When it comes to your most cherished jewellery, you want to feel confident that design and repairs are undertaken with the highest level of craftsmanship and quality.
At The Jewellery Clinic, for example, nothing leaves the shop – the vast majority of the work is conducted by their own experienced, professional goldsmiths right onsite, notes Anita, a goldsmith and one of three sisters at the helm of the local, family-owned jewellery shop.
After training at The Jewellery Clinic’s original location, Anita, Charmaine and Nicole were keen to bring the same customer-focused philosophy closer to home and in November, they opened locally to serve South Surrey-WhiteRock.
The three sisters and their families are all long-time area residents who are thrilled to share skilled jewellery design and repairs with their neighbours. “We all live in the community, our children go to school here, we volunteer here,” Anita says.
In all, three goldsmiths work onsite – including one boasting more than 30 years of experience – and customers appreciate the team’s transparent approach to their work.
“When you come here, the first thing we do is test the diamond, stones and gold under the microscope and make a drawing with any distinguishable features,” explains Anita, who looks after most of the shop’s stone-setting. “And people can watch us work through clear windows looking into the workshop!”
Get creative with your local jewellers
Using a CAD design and 3D printer or wax carving, depending on the intricacy of the design, we work directly with clients to create a unique design, then cast the piece using new or previously loved materials.
“The creativity and the opportunity to create something beautiful and meaningful for our customers is just so rewarding,” Anita says.
What kind of gemstones? Choosing the right diamond involves more that carats, and while all The Jewellery Clinic’s diamonds are ethically sourced, you can choose stones from around the world, including Canada. There are even lab-grown diamonds that can rival their naturally occurring counterparts for cut, colour and clarity.
