Welcome to Jewels on Ninth, a full-service jewellery store in downtown Cranbrook that is here to help friends, families and couples build a lifetime of memories.
A Little History
How did we get started? Jewels on Ninth opened in 1993 but our story actually dates back to 1988 when owners Heather and Brian Masich got engaged Christmas eve on Burnaby mountain. Heather proposed to Brian, and it’s something they laugh about now since Brian had a custom ring and proposal planned for the very next day. “I kind of stole his thunder,” says Heather.
Needless to say, the answer was yes, and for the next five years, Heather and Brian worked as a husband and wife team, running several family-owned jewellery stores in Vancouver.
After starting their family, Heather and Brian decided it was time to pack up their children, Brendan and Victoria and leave the big city behind. Attracted by the outdoor-oriented lifestyle and Brian's birth place (Kimberley) they moved to The Kootenays and so began Jewels on Ninth.
Small Town Charm, Large City Selection
Since then, Heather and Brian have had the pleasure of seeing their customers get engaged, married and have kids of their own. They’ve been able to share in the joy of celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and other special events.
With the help of their staff, Heather and Brian Masich have created a business where people can and do stop in just to have a friendly chat.
But a lot has changed since Heather and Brian started the store. The world today is a busy place and that’s why Jewels on Ninth offers you the convenience of asking questions and placing an order by text or email. Have something specific in mind? Or have a picture of something you love and have to have? We’ll custom-build it for you.
What hasn’t changed is our commitment to quality. We continue to work with top brands like Swarovski, Pandora and Steelx. Our diamonds are from Canadian-based Maple Leaf Diamonds and like memories, we believe they should last forever. That’s why we offer a no hassle, 5-year diamond replacement guarantee. This, along with our 15-day money back guarantee.
Our prices are competitive as well. Every day, we offer 20 percent off our diamond jewellery, so you don’t have to wait for a sale to get lower-than-retail pricing.
Why? We are a part of this community too, and we want to make sure our friends and neighbours feel good about their purchases. It’s you who is creating the memories, we’re just helping you make them better.
