Fall is in the air!

wave-pendant-gsAccording to the calendar, it’s still summer but if you open the door of our studio, test the air, see the leaves falling, you get the distinct impression that we are entering another season!

A perfect time to think about that perfect gift that you may need in the coming months (I’m thinking December 25).

Drop by, look at our displays, talk about ideas to create that special piece for that special someone in your life.

Hot off the bench!

This lovely ring was finished today, so sparkly it will surely spark joy for the person it is for!


The workshop is buzzing with commissions, redesigns & repairs. Trying to come up with ideas to celebrate Van Yperen’s 50th anniversary next year, any ideas??

Busy in the Studio!!

Sauer bracelet
Sauer 3We have all been so busy in the workshop that we have been neglecting this space a little! Apologies all around. Really need to share this bracelet that’s been absorbing a lot of our time, handmade 18k white & yellow gold, 3 dimensional tubes combined with South Sea Pearls. Handmade clasp completes the one of a kind detailing!

Springtime at Van Yperen Jewellers

Tea Time

Maybe it’s still little dreary as we approach the Easter weekend, but a view of our new window will have you thinking spring anyway!

Check out our little birds peeking out of the hanging teapots, there are other “gems” to see too.

Happy Easter from all of us at Van Yperen Jewellers!

Will you marry me?

Join the kids following our Christmas train, see what’s sparkling in the shop!

Happy Holidays to all!

There Go the Brides



For the past month a bevy of brides have been on display, their flowing skirts have rustled in the breeze and their ever changing jewellery has caught the attention of passerbys. Most popular has been the diamond pendant worn on the bride on the far right, a single floating diamond accented by a gold frame. Fit for any bride in your life!

Hurry to catch these runaway brides, display will be changing next week!

P.S. Can you spot the material in the dresses?


Hint: You may never have realized the potential of your morning coffee!

Here comes the Bride


Ms. Piggy and Kermit are a leading example of the “happy couple”. Ms Piggy, a recent winner of a Sackler Center First Award, is part of a display of Ms. Piggy themed celebrities on show this month at our store. These fascinating porcines were created by a local artist, Valeria Fellini. See if you can spot the celebrity, from bygone film stars to historical female icons. These intricate characters are amazing in their detail and ability to take on the subtleties of the person.

If you have a wedding on your horizon, a visit to Van Yperen can start you on the path to a one of a kind creation for the love of your life!

Step Back in Time!


A visit to our current window display feels like a trip to a museum.

There’s a vintage brass cash register that served for decades in a West 4th Avenue drygoods store and assorted woodworking tools from the same era.

A tour of our shop will reveal countless hand tools that are still in use, come see what’s in progress in the workshop.

Each jewellery creation is as unique as you are!
