Magdor Jewellery has been operating out of the same location for more than 20 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; resizing; 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 jewellry, Magdor Jewellery sells watches featuring brands: Raymond Weil; Seiko, and Swiss Army. Magdor also repairs all main brands of watches. High quality diamonds are available from Canada and other conflict-free areas around the world.
Verbal or written appraisals
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.”
Wonderful gifts for all occasions
Magdor sometimes has wonderful gifts for their 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 card and all major credit cards and can also sometimes accept lay-away plans.
