Buying an engagement ring is probably one of the most important purchases you’ll ever make for the woman you love, and is often one of the priciest. It is a daunting task and there is a lot of choice.
Instead of going to the generic stores such as Tiffany & Co. (even though that’s what she might ask for), why not discover the beautiful selections at these fine jewelry boutiques in Toronto?
Serli and Siroan
This boutique in Yorkville, far outshines anything you’ll find at a generic chain jewelry store. The designs are exquisite, there is a wide selection from which to choose, and the rings are fit for a princess. Their expertise and craftsmanship attests to their 34 years of success in Toronto. They also offer custom ring designs and have more than 4,000 diamonds to choose from to create the perfect setting.

They have been around for 30 years, and there is definitely a reason for their endurance
