Atlantica Jewellery is a family owned business that was started the in August 1989. I was a jewellery distributor / wholesale on the road servicing retailer in communities between Montreal - Ottawa and Toronto.
In the year 2000 I started my first retail store on Merivale road in Ottawa and since then I moved my location 2 or 3 times until I settled at 1218 Bank Street since July 2015.
In 2007 I attended a diamond certification course in Antwerp / Belgium.
Later on I attended a Jewellery design course.
My experience dealing with manufacturers allowed me considerable insight on how jewellery is made which helped me excel in the repair, restoration and design aspect of it.
Here at Atlantica we sell Jewellery (Gold - Silver - Platinum - Costume and pearl), we design jewellery with diamonds and gems of all kind, we repair , evaluate and remount old gems into new designs, this is all done through a 3D computer program in which we design jewellery , produce images to show the customer before jewellery is produced to allow any changes the customer may desire, finally after approval by the customer, prototypes are printed with a 3D printer then cast in metal.
Custom designing would allow the customer to control cost by selecting gems or diamonds in desired sizes and quality, as a small family owned business we reduce the overhead considerably , that results in great savings and affordability for the consumer.
My biggest challenge is Marketing and Advertising power..
