Cynthia's store is one of best places to find unique and beautiful jewelry in Toronto. There are so many one of a kind pieces. My husband found me a beautiful antique engagement ring at Cynthia's - he also found me a stunning sapphire anniversary ring - both of which I adore. The staff are friendly and helpful - they do...

Checked this place out largely because of the positive Tripadvisor reviews, and it is fun to walk around in a gawk, but everything, and I do mean everything, in it is very overpriced. If you're looking for that elusive piece to complete Gramma's china set, you can likely find it here, but you will pay much more than it is... More

This shop has an impressive array of antiques as well as estate/ antiques/ resale jewelry. And the staff is very friendly. I've been there a few times, once looking for a sterling silver thing for a birthday present, and at other times looking for jewelry for myself. Unfortunately, the prices are outrageous. For the silver thing that I was checking,... More

Everyday we try hard to provide a pleasant environment for our customers and glad that came across. A comparison to eBay and the wholesale diamond district of New York ‎to our 6000 Sq feet of beautiful treasures individually selected for quality and condition available on site seems uneven. Fortunately we have reviews on TripAdvisor from customers who prefer their experience... More

Bought a classic engagement ring here, the staff was great and indulged my fiance in trying on every ring she wanted. They were super friendly and ended up giving us a bottle of champagne to celebrate. Really great experience.

Went in for an engagement ring and found just what I was looking for quickly with their help. Great service overall and I'm happy with what I paid. Save yourself some time and just start here.

If you're looking for something unique in a ring and something that will not break your wallet,this place is for you. Cynthia and her staff were very friendly and helpful and they have a variety of antiques to choose from. We loved the place so much, we are planning to get our wedding bands there!

Cynthia and her staff were lovely, friendly, attentive, and helpful. There was no pressure to buy and loads of time to explore the store and look at all the options. Their selection is amazing and I found a great engagement ring. I would absolutely recommend this shop, what a gem!

We went to pick out an engagement ring and were treated better than family. I was allowed to try on anything I wanted and was encouraged to look at everything to find the best fit. We found the perfect ring, with ease. The staff was so happy, sweet, kind, and friendly. We left knowing that we made the right choice... More

When you walk into Cynthia Findlay Antiques, you don't know where to look. Everywhere, items are stacked on each other, hung on the walls and tucked under furniture. It is a feast for the senses and hard to believe that one person could gather so many treasures! If, like myself, you are lucky, you will hear one of Cynthia's many... More

Have never been to an antique store like this one. Fabulous silver. Astonishing jewelry. Remarkable Victorian teapots. Even vintage leather suitcases ('Casablanca', anyone?). Something delightful in every corner....and deep, high quality inventory in all of my interest areas. Knowledgeable employees were there to help, not to push. Tuesday's visit was a great pleasure. At the risk of repeating myself, I've... More
