The story of 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. Inspired by a land with astounding natural beauty and unique joie de vivre, Birks became a treasured part of Canadian heritage. With incomparable quality and fine craftsmanship, Birks acquired a lasting place in the hearts of Canadians and is now an iconic Canadian brand that is cherished and distributed internationally. As Canada’s leading designer of fine jewellery, timepieces and gifts, their iconic blue box has proudly been part of Canadians’ lives since 1879. Passed down from generation to generation, Birks continues to share in Canadians’ heartfelt moments and treasured stories. We have had the pleasure of partnering with Birks for several years, showcasing the brand’s collections throughout our showrooms in both the UK and US.
