Old Meets New
The hidden messages of the Montreal Old Port, meet your new beginnings together. Imagine walking to the top of the square of Place Jacques-Cartier, surrounded by beautiful history as you take the next step into creating your own memorable story.

Say it in snow
Featuring a vintage-inspired rose-cut diamond at its centre, this Snowflake Engagement Ring is as exquisite as the snowflakes it was inspired from. Surrounded by six smaller diamonds to elevate the ring’s brilliance, the centre stone’s glassy and frosted look reminds us of the ephemeral beauty of the winter.
Champagne by the candlelight
