Mag­dor Jew­ellery and Di­a­mond Shop – Friendly Ser­vice in Beau­re­paire Vil­lage

Montreal Times - - News -

Mag­dor Jew­ellery has been op­er­at­ing out of the same lo­ca­tion for more than 22 years in Bea­cons­field’s Beau­re­paire Vil­lage. The owner, Mr. Mansur, has been a jew­eler for over 40 years; he at­tributes his store’s longevity to re­li­able, friendly ser­vice.The fam­ily-owned busi­ness of­fers cus­tom-made man­u­fac­tur­ing; re­mount­ing; en­grav­ing; re-siz­ing; watch re­pairs; and ap­praisals.

“We do man­u­fac­tur­ing here on site,” he ex­plains. “We de­sign jew­elry for cus­tomers or take their de­signs. Else­where, many stores deal with whole­salers; but we elim­i­nate the mid­dle­man.We do all the ser­vices here, work­ing in gold, plat­inum, and sil­ver.We also have a very nice di­a­mond col­lec­tion and work with all other fine stones.”

En­gage­ment and an­niver­sary rings are a big part of his busi­ness. Ear­rings, bracelets, and pen­dants are also of­fered. Mag­dor al­ways gives its price in ad­vance so that there are no sur­prises when cus­tomers come to pick up the fin­ished prod­uct.Wait­ing time de­pends on the sea­son, but gen­er­ally in­volves a min­i­mum of two weeks. Rush or­ders of only a few days are also some­times pos­si­ble.

Apart from jew­elry, Mag­dor sells watches fea­tur­ing brands: Ray­mond Weil; Seiko, and Swiss Army. Mag­dor also re­pairs all main brands of watches. Cur­rently, Ray­mond Weil are marked down 50 per­cent. High qual­ity di­a­monds are avail­able from Canada and other con­flict-free ar­eas around the world.

Mag­dor of­fers ver­bal or writ­ten ap­praisals. He can is­sue cer­tifi­cates for in­sur­ance pur­poses or for per­sonal in­for­ma­tion. He helps his cus­tomers to up­grade or pur­chase pieces of gold. “One lady came in with what she thought was an al­most worth­less ring but I told her that the stone was an emer­ald eval­u­ated at $20,000. She was happy to have the ap­praisal done to say the least!”

“My cus­tomers here are from all over” Mansur says, “One of them even comes in from Van­cou­ver as he still be­lieves in me mak­ing his jew­elry. I re­cently had a cus­tomer ask­ing me to make him an en­gage­ment ring and I re­mem­bered mak­ing a ring for his father! Find­ing a good jew­eler is like find­ing a good car me­chanic; once you find a good and trust­wor­thy one, you want to keep him.”

Mag­dor some­times has won­der­ful gifts for its clients. Cur­rently, clients who pur­chase any jew­elry for $500 or more will be el­i­gi­ble to en­ter their names for the St. Valen­tine’s Day draw.The prize is a gor­geous 14 carat pair of ear­rings worth $400 or equiv­a­lent mer­chan­dise.

Mag­dor ac­cepts debit cards, all ma­jor credit cards, and also some­times lay-away plans.As a spe­cial pro­mo­tion, Mag­dor is cur­rently of­fer­ing 30 per­cent off select mer­chan­dise. Store hours are Tues­dayFri­day from 10am-6pm and Sat­ur­day from 10:30am-5pm. Free mu­nic­i­pal park­ing is of­fered nearby.The STM 200, 211 and 405 buses stop just a few steps away.
