  It takes a Village

             You have heard the wisdom of the old adage, "it takes a village" - well, at Gordons it takes Team Gordon to create the magic! Duane and I have invested in the most extraordinary selection of jewellery for our clients, bringing in highly sought after and coveted brands from across Canada and around the world! Gordons’ clients rely on their familiar sales advisor to help navigate the extensive possibilities to best fulfill their desires with Hearts On Fire, Tacori, CanadaMark, Maevona, Gabriel & Co. Stephen Webster, Ponte Vecchio, Lazare, FireCushion, Madani, Les Georgettes, Italgem, Midas and more...

Rosanne Gardiner is the Head Buyer here at Gordons, a tremendously important position. Rosanne delivers the magic on special orders, along with researching trends and bringing only the most important finds to Gordon’s displays for our clients each season. Preparation is a key component in bringing the right products to the counter and it takes time, and brilliant foresight to be ready with just the right mix of Platinum, yellow, rose and white golds - along with gorgeous silver and fun metals for treasure and heirloom seeking clients. 

Platinum is the most noble of metals and highly sought after throughout generations. Currently, the choice or preference in whether to suit your style wearing yellow, rose or white gold, is highly subjective. Chic and fashionable white gold collectors are now adding a rose gold layer to their repertoire. Other fashionistas are becoming fully engaged in the yellow gold revival and also mixing in a white or rose gold layer!

Layering is in vogue and chic; take note of this fine gold and diamond choker necklace, paired with a draping cascade of favourites. Multipurpose items hold a position of high importance to each of us in the thought that "if I can wear it a lot, it’s worth more to me", and holds genuine intrinsic value.

We invite you to revisit the classics, as classics are timeless and true at Gordons. Clients walk into Gordons and ask for Tacori, a brand that delivers on bringing our Gordons’ clients a contemporary heirloom; in this, Tacori rules! Handcrafted the old fashioned way, and having the touch of forty hands, Tacori is made in California and adorns the engagement finger of many of our brides. Tacori and Gordons have a new VIP treatment for our Tacori couples, this being Tacori Journey’s; coupling travel with your Tacori purchase! 

Duane and Rosanne were recounting just why Gordons sells so many engagement rings here in London and why people travel distances from Montreal, Toronto, Hamilton, Stratford, Kincardine and Windsor to purchase their engagement rings with us, and summary analysis indicates it is because of the breadth of selection, price and exceptional service here at Gordons. We are so honoured and proud to be the number one destination for bridal couples and provide these couples with engagement rings they are proud to wear for the rest of their lives! 

Gordons has been honoured as a Hearts on Fire (HOF) Hall of Fame member, our glowing badge of pride, made possible only by our clients’ desire for this superlatively cut diamond - and they asked for it by name! We are very thankful for the loyalty of our clients and the success this has brought to our business.

As you celebrate the special occasions in your life we invite you to visit Gordons! We are here to serve up the most delectable treasures in diamond jewellery! For truly edible treats visit our Gordons’ blog, where we share just how well paired good food and jewellery are for your life celebrations in this month’s issue of "From Duane's Kitchen".
