Working with my clients to make their dreams come true for a beautiful and unique piece of jewellery is so rewarding. Creating something special that people wear their entire lives to celebrate their most precious emotions is the best part of what I do. When my clients ask me to design a ring for them, I look at it as an opportunity to create something amazing. We begin the process by looking at an existing ring from our showcase or getting a sense from the customer about who they are and what their special piece of jewellery is meant to represent. By sketching different ideas, we come up with a design that truly represents my client.
My customers and I have developed a trust that makes the creative process fun and rewarding. If you're getting engaged or celebrating an anniversary or milestone, let us help make your ring come true, like we've done countless times over the last 25 years.

My Shelly Purdy rings are my most prized jewellery. Shelly’s attention to detail in the design of my recent eternity band really came through beautifully. I recently went through a health crisis and looking at my gorgeous rings brought me comfort; they were a reminder of constant love and support of my husband. Thank you so much for your exquisite work, Shelly.

Shelly does exceptional work; every piece reflects her commitment to her craft. At the same time, I feel she has her clients’ interests in mind. Shelly made my engagement ring, and earrings and necklace set, as well as cufflinks and a custom ring that turned out exquisitely. I can easily and highly recommend Shelly Purdy Studio and her staff.

Shelly provides one-of-a-kind service and is interested in the motivation behind the purchase to understand the significance. I’ve worked with Shelly to design custom pieces and she is amazing. She listens to what I want, understands what I need, and then makes amazing and enduring pieces of art I am privileged to own. I’ve been buying jewellery from Shelly and only Shelly since I met her 20 years ago. Why would I buy anyone else’s work when she’s the best? I recommend Shelly to everyone I know! She’s amazing.

My first beautiful ring was my engagement ring, which Shelly designed. I wanted a unique design and non-traditional stone. Shelly worked her magic and the whole experience still brings smiles almost 25 years later. Anniversaries and achievements are now recognized with a Shelly Purdy ‘spectacular’ creation. Thank you, Shelly and team, for your ever-evolving creativity!

Thank you to the extremely talented, Shelly Purdy, for creating such an amazing ring. I’m so glad I waited to have a Canadian custom piece of jewellery that will always be loved and appreciated. Getting this ring was surreal at first—it took a few weeks to believe it was mine. I am really glad I waited and got something so customized. I appreciate it even more. The whole experience was so smooth from start to finish. If you want a unique piece of jewellery of any shape or size, look no farther than Shelly Purdy Studio. I can’t say enough great things about this internationally renowned Canadian artist!

The Blushing Hearts ring arrived this morning and it is so much more precious than I would have expected. It is whimsical, pretty, and will be a treasure for a lifetime—I just described my granddaughter... Thank you so much for making my Christmas gift-giving such a pleasure.

Shelly takes the time required to understand her clients, their asks, and their ideas. Her professionalism and creativity combine to provide her customers with an unmatched experience you can’t get from walking into a store. What I like about the jewellery I purchased is that it combines the best of Shelly’s artistic talents, yet I could add my personal touch to make it unique. The design process itself was an amazing exchange of ideas and honesty, helping to move an idea into conception that is appreciated by those that receive the piece. I recommend and have recommended Shelly to others. She combines the best of personalizing unique gifts, representing values of ethics of where she buys her products and through whom, as well as capturing jewellery in an art that makes it easy for anyone to decide what they like/don’t like and how they can make it their own.

The first time I met Shelly was at the One of a Kind Christmas show when I bought a simple, but elegant silver bangle. I signed her guest book and soon after was invited to her open house at her new studio on Richmond Street. My husband and I were so impressed with Shelly’s jewellery that we purchased some that night! From that night on, a special friendship developed and we had Shelly design our wedding rings. Shelly took the time to work with us, listen to what we were looking for, and come up with something that was unique and special to us. I regularly get compliments on my Shelly Purdy jewellery. The most memorable was from a jeweller on a cruise ship who wanted the name of my designer! I have yet to meet a jewellery designer whose work is on the same level as Shelly’s. I find it ironic that I met a ‘One-of-a-Kind’ at the One of a Kind.

The Falling Leaves ring is simply gorgeous. The way the gold leaves are scattered between the diamonds gives me great pleasure. I have received many compliments on this ring. The Colour Palette Organic Sapphire ring is what I would call whimsical. It makes me smile when I see the colourful sapphires sparkle in the light. I will definitely be back to purchase another piece of jewellery from Shelly Purdy Studio.
Rosemary, Pelham, Ont.
I just purchased your Falling Leaves ring and wanted to thank you for designing such a beautiful Canadian ring. I have received many compliments and have been told it is stunning. I am sure they are referring to the sparkly diamonds. However, I bought it for the maple leaves. Truth be told, when I saw the sample ring, the shine hurt my eyes so much that I almost didn't buy it. However, I couldn't find another ring that symbolized Canada for me as much as this one… It is my everyday ring and I love it. Thank you so much for designing this piece of Canadiana.
