Maureen Grandis is the creative side of Grandis Jewellers. With a background in classical ballet and live theatre, she loves to use jewellery as one of her many creative outlets. She holds a Bachelor’s degree from Brock University, is a Graduate Jeweller from the Canadian Jewellers Institute, and is a Graduate Gemmologist from the Gemological Institute of America. She has over 30 years experience in the jewellery business. Other fun facts about Maureen is that she is one of the few certified (and female) clockmakers in all of Canada and she’s a very accomplished flutist to boot!

As the creative director of Grandis Jewellers, she is responsible for the unique look and sensuous feel of the Grandis jewellery collection. She travels extensively each year researching new trends and looking for inspiration for her designs. She particularly enjoys her numerous diamond buying trips to the cutting centres with her husband Reg where her keen eye for detail has proven invaluable!

Maureen is an expert in all elements of design, a meticulous perfectionist and often sees elements that most people miss. She loves what she does and it shows!
