The ultimate charm bracelet. Over 50 grams of solid 18 karat yellow gold. Not the light weight, hollow, diluted 10 karat gold typical of this type of bracelet. In the 1970s gold was only worth around 0.00 per ounce so manufacturers were not afraid to make high quality jewellery with lots of gold. 40 plus years ago this bracelet would have cost around 0.00. If you could find a new bracelet of this quality today I would expect to see a price tag of around 00.00. All 18 of the square section oval links look like new aside from a little patina. There is no visible wear of any kind, the links do not have any thin sections. A white gold plunger type catch secures the heavy bracelet with a positive reassuring snap.

Cartier inspired without the Cartier price point this hinged hollow bracelet is a timeless fashion statement. The 8 gram heavy hollow piece is made from calm 10 karat yellow gold and features a trio of bright I1-HI round brilliant cut diamonds. Protectively set into raised bezels with an estimated combined weight of 0.15 carats. The true genius of the bangle lies in it’s catch.

To keep the bangle looking sleek the Italian innovators created a double locking white gold plunger clasp with its own built in safety catch. Estate price 0.00 CAD. Stock #e11341.

It’s refreshing to see a nice bracelet like this one show up from time to time. From the moment you pick it up the quality is easy to feel.

Is this a bracelet first or a watch? We prefer to think of it as a bracelet that also tells time. From the house of Piaget Switzerland comes this solid 18 karat yellow gold Polo. Back in the 1980s the Piaget Polo was one of the hottest watches around. Thin was in and thin was a Piaget specialty; in the 1950s they produced a fully adjusted hand wind movement that measured only 2mm thick. The Polo design took the thin concept one step further when it was integrated into a flexible link bracelet. Our latest estate watch is our first Piaget to date and it’s a beauty. The original Polo was Piaget’s most popular model accounting for around 1/3 of their total sales. The case and bracelet seamlessly blend together in a graceful taper to the buckle. Even the dial has be treated to an alternating polished/brushed finish that perfectly matches the bracelet pattern. A standard setting crown vertically placed at 3:00 o’clock would ruin the aesthetics. Piaget’s proprietary quartz movement concealed the setting crown horizontally on the case back allowing a perfectly symmetrical balanced look.Included with the watch is a February 1986 appraisal in the name of the original owner. The appraisal describes the gents Piaget Polo watch style number 7131-c701 with an estimated replacement cost of,500.00 USD. This was a very expensive watch in its day. A brand new top of the line Chevrolet Camaro would have cost less than this watch did in 1986. Made exclusively from premium 18 karat yellow gold the watch weighs about the same as a Rolex Day Date but unlike the Rolex, Piaget bracelet links are completely solid. At 141.2 grams including the quartz movement the value of just the gold in this watch is around 00.00 CAD. For comparison, a brand new Italian made 18 karat gold bracelet of similar weight would be a great deal priced at,000.00. This watch could be worn by a man or woman, it measures 25mm wide and will fit a wrist size of up to 18.5cm. We have 8 never used extra link sections from a smaller Piaget Polo. The extra links allow the total potential length to over 21cm. These links can be used in the larger watch as they are only a couple of millimeters narrower. The extra links are being offered for only gold value but only with the purchase of the larger watch. The condition is almost like new. There is zero stretch or wear in any of the links. The finish appears original showing only some shallow scuffs and scratches. Including the original operating manual, 1986 appraisal and a complimentary 1 year Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers warranty this one owner Piaget classic is estate priced at 00.00 CAD. Stock #e11354.

A large portion of our estate blog speaks to faceted stones and their ability to bend and manipulate light in unique and mesmerizing ways. What we’ve not discussed is the interesting optical effects that gold can have when polished and expertly engraved. There is no better example of those effects than in this 24.1 gram 18 karat white gold bangle that displays three different patterns. Each equally striking; rolling, curling and breaking up the light to give the impression of constant whirling motion. The features are created by thousands of microscopically etched parallel groves. To really take in the effects of precision patterned gold and to truly appreciate the very high quality of this bangle you must see it in person. It’s secured by the best bangle closure we’ve encountered, under so much tension it has no real use for the button release box catch it’s been equipped with.

From one of Italy’s finest gold jewellery manufacturers comes this perfect condition hinged bangle bracelet. The 14 karat yellow gold bracelet is constructed from 10.8 grams of 6mm seamless hollow tubing that has been twisted and embossed with a negative diamond plate design. The clever pattern makes the bracelet much stronger and more resistant to dings and scratches compared to a plain polished tubular style. Unless it gets a major dent this bracelet will continue to look like new for as long as you own it. Sometimes bracelets can be difficult to put on by yourself since you only have one available hand to get the catch closed. The intelligently designed bangle has a spring loaded self centring closure along with a side safety clasp making it simple to put on. The bracelet is fully stamped with the factory trade marks plus the karat purity of 58.5% and BREV stamp, short for “brevetto”.

Subtle sophistication is the underlying theme of most Italian chain work and certainly for this necklace and bracelet set. The mixed link style uses elongated ovals for unity and three distinct patterns for interest. The doubled up patterned links roll into open birdcages during wear, giving the set volume. The 14.5 gram set is quite hollow and requires mindful wear, especially for the bracelet. To add longevity the bracelet can instead be discretely attached to the necklace for a total length of 26 inches. Made from high quality 18 karat yellow gold the versatile set will add warmth to any occasion. Estate price 0.00 CAD. Stock #e11044.

Nothing gives us a greater sense of pride than showcasing incredible pieces of antique, vintage and estate jewellery at remarkable prices. There’s nothing more discouraging than the typical, mass produced, average quality jewellery you’re likely to encounter at an ordinary jewellery store. You know what I’m talking about; light gauge, low karat creations that are marketed specifically to the uninformed jewellery consumer. These products offer little value at any price and feature dull, drab diamonds that look more like specks of table salt. Finding exceptional value is pretty easy once you look at the components that go into the construction. This hinged bracelet was fabricated from almost 42 grams of high quality (75% purity), rich, traditional colour 18 karat yellow gold. The 332 small brilliant cut diamonds that total 2.72 carats in weight are of SI clarity, have a strong H colour and are all of very good cut. No question the basic components are top quality and the manufacture is equally impressive. Each little diamond has been tightly micro pave set by a proper 4 bead technique or half bezel/bead for the outer edges. This style ensures the diamonds stay put and have excellent resistance to wear and tear. The pilot hole that each stone sits in have been fully drilled through with perfect spacing. Esthetically attractive but also functional allowing the piece to easily be cleaned inside and out. The strong plunger clasp with side safety was made from white gold which has a better spring quality than yellow gold resulting in a more secure clasp. A heart shaped cut out on the receiving side adds a lovely secret finishing touch. To replace an item of this quality would easily run into five figures when considering the large amount of labour involved with manufacturing such an item. The bracelet is in absolutely perfect condition looking like new old stock. Just a simple cleaning was all it needed. The original pebbled satin finish with highly polished edges is 100% original. We never polished or refinished the bracelet in any way. High quality and a great price equals true value.

Lady’s bracelets are usually 7 inches long and men’s are made 9 inches long. That’s just how it is. Unfortunately not everyone has the same sized wrists. While 7 inches may fit the majority of ladies pretty well, it may not work for you. If you require a smaller size, it’s usually an easy task to remove a link or two. If you need a slightly larger size it can become a little more complicated. Quite often special order modifications on production jewellery is impossible, when the cost is quite a bit more and it can take a long time. If your wrist is slightly larger than average this bracelet should easily fit you. It’s just over 8 inches in length and is proportionately fitted with a conservatively estimated 3.75 carats of round brilliant cut diamonds. The 44 diamonds average SI2 to I1 clarity with a KL colour range. The bracelet is in like new condition showing no wear in the joints or any stretch; it could easily pass for never worn.

Diamond bracelets have always been popular estate items. In fact I wish we had more of them to offer but they don’t come in very often. So when one as pretty as this shows up it makes a welcome addition to our estate jewellery collection. The Art Deco design is very apparent with the geometric shapes found throughout. 17 old mine cut and European cut diamonds ranging in size from approximately 0.18 carats to over 0.30 carats are bead set along the entire length. With an average quality of SI2-I1-JK they sparkle with a unique combination of brilliance and dispersion only made possible by antique diamonds. Old mine cut and early European cut diamonds have very small table facets and tall crowns. This combination promotes the break up of light causing a more colourful display of sparkle when compared to a modern brilliant cut diamond. The 17.1 grams bracelet is of a standard 7 inch length. A tight fold over clasp with safety chain insure the bracelet will stay on your arm. A December 2001 appraisal is included with purchase that describes the hand made bracelet estimating a total diamond weight of 5.75 carats. Our opinion of total weight is a little more conservative at approximately 4.00 carats. Excellent condition showing no worn links or joints. Estate priced at 30.00 CAD. Stock #e8921.

There are times in jewellery where unique, thoughtful design is more eye catching than something diamond encrusted. This rectangular bangle is one of those instances. It draws in the eye with visual tension caused by 4 off set round brilliant cut diamonds. The rule of odds is a subjective principle of design that states groupings in odd numbers create a feel of balance, where even number groupings create competition and tension. Those tension causing 0.12 carats of I1-HI diamonds have been set into a rectangular channel to mirror the geometric bangle.

Something very few people know about sapphires is they come in almost every colour of the spectrum. Within the rainbow of available colours they can show a great range of hue and tone.

Chances are when you think of sapphires a dark blue stone comes to mind. While blue is the traditional colour of sapphire it literally can come in a rainbow of colours.

Chromium, titanium, iron, vanadium help change a normally colourless sapphire to pink, red, yellow, green etc. Each 3.0mm x 3.0mm perfect square has been cut in the same manor as a very well proportioned diamond.

A dash of vibrant red does a great job at highlighting the overall brilliance of diamonds set into rhodium enhanced white gold. The colour is used as an accent, not over powering just enough to add interest through contrast. The extremely well made bracelet certainly deserves that extra attention grabbing pop of colour. Made from 23.4 grams of 14 karat gold the 7 inch long by 7.8mm wide bracelet is in virtually unworn condition. The 1.25 carats of I1-J round brilliant cut diamonds twinkle between highly polished decorative bars. The striking red comes from 1.75 carats of round brilliant cut natural red rubies, surprisingly bright for their petite size. Secured with a sturdy plunger clasp and side safety catch. This tennis bracelet is equally suited for a night out or daily wear. Estate price 60.00 CAD. Stock #e10558.

When you’re working with gold bangles only 1.5mm and 1.4mm wide you don’t often find patterning as thoughtful as this. The swirling layered pattern on the one bangle is, on closer inspection the background pattern of the other bangle. The bright cutting on the second bangle makes the two look completely different at a glance. Leaving that subtle unity as a fun secret for the wearer. It’s not a surprise that the 6.1 gram 14 karat yellow gold pair comes from Birks when you consider the quality and nuanced design. Estate price for the set 0.00 CAD. Stock #e10287

I’ll admit it, I’d never heard of Carrera y Carrera when this amazing piece of jewellery came in. I knew it was something very special because of the quality and quantity of material used in the construction. Manufacturing a cuff bangle bracelet using 26 effectively flawless round brilliant cut diamonds in a piece of jewellery that weighs 50 grams is going to be really really expensive. The details of shadow that the bracelet shows was accomplished by the best use of texture, finish and relief I’ve ever seen in this business. Designs like this are what Carrera y Carrera are known for. I discovered a long and storied history dating back to the 1800s while exploring the Spanish jewellery designer’s website. Jewellery produced by the esteemed firm is more like wearable art or jewellery sculpture. Ten little cherubs decorate the domed surface, each one has a different pose and position. It’s hard to capture the spirit of this item with only a few still photos. 26 top quality VVS-EF round diamonds are arranged in a chevron format on the front that are estimated to weigh 0.67 carats. You’re not likely to come across a higher quality or more exotic piece jewellery. Every once in a while we are fortunate to be able to offer an item like this. Overall condition is almost perfect. Original finish is in excellent condition, only a light ultrasonic cleaning was required to prepare it for sale.

Gold isn’t 0.00 anymore and buying something like this brand new can get pretty costly. The great thing about estate jewellery is that it doesn’t know it’s been previously enjoyed. We can also usually refinish and refurbish gold jewellery to look as good as the day it was first delivered. This Italian made curb link chain was likely made in an era when the price of gold wasn’t anywhere near the 30.00 per ounce Canadian it currently trades at. Solid links, upgraded 14 karat construction and a generous finished weight of over 1 troy ounce make for a luxurious look and feel. Any bracelet made from lesser quality gold with light, hollow and weak links just won’t cut it after you’ve tried this one on. At 9 inches total length this bracelet will fit all but the largest of gentlemen. The total width of 8mm could easily be worn by a lady too if we shorten the length a bit. Lightly polished and looking like new the excellent condition bracelet is estate priced at 40.00 CAD. Stock #e11057.

Natural green quartz, known as Prasiolite, is somewhat rare, especially in gem quality and oddly enough Thunder Bay Canada is one of those rare sources. Because of its rarity almost all green quartz on the market has been heated to change its colour. This kind of treatment has been around for a very long time but was first documented in the early 1600s. With its unique earthy olive tone the gemstone has found its way into statement jewellery for centuries. Our hand made sterling silver bracelet has been gifted with about 50 carats of the unique gem. The 38 gram 8 inch long piece feels almost David Yurman inspired with its oxidized twisted wire accents and head turning bulk. Estate price 8.00 CAD. Stock #e11264.

Royal de Versailles is a Bloor Street staple. It’s a destination Torontonians and tourists flock to for high end jewellery and luxury watches.

Bangles are the type of jewellery usually exposed to a somewhat tough life. They are prone to getting banged around a lot (maybe that’s why they’re called bangles). Scratched and scuffed is usually how they show up around here as estate items. Sometimes they are dented and distorted and are only good for recycling. Imagine our surprise to get a completely unworn matched set! Bangles of this design with these intricately patterns are often pretty marred up from a lifetime of wear by the time we get them. The perfect condition set each measure 8.1mm wide and feature a micro grooved machine cut base texture with faceted edges and bright cut patterned centers. When worn the light plays beautifully across their complex surfaces, throwing flashes of warm light. The bangles are well made from a substantial 10.8 grams and 12.1 grams of hard 10 karat yellow gold, so they should stand up to the challenges of daily wear. Each has an interior diameter of 2.8 inches, perfect for the average to slightly larger wrist or hand. Estate prices 0.00 and 5.00 CAD. Stock numbers e11089 and e11090.

If you’re looking on our website, chances are you like nice jewellery and chances are you like high quality jewellery too. The problem is, finding high quality, great value jewellery with a weak Canadian dollar and gold priced at over 00.00 CAD per ounce can be a challenge. That’s where estate jewellery like this comes in. Just try to find a new comparable item for anything near this price; you can’t even get close. The 14 karat yellow and white gold bracelet weighs close to an ounce at 29 grams. It’s not just yellow gold with a simple wash of white rhodium plating around the diamonds. The entire top section where the diamonds are set has been made from a separate piece of white gold then soldered to the yellow gold base with an invisible seam. Bead set across the top are 27 good sized round brilliant cut diamonds of I1 clarity and “I” colour that total an estimated 1.18 carats in weight. Totally solid construction allows the 3.4mm wide bracelet to be worn every day without concern of denting a fragile hollow section. It’s secured by a plunger style clasp with an additional side safety that snugly locks everything down. Totally refinished and looking great the bracelet is estate priced at 10.00 CAD. Stock #10784.

There’s no substitute for traditional yellow gold. Unique in its qualities and abilities. It is extremely resistant to corrosion, amazingly ductile, the density alone leaves you with a feeling of quality and the rich colour is unlike any other metal. It’s no wonder humans have been attracted and fascinated with it for 5000 years. Diamonds too are completely distinct in the gem world. Renowned for their hardness, durability, brilliance and symbolism. Diamonds are completely different from any other jewel as they are the only gem composed from just a single element. Who could have imagined such a beautiful stone is made completely from just carbon. While diamonds look great in yellow gold, they’re even more spectacular in white gold. White gold allows high colour diamonds to really sparkle. Another characteristic of gold is its ability to be alloyed with other metals resulting in different hues. White gold is produced by adding various combinations of palladium or nickel, occasionally with smaller amounts of copper and zinc. This 7 1/4 inch tennis bracelet contains 52 good sized round brilliant cut diamonds each set in white gold, no simple rhodium plated settings here. It costs more to manufacture jewellery in yellow and white but the results are worth it. This 3.24 carat total diamond weight bracelet is assembled from around 70 different pieces all coming together in one of the nicest bracelets currently in stock. Even the clasp has been given extra attention to detail. The springy sections that keep it secure are made from white gold. White gold is harder than yellow and it has a better memory, making it more secure for clasps. In fact this bracelet has 3 clasps; a plunger clasp, a side safety and a fold over catch underneath. It’s the equivalent of wearing a belt and suspenders in case your pants suffer a wardrobe malfunction. This overachieving bracelet does it with a generous finished weight of 21 grams and the diamond quality is a conservative I1-H quality. Like new condition showing no wear in any of the 25 joints. There’s a ton of value in this item for the estate price of only 00.00 CAD. Stock #e11220.

Statement chains are few and far between, especially so when they come accompanied by a matching bulky bracelet. The fashionable set adds interest to the already striking kings link design with the contrast of brightly rhodium plated white gold oval links. That two tone pattern gives the eye somewhere to rest and appreciate the intricate details of the complex patterns. Both the bracelet and necklace are secured with high quality, specially made spring ring clasps with decorative end caps. The bracelet measures 7 1/2 inches long and the chain measures 18 inches. For some added length the two can be fastened together for a statement making 25 1/2 inches. Considering its hollow nature the heavy gauge 50.3 gram 14 karat set is in great shape, showing next to no wear. Estate price as a set only 48.00 CAD. Stock #e10294.

Nice design, perfect condition and crafted from 41.4 grams of 14 karat gold in Italy. The Italians have a long standing tradition of manufacturing some of the nicest gold jewellery around. The fit and finish of their products are best in the world. Most high end gold necklaces, bracelets and earrings can trace their origin to this part of the world. This necklace/bracelet combination has a soft satin finish on the oval yellow gold sections connected by smaller highly polished white gold square sections. This set is in perfect condition and has likely only been worn a couple times. The flexible joints are tight showing absolutely no gaps between links. Both pieces are secured by white gold plunger types clasps with an additional side safety clasp. A white gold clasp offers more security than a yellow gold version due to white golds superior spring properties. This set is estate priced at 20.00 CAD. Stock #e7755.

The very best thing about silver as a medium is that it is so inexpensive. Artisan jewellers can go as big and creative as they want without the finished product becoming out of reach for most clients. If this 52 gram sterling silver statement piece had been made from 10 karat gold, the cost of the gold content alone would have been close to 00.00. This doesn’t take into account the hours upon hours of labor required to make a one of a kind bracelet like this. Each of the 5 hand textured oval links measure a head turning 33mm long by 23mm wide. The high polished connector links and clasp add visual interest to the bracelet with their contrasting finishes. Estate price 0.00 CAD. Stock #e10678.

A curb link bracelet is one of the most popular styles around. We always have them in stock, both new and estate. The flat oval curb link design is a favorite choice for both men and women. This 14 karat white gold example is unusual in several regards. White gold is a little less common than traditional yellow and the upgraded 14 karat Italian gold is a nice thing to see. The most striking characteristic of course is the fabulous bright cut finish that has been applied to both sides of the 6.0mm bracelet. Each of the tightly placed flat angular depressions act like miniature mirrors reflecting light and twinkling. The effect almost makes you think there are hundreds of tiny diamonds set throughout the 8 inch long bracelet. Manufactured with full and completely solid links the piece weighs a significant 13.3 grams. Secured by a sturdy and easy to use lobster clasp. At just over 8 inches in length the bracelet should fit most women. Makes a great everyday jewellery item with lots of bling that you don’t need to worry about. It’s a wear it and forget it item. Excellent condition showing little wear. The clasp and flat ends are showing scratches but this can easily be polished and rhodium plated to look like new. Estate priced at 5.00 CAD. Stock #e10776.

Before electroforming was invented hollow statement making chains were die cut from thin sheet. The die cutting could also be set up to create three dimensional forms for added strength and visual interest. Some links, like the ones on this set, were made butterflied and during assembly folded in half linking one onto the next like a daisy chain. That chain making process, developed during the industrial revolution, created chains without a weak point. Being solder free and of a consistent metal thickness all areas of the chain are equally strong and resilient. This early form of hollow chain production still required a relatively thick starting material so it’s not surprising that this “hollow” chain and bracelet set still weigh in at 28.6 grams of warm yellow 18 karat gold. The decorative links that make up the 19 inch long necklace and 7 3/4 inch long bracelet are in great shape thanks to their manufacturing. Both pieces are equipped with sturdy end caps and large, easy to fasten lobster clasps. Estate price for the set only 80.00 CAD. Stock #e10295.

There are very few 18 karat gents gold bracelets passing through our estate department. Most are 10 karat with the occasional 14 karat mixed in, but they are almost never 18 karat. When you get into bracelets that are as substantial as this 11mm wide x 2mm thick flattened curb link style the price really sores if you’re considering something like this brand new. This estate example weighs in at a hefty 29 grams. The 8 inch long bracelet should fit the average to slightly bigger gentleman’s wrist.

It’s in excellent condition showing no wear in any of the links or the heavy lobster clasp.

Hand made, looking like it was crafted sometime in the 1960s this bracelet was way ahead of its time. It could be a key component of a modern jewellery collection and definitely something you’ll likely not encounter again. The high polished 18 karat yellow gold links nicely reflect light into the 11 natural forest green tourmalines, brightening them up and really bringing them to life. Although we didn’t remove each stone to weigh individually, by mathematical formula we conservatively estimate the total gem weight at over 8 carats. This yellow and deep green colour combination is pretty rare and needs to be seen in person for full impact. The 14.4 gram bracelet comes equipped with a handmade box catch and additional safety catch for added security. Estate price 00.00 CAD. Stock #e9494.

If vintage had a defining look in a piece of jewellery this tiled bracelet could well be it. The mosaic that stretches the 20mm wide monumental piece carries multiple levels of intricate detail. The 244 links are engraved with six complementing finishes. Patterned among the majority of yellow gold links are contrasting solid rose and white gold links, no simple coloured rhodium and plated sections here. The work instantly feels antique though the techniques used are post industrial revolution. Still not surprising to find the seven and a half inch bracelet was made by those Italian masters of gold. As is their way the piece consists of an impressive 61.5 grams of rich premium quality 18 karat gold. The mid 20th century bracelet comes well secured with an extra strong white gold box catch and two safety locks. Time capsule condition. To our knowledge it has never been polished or refinished in any way. These are rarely encountered in any condition let along practically unworn and exhibiting zero stretch.

Ever notice those glossy, slick jewellery store flyers you get delivered in your newspaper? If your looking at our website I’m sure you at least occasionally thumb through them. I guarantee that if they show a simple chain necklace or bracelet like this they’ll not provide a crucial bit of information, THE WEIGHT!!! They may say things like heavy, thick, large and that it’s on sale at 30, 40, 50% off or more but all this tells you absolutely nothing.

That this bangle should have been made in Hawaii is extremely fitting. The lighter tone lilac of the 7.80 carats of natural tanzanites certainly evoke images of large tropical blooms growing along a lush beach front. The vibrant gems are bracketed by pairs of I2-K round brilliant cut diamonds, adding a subtle sparkle to the piece. Together the diamonds add an estimated 1.00 carat total weight. No surprise these ingredients should be held in a sturdy 20.5 gram 14 karat yellow gold bangle. The well made piece is thoughtfully equipped with a white gold box catch for extra spring and durability. For that final touch of security the clasp has been backed up with a strong side safety catch. The bangle is proudly stamped MADE IN USA and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity with an estimated insurance replacement value of 50.20 USD back in 2006 when gold was trading at just 0.00 CAD. We feel an appropriate replacement value today with gold levels at over 00.00 CAD is closer to 00.00 Canadian. The bracelet is estate priced at 00.00 CAD. Stock #e10945.

There is almost exactly 1/2 a troy ounce of 14 karat white gold in this 7 inch tennis bracelet. If you had to replace just the bracelet without any diamonds it would cost you around 00.00. Each one of the 50 diamonds measure just under 3mm diameter and are estimated to weigh 1/10th of a carat. The diamonds are not perfect but they sparkle and twinkle pretty well with a reasonable J colour and I2 clarity. Considering they cost less than.00 each including the bracelet illustrates the great value this estate item has. No extra decorative gold, no illusion settings making tiny diamonds look bigger. Just a solid string of good sized bling. Sometimes this is what jewellery is all about; letting the natural beauty of precious gems do their thing. It’s also very hard for an item without any specific style to go out of style. The bracelet is in excellent condition showing almost no wear and tear. Engineered in a clever way so it will not roll down your wrist, the diamonds will always be facing the right direction. Hinged joints are in great shape as is the spring loaded tongue catch with side safety.

What we often see with tennis bracelets is compromise. The tennis bracelet is one of the most time consuming and expensive pieces of jewellery to make. So manufacturers will find any way possible to shave off gold weight, diamond size or quality, and assembly costs. This 18.4 gram brightly rhodium plated 14 karat white gold bracelet however is the exact contradiction to that rule. Each heavy, well made link has been joined to its neighbor with a heavy 4 section rivet with capped ends to protect the hinge pin from dirt. This is important as dirt acts as a cutting agent and over years will wear every single joint of your tennis bracelet away to nothing, until it is worn beyond repair. These joints have been built strong and enclosed from the start and with regular cleaning will last a lifetime. Of course the really impressive feature of this bracelet is the 63 I1-JK quality round brilliant cut diamonds that come together to make 2.5 carats. They’ve each been set into heavy, protective partial bezels that are much more secure than the traditional prong style. The 7 inch long bracelet is secured with a hidden plunger clasp and heavy safety catch. Estate price 90.00 CAD. Stock #e9852.

Styles and trends come and go but classic efficient design is timeless. Whether a chain to secure your boat anchor to or a high end Italian 18 karat gold necklace, the basic formula to make a strong effective chain pretty much looks just like this. While this example was made hollow to keep the costs affordable, don’t assume it isn’t well made. Each of the 32 heavy gauge hollow links measure 9.2mm x 6.1mm (about the size of a Tic Tac) and are all invisibly soldered shut making it very strong. The bracelet is showing almost no wear except two small dents in a couple of the links. If we didn’t point them out you’d never even know they were there. While not too heavy you can still feel the quality by running the smooth highly polished links through your fingers. 7 1/2 inches long and weighing 9.3 grams the bracelet is secured by an oversized spring ring clasp.

Back in the day, prim and proper companies like BIRKS almost exclusively manufactured and sourced all of their fine quality jewellery in the commonwealth. Their isn’t much made in 9 karat gold any longer in Canada but many years ago it was the legally recognized standard for items made from gold throughout every Commonwealth country. Even to this day 9 karat is the entry level gold standard for content in Canada, although most Canadian jewellery is alloyed to 10 karat or better. 9 karat gold is typically a soft pinkish yellow colour due to larger portion of copper alloy. Copper produces its unique hue giving the name rose or pink gold, it also has the benefit of making the item a bit harder. The bamboo motif and general style is difficult to date for this item but our best guess would be sometime in the 1960s. The condition is excellent; the hollow construction is scratch and dent free. It likely wasn’t worn very often as the hinged joint is still very stiff. Secured by a push button release plunger clasp plus safety chain will ensure it stays safe on your wrist.

In Asian culture the bangle carries an immense amount of symbolism, different to each country and each region within those countries. Gold bangles are particularly important in Indian culture, used traditionally in wedding and maternity ceremonies and for modern Indian women, as a must have accessory. The type of bangle and use of that bangle in the wedding ceremony differs wildly from province to province, but is most commonly meant to symbolize good fortune, a happy marriage, and the protection of husbands and sons. In certain maternity ceremonies the mother to be will wear many gold bangles to help distract evil spirits from her child and herself and focus them on the tinkling chimes on her wrist. The use of bangles in Western culture is unfortunately purely decorative. This four piece set certainly fulfills the decorative aspect, with each bangle featuring a completely different pattern all of which play with light to a different effect. Worn together the musical set makes for some eye catching adornment. All together they are made from 15.6 grams of durable 10 karat yellow gold. Estate price for the set only 0.00 CAD. Stock #e10297.

The history of XO coming to represent hugs and kisses is long and full of speculation. After much research it seems to be something that came about in the very late 1800s to early 1900s though the history of each symbol dates back to the Romans. These early emoticons of sort have graced countless letters and love notes and eventually transitioned into jewellery as all symbols of love do. The X & O is a natural choice for a bracelet as their shapes are well matched to fit into each other. This particular 7 1/2 inch long bracelet takes the X & O theme a bit further, creating its Xs of two interwoven bands. The high quality Italian made bracelet consists of 9.9 grams of 14 karat yellow gold in alternating high polished and brushed finishes. The 11.6mm wide bracelet is secured by an integrated box catch with additional safety catch. Estate price 0.00 CAD. Stock #e10410.

In 1969 Tiffany & Co. released a line of register key rings inscribed “Please Return to Tiffany & Co. New York”. The idea was simple, lose your keys, you’ll find them at Tiffanys and it was quickly adopted by the stores all over the US. Re released as a throwback to that novel key ring the Return to Tiffanys line quickly became yet another Tiffany jewellery must have. The Return to Tiffany Heart Tag Charm Bracelet is the most iconic of that line. This 35.9 gram sterling silver 7 1/2 inch long bracelet is currently listed on Tiffany’s for 0.00. Our estate version with blue box and travel pouch is estate priced for 0.00 CAD. Stock #e10724.

No jeweler has their designs copied more consistently than Tiffanys. In some cases it is worth their time to pursue, like the lawsuit they just won against Costco, but in cases like their sterling silver bead bracelet there are just too many knockoffs to chase down. Try as the copy cats might there is no competing with that little blue box. The 8 inch long, 10mm bead bracelet is a jewellery icon that immediately reads Tiffany & Co. even though the proof of origins lies on a tiny 6.5mm tag. The stock 7.5 inch version is currently available on Tiffany’s for 5.00 CAD our estate version, with box and travel pouch, is only 5.00 CAD. Stock #e10725.

Imagine if shoes were only sold in two sizes, one size for ladies and one size for men. I’m sure there would be a lot of us walking around barefoot. Unfortunately that’s exactly the case with most bracelets, 7 inches long for women and 8 1/2 to 9 inches long for men. It can be a very frustrating experience for anyone without ‘stock size’ wrists who find themselves needing to buy an additional bracelet just to use for spare links. Or worse, if there is no extra bracelet available, paying to custom make a couple of extra links. This 14 karat yellow gold Figaro link bracelet understands your struggles and is accompanied with two extra links, one short and one long. A quick solder and the bracelet can go from 7 1/2 inches to 8 1/4 inches long, or anywhere in between. Equipped with heavy end caps and a strong lobster clasp for added durability. The 10.9 gram yellow gold bracelet is freshly polished and ready to go. Shortening the existing length is also easily done by one of our onsite goldsmiths in just a day or two. Estate price 0.00 CAD.

A traditional and popular jewellery item has always been the diamond tennis bracelet. Most tennis bracelets are made up from “promotional” quality diamonds. Usually the diamond quality is I2 clarity, JK or lower colour, poorly cut and light weight settings. This bracelet however does not fit that description. The 46 round brilliant cut diamonds are of SI2 to I1 clarity, G colour and very well cut. The 11.4 gram yellow gold setting is in great shape with no wear or stretch in the joints. The bracelet measures 6.5 inches long and is secured by a white gold hidden clasp with a side safety catch. Estate priced at 00.00 CAD (that’s only.00 per diamond). Stock #e6488.

This is the bracelet to convert all the people out there who think rubies aren’t for them. The 9.62 carats of high quality oval faceted rubies are some of the clearest we’ve seen and the colour will mesmerize you in person. At arms length the rubies flash every shade of red from a deep pure red to a light magenta. On closer inspection they almost glow violet under their table facets, but that light disappears completely when draped across the wrist. These pictures really do not do this item the justice it deserves. You need to see this one in person. The rubies are separated and enhanced by 1.45 carats of bright white round brilliant cut diamonds all set in over 11 grams of 18 karat white gold. The extremely well made bracelet will be the highlight of any outfit and is secured by a tight box catch with two safety locks. Estate price 20.00 CAD. Stock #e10171.

Nice to see a tennis bracelet that was made with high quality components. So often we see tennis bracelets made from the lowest karat gold, super light weight construction and diamonds that hardly sparkle because of the low quality selected to keep the price down. There is an old saying that says “you’ll never regret buying quality”. New or estate that saying is true. This bracelet is all about quality. The substantial 13.2 gram 18 karat white gold construction and 20 high quality SI1-GH brilliant cut diamonds set this tennis bracelet apart from most. The 2.00 carats of bezel set diamonds look great contrasting with the highly polished domed oval links. The bracelet is in great shaped showing almost no wear of any kind. We will treat this bracelet to a fresh rhodium plating if the new owner wishes at no charge. The bracelet is estate priced at 60.00 CAD. Stock #e7496.

For something to be defined as vintage, it needs to be at least 20 years old. Meaning that beaten up Titanic VHS you have buried with your DVD collection is now officially considered vintage. Unfortunately that distinction doesn’t add value to your VHS collection or your Spice Girls CDs but it does add value to this 1960s bracelet. The hollow construction 14 karat yellow gold statement piece weighs in at an impressive 38.1 grams. The contrasting convex and concave surfaces accented with a touch of diamond brushed finish help to cement that retro-cool feel. Measuring 17.7mm wide and 7 1/2 inches long the substantial bracelet is appropriately secured with an integrated box link and two safety catches. Estate price 00.00 CAD. Stock #e10676.

Quality you can feel has always been a bit of a theme within our estate department. That hard to find heft of a solid gold bracelet this size always catches people off guard. Nowadays it’s a race to the bottom in terms of price. If price is your only measure of value, mainstream manufactures have no choice but to use absolutely the least amount of low karat gold when making gold jewellery. Very little concession or thought is given to durability, longevity or overall value. Above any other piece of jewellery a bracelet should be made solid, as they take a great amount of wear. This 63.7 gram curb link inspired bracelet is not only made to a near indestructible standard, it’s also been made of top quality 18 karat yellow gold. The fourteen 18mm x 13mm tall decorative links span a nice 7 3/4 inches in length and come equipped with a soldered safety chain and tight fold over clasp. Estate price 00.00 CAD. Stock #e10632.

Gold is an amazing material. It is easily manipulated into almost any shape, it readily blends with other metals producing subtle colour shifts from pink and green to white plus the many shades of yellow of course. It can be alloyed down to only one third of original purity and still be suitable for producing beautiful jewellery items that can be used for many decades. This padlock bracelet was made from the popular English 9 karat rose gold alloy of 37.5% purity. The rose tone of the soft rounded curb links comes from copper that was blended with the gold. Rose gold makes for a hard and long lasting alloy perfect for something like a bracelet. It measures over 7.5 inches and weighs a substantial 22.7 grams. The heart padlock clasp is the highlight of the piece and definitely isn’t just a tool to keep it on your arm. An additional safety chain weaves through the clasp for extra security. The spring loaded clasp is fully hallmarked as all English jewellery made from a precious metal are. Lightly polished and looking like new. The bracelet is in perfect condition showing no wear in the heavy gauge soft rounded links. Very comfortable and substantial, this is a bracelet that can be worn and forgotten about. Estate priced at 0.00 CAD. Stock #e10723.

Charm bracelets have been an exceptionally popular jewellery item for many years now. The Zoppini stainless steel and 18 karat Italian expansion bracelets sold by the thousands with their interchangeable links in the 1990s. For the last decade or so it has been the Pandora charm bracelet craze in sterling silver. This brand has been so popular they have their own stand alone stores. 100 years before these brands came around charm bracelets were on the arms of woman who collected little jewellery trinkets of places travelled, occasions celebrated and memories immortalized. This retro BIRKS charm bracelet was the Pandora of its day in the 1970s and is still being produced today in basically the exact same style. This one however isn’t manufactured from sterling silver but upgraded 14 karat gold. The 7 1/4 inch bracelet weights a substantial 20.2 grams and is in excellent condition showing no stretch or worn links. The little back to back B BIRKS logo is still clearly visible on the back of the box catch along with the karat stamp. Start you own charm collection with this bracelet or you can wear it all on its own, either way the quality is easy to see and feel. A bracelet of this weight and karat gold purchased from BIRKS today would cost over 00.00. Including the blue and cream BIRKS box this bracelet is estate priced at 00.00 CAD. Stock #e10667.

For those of you who have called in or emailed us looking for a heavy Cuban link bracelet or necklace, here’s your chance. The only potential problem; if you have a large wrist this one may be a little short. It’s the perfect length for the slightly smaller wristed gentleman and for most women. At 8 inches long with clasp closed it certainly won’t fit you if you’re a bigger guy. We could always produce a mold of one of the links to potentially extend it to fit anyone. Although extending the bracelet by this method costs more, it could get you exactly what you’ve been looking for. It’s in perfect condition showing no stretch on wear of any kind. The highly polished finish is absolutely perfect. Previously owned by a very particular customer of Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers who really took great care of it, only wearing it a few times. Measuring 9.6mm wide and 4.1mm thick what becomes immediately noticeable is the heft of this item. At just under 1 3/4 ounces the quality is obvious at first touch. The large, easy to manipulate plunger clasp has been made from white gold. White gold is much harder than yellow and also provides a superior, stronger spring action. Two large, heavy fold over side safety catches guarantee once the bracelet is closed it’s not going anywhere. With the price of gold climbing well over 00.00 per ounce Canadian (September 2017), fewer and fewer heavy gold bracelets are manufactured. When they do they are almost always made from much less expensive 10 karat gold. It’s nice to see this bracelet was made from upgraded 14 karat gold. Higher gold content, heavier weight, better resistance to oxidation and corrosion plus a rich gold colour always make 14 karat the choice of people who know and appreciate fine jewellery. Comes complete in our traditional Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers blue and white satin presentation box (gift wrapped if you like). Perfect condition and estate priced at 00.00 CAD. Stock #e10710.

There are so many things that come to mind when describing this shiny golden ball necklace and bracelet set but I’ll keep them to myself.

The two tone gold in this tennis bracelet is only a subtle accent that’s almost lost in the busy brilliance of alternating diamond cuts. The bracelet uses the contrast of step cut baguettes with their long slivers of white, and round brilliant cuts with their kaleidoscopes of refracted rainbow light, to bring out the best in both. All together the 7 inch long bracelet is set with 3.00 carats of I2-LM diamonds made brighter by the original untouched rhodium plating. The 14 gram 14 karat white and yellow gold bracelet is in brand new condition and comes equipped with an integrated plunger clasp with additional safety lock. Estate price 60.00 CAD. Stock #e10595

This bracelet sparkles so brilliantly it takes very careful inspection to realize the money saving trick behind its brilliance. The bright cut illusion settings done in rhodium enhanced 10 karat white gold throw just as much white light as the 135 diamonds they contains. The illusion style setting makes the 0.007 carat single cut diamonds look more like diamonds 10 times the weight. This means the 1.00 carat total weight the 13.7 gram bracelet actually holds appears at a glance to be closer to 7.83 carats. A tennis bracelet of that caliber would be well over 000.00 while this gala ready piece has a competitive retail replacement value of 00.00. Well made and showing no signs of wear what so ever the bracelet is secured with a hidden box catch and two additional safety catches. Estate price 50.00 CAD. Stock #e10395.

In our throw away culture of chic and cheap, vintage is quickly becoming synonymous with quality. As to be vintage means to come from the not so distant past of hand made high quality that was the expected norm of the time. Now this level of quality comes with an inflated premium if you can find it at all. This solidly constructed bangle (though hollow) still weighs in at a hefty 33.4 grams due to the thickness of the sterling silver tubing it’s formed from. Completely free of dents and dings the 18mm wide bangles high quality really speaks for itself. The top half of the bangle has been expertly hand engraved with a floral motif and the bangle is secured with a strong catch and soldered safety chain. Estate price 5.00 CAD. Stock #e10616.

A warmer colour grade does not always mean the diamond has a yellow tone, those LMNOP grades can also represent stones with grey, silver, and brown undertones. The 46 round brilliant cut LM coloured diamonds that wrap around the wrist in this tennis bracelet would fall into the champagne silver tones. Probably the most desirable warmer shade to pair with brightly rhodium plated 10 karat white gold. The champagne body colour blends into the 7 inch long bracelet making it difficult to distinguish where one diamond ends and the next begins. The 3.50 carats of I1 diamonds are well cut, throwing a large amount of brilliance and fire adding to the effect of indistinguishable sparkle. The 10.3 gram bracelet is in brand new condition showing zero sign of wear and comes secured with a hidden plunger style clasp and fold under safety catch. Estate price 60.00 CAD. Stock #e10468.

As a whole the bracelet measures a slightly larger than normal 7 3/4 inches and is secured with a large lobster clasp for easy fastening.

Double strand bracketed diamond bars glint and sparkle with the slightest movement, this seven inch long bracelet would have been right at home on Daisy Buchanan’s wrist. The 182 round single cut SI-HI quality diamonds that cover the bracelet combine for a perfect estimated 1.50 carats of sparkle. Made from 6.7 grams of 14 karat white gold (10 karat catch) the chic little piece retains its bright white rhodium finish. The large lobster clasp is relatively easy to attach with only one hand and provides excellent security. Estate price 00.00 CAD. Stock #e10487.

Computer aided design, 3D printed model, laser welding are all modern tools we use when custom making one of a kind jewellery items for our clients. This beautiful cuff bracelet didn’t use any modern manufacturing techniques. This is a textbook example of old school hand fabricated goldsmithing. Start with a raw piece of 14 karat gold (worth close to 00.00 alone at today’s gold price), roll it flat, hammer the hell out of it and solder on a decorative random scalloped edge around the entire perimeter. Sounds pretty simple but in reality quite a bit of skill is required to bring it all together without blowing holes into it and turning in into a puddle. The 1 inch wide highly polished design is easy to wear with the 29.6 grams of weight evenly distributed. The natural spring of the gold will keep the bracelet in place. A cleverly incorporated clasp securely holds both sides together in perfect alignment. This hand crafted jewellery item is estate priced at 00.00 CAD. Stock #e10451.

For Italian made jewellery this bracelet goes above and beyond the usual tradition of high quality typical for Italy. Made by Italian chain manufacturer this three tone high polished and brushed 18 karat bracelet is one of the best we’ve seen. It’s almost not right to call it hollow when it weighs in at a nearly solid 35 grams. The complex and stunning link pattern measures a statement making 13.6mm wide and a standard 7 1/2 inches long. A bracelet this substantial needs a strong clasp and this hidden box catch fits the bill, especially when accompanied by two additional side safety catches. Estate price for this like new bracelet 30.00 CAD. Stock #e10327.

Quality you can feel is probably the best way to describe this over sized sterling silver bracelet. Weighing in at a hefty 71.2 grams of 925 sterling silver it comes as no surprise that the bracelet is Italian made. A far cry from the hollowed silver pieces you see at many chain stores, this statement piece is made to stand the test of time. At 11.5mm wide the 8 inches of length will wear more like the traditional 7 1/2 inch women’s length. The on trend bracelet is secured by over sized end caps and easy to fasten lobster clasp. It looks much bigger in reality than this picture shows. Estate price 0.00 CAD. Stock #e10503.

Estate white gold link bracelets are few and far between and almost none of them come in retaining their original factory rhodium finish, needing only a light cleaning. This hollow link 7 1/2 inch long bracelet arrived in just that state, showing not even the smallest ding or dent. The twist patterned links measure 8mm wide and 10.5mm long making the 4.8 gram bracelet more than suitable to be worn on its own. It would of course be equally suited to the layered look, paired with a bangle or watch. The bracelet is secured by a strong lobster clasp for easy fastening. Estate price 4.00 CAD. Stock #e10292.

Very few hollow pieces stand the test of time and seldom make it into our estate department, as most do not survive wear without denting. Those that do offer a testament to the quality of their make and ensure that with mindful wear they’ll stand up better than most of their counterparts. This 10mm wide bangle though hollow, was still made from 13.3 grams of 9 karat yellow gold. That extra wall thickness coupled with the lower karat adds a fair bit of hardness and strength. Being 9 karat the piece was made in England for Birks and features a heavy cross hatched pattern all across its exterior walls. The bangle is secured with a strong push button release plunger clasp and a soldered safety chain for extra peace of mind. Estate price 5.00 CAD. Stock #e10289.

Claddagh rings? Sure, we see them all the time, but this is the first time we’ve ever had a Claddagh bracelet. I suppose the same guidelines for Claddagh rings could also apply when wearing a bracelet. So here’s a refresher course in case you’ve forgotten the symbolism and discreet messages the design is said to convey. It’s an Irish tradition steeped in meaning. Made up of three parts, the hands, a heart, and a crown. The design is meant to symbolize the three promises of a relationship, friendship, love, and loyalty. Depending on how it’s worn yellow gold and rhodium enhanced bracelet can say a lot about your relationship status. If your “heart is open” (you’re single) the bracelet would be worn on the right hand facing away from the body. Engaged? It should be worn on the left facing out and turned in toward the body after the wedding. If your “heart is closed” the heart should again be facing toward the body but on the right wrist. The hollow link construction bracelet measures 7 1/4 inches long and is secured by a very strong lobster style clasp. The condition is best described as like new, perfect in every way. We didn’t even need to polish it, just a quick clean in our ultrasonic machine was all that was required. Estate priced at 2.00 CAD. Stock #e10437.

It took a great deal of digging to find any history on this unique Tiffany & Co. bracelet. Not that we doubted its authenticity, with all the right stamps, high quality ingredients, and unparalleled manufacturing, there’s no doubt it’s Tiffanys. But the bracelet is no longer part of a current line and was a rare piece when it was being produced. Hard to imagine why when you consider the timeless and strong solid silver bar and link design accented with equally solid and warm tone 18 karat yellow gold. Being Tiffanys the over sized clasp is a feature instead of merely a tool and follows the gently curving theme of the rest of the bracelet. Weighing in at 23.5 grams the 7 1/2 inch long piece is more than appropriate for a lifetime of every day, all occasion wear. Estate price for the rare bracelet with its original Tiffany & Co. pouch 5.00 CAD. Stock number e10382.

In terms of sheer overwhelming scale, we’ve never had a bracelet like this one. Even if you’re viewing this on a tiny little smart phone screen you should be able to tell this is no ordinary curb link bracelet. Over 20mm wide and 6mm thick, with a weight of 153.4 grams there are not many around that will compare with this. The bracelet was a commissioned piece the former owner had made many years ago when gold was much less costly. It truly is a one of a kind item. We have tried to find super heavy and wide bracelets before; they’re impossible to locate as production items. The width of most production bracelets stops at about 15mm wide, this monster is a full 33% wider. The links are so generously proportioned it only takes 14 to make up the entire 8.5 inches of overall length. There are plenty of guys out there who like massive oversized watches for their left arm; how about this to balance the look? This 14 karat yellow gold creation is in perfect condition as the previous owner only wore it on select occasions. The alternating highly polished and pebbled finish links show like new without any signs of joint wear. The bracelet is secured by an open link and fold over side safety clasp that seamlessly integrate into an endless pattern. It’s fully conceivable that the gold value alone the bracelet contains could easily exceed our estate price if the value of gold continues to climb. With the price of gold at 20.00 per ounce Canadian we have the bracelet estate priced at 50.00 (for now). Recent insurance appraisal comes included. Stock number #e10340.
