Our company’s mission is to do everything the ‘bench jewellery’ way – working on jewellery using traditional techniques, creating local products and offering in-house service, all while being ingrained with our local communities.
At our shops, we’re proud of the fact that our work is done by hand by our bench jewellers at their work benches. Unlike big-box jewellery retailers, our entire business is based on handmade designs and on-site jewellery repairs done by skilled craftspeople.
Our goldsmiths have been creating jewellery for decades. With very little retail inventory, our main focus is on custom designs and completing commissioned projects for our clients. Since we’re creating jewellery from scratch, we can tailor each piece to your personal tastes and craft something that is uniquely you.
We opened our first location in downtown Kamloops in 2013. The whole reason that we started our business is that we wanted to do things differently. At The Bench, we promise that you’ll always have an enjoyable experience when coming into our store, and our work will always be done to the highest level of quality.
After a successful launch in Kamloops, The Bench opened a second location in the Okanagan in 2014. Our newest store is located in the heart of Pandosy Village in Kelowna, and our team is always busy working with all of our great clients in Kelowna and the surrounding communities.
In 2016 we opened out 3rd location in the beautiful Fraser Valley in Chilliwack. This location was primarily used as our head office however we seem to be getting more and more local clients looking for someone to still make that hand made traditional piece or special heirloom repair.
