visited with a friend who was shopping for a special gift. we found the staff to be friendly, helpful and honest in their dealings. great selection of unique luxury jewellery
Alec and Barbara were great from the moment I walked in. I was going to buy a new Air King but I had done my due diligence and I knew the Submariner was the watch. I decided against the cyclops and I ... read more »
This is my favourite Jewellery store. There are diamonds, watches and gems galore. I have been shopping at Van Rijk for over 10 years and I have always been treated fairly and with the utmost respect.... read more »
I have transact many high end watch deals on time zone; eBay and in the local area without an issue. After gotten bored of my latest Rolex Datejust I could have gone the same route but decided that I wanted to get rid of my watch the fastest way possible. The best way then was to find a store that will pay me on the spot. After researching I made an appointment for the same day with Van Rijk. From the moment I got there I was treated in a professional manner by the ladies and Alec himself. We settled on a price after some negotiation based on the current state of the bezel. I was fine with th price offered and made the deal to sell my watch. By the way, the price is really competitive to what I would have gotten doing a local private sale with the added benefit of getting a check on the spot. I even browsed their collection of Rolex for sale and the staff was patient; courteous and very knowledgeable. The whole experience was positive in every way and I will definitely consider them if I ever need to sell or purchase a watch or jewelry.
Searching for the perfect engagement ring is a tough one. So many opinions coming at you at once... Go see Barbara and Allen at Van Rijk. They will straighten things out for you.. After a full year of searching they were the only shop that stood out to me. And trust me.. I searched high and low all across the GTA! Great service with no pressure and they seriously have ALL of the options in one place.. Friendly family owned vibe and service with lots of great story's to share. I felt very comfortable and relaxed, I also laughed and enjoyed engagement ring shopping for the first time. It became clear right away that there are so many amateurs out there.. and when it comes to engagement rings.. You need the Pro's! Van Rijk all the way!
We've recently spent tens of thousands of dollars at Van Rijk on Rolexs, diamond rings, custom jewellery and earrings and even have traded in our old and unused gold. Alec's knowledge and totally relaxed demeanour is awesome; Barbara is so pleasant, cheerful and welcoming; Pina's vision for jewellery design is an invaluable asset; and Kim is friendly and was so helpful in entertaining our two young daughters. This place is addictive, we'll be back soon :)
Went there to sell a few inherited pieces of jewellery. Met with Alec who wasted no time in evaluating the pieces. He honestly informed us that the value of the pieces lay in their scrap gold value. Not exactly what we wanted to hear, but Alec helped us come to terms with it by removing the gemstones from one of the pieces (free of charge). We left satisfied and impressed with the level of service and the transaction.
I went to Van Rijk to sell a diamond ring after going elsewhere first and feeling less than thrilled with the service there. I am so happy for the referral to Alec Van Rijk because he was very informative, fair and understanding....such a nice man! You can buy or sell jewellery anywhere but it is the people and service that separates the reputable from the others. With that said, they do have a beautiful selection as well. It was worth the drive for me and I will refer family and friends to go there.
