Picking the Perfect Jewellery for your loved ones!

One diamond bangle in between four diamond rings

When you want to mark a momentous occasion, diamond jewellery does it like no other gift.

Why is that, you ask? Well…

Flowers wilt, a nice meal lasts a couple hours, a gift card gets spent: but the right designed jewellery will last a lifetime and every time your loved one’s looks at it, or hopefully wears it, they will remember this special moment.

Diamond Jewellery is really the best option to commemorate a truly special moment. But how do you pick out a beautiful, quality designed jewellery that she love?

And, even more so, how do you make sure you’re not getting taken for a ride by a shady dealer?

How to Get a Special Jewellery Design For their Unique Tastes

1. Get to know her jewellery style & what she wants:

Simply looking at the pieces she wears can tell you a lot. Does she like bigger more prominent jewels, or does she lean toward more minimal delicate pieces? The ones she saves for special occasions where she wants to dress up and feel beautiful are likely her favourite pieces. Pay particular attention to those styles.

Most women will also give you some hints as to the type of pieces they like to wear, often even stating preferences aloud. So, think back to any hints she may have already given.

Or, if you want more feedback, you can even ask some subtle questions about the jewellery she wears. Simply notice something she has on, compliment her about it and ask a question about the gemstone, or the style if you can fit one naturally into the conversation. This is a good way to get her talking about her jewellery style preferences.

If you have any pictures of her wearing visible jewellery from special occasions, those can be a wonderful resource to get an idea of her favourites. You can even bring the images in to an experienced jeweler to give you an expert eye in identifying what she’ll really love.

2. Identify what type of jewellery design you want to get

Identify what type of jewellery design you want to get
A jeweller might be able to help you here, but you’ll want to identify what sort of present you’re looking for. Do you want to get her a necklace? Earrings? A full matching set?

3. If you’re celebrating an occasion: think about how the piece can relate to the special event

If you really want to step it up a notch and immortalize this important moment, think about how the piece can connect to the celebration.

If you’re really keen on creating a special, unique piece to connect to her, personally, then consider finding good custom jewelers to make something truly one-of-a-kind where all the work is done in-house and on premises.

4. Know your budget

It’s important to establish a realistic budget for your quality piece. This way, when you seek the advice of your expert jeweler, you’ll be able to communicate what you can afford and they can help you find the perfect gift that matches what you can spend.

Finding a Trustworthy Specialist Jeweler in Toronto

Unless you intend to spend years gathering the knowledge, tools and ability to assess gemstones and jewellery yourself… you’ll likely want to focus on finding a jeweller you can trust to help you choose a gift. This is the best way to protect your investment, and make sure you get a great quality gift for your loved one!

1. Established

One of the highest indicators of a trustworthy store is the years it has been in business. You don’t get to be an established business in a community for decades if you’re in the business of cheating people.

An established business is also more likely to stay in business, which means they’ll be able to honour any guarantees and warranties they offer for your piece. A warranty won’t do you any good if this is a company that will close up shop and move on to another location to find new suckers.

A long-lasting, established business is the number 1 must-have.

Another addition to this point is that an established and consistent location or storefront is much more easy to validate than an online business in this respect. If you can directly visit a showroom, that can help you to ensure the business has been part of a community for a while.

2. Reputation

Check for reviews or testimonials. Not just on the business’s established website, but on platforms where they can’t pick and choose which reviews to show you. For example, on Yelp, or on their Social Media platforms.

3. Guarantees

Guarantees come in a few forms when it comes to jewellery, and you’ll want to look for all of these:

  1. Long warranties: a good Toronto jeweler will offer warranties to ensure you are getting a long-lasting quality item.
  2. Appraisals: Expensive gems should come with an assurance of the authenticity and value. A good jeweler will offer appraisal documents with their high-value products. Ideally, the appraisal should be carried out by an impartial 3rd party, rather than the jeweler themselves.
  3. The jeweler should also be able to show you a stamp authenticating the quality of the metal if you ask for one, not just the gemstones.

4. Specialization & Credentials

Slightly different from being established, you’ll want to ensure your jeweler has the necessary certifications and experience to validate their expertise on the subject. Depending on what services you’re looking for, the necessary certifications can vary. If you’re looking for custom work you’ll want to ensure a certified gemologist, and a certified goldsmith, and/or a certified model maker are on the premises. But, the most important thing in regards to credentials is in the Guarantees section, the appraisal of the jewellery itself matters most!

5. Caring

One of the most important factors in choosing any jeweler is the simple question: do you trust them? When you meet with them do they make you feel that they are listening to what you want? Are they trying to push you to higher ticket items without paying attention to your (realistic) budget, or what sort of a gift you’d like to get?

Do they seem knowledgeable? Are they able to answer all your questions?

The right certified jeweler should make you feel like they care what you want, they care about your needs and budget, and they care about helping you find something that will be a perfect gift for your loved ones.

If you are looking for a specialized goldsmith’s, GIA certified gemologists, and an in-house custom design jeweler team in Toronto for a memorable gift, get in touch with Arax Jewellery.

I had the pleasure of meeting Sev at this lovely store and am very delighted with his friendly, professional service. I had stepped in to see if I could get my watch bracelet shortened and it was fixed at no charge. While here, I noticed they have very pretty jewellery here and Sev took his time to show me some of the pieces. Considering the price of gold right now, I thought the prices were very reasonable. If you are looking for quality pieces and great service, you'll sure to find it here.

I got my medical alert chain fixed by Sev. He was very kind & quick with the service, not to mention he cleaned it for me without me asking! The whole service is free & I appreciate that so much since medical alerts are very important for a person to have on them. Couldn't be any happier with the service I received.

Arax Jewellery is fast, efficient and extremely friendly. I came in near closing time with my fiance to get her engagement ring resized and was advised that it should be completed and available for pick up the next day. Arax Jewellery kept their word and I was able to pick up the newly resized engagement ring the next day. The ring was polished and was resized flawlessly. My fiance and I are very happy with the finished ring. Thank you Arax Jewellery, the ring perfectly fits my fiance's finger and is amazed by how polished it looks!

I went to this jeweller to purchase a Rolex watch and he gave me a fake appraisal not even stamped and when I took it to a professional jeweller they appraised it with a GIA Certificates and unfortunately the watch was fake not even a real Rolex. Please people stay away from this scammer, he sells fake Rolex Watches and give fake appraisals for $200 wow $200 just for a piece of paper not even GIA!!!

Wonderful service and really kind gentleman. I went in to remove quite a few links for a watch for my mother. The job was more complicated than normal because it's an expanding link watch, but 15 mins later it was all done. He refused to take any payment even though I repeatedly offered to. I really appreciated his generosity and kindness and highly recommend Arax.

I am astounded at the level of communication and service. My experience with them guarantees I will be back.Edit: I just did another transaction with Arax. My opinion above has only changed in that I wish I could add another star or five. Sevag could be giving lessons in communication and customer service, as well as politeness and friendliness. He took my dumb questions and stayed patient through the information I did not know. Just wonderful.

Phoned ahead about the possibility of getting a watch resized. Very friendly gentlemen answered the phone and advised it was certainly possible and would take around 10 minutes with no charge for their time.Ended up walking in later today with my fiancee in tow as she also had a watch to be resized. Thankfully the gentleman accommodated us on the spot and we were in and out very quickly. Service was extremely friendly and we spoke about time pieces and their lineup of jewelry while we waited.Family run business that I wouldnt hesitate to buy from.Thank you for the help.Chris

This year my husband and I celebrate our 10th year together as a couple. As a celebratory gift, we decided to get my engagement ring and wedding band remade from white to yellow gold.We chose Arax primarily because of their positive reviews. From the initial consultation to final pick up, Sevag took excellent care of us. He understood immediately what we wanted and was very knowledgeable.Three weeks later, I picked up my rings and I couldn’t be happier. When you entrust someone with something as sentimental as your wedding rings, you want to make sure they’re reputable and are going to take the time to do the job right. Thank you Arax Jewellery for making me fall in love with my rings all over again!

I honestly can't say enough great things about this place. I inquired about having my wife's engagement ring repaired and without a moment's notice I was taken care of. I was even more blown away at their speed of service, finishing the job so I could surprise her Christmas morning.Not only was everyone extremely professional, but the customer service was absolutely phenomenal. It is true that you will be treated like family. Please feel free to consider me your newest lifetime customer. I can't wait to come back and shop with you all again. Happy Holidays!

I went into the store because I was looking to replace a chain and they happened to be in the plaza I was shopping in. I actually had stopped at a different jeweller but there was no parking, so I landed up at the York Mills plaza. Sevag was very personable, professional, and not only had the perfect chain I was looking for, but offered to custom make the charm to match the chain. The price was exceptionally reasonable, and he had the custom piece made, wrapped, and a hand written note of thanks, within 3 hours. I'm not a big jewellery wearer, but I can honestly say that I will return without hesitation on my next purchase. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my piece! Thank you Sevag - you delivered exactly as you said you would. 10 stars!

From their first store at the Don Mills Mall, to their new location, one thing remains the same. They treat you like family. I've kept a pair of my favorite earrings in their original box (from 10+ years ago) until I could bring them in and have my missing backing replaced. The warmth that these gentlemen radiate is beyond words and is clear in their customer service. Thank you a million!

Very rude encounter with the owner. I was trying to sell a diamond ring last month and Arax is the only place that I got very unprofessional response from. Like many others You could have said you are not interested instead of saying the diamond is worthless and I'm lucky if I can get anything for it. Unless you want to low ball me there is no need to say something like that.

The search to acquire my first Ball watch ended when I reached out to Sevag from Arax in Ontario as Manitoba does not have an Authorized Ball watch Dealer.Arax Being an Authorized Ball watch Dealer I e-mailed Sevag to see if he could get me the Ball Hydrocarbon Submarine Warfare.Within a couple of days and a couple of conversations on the phone the deal was closed.The watch was ordered on the 23rd of October and I received it on my doorstep on November 1 st.Sevag made the whole transaction from the first e-mail to the package delivered to my door worry and hasel free. For me it was a big purchase but I had trust in Sevag and he delivered.Thnk you.

These guys were great particularly Sevag . Brought my ancient Medical Alert Silver (gift) bracelet in as had lost due to link falling off/breaking. They do free repairs to Medical Alert bracelets which saved me $40 compared to mall Jeweler store. I opted to have phone # engraved on it since was not there already and price/time was very reasonable and came back polished which was a nice touch. When it comes to Jewelry it all about trust and they have earned mine.

So happy with the tremendous care I have received! After my father's death, I had his ring enlarged to fit me. There were some challenges getting it done, but the staff at Arax Jewellery were persistent and got it to work- which was greatly appreciated as this ring has such sentimental value to me. I highly recommend Arax Jewellery. Fantastic customer service!!!

I first went to Arax Jewellery many years ago at the Don Mills Shopping Centre. I bought several pieces of jewellery there than, and I was SO impressed with the way I was treated. What I call the Old Fashion way because I cannot remember the last time I was treated this way in any store, for many many years. Sincere kind words of wisdom, honesty and highly professional. I was sad to see the mall demolished and with that the disappearing of my favourite jewelry store Arax. Now, many years later, they are back in my neighbourhood at 808 York Mills Road at York Mills Gardens. I am so pleased to see them back here. I brought in several rings that had to be enlarged as well as a pearl earring that was part of a set, necklace, ring, earrings, that I had bought many many years ago at Arax. Something was broken of the earring and the pearl had fallen out, probably from wearing them so often. In the end Eddie did not charge me for fixing a post that was broken on that earring, glueing the pearl back in PLUS taking out all the other pearls and glueing them back to make sure I would not loose any pearls. Imagine, MANY MANY years later Eddie still gives me quality Customer Service! The rings look beautiful, like brand new and I am SO happy to be able to wear them again.I recommend Arax Jewelry to ANYONE looking for that SPECIAL gift for that SPECIAL someone.You shall NOT be disappointed in the quality of Craftsmanship nor in the amazing friendly Customer Service.Be well Eddie, all the best to you and your family.I’ll be back.Tonny Clarke.

This weekend my partner and I dropped by to have a watch battery replaced in a Skagen watch. This was our first visit to the store and we were warmly welcomed by the team. We were truly impressed with the modern hand crafted pieces on display. They truly are wearable works of art.

He’s as honest as they come.Thanks again Sevag! You’re a good man.
