20 Years of Shining Moments: An Archive of MYL in The News

We’re thrilled to announce our recent recognition by BlogTO as one of the top 10 destinations for diamond engagement rings in Toronto. The popular lifestyle and culture blog conducted a thorough review of various jewelry stores across the city, ultimately spotlighting Made You Look for our exceptional craftsmanship and commitment to sustainable design.

BlogTO, known for its insightful city guides and recommendations, celebrated Made You Look’s commitment to providing a personalized and memorable experience for customers seeking the perfect engagement ring. Our store’s casual and friendly atmosphere, combined with a diverse selection of designers and handcrafted jewelry, naturally attract those who seek one-of-a-kind pieces.

“We are honored and overjoyed to be recognized by BlogTO as one of the top 10 places to find engagement rings in Toronto,” said Sarah Dougall, Founder at Made You Look. “Our team is dedicated to creating pieces that are uniquely beautiful, just like our customers! We are here for all of the folks who do not want to buy their engagement ring at the mall.”

At Made You Look, we take pride in our commitment to showcasing the work of independent designers, ensuring that each engagement ring tells a one-of-a-kind story. Our boutique’s curated collection spans a wide range of styles, from classic and timeless to contemporary and avant-garde, allowing couples to find the perfect symbol of their love. BlogTO’s recognition is a testament to our continuous efforts to elevate the engagement ring shopping experience in Toronto!

To celebrate our nomination, we pulled out some of our press features in the newspapers over the years (remember those?!). We hope you enjoy looking through these memories as much as we do. We’ve been blessed with wonderful clients and lifelong friends that we’ve made in the 20 years we’ve been here on Queen West. We look forward to meeting even more in the next 20 years!
