"The story of Bijoux Birks began four centuries ago, when the Birks family were master silversmiths in Sheffield, England. Though the brand’s roots lie deep in English craftsmanship, it truly came to life when Henry Birks opened a boutique in the heart of Montreal in 1879. His lifelong dream became a reality and grew into a magnificent fine jewellery legacy that is still thriving today." - Maison Birks Website
