In our community
We’re proud to be a Newfoundland and Labrador company, and committed to supporting our community.
For four generations, we have been as passionate about giving back to our community as we are about beautiful jewellery. Since we’re locally owned and operated, we choose to focus our fundraising efforts on groups that have a significant impact here at home.
Please join us in supporting these great organizations, and join our mailing list to stay informed about upcoming galas and community fundraising events.
