History of Knar
Founded in 1978 in Guelph, Ontario, by brothers Greg and Jeff Buzbuzian, Knar began as a tiny 200 square foot jewellery shop and in 1985 opened a second location in downtown Kitchener/Waterloo. In 2004 the Guelph location was completely renovated to become over 4000 square feet, encompassing the full three stories of its landmark Tudor designed heritage building. In summer 2005 our third location was opened in Oakville and expanded in 2011. We are also extremely excited to offer Toronto the Knar experience, with the opening of a location at 38 Avenue Road in the heart of Toronto’s exclusive Yorkville district.
Since 1979, Greg, Jeff and their dynamic team have created stores of innovative style, showcasing premier fine jewellery and timepieces.
From the beginning, Knar Jewellery has respected and practiced the time honoured traditions involved in creating fine jewelled works of art. Additionally, over the past decade, Knar has become a recognized leader in the use of advanced technology in design and manufacturing. Exceeding client expectations is accomplished by offering the best quality, excellent service and professional sales advice. Knar Jewellery is very proud to serve the Guelph, Kitchener/Waterloo, Cambridge Oakville and Toronto communities through support of its organizations and charities.
