Marquis Jewellers, in the heart of Yorkville, celebrating 40 years of designing beautiful custom and ready to wear jewellery. Socrates Reppas, Master Goldsmith, award-winning designer and owner of Marquis Jewellers has had the privilege of working with three generations of clientele, designing and creating unique jewellery to honour life’s special moments.
A lifelong passion for beautiful jewellery was sparked at age 12, when Socrates entered the workshop of one of Greece’s finest goldsmiths while on a delivery errand. He was immediately captivated by the natural beauty of the precious metals and gemstones and the craftsmanship of the goldsmiths. He returned the following day and began an apprenticeship with the master goldsmith that would last for 6 years.
Early in his career, Socrates envisioned creating a jewellery store to showcase his many design creations. Marquis Jewellers is the realization of that vision. Clientele from across Canada, throughout the United States, Europe and Asia, have all discovered that Socrates combines his vast expertise, strong aesthetic and artistry to create jewellery that marks the emotion of their special celebration.
