Birks & Mayors Inc., a leading operator of luxury jewelry stores, has partnered with international jeweler H.Stern to launch the designer’s collections in four Mayors stores in Florida and six Birks stores in Canada. This will make Mayors one of only a few retailers in Florida to carry H.Stern merchandise, and Birks will become the exclusive partner to introduce the brand to Canada, the company said in a statement.
The H.Stern collections offered at Birks & Mayors stores, which include the designer’s signature Stars collection, are inspired by nature and its essential elements: Blazing fires, the transparency of clear water, and the texture of sand and stones. Many of the pieces are available in H.Stern’s exclusive 18k Noble Gold alloy, a unique “flesh tone” alloy that has the elegance of white gold and the warmth of yellow.
H.Stern merchandise has been available since Tuesday at Mayors locations at Dadeland Mall, Aventura Mall, PGA Commons, and The Galleria at Ft. Lauderdale; and Birks locations in Calgary, Vancouver, Mississauga, Montreal, and Toronto at the Bloor flagship store and Toronto Eaton Centre.
Founded in 1945 by German-born Hans Stern, the H.Stern jewelry brand first began with a boutique in Rio de Janeiro. The company’s jewelry is present in 26 countries through wholly owned boutiques and a network of retail partners such as Birks & Mayors. H.Stern jewels are often seen completing the red-carpet looks of celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Sharon Stone. Most recently, at the 2007 Oscars, stars Emily Blunt, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Jada Pinkett Smith wore H.Stern.
