Jewels by Alan Anderson is Canada’s definitive couture, fashion jewellery company, headquartered in Toronto, Ontario.
Founder and designer, Alan Anderson, designs each piece individually, creating from the image in his head and never actually sketching.
Alan calls his work “vintage infused” because although he uses vintage crystals, stones and findings sourced in Canada and the US, each piece of jewelry is a new creation.
He brought back statement pieces from the turn-of-the-century through the 1940’s – sautoirs, fur clips, tiaras and hinged clampers – which are now signature pieces. In 2005, Alan created the “cab hailer” cuff bracelet – it too has become a signature staple within the collection.
Alan’s work is sold in luxury boutiques throughout North America, and he receives commissions from around the world.
