From immaculate sapphires and diamonds pulled out of the world's best mines, to the eye-popping engagement rings rendered and modelled in our upstairs design studio, we're proud of the product we provide at Cavalier. Our team of specialists is available by appointment at our Gastown storefront to present our gemstone inventory, provide expert advice, consult on ring designs, and other custom request. Get in touch with us any time.
Upon joining the family business as a teenager, Dane was quickly taken with an industry where the clientele is as varied as the travel opportunities. Following 7 years as a wholesaler, with clients from Victoria to Halifax, Dane and Keith set up "shoppe" in Vancouver's Gastown neighbourhood. Through yearly trips to Colombia, Bangkok, Sri Lanka, and Myanmar, Dane ensures Cavalier remains true to its mine-to market ideals.
Of the countless future plans Keith and Dane made growing up, owning a jewellery store seemed especially ambitious. However, much like with the stories of our countless clients, life has a way of making the most unlikely paths converge into something great. An avid backcountry skier, Keith is also recently married, making him well-versed in all aspects of the wedding planning process.
After Dane and Keith, Bri was (almost literally) the third person to walk through Cavalier's doors. Lucky for them, she hasn't left since. As indispensable as she is knowledgeable, Brianna curates and markets the Cavalier brand with the local consumer in mind. Whether sightseeing in her home city, or catching a flight to explore someone else's, Bri is always looking forward to her next adventure.
Having worked in marketing and design for 3 years, Taylor possesses an unwavering commitment to both her clients and the jewellery industry. Creative and thoughtful, she loves working with clients to incorporate Cavalier's latest collection of ethically-sourced stones into their own custom projects.
While he spent recent years travelling to Canadian Diamond mines, overseeing all aspects relating to buying and manufacturing, Bill is thrilled to be settled in Vancouver as part of the Cavalier team. Now, he uses his vast institutional knowledge to guide clients as he sources and helps manufacture their custom engagement rings. With less time spent with wheels in the air, Bill has more time to indulge his passion for wheels on the ground, spending his free time biking down Grouse Mountain, or rollerblading the Seawall.
