Jewelry that reaches heirloom status is prized for so much more than its sparkle. It keeps family history alive, and helps later generations feel the love and lives of those who came before.
When purchasing jewelry with heirloom quality in mind, look for the following:
Distinct and timeless style: Unique designs stand the test of time far more than trendy ones.
Handcrafted pieces: A necklace, ring or other piece of jewelry that has been created by a skillful, talented hand is much more enduring — and alluring.
Accreditation and awards: If a jeweler, like Coffin & Trout Fine Jewellers, has earned certain credentials, you’ll know they have the right advanced training to select, cut and place the highest rated diamonds and other gemstones.
The best precious metals: Longevity of the final product is critical, and only highly trained, experienced jewelry designers have the skills to both source and successfully craft jewelry from the highest quality metals.

This particular ring, with delicate tendrils of rose gold cupping a 5.24ct pink tourmaline, would have been perfectly at home a full century ago. And a century from now, those to whom you pass it down will cherish its lovely symmetry and dazzling color.
Jewelry that highlights a birthstone or favorite color is one way to preserve family memories. This example features a 9.26ct elongated cushion-cut bi-color topaz swaying from a platinum, 18K yellow and rose gold pendant, flanked by umba sapphires and arcing diamonds.
When it comes to both durability and beauty, platinum is a favorite of jewelers and those who wear their creations. Add layers of diamonds and a stunning 3.01ct oval diamond, as you have in this diamond ring, and you have a brilliant heirloom ring in the making.
Vintage-inspired designs are a favorite when it comes to heirloom jewelry. Even better: diamonds of the highest quality cut, color and clarity. In this ring, a 3.50ct radiant cut diamond perches atop a platinum setting adorned with delicate curves.
Award-winning design is one sure qualification for an heirloom piece, and this ring was designed by our own Randy Coffin, an internationally award-winning designer. A 4.94ct oval blue sapphire is crowned with waves of 54 round blue sapphires and embellished with 188 colorless diamonds.
When selecting a piece that you intend to become an heirloom, look for a classic design with an enchanting twist. This diamond bangle is no ordinary diamond bracelet. Not only is it cast with a specific alloy that is naturally brighter and whiter, it also features 111 colorless diamonds.
We can help you find or create an heirloom-quality piece that will be treasured by you now, and by your family members forever. Stop in to see these and other pieces and learn what makes Coffin & Trout different from other jewelers.
