Bijouterie OroSpecialists (Jewellers)
Well let's see, you can pay full price for gold jewelry right in the heart of downtown or you walk a few steps away, go up to a wholesaler and save half your money. Since 1987, this 3rd generation jeweler has been selling wholesale and has finally decided to open up to the public. Lucky us.
There is lots of golden stock to choose amongst, more than you would see in your small local jewelry store. You could go nutsy over the vast assortment of gold hoop earrings - they sell them by weight. You can select amongst the 100's of chains; They are strong in 2-tone and 3-colors of gold from Italy or Turkey. There's 14 carat Italian chain bracelets too and lots of little religious pendants, perfect for gifts for all those special occasions.
If you've been looking for illusion diamond studs, they have those too. These earrings give the illusion of a whole stone but are made up of little ones - for a much littler price.
If you want to change an old diamond (or any other precious stone) ring into something more modern, they can show you trays and trays of semi-mounts (that's what your stone sits in) so you an see exactly what your ring it will look like - and you can try it on.
Bijouterie Oro still does local manufacturing and can reproduce from a photo a piece of jewelry that you've found and that you love. Making Grandma's ring into something more you, or re-modeling of jewelry which has been just sitting in your jewelry box is easily accomplished here. And sure, they can repair your broken jewelry too.
If you make something it from scratch, it would take only two weeks from the time you walk in the door until you are happily wearing it.
