Award-win­ning fine jew­ellery de­signer Shelly Purdy is known to be a big ad­vo­cate of Cana­dian di­a­monds. An eclec­tic artist, Shelly has come up with some di­verse lines that are awein­spir­ing.

The Bound col­lec­tion re­volves around ties that bind… bound by love, bound by friend­ship, bound by mem­o­ries. This un­con­ven­tional col­lec­tion is crafted in warm tones of 14-karat yel­low and rose gold em­bel­lished with one-of-a-kind rose-cut di­a­monds.

The Vin­tage Op­u­lence tar­gets mil­len­ni­als who can get a taste of the past through this line, which is a throw­back to Vic­to­rian de­sign with a modern in­ter­pre­ta­tion. The hand­made en­gage­ment rings and bands pair the lux­u­ri­ous hue of 14-karat rose gold with the unique sparkle of domed rose-cut white di­a­monds, and blue sap­phires. “Mil­len­ni­als ap­pre­ci­ate the crafts­man­ship of a hand­made piece, par­tic­u­larly when they are part of the de­sign ex­pe­ri­ence. They crave jew­ellery that is linked to a story in the de­tails and is there­fore more per­sonal,” says Shelly. “The Vin­tage Op­u­lence col­lec­tion checks off all the boxes among mil­len­ni­als: rose gold, hand-en­graved de­tails, rose-cut di­a­monds, and a touch of vin­tage. In ad­di­tion to be­ing cus­tomis­able, this col­lec­tion changes mil­len­ni­als’ minds about what a di­a­mond en­gage­ment ring can be.”
