About Dominique Dufour, Owner & Master Jeweler

My career as a jeweler began at the Montreal School of Jewelry (l'École de joaillerie de Montréal), where I finished my training in 2000. After several years of working with renowned jewelers, I started my own studio in Montreal, and later, in the Laurentides region of Quebec. In 2009, I had the opportunity to take over the Lachute-based studio and boutique of world-renowned jeweler Gilbert Rhême, who had passed away the previous year. Mr. Rhême, who was one of my instructors at the École de joaillerie de Montréal, left behind an inspiring creative space in addition to an established clientele.

In 2011, I founded my current studio and boutique, which is dedicated to jewelry from Quebec. Located in Rosemere, a northern suburb of Montreal, my business allowed me to realize a dream I had since jewelry school : creating a venue to showcase jewelry from Quebec designers while also providing on-site artisanal jewelry services, including custom-made designs as well as repair and redesign of client pieces.

Unique in Quebec, my boutique displays and sells the work of 20 Quebec jewelry designers. In addition, I feature the work of other Quebec jewelry designers in an on-site exhibition space, with rotating exhibits every three months. The exhibition space gives Quebec jewelry designers the chance to increase their visibility while at the same time giving our customers the chance to discover fresh talent from our province.

I share the boutique space with my spouse, owner of nous • vous • ils, which represents the work of over 70 professional artisans.


Showcase of Quebecois jewelry

At our boutique in Rosemère, you can shop our handmade jewelry, as well as jewelry from  several other Quebec jewelry designers.



Exhibition space

Inside our studio-boutique, I feature the work of other Quebec jewelry designers in an on-site exhibition space, with rotating exhibits every three months. The exhibition space gives Quebec jewelry designers the chance to increase their visibility while at the same time giving our customers the chance to discover fresh talent from Quebec. We use the space to showcase unique pieces that might otherwise be found in a museum or gallery.

We are also committed to featuring up-and-coming talent among recent college graduates from the École de joaillerie de Montréal. Upon graduating, the most distinguished students benefit from a first showing of their work for three months in our exhibition space.

Special events

At different times throughout the year, we invite you to our boutique to take part in special events like « Pearl Day » and « Spotlight on Stones. » At the same time, you can meet gemologists and brokers and shop their specially-selected inventory at the event. Following a purchase, we can help you create a custom piece of jewelry to show off your new find.
