LOVELY RING! BEAUTIFULLY CRAFTED! I love how the band has a heavy, handmade feel...and the garnet is simple and beautifully set. It's super comfortable to wear too. Perfect for everyday. I have purchased several rings (and earrings too) from Boreal Workshop and they all have a gorgeous artisan touch. Always friendly customer service and fast shipping too. I would highly recommend this amazing shop! THANKS!

I purchased this lovely ring as a gift for my father... he loves it & plans on wearing it every day! The ring is a beautifully handcrafted heirloom piece....it's nice and heavy & has an artisan feel. Customer service was outstanding...Tanis & Carl went above & beyond to rectify a sizing issue so my dad has a perfect fit. I have purchased several pieces from this shop & would not hesitate to buy any of their beautiful work! Thanks so much!

About

we make beautiful things for all people

Boreal Workshop is a Manitoba family business. We hand make beautiful jewellery and functional art objects. The owner is a member of Ochekwi-Sipi Cree Nation (Fisher River), with Cree & Metis ancestors from the Interlake and Grand Beach regions of Manitoba.

The head jeweller and lapidary/gemologist is Canadian, of English and French ancestry, with roots in Winnipeg, and the Manigatogan/Long Lake area of Manitoba. An accomplished metal smith and lapidary, he was first introduced to lapidary at a young age by parents and grandparents, and has studied gemology with the GIA (Gemological Institute of America).

Our work is hand made in Canada. We cut and facet our own gemstones using select rough sourced from around the world. The metalwork we produce is handmade, typically in copper, silver, and gold. Where possible we use local sources and distributors, and consider sustainability and the environment.

We take pride in the fact that our pieces are created in a broad range of sizes and styles to suit our clients needs and preferences. As our pieces are created in our workshop, from start to finish, we stand behind the quality of our work and gladly replace or repair any defects resulting from workmanship. Our work is inspired by a variety of sources, and design considerations include meaning and/or references, visual beauty, weight, comfort and function.

Care instructions

We recommend a product called Blitz for cleaning copper, silver, and other precious metals.

Our copper is untreated and will naturally patina with time if it is not cleaned, we can apply renaissance wax prior to shipment upon request.

We carry and recommend specific polishing cloths and products, contact us for details.
