Make women shine in their daily lives with dazzling jewelry
La Forge d'or is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. It is therefore part of the regional history. Indeed, the team/management of this family jewelry store is pleased to announce that it is the oldest retail business with a storefront on Île Perrot. She is also proud to say that she has been actively involved in the community since her beginnings in 1982.
Who is behind La Forge d'or?
La Forge d'or is a Quebec company founded in 1982 by Serge Desforges, watchmaker by trade and enthusiast. Five years ago, his daughter, Tanya Desforges, took over the reins of the jewelry store. This young woman, who grew up inside the store, has a bold and feminine vision that inspires many. For several years, she has devoted most of her time to La Forge d'or and proudly carries the family torch. She also involves her daughter Mya in the activities of the jewelry store, and she too already has the sacred fire.
At the very heart of its mission, the jewelry store is unifying and close to people. It has evolved over the years and, today, La Forge d'or adds another string to its bow. Indeed, it presents a variety of sparkling collections created by local women and trendy jewelry for all tastes and for all types of budgets.
Why did you extend La Forge d'or in 2019?
“I wanted an elegant space that could offer more jewelry choices where each customer would feel happy to come and choose the perfect gift for the precious people in their life. I also wanted to expand the design-repair workshop, since we encourage our customers to take care of their jewelry and give a second life to all the ornaments that matter to them”.
- Tanya Desforges, owner, jeweler, manufacturing, repair and sales consultant and official successor of La Forge d'or.
An online store to meet customer needs
The jewels of La Forge d'or have remained accessible despite the pandemic, confinement and store closures. The survival of the jewelry store depended on the creativity and agility of its owner and his team. All the girls got to work to provide a boutique space worthy of their loyal customers and the entire population of Quebec.
Several scintillating collections created by Tanya and her daughters are available online. The marvelous Eva Collection represents the woman who reveals herself without artifice and who already has everything in her to be happy. The prestigious JustMy collection, also available online, symbolizes audacity, ambition and feminine distinction. In addition, a new collection has just been launched: the Talya collection, which represents the journey, the serenity and the dreamy side of today's women. These brilliant regional creations are regularly worn by local women, so that we never forget where we come from and where we are going. Because being a woman in today's world means fulfilling oneself, dreaming and creating with originality in complete freedom.
“All women can proudly wear jewelry signed La Forge d'or in order to anchor their daily life with confidence in an energy of power and love.”
- Julie Dessureault, Joyful Women's Body Coach

A word about the owner
Tanya Desforges fell into the pot when she was little. As a child, she spent much of her time in jewelry with her father, Serge Desforges, whom she greatly admired. She had stars in her eyes when she watched him serve customers, make and repair jewelry, always with the same passion tattooed on his heart. Without knowing it, the dream of owning one day had just been sown in his head.
Today, she has built a team of girls who shine and men who shine. They are practically part of his family.
“ The girls and jewelers on my team are extremely valuable to me. Often, as a business leader, we forget that we wouldn't be here without all these employees who contribute to the reputation of what we have built. My employees are pearls or rough diamonds. I chose them very carefully . It is essential for me that they feel happy and good in what they do every day at La Forge d'or. We are linked to others and we help each other with the slightest concern. That's how I see my daily life: surrounded by all these extraordinary women and men that I wanted to have in my life to build my dream. -Tanya _
It promotes creativity, refinement, a desire for commitment, the expertise of its staff and respect for its customers. These are values inseparable from his team and his company. Tanya is motivated by mutual aid and by surpassing oneself within the community. She always sees further and is in solidarity with other women entrepreneurs in the region. This is why she is part of the CCIVS, which means that she always sees bigger than herself, thanks to this great generosity that characterizes her. Tanya considers the business people in her region as her second family.
