I wish them the absolute best, I really want them to blossom, to be fulfilled and to immerse themselves in the jewelry industry.    Without them, the shop wouldn’t be what it currently is.

Who would’ve thought the owner of a jewelry shop would be doing delivery service at your door for free?  To see the online store, click here Our work ethic revolves around human contact. Now that we are quarantined, we have to keep out distances and respect government recommendations. La Forge d’Or is keeping its chin up. We’ve been here for 38 years; myself, the girls and our clients make a bomb team. Together we will get through this like the queens we are. As we wait for this to be over, take care of yourselves.  -Tanya and her girls
