If what’s glitters is gold, then Calgary Jewellery is 17th avenue’s own gold mine. Three generations of the Florence family has overseen an evolution in design and sophisticated curation within Calgary’s bustling city scene. Established in 1955, their iconic company clearly stands the test of time with their recent celebration of 60 sparkling years.
And what better way to watch the time go by than with a timepiece from Calgary’s largest selection of timepieces. They also carry exclusive jewellery brands and a wide selection of bridal brands, writing instruments, crystal and giftware.
The feeling of family resonates within the store – the qualified staff await your arrival and welcome you into the shop as though you have entered their home. When speaking with Jonathan, he describes the businesses’ lasting power as a result of true creativity and inspiration, starting from his grandparents and continuing with the following generation.
The Florence family “started from the ground up” and forged the path for success. Bernard brought “his passion and adaptability to understanding the market” but most importantly “shines creativity.” Clients leave with more than the luxury item itself, and are part of the Calgary Jewellery family. Jonathan says “to make a company last for this long it definitely takes passion, creativity and personalized service.”
The Florence family’s ideology is clearly represented by the pieces they carry – Opera Omnia focuses its efforts on building a “new, strong and distinctive identity” through style and values “that reflect the post modern world of luxury.”
And ‘Designs by Bernard’ is the Florence family’s own custom jewellery line, guided by Bernard’s own savvy opulence. This is family advice we suggest you take.
