Gabriela and Costin Lazar - As a team with a background in architecture and art, we have re-launched SILVERBRIDGE in 1989 and immersed ourselves with gusto into the most exciting endeavor of designing, making and retailing a dream product: art jewellery. We have always relied on our ability to offer an admirably fine jewellery collection, a modern design that sets us apart, all supported by a friendly and comprehensive customer service.
Trained in Europe as a sculptor and goldsmith, Costin, who works out of his studio in downtown Toronto, established himself as an independent designer in 1979. A few years later, Gabriela, who trained as an architect in Germany became the manager of Silverbridge. The collaboration between the sculptor and the architect leads to the sophisticated, innovative and timeless jewellery collection we present online and by appointment.
The collection consists of ready made pieces in sterling silver and eighteen karat gold, and custom design fine jewellery in precious metals: eighteen karat gold, sterling silver, platinum.
All pieces are solid, hand made and beautifully finished, with high tactile characteristics. The inspiration is nature itself, a recurring motif being the ever present search for balance between opposing elements, such as a sharp line in harmony with a full, sensual shape. The results are original pieces, instantly recognizable, displaying a deceptive simplicity.
They reflect and communicate the spirit of our times.
Bracelets - are hand made in various sizes from small to large.
Necklaces - many of our necklaces are available in various lengths.
Gemstones - we use natural gemstones for rings and necklaces.
Finishes - highly polished or satin matte finish, smooth or hammered.
