On Friday, the National Museum of Canada released its annual report on the world's diamonds, and it was an illuminating look at how diamonds are made and how the price of the precious metals has affected the world."We're seeing a surge in the supply of diamonds and that's creating a demand that's pushing prices up," said John Friesen, senior vice-president of the National Museums of Canada."But th...
The necklace was the brainchild of a Toronto jeweller who wanted to make a statement that her heritage and heritage heritage heritage was a part of her, not just something to brag about.
“The gold medallic design of the necklace is a symbol of my heritage,” said Heather Henningsen, whose shop is in a former grocery store on Bloor Street West.
The necklace, which was designed by Heather Harningsen and sold in April, is a combination of three different styles. “
It’s a symbol for who I am and I feel like it’s really symbolic of the way I think about my heritage.”
The necklace, which was designed by Heather Harningsen and sold in April, is a combination of three different styles.
The three are gold, silver and bronze.
The gold medal features a black panther and two small snakes.
The silver one has a large, green sun and a small red snake.
The necklace was designed with two goals in mind.
“The idea was to do something very meaningful for the community,” said Hennonsen.
“To make a really meaningful statement.”
“I wanted to create a symbol that people can wear in a way that’s culturally appropriate.”
Henningsens father, who was born in Sweden, moved to Toronto in the 1970s to be closer to his family and he had to work in order to support them.
He said he had always loved the city.
“It was always very close to home,” said his father.
“There was always a sense of being connected to the city.”
The jewellery shop owner said she has received a lot of feedback about the necklace, but said she had also received many compliments.
“People said, ‘It’s very beautiful, I love it.
I like the jewellery, it’s a great necklace.
I’m going to wear it with my necklace.'”
She said it’s been great and people love it, but they’ve also been really respectful and they appreciate the uniqueness of the design.
“The $500K necklace is part of the $100K collection.
The gold and silver medallons were designed by jeweller Heather Hinningsen for $50,000 in the fall of 2016.
The bronze medallon was designed in 2018 and sold for $75,000.
The jeweller said she originally wanted the gold medals because they were part of a “greatest-hits collection.””
“When you think of the meaning of a symbol you look at the symbolism of the word ‘Jewelry,’ and it just seems like it was meant to be a symbol.””
She said the necklace would be sold in a different colour.”

Hennonsens shop has a small selection of jewellers’ jewelry for sale and she plans to be able to offer the gold and platinum medallas.
“When I started designing it, I didn’t know what I was going to get, but I just thought it was going a little too high,” she added.
Harningsens son, Andrew, has been looking forward to the day when his father can wear the necklace to work and to the grocery store.
“I have to wear my necklace every day,” he said.
“And it’s not just because it’s something I’m wearing.
I think it’s part of who I’m, I think I’m a Canadian and I think that I’m proud of it.”
The gold necklace is now in the shop’s permanent collection.
