At Artina’s, we pride ourselves in the small details which create life’s special moments, providing quality gift wrapping and specializing in keeping surprises! Visit us and our four legged family members at both our Victoria and Vancouver locations.
Artina’s Jewellery has been a fixture in the downtown Government Street Victoria location since it was opened in 1989 by John and Susan Black. It was their beautiful shop and unique all Canadian concept which attracted many local customers and visiting tourists. When the Blacks decided to retire they sold the business to one of those loyal local customers, Lori DeVuyst and her family, in 1999.
Since then, we have taken pride in continuing with the store’s original concept as we work to grow and develop the business. As part of that growth we opened a second location in Gastown, Vancouver in August of 2009.
Our family owned and operated business remains successful today due to an amazing team of hard working and exceptional staff, our talented Canadian artists and our loyal local and visiting customers who have supported our concept for over 20 years.
We appreciate your support and we look forward to providing quality hand crafted Canadian jewellery for many years to come. When visiting either location be sure to say hello to our VIP shop dogs… Carmel in Victoria and Herman in Vancouver!
