Profile Last Updated: October 14, 2008
Five generations of British jewellers have contributed to Birks' outstanding reputation. In 1879, after a 22-year career at a major Montreal jeweller and clockmaker, 39 year-old Henry Birks opened his first store. His studio was created in 1887, in the same building that today houses Birks' head office in Montreal's Phillips Square.
Diamonds and Watches
In addition to the diamonds that have made Birks so famous, shoppers will find prestigious brands such as Tag Heuer, Cartier, Gucci and Mont-Blanc, as well as house labels. Birks' designers have always been leaders in their field and have, in fact, won more than 20 prestigious national and international prizes. If diamonds are forever, those sold at Birks are an undisputed part of Canada's heritage!
Giftware for Special Occasions
Whether it's your niece's christening or you're buying flatware for a friend's wedding, Birks has the perfect gift in store. There is baby jewelry, plate sets, picture frames, handbags, wallets, as well as crystal glasswear available. There are also crystal flower vases and candle holders too. For those looking for vintage jewelry, Birks generally has a few rare items in each store.
