The Grandis Watch And Gold Shop
We do repairs and restorations to most watches and jewellery on the premises. Many minor repairs can be done while you wait! It is not uncommon for a client to pick out a diamond and a mounting. Then, while they wait the stone can be set, the ring sized and the insurance appraisal generated. One of our most popular services is our white gold refinishing. Many of today’s white gold alloys tend to take on a yellowish hue after being worn awhile. The Grandis shop can restore it to factory condition in a matter of minutes!
We are proud to be one of only 13 American Gem Society Certified Gem Laboratories in Canada and have a staff of certified diamond graders and graduate gemmologists on site. Our head gemmologist, Reginald Grandis is one of only 12 certified gemmologist appraisers in Canada. Our appraisals are recognized worldwide and can be done while you watch.
As an AGS lab we are required to maintain state of the art equipment, we are subject to inspections and are required to write a yearly recertification exam.
We also do diamond grading featuring Sarin Technology where the cut grade of a diamond can be determined by computer analysis using lasers to “read” the diamond. The cut grade of a diamond can make the price vary by as much as 30% and it is one of the “grey areas” of diamond grading that can be used by less scrupulous members of the business. Sarin technology removes all of the guess work.
Our estate department buys and sells used jewellery and estates. Do you have unworn or broken gold jewellery accumulating in your jewellery box? Have you inherited something you're not quite sure about? We can help! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
