost earrings, hoping that a match might show up one day? Let us turn them into a charm bracelet…full of memories. Maybe you wear clip-on earrings but can never find anything fun…we can alter a pair of pierced earrings for you. We will work on your existing jewellery and alter it to suit you better.
Antique and Vintage
Do you have a special piece of vintage or antique jewellery that no other jewellers are willing to touch? We have worked on some of the most challenging and delicate heirlooms and are happy to give you an assessment on the piece that you have.
Do you have a special piece of jewellery that you are curious about? What is it made of? How much is it worth? We can have the piece appraised for you. Starting at $60.
Costume and Unusual Materials
There is no such thing as a “crappy” piece of jewellery. Okay, yes there is! But we are still happy to repair even the most unusual specimen. Resin, leather, paper, plastic, fur, sequins, wood, rubber, felt balls… you name it, we can help you with it. With a smile.
We will entertain any jewellery related request. In fact, it does not exclusively have to be a jewellery item. We have worked on, repaired and custom made a wide variety of other metal objects, including goblets, candle sticks, sundials, metal purses, shoe clips, picture frames, lamps, clocks, a bouquet of metal flowers and many more. Let’s see what we can do for you!
Laser / Custom Engraving
Engraving is a lovely way to make a piece of jewellery extra special. There are a variety of ways to achieve the “engraved” look. It can be done using the traditional method of hand engraving. However, there is also machine engraving and laser engraving. Each results in a slightly different look and feel. The content that you provide will often dictate which method will be best to use. Prices start at $3 per letter for machine engraving and go up to $10 per letter for hand engraving.
We now also have a laser engraver on-site.

Props and Films
Are you costume designer working in the film or fashion industry? Our jewellers are available to help you with your special requests. We specialize in costume jewellery, prop jewellery, duplicates and imitations. Our studio is open 24 hours a day and we are available to meet your unreasonable deadlines. Tell us your goals and design limitations and we will find a solution for you.
Have you lost a special piece of jewellery? We can reproduce it for you. We can make a reproduction from a photograph, or make a mold from an existing piece of jewellery based on your needs. Please keep in mind that it is very likely that you will spend more money on the reproduction than you spent on the original piece.
Revamping Old Jewellery
Is your jewellery box full of jewellery that you just aren’t wearing anymore? Maybe there are a few pieces that you would like to wear if they were revamped or updated in some way. Bring in your jewellery box and show us what you’ve got. We are full of great suggestions and would love to help you reconnect with your jewellery from the past.
Ring Removal Services
Do you have a ring stuck on your finger! Not to worry, we can help you.
Please give us a call at 416 463 2136 and arrange a time to come in to have your finger, oops I mean ring removed. The process is very gentle and only takes a few minutes. Once the ring is off we can size the ring properly for you.
If you are a stylist interested in using our jewellery for creative purposes, we are more than happy to collaborate with you. Many of our designers have “signature” pieces and “haut couture” lines that have been designed and created as “wearable art” and would love to make them available to you. Please feel free to visit the gallery anytime to see what we have on display at the moment. Our collections change frequently and there is always something new and amazing to see. We are happy to work “in-trade” in exchange for professional photographs or will rent the pieces to you at a mutually agreeable rate. Please inquire by email or visit the store anytime.
( Please no jewellery pulls on Saturdays, too busy ).
