About Us

Our Staff

Picture of John C. (Chuck) Sandford John C. Sandford, or Chuck, as most of us call him, has been in the jewellery business for over twenty years. He studied to be a goldsmith at George Brown College in Toronto and received his Graduate Gemology certificate from the Gemological Institute of America (G.I.A.). After that, he became a Certified Appraiser with the Canadian Jewellers Association (C.J.A.). Currently he is the only Certified Appraisal Professional between Winnipeg and the Toronto area.

Chuck is joined in the business by his wife, Christine Sandford. Whereas Chuck's expertise is in working with jewellery, Christine is all about keeping things organized and running smoothly. She takes care of ordering, receiving, schedules and bookkeeping.

Yvonne Homer brings with her many years of experience in sales. She is now pursuing her goal of becoming a graduate gemologist and certified appraisal professional. Eventually we expect that she will take over at least part of the appraisal portion of our business.

Jane Komoski has joined our team as a goldsmith. She has many years of experience with jewellery, repair and custom design. She looks forward to the opportunity to adapt her expertise to the new laser welder.
