Penny's Jewellery boasts in-house manufacturing. We will take your ideas and turn them into reality. We can help you make decisions about metals, gems, styles, and applications. We are quickly and easily able to:
For new designs, rings and other jewellery are modelled first in wax and tweaked as per your vision, fit and fancy. Once approved, your piece is moulded directly from the wax carving into metal, which is further refined, polished and mounted with gem or gems as desired. The finished product is your unique item to be worn and cherished.
Having your own custom jewellery made is a rewarding experience. Not only is the process engaging, but the end result is truly exciting. After all, it's all about creating lasting memories, and nothing does that better than a unique, custom-designed ring or special item for yourself or someone very special.
Penny's Jewellery specializes in handling estate collections and individual pieces. Whether you simply require an appraisal, are looking to sell or consign individual items, batches or entire collections, Penny can help you get the most value from your items. When private sales typically bring the lowest returns, Penny will work with you to maximize your return - to find a way that is best for you. Potential avenues could involve auctions, consignment sales, donation, private sale or online sale through proper brokers. Either way, Penny is focused on you and will advise you on your best options and help you as needed or desired. You are in good hands with Penny.
Penny's Jewellery carries a large selection of fine jewellery for special occasions. We carry:
Whenever possible, we source Canadian gems. We are proud to support our national as well as local economies.
We repair jewellery in-house, using traditional methods as well as with laser welding. Laser welding/soldering is unique to Penny's Jewellery in Brockville. We are the only Jeweller locally that provides this service in-house.
Laser soldering/welding is more precise than traditional soldering methods. It focuses heat only where it's needed, reducing the risk of damage to more delicate stones like Opal, Emerald and Amethyst and others. At Penny's Jewellery, you can trust us with your precious items, and we won’t send them out for repair.
We also repair broken eyeglass metal frames by laser weld. Eyeglass frames are difficult and often deemed unrepairable, but this is often not the case given our capability. Bring us your damaged frames, and we'll fix them if possible.
