At home in our East Vancouver jewellery design studio
Whether you are ordering a custom designed conflict-free diamond engagement ring, wedding band or something from our in-store display, each piece is designed by our trained jewellery designer and handmade by our in-house goldsmiths in Vancouver, Canada.
At the heart of our business is our studio. It is comprised of local craftspeople whose passion is creating unique engagement rings, wedding bands and other jewellery. By working with Era Design Vancouver, you are contributing economically to our community and helping to enrich and preserve local artisanal knowledge and skills. We work in small batches and hand finish pieces as demand requires. As a result, we occasionally sell out of items, but rest assured we always catch up and have them available as soon as possible.
Era Design offers a new direction in ethical engagement rings, wedding rings, and other jewellery items, focusing on fresh and original designs that are updated seasonally. Located off Commercial Drive in Vancouver, our jewellery store offers contemporary custom designed engagement and wedding rings, pendants and earrings alongside a carefully curated collection of vintage and antique jewellery from times past.
Custom designed jewellery is at the heart of what we do. Era Design collaborates with you to create original diamond and coloured gemstone engagement rings, wedding bands, earrings, pendants and more with only the highest quality materials.
VCC alumni and local Vancouver jewellery designer, Rosemary Bartram, established Era Design in 2003 with the goal of providing excellence in custom ring design, quality, service, and buyer education.
Excellence in service is our absolute priority. It colours everything we do. At Era Design, we understand that the purchase of an engagement ring and other jewellery often marks special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries and birthdays. We understand that a precious piece of jewellery is worn and treasured for many years, that it grows with its owner and becomes entwined with many wonderful memories. That’s why we go out of our way to make your experience of jewellery shopping rewarding in every way possible. We are there to share our designs and answer questions, but never to make you feel rushed or pressured. In fact, most custom design projects involve several staged appointments prior to completion.
Highest quality. The finest possible materials go into every engagement ring, wedding band, earring or pendant at Era Design. We specialize in selling loose diamonds and gemstones so that our customers can see precisely what they are purchasing. We select diamonds that come with reputable certificates and specialize in conflict-free Canadian Diamonds. Your ring or other pieces of jewellery are handmade to your specifications, in your choice of white, yellow or rose gold, sterling silver or platinum.
We believe the chosen design should reflect the lifestyle of its owner. You can expect to choose from a selection of simple, modern, vintage style and classic engagement rings and wedding bands. Era Design also offers some unusual pieces set with rare gemstones and a tasteful collection of vintage jewellery. What sets Era Design apart from its competition is an in-house designer, who can listen to ideas, sketch and design exactly what you want.
We take pride in each stage of crafting your jewellery. Our in-house goldsmiths are passionate professionals, teachers and all-around advocates for making things! At Era Design, we take every opportunity to advance the quality of our work through embracing time-honoured techniques and emerging technologies.
A custom ring design is only as good as the team that breathes life into it. The unique Era Design team sets us apart from other jewellery stores and custom jewellers.
Since opening in 2003, Era Design developed an unrivalled process for making sure your custom designed conflict free diamond engagement rings, wedding bands or jewellery are the very best.

Our trained in-house designer has over 15 years of experience designing fine jewellery for clients in Vancouver and abroad.
