Why did you pick Mount Pleasant Village?
I really liked the look and feel of the street. So many unique little businesses..I thought it was very quaint.
What is the most meaningful comment you've received since you've opened?
The most recent one I can think of is from a client who said that I really captured her essence in a beautiful custom made yellow diamond ring that I designed and made for her.
What specialty sets your business apart from competitors?
We make everything in the store. The designs are all made by the owner Linda Penwarden. We specialize in custom or bespoke jewellery.
What were you doing before you opened your business?
I was a custom jewellery designer and goldsmith working out of my basement at home. I have also worked for other jewellers.
What has changed about your business since you first opened?
The price of precious metals and gem stones have really increased in price and there is a lot of online stores giving us competition.
What do you enjoy most about your business?
It is all about celebrating a moment or an event so we have many many happy people coming in to the store. A lot of couples in love getting married or engaged. We love seeing or hearing about a very positive reaction to our jewellery. Some people have even cried!!
What's a fun fact about your business?
We are very pet friendly!! Bring Fido in to shop too!!
