Vintage Rings Rings Rings!
“Rings are an intimate part of a woman’s life,” says Cynthia Findlay, owner of Cynthia Findlay Fine Jewellery
& Antiques, “shining treasures to admire every day.”
A dazzling feast of estate jewels, Findlay’s rings carry history — yet her customer is very fun and fresh.
“Today, whether she’s celebrating graduation, a great promotion, or a big life-event, ladies treat themselves!”
Cases glitter with trays piled with luscious jewels of every size, shape, colour and description —
as Findlay helps you discover or create your heart’s desire.
Embellished and feminine? Try the Victorian period. “Queen Victoria was young and girly, she loved the fire
of opals, deep green emeralds and sapphires of every hue,” Findlay says.
Geometric taste? Go for Art Deco. “Dramatic, and wonderful architectural-influenced clean lines,” she says.
“With Instagram, ladies learn global styles, and our sparkling online boutique makes it easy to catch what’s new in the shop.
“Never wait to buy anything one-of-a-kind, like this breathtaking watermelon tourmaline.
Layaway is popular, let’s see how we can help you,” she says, eyeing a find.
An elegant 18kt white gold mill grain ring featuring 8 square cut deep intense rubies, est. 0.70ct; 1 round brilliant cut diamond, est. 0.50ct.
That Markle Sparkle
For over 40 years, Findlay’s long and trusted relationship with Toronto’s movie and TV crowd, means countless trend-setting
celebrities and Film Festival ladies visit for one-of-a-kind jewels.
“The Royals set trends, as well. Princess Diana’s sapphire engagement ring, worn by Kate Middleton, made a big impact on
coloured stones,” says Findlay of the stunning 12-carat design.
Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, and her three-stone diamond ring now influences demand. It’s a design Findlay is happy to
create by refreshing a ring with all new gems or reusing a cherished heirloom.
“I love clients who want to be unique,” she says. Whether a ring inspired by a royal, a re-creation of jewels spotted on Pinterest,
or an enchanting new design for a romantic proposal, Findlay is up for anything.
“It's a delight to help create an exceptional piece,” she says. Here’s a sampling of some of Cynthia Findlay’s favourite finds;
A stunning vintage 18kt white gold ring featuring 1 oval faceted cut natural deep violetish blue sapphire, est. 10.70ct and
20 old European, round transitional and single cut diamonds, est. 1.25ct (clarity:I-I2 & G-L colour).
A stunning retro 18kt yellow and white gold ring, circa 1940, featuring 1 rectangular cushion cut natural yellow sapphire, est. 12.50ct.
A beautiful modern 14kt rosy peach gold ring featuring 1 pear faceted cut medium intense green sapphire, est, 2.13ct and
