For those of you who are not already devout fans… the Mollard Collection is a grouping of estate jewels that are co-curated by Mr. Mollard and myself. Mr Mollard has more than twenty years of experience as a fine jewelry broker, as well as wit, passion and a finely tuned eye. His delight in an exquisite new find is infectious, and he has
taught us so much in the appreciation of these rare pieces. I am fascinated not only by the beauty of each piece, but it’s story and history. Some of Mr. Mollard’s finds are new, and are waiting for their very first owner. Others have borne the test of time, and have been lovingly passed from one hand to another for nearly one hundred and fifty years.
The result is a varied grouping, with completely unique designs that simply cannot be found at conventional jewelry shops. How delightful to peek in the glass case and find a new treasure with every visit…. The workmanship of one hundred year ago, paired with the soft gleam of a mine cut diamond, has a power that factory made
pieces will never possess. Before the pieces of the Mollard Collection come to Tartooful each one is carefully examined and appraised by an independent, certified appraiser. Each piece that resells for more than CAD$1000 comes with its appraisal papers, so you can be assured of the authentic value of the piece.
Finally, Mr. Mollard prices his collection at a fraction of the appraised value, making each piece not only an object of desire, but also a liquid investment. We love to match the perfect ring to a young bride’s hand, find something special to celebrate an anniversary, or help an individual mark a personal victory with a tangible reward. Seeing the next chapter in the lives of these lovely jewels is the truly inspiring part of working with the collection!
If you are in the village, do drop in to see the new pieces in the collection… Mr Mollard has outdone himeself!
