Put a ring on it at these Toronto custom jewellery shops

We don’t see much point in going to a jewellery store to buy a piece designed to someone else’s taste. The aesthetic may be close to what you’re looking for, but never exact. So go on – treat yourself to a custom piece of jewellery at one of these Toronto stores.

Made You Look

1338 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6K 1L4

Rough-and-ready Parkdale has a bright, new sheen and one of the best things to come out of its makeover is this jewellery store, a shop concerned with all things precious. If you’re thinking of popping the question, buying an anniversary gift or just splurging on yourself, you can bet they’ll have something that catches your eye. But go for a commissioned piece – you’ll be the only person in the world wearing it.

Flux & Form Jewellery

49 Roncesvalles Ave, Toronto, ON M6R 2K5

Jewellery – especially a diamond – is supposed to last forever, but there are so many pieces that get tossed aside. Luckily, two women started paying attention to where those cast-offs went and began using them to create new pieces of jewellery. It’s recycling at its finest, and that means you can knock off both the “something old” and “something new” parts of your wedding list at the same time with one of these rings. We call this a win all-around.

Mark Lash Fine Jewelry

480 Eglinton Ave W, Toronto, ON M5N 1A5

He counts celebs such as Howie Mandel, Bruno Mars, Nick Cannon and John Legend as part of his huge client base, so you know he’s got serious ability to give people exactly what they want. There’s nothing terribly ostentatious or overdone with Mark’s work, just a deeply-driven desire to create jewellery that’ll look good in every era. His line consists of a balance between imported and bespoke jewellery, and you know that anything from either category will always look fabulous.

Anne Sportun Jewellery

742 Queen W, Toronto, ON M6J 1E9

She started her craft as a teenager, making jewellery in her father’s basement workshop, and soon showed such a gift that Canada Post featured her bejeweled hands on a postage stamp in 2003. It’s safe to say that Anne knows what she’s doing, with one of her strongest skills the ability to interpret clients’ dreams into concrete representations. Jewellery is one of the rare things that lasts a lifetime, so invest in a quality piece that will make you feel sophisticated every time you wear it.
