Founded in 1978 in Guelph, Ontario, by brothers Greg and Jeff Buzbuzian, Knar Jewellery began as a tiny 200-square-foot jewellery shop. In 1985, the two opened a second location in downtown Kitchener/Waterloo. The Guelph location was completely renovated in 2004 to over 4,000 square feet. Encompassing the full three stories, Knar Jewellery’s home office is its landmark Tudor-design heritage building in Guelph. In the summer of 2005, the third location was opened in Oakville, and it was expanded in 2011. Knar Jewellery is also extremely excited to offer Toronto the Knar experience, with the opening of another location at 38 Avenue Road in the heart of Toronto’s exclusive Yorkville district.
Since 1979, Greg and Jeff, and their dynamic team, have built 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 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 Kitchener/Waterloo, Cambridge, Oakville and Toronto communities through support of its organizations and charities.
