Palladio has long been revered in Vancouver for its originality and design excellence in creating unique, trendsetting jewellery. And with a new showroom recently opened at 900 West Hastings Street, Vancouverites have a greater opportunity to get to know this jeweller’s fine craftsmanship and one-of-a-kind offerings.

 

The new showroom showcases Palladio’s love of cutting-edge design, and aims to combine its “passion for perfection” with topnotch client service.

Stepping inside the new showroom, clients might be immediately transfixed by the sheer magnificence of the space. Inspired by the idea of a precious jewellery box, the interior creates an exclusive shopping experience that showcases — like a jewellery box — the store’s precious products.

Interior finishes blend the rich warmth of wood with white and gold Calacatta marble imported from Italy. Bronze metal accents feature a repeating pattern of the Palladio “P,” reminiscent of links in a bracelet.

And great care has been taken to respect the history and pedigree of the Palladio brand; the design is classic and timeless, but leverages new technology in lighting and high-clarity display glass to optimize presentation of merchandise. There’s a timeless elegance in the design, and yet the modern mastery is captivating.

Once inside, a world of inspiration awaits, with stunning, one-of-a-kind pieces for men and women, as well as fashion-forward collections from sought-after designers around the world.

For those looking for something truly original, Palladio’s master goldsmiths and craftsmen can bring ideas to life, custom-creating meaningful pieces, using rare gems, pure metals and fine diamonds.

Palladio’s reputation for design excellence and its ability to identify new trends extends to masterfully crafted timepieces. A passion for horology drives the desire to introduce refined, international brands to Vancouver and Canada, and Palladio has a history of sourcing and introducing rare and fine timepieces.

Master goldsmiths and craftsmen can bring ideas

The current collection includes boutique manufacturers Parmigiani Fleurier, H. Moser & Cie. and F.P. Journe. Each was first introduced to the Canadian market by Palladio, and its team continues to source the world for one-of-a-kind timepieces that combine tradition and modern innovation.

In addition to offering the some of the world’s very best in luxury brand watches, Palladio has the distinction of being the only authorized retailer in Canada of H. Moser & Cie. — a rare and exclusive line of luxury timepieces. H. Moser & Cie. produces just 1,200 pieces each year, so for those who own one, the chance of running into someone with a similar watch is highly unlikely.

The same can be said about the innovative creations by F.P. Journe. This award-wining watchmaker produces less than 800 high-end horology watches annually, and these wearable, beautiful, thoughtful and rare timepieces add style and elegance to those who wear them.

Also showcased at Palladio are exclusive timepieces by Carl F. Bucherer, Raymond Weil and Rolex. Palladio is part of the worldwide network of official Rolex retailers and has incorporated a dedicated Rolex boutique into the new showroom. Only official Rolex retailers are authorized to sell and maintain Rolex watches, which are crafted with scrupulous attention to detail and exacting standards.

Beautiful timepieces, unique jewellery and an exquisite space — all await in the Palladio “jewellery box.”
