History of Knar
Founded in 1978 in Guelph, Ontario by brothers Greg and Jeff Buzbuzian, Knar Jewellery began as a tiny 200 square foot jewellery shop in downtown Guelph 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 the third location was opened in Oakville and expanded in 2011. The most recent new location opened in 2012 in Toronto’s exclusive Yorkville district at 38 Avenue Road. After 30 years in Kitchener/Waterloo the store closed in 2016 and today Knar Jewellery welcomes its loyal clients to three stores in Guelph, Oakville and Toronto.
Since 1978, 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, Knar Jewellery 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, Oakville and Toronto communities through support of its organizations and charities.
