Distinct, Unique and Inspiring

Creole Jewellery Design has been specializing in fine custom jewellery in Victoria, BC since 1991.  Creole Carmichael is the designer, goldsmith and platinum specialist at Creole Jewellery Design.

Exceptional quality and uniqueness of design is what gives Creole Jewellery Design the reputation of unparallel distinction in the jewellery industry.  Creole’s designs are innovative and fresh, yet classic,  sophisticated and original.  Crafted to the highest standards in house by the mother and son team of Creole and Trent, customers can be assured of quality excellence.

While several of Creole’s designs are hand fabricated, her design savvy is what sets her apart from other jewellery designers.  By using 3D CAD technology in her design methods she takes jewelry design to a new level.   CAD jewelry design goes beyond the traditional hand sketch and allows the buyer to see a virtual 3D model before the design goes into production.  With a decade of experience in the modern world of CAD jewellery design, she is both an industry expert and a true pioneer in the field.   Her twenty-one years of experience as a bench jeweller and her expertise and attention to detail take her jewellery designs to a level beyond the bounds of her competition.  From bench fabrication, gem setting, casting, finishing and design she has done it all and still does – and with great perfection.  Luxury jewellery is her passion.

Creole is pure technician and artist combined.  “Understanding structure is the base of all jewellery design.  It is architecture on a miniature scale. Knowledge of metallurgy and gemstone/mineral properties is essential.  Experience and understanding of the combination of all of these is what separates a good jewellery designer from a great jewellery designer.  I design architecture on a miniature scale -  in Technicolor - with the most precious of materials.”  Creole’s love of art and her talent in painting and sketching along with her science background and years of experience as a goldsmith and platinumsmith is evident in the quality and superiority of her stunning and impressive designs.

Creole’s custom designs are truly one-of-a-kind and made to customer specifications and design ideas.  No two pieces of custom jewellery are ever the same and no one else will ever be wearing the same piece of jewellery as you.  Your design is tailored to you, your life style and spending plan. We work with you in creating a beautifully designed and expertly crafted jewellery piece for you to enjoy and be proud to wear.

All custom designs and production line pieces are created in platinum and gold. We source the highest quality metals, coloured gemstones, Canadian diamonds and natural untreated coloured diamonds for our clients.  All of our metals and stones are ethically sourced.

To me a good evening is a bottle of wine, a good girlfriend, and my collection of Tiffany Blue Books to drool over.

A job is just a job if all you see it as is a job. Work is a vehicle to promote full self expression of your creativity, ingenuity and talent.

Rich and rare were the gems she wore, And a bright gold ring on her hand she bore.
