"Come visit our beautiful showroom!"
Barclay’s Fine Custom Jewellers was established in 1986 in the heart of Oak Bay Village. The location in Athlone Court was literally built around the classic jewellery showcases.
In 2007 the store underwent an expansive renovation to include a second level to accommodate workshops for both Goldsmithing and Watch repair.The renovation also allowed for the addition of other on-site services including engraving. Visit our showroom in Oak Bay to browse our diverse selection of jewellery and to speak to our staff about the many services we offer.

“I love the look of 18 karat gold,” a lady in the shop recently commented to me. “What a shame it isn’t as strong as 10 karat.” This is a common misconception. Read More
When talking about gemstones we often hear about how “hard” or “soft” a stone is. The number attributed to the susceptibility of scratching on the stone is based on the Mohs’ scale of hardness developed by German mineralogist Friedrich Mohs. Diamonds are the hardest (diamonds could scratch all others) at 10 on the scale and talc is the softest at 1. Read More
Have you ever wondered what your jewellery is worth but don’t know how to find out? What is an appraisal and why should you get one? An appraisal is a typed certificate stating the description and value of your item. The value is determined based on the weight, measurement and type of metal used to create the piece; this is the Insurable Replacement Value. Read More
Are you thinking it might be time to part with some of your jewellery that has been sitting in a box or drawer for the past few years? And are you wondering if it is worth selling or if you should just give it away to someone? Read More
Whether it be new, custom or estate jewellery I'm interested in, there is only one stop for me and that is because of Roberta Duff. And that stop for me is Barclays Fine Custom Jewellers. Roberta is genuinely knowledgeable and creative with her advice and designs. Her clarity of direction has enabled me to be confident in making decisions when acquiring the most beautiful of adornments such as rings, brooches and bracelets. I truly enjoy my visits to the store and am always welcomed by the wonderful staff.

Bill and I decided to design my wedding ring together after seeing our friends' breathtaking, one-of-a-kind rings designed by Roberta Duff. Both rings beautifully matched each of their personalities. With ideas and simple sketches, we approached Robbie at Barclay's Fine Custom Jewellers to begin the exciting process to create a piece of custom jewellery. We worked with her to create the unique wedding ring that so perfectly suits my personal style as well as all that we wanted the ring to symbolize. My wedding ring shows our journey together in which each stone represents a year together with the main stone representing our wedding. In the future, we will add a small stone for every anniversary celebrated. The ring will evolve, grow and change just like our relationship.
They say that "diamonds are a girl's best friend" and for me there is no better place to find my best friend than at Barclay's Fine Custom Jewellers. I have been a client of Barclay's for a long time and have purchased various pieces of jewellery over the years. Not only is the selection of jewellery outstanding, it is the attention to detail by the staff that is most impressive - whether it be in the selection and/or design process or simply answering questions. They are genuine in caring that you are completely satisfied. Barclay's in itself is a real gem.
Barclay's Fine Custom Jewellers customer service is excellent. Roberta and Geoffrey have bent over backwards to please our whole family. I could not say enough about the service. I love the wonderful gifts they have helped my husband choose. The diamond clasp Roberta designed for my pearls is versatile as well as beautiful. Their patience and humour while my daughters, granddaughter and I examine the Pandora collection makes it fun to shop to shop at Barclay's Fine Custom Jewellers.
