Awards of Excellence


We are pleased to present the 2016 Awards of Excellence celebrating the very best in Canadian jewellery design, retailing, product development and watch brand innovation.

For the 2016 Awards of Excellence (AOE), Canadian Jeweller has partnered with the very prestigious and high-profile event, the 6th Annual Great Jewellery Heist in support of Bridgepoint Active Healthcare, part of Sinai Health System, at which the winners will be announced.

This exclusive luncheon, held at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel on October 28th in Toronto, will host 450 of some of the most influential Canadian business-women in finance, fashion, marketing and retail.

In order to be able to offer this fantastic opportunity to you, our valued clients, we have had to make some changes to this year’s dates, deadlines and submission categories.

This year, our winners will be announced in front of The Great Jewellery Heist’s exclusive and captive audience, who will be gifted a special high-quality brochure featuring this year’s 16 finalist’s bio, design philosophy and contact information along with a picture of their submission.

In addition to this unique exposure, you have the opportunity to offer your AOE piece for auction at the event which will further enhance your brand awareness and raise money for this great cause. A tax receipt will be provided for donated pieces that are accompanied by a third party appraisal for fair market value, as per CRA guidelines.

You may also choose to donate additional pieces.
