Unsurpassed Quality and Design
Fine craftsmanship and quality is what you’ll find when you visit Bastion Jewellers in our downtown Nanaimo location. Whether you’re shopping for a special ready-to-wear piece of jewellery, or wanting to bring your vision to life through a custom design, you can depend on our friendly and knowledgable staff to help you find or create that special piece that says perfection.
Looking for something local? We’ve got a wonderful selection of pendants, earrings, bracelets, and rings all made by local artisans.
Here at Bastion, jewellery is more than bling. It’s a personal expression of your individuality. When we combine our expertise with your vision and inspiration, we can create a true work of art. As with all art, the design process and creation of your one-of-a-kind piece takes time, but the end result will be worth the wait.
Bill practices traditional jewellery making the old-fashioned way. He carves master models out of wax to create custom designs then hand-fabricates the piece which gives him the freedom to make exceptionally beautiful, high-quality finished jewellery. Whether it’s a favourite logo, ring design, or an art-deco reproduction of an antique item, we create custom items in gold, silver, platinum, or a new blend of platinum-silver.
During the past 25 years, we at Bastion Jewellers have dedicated ourselves to our craft and have had the pleasure of working and collaborating with many exceptional artists within the industry. One such artist is master goldsmith, Anthony Wicks, whom we are now welcoming to our team. Anthony started his training at Sir John Cass School of Art in London, England, where he earned his City and Guilds accreditation and then completed a five-year apprenticeship in London’s West End where he trained in hand-fabrication of antique reproductions and art-deco designs. We know Anthony’s attention to detail and demand for excellence will ensure our clients continue to receive the highest level of service and workmanship we are known for.
We can also assist you with the restoration of antique and estate jewellery. From minor repairs to full restorations, you can trust your jewellery treasures with us. With caring hands, we employ old-world artistry and today’s technological advances to restore your jewels to their original beauty and luster.
We look forward to having you come to our showroom and to helping you find, create, restore, or repair that extraordinary piece that will hold special memories for years to come.
We also carry a variety of jewellery crafted by local artisans.
