1.HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT LA FORGE D’OR? I came across the La Forge d’or jeweller’s shop through meeting Tanya Desforges  2.WHICH OF OUR SERVICES DID WE PROVIDE TO MEET YOUR NEEDS?  I needed something repaired and remodeled.    3.WHY WAS THIS PROJECT IMPORTANT TO YOU? This project meant a lot to me because it allowed me to surprise the love of my life. When we met, I had offered him a gemstone that he had been dying to purchase back then: an amber with insect inclusions inspired by one of his favourite movies (Jurassic Park). Over the years, the amber eventually broke off its chain. Tanya had mentioned that she could fix jewelry and make them more resistant. She also provided some useful advice to make the necklace more resistant. I just want to give a huge thank you for the AMAZING service I got.   4.WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND LA FORGE D’OR TO EVERYONE? I recommend La Forge d’or because I completely trust their expertise. They are incredible, they have so many useful tips on preserving jewelry to offer and their shop is absolutely stunning. When I walk in, I feel at ease. However, this place is worth the detour just for the variety in the jewelry, the smiles, the cheerful vibe and the friendly staff. From now on, they are the only ones I go to if I need expert advice.

1.HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT LA FORGE D’OR? I grew up in Pincourt and I’ve known about this jeweller’s shop since forever. I’ve witnessed all the transformations this shop has gone through. I knew Tanya Desforges in highschool. Although, we didn’t have classes together, I had heard she had quite the reputation.   2. WHICH OF OUR SERVICES DID WE PROVIDE TO MEET YOUR NEEDS?Creative Work  3.WHY WAS THIS PROJECT IMPORTANT TO YOU?  Last year, Tanya created a custom ring for me using the stones that were on my maternal grandmother’s two rings. She created three bracelets (for me, my sister and my daughter) using my mother’s necklace. My mother passed away in April 2017. When we sorted through her jewelry, I went home with a small part of it. Since my grandmother’s rings looked like they were straight out of the sixties, there was no way I was going to wear them, but I also didn’t want to throw them away. Tanya then suggested she create a ring for me which I now wear every week.   When it came down to creating the bracelets at La Force d’or, keep in mind that it was crucial to me that I share the beautiful necklace my dad had gifted my mother with my daughter so that she could have a small reminder of her grandmother. It is an honour to wear this bracelet.   4. WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND LA FORGE D’OR TO EVERYONE? The owner is awesome and so is her staff. They’re always all ears. Plus, the variety of choices can’t be beat. I don’t see how anyone could be disappointed after walking out of there. This local company is simply fantastic!

1. HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT LA FORGE D’OR? I have known about La Forge d’or for years now since this is where multiple family jewelry pieces were created for my grandmother and even my great-grandmother (family heritage I now proudly wear).  2.WHICH OF OUR SERVICES DID WE PROVIDE TO MEET YOUR NEEDS? I have gone there for their repair services on several occasions and, most recently, to get a ring remodeled by them.   3. WHY WAS THIS PROJECT IMPORTANT TO YOU? This project was dear to my heart because I used the band of the ring my husband gave me when we got engaged in Greece! We had removed the diamond years later to place it on a different ring which left me with just the band. I wanted to add a beautiful pear-shaped morganite to it alongside some diamonds. La Forge d’or somehow salvaged diamonds that were on an old ring my parents had given me and the result is mind-blowing. I will be able to give it to my daughter when she’s older. 4. WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND LA FORGE D’OR TO EVERYONE? I recommend La Forge d’or to all my clients and friends who are looking to buy a wedding ring or a gift. The quality and especially the personalized and warm service is this company’s biggest asset!
