“The best antique silver and more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Cynthia has an amazing eye for beautiful silver, tableware and jewelry. She is incredibly knowledgable about all kinds of antiques and is an expert in the (almost) lost art of table setting and has collected many rare and one-of-a-kind items. We have much loved (and often used) lovely sterling serving pieces and even some rare black basalt items that we bought there over many years. It's a great place for wedding and housewarming gifts too.

“Spoilt for Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

My fiancé found this lovely store while browsing online for antique engagement rings. I was a bit skeptical as to whether the massive online catalogue of rings would be present at the store and available to try on. In fact, there seemed to be even more choice in store than online. Thankfully, the staff were very helpful and attentive, and my fiancé was looking for a particular Edwardian style, so was quickly able to narrow her choices down to three or four gorgeous rings. The ring she chose was resized and ready for pick within a week. With the purchase of the ring we received a box, jewellery cleaner, an appraisal, and a small bottle of champagne (a very nice touch). Overall we were extremely pleased with the experience and would recommend giving this place a look if you are interested in antique jewellery and antiques of all varieties.

“Huge collection, attentive service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We visited Cynthia Findlay's store to purchase an engagement ring. The selection was excellent and we received very patient, personal care. Robyn didn't try to persuade us to buy a more expensive ring and seemed just as happy with our selection as we were. The shop also has beautiful jewelry for other occasions, too. Hopefully I'll be on the receiving end again for an anniversary!
