Our story

Gabriela and Costin Lazar re-launched Silverbridge over 25 years ago. As a team with a background in architecture and art, we immersed ourselves with gusto into the most exciting endeavor of designing, making and retailing a dream product: art jewellery. We have always relied on our ability to offer a high quality, sophisticated and modern jewellery collection, a design that sets us apart, all supported by a friendly and comprehensive customer service.

 

Trained in Europe as a sculptor and goldsmith, Costin Lazar, who works out of his studio in downtown Toronto, established himself as an independent designer in 1979. A few years later, Gabriela, who trained as an architect in Germany became the manager of Silverbridge. The collaboration between the sculptor and the architect leads to the dynamic, innovative and timeless jewellery collection we present online and by appointment, in our studio.

 

The collection consists of ready made pieces in sterling silver and eighteen karat gold, and custom design fine jewellery in all precious metals including platinum.

All pieces are solid, very well finished with high tactile characteristics and hand made. The inspiration is nature itself, a recurring motif being the ever present search for balance between opposing elements, such as a sharp line in harmony with a full and sensual shape. The results are original, well made pieces, instantly recognizable, displaying a deceptive simplicity.

They reflect and communicate the spirit of our times.

 

Earrings - most of our earrings are available for pierced ears and clip-ons as well.

Bracelets - are hand made of solid metal in various sizes from small to large.

Necklaces - many of our necklaces are available or can be ordered in different lengths.

Gemstones - all precious and semi-precious gemstones for rings and bead necklaces are natural stones.

Diamonds - the Canadian or Belgian diamonds we set in our tension diamond ring designs are of superior clarity, colour and cut.

Clasps/closures - we are known for our interesting and well made clasps for necklaces and bracelets. Some are concealed, some hinged and fully integrated, some are magnetic and some close like a puzzle.

Finishes - all pieces in our collection are available in a highly polished or satin matte finish, some are also hammered.
