black friday finds at true bijoux

Local Ottawa jeweller True Bijoux has been one of my go-to spots for years. It's on Sparks Street just a few blocks from my day job, so I often pop over on my lunch break for a look-see. Their Black Friday deals are EPIC, with massive savings on everything from sterling silver to diamonds, staring at just $30.

Best part? They made these pieces in-house with recycled materials so you can shop sustainably.

This year True Bijoux Black Friday deals run from Saturday November 23 - Saturday November 30, and I've rounded up my top picks to make your shopping easier. Quantities are extremely limited (in some cases just one!) so shop early to avoid missing out!

quartz teardrop earrings, $45

These drop earrings feature a stone called rutilated quartz that has a black and grey marble effect, making every pair unique. I love these because you can easily dress them down with jeans or dress them up with a holiday outfit. They're available in gold or silver, regularly $95 but just $45 for Black Friday.

semi-precious tennis bracelet, $75

This is another piece that works just as well with jeans as a glitzy outfit: True Bijoux's tennis bracelet with semi-precious stones. This style is available in amethyst and laboradorite (mostly purple tones) or moonstone and treated iolite (mostly blue tones) in gold-plated sterling silver. There's a silver version with rose quartz and amethyst too! Regularly $149 but $75 for Black Friday.

pebble statement earrings, $60

This style is a longtime favourite of mine. Available in silver or gold, these brushed pebble earrings are a statement stye without the weight. They're super light and won't tug at your ears, even after hours of wear. Regularly $95, for Black Friday they're $60.

semi-precious cluster earrings, $45

I wore these cluster earrings to a wedding this summer and loved them: the stones catch the light beautifully! They're a great gift for those who prefer studs to dangly earrings, and come in a variety of colour combinations including silver or gold settings, and stones in cool and warm tones. Regularly $95 but $45 for Black Friday.

hoop earrings with Drop stone, $30

These are such a steal. Available in silver or gold, these little hoops have with a semi-precious drop stone in chalcedony (the blueish tone below) or amethyst, and you can easily slide the stone off if you want to wear the hoops on their own. There's also a matching necklace for this style, in yellow gold or sterling silver. Regularly $59, but just $30 for Black Friday.

tahitian pearl lariat necklace, $125

This is such a unique upcylced necklace. Lindsay, True Bijoux's founder and head designer, created these in-house using grey Tahitian pearls, baroque vintage findings from an estate collection, and a sterling silver lariat chain. The pearl hangs freely but if you'd like to tack it in place at your own perfect length, True Bijoux will do so free of charge. This y-shaped style is perfect for everything from plunging necklines to turtlenecks! Regularly $270, $125 for Black Friday.

rose gold Diamond hoops, $1995

These are quite the splurge but oh so stunning! Crafted in rose gold with a total weight of 1 carat in brilliant cut diamonds, these inside-out hoop earrings have a super secure closure that's easy to use: squeeze to open or close and these beauties will be held securely in place. Regularly $3595 but $1995 for Black Friday. Santa, I've been good! 😍

art deco diamond ring, $1995

This spectacular ring deserves a few pictures. With major art deco vibes, this one of a kind marquise diamond ring features a unique east-west setting in 14k white gold. The centre diamond is .61 carats, and the whole ring has a total weight of .85 carats. It's approximately size 7, but for $150 True Bijoux will resize it in-house to fit anyone. Regularly $2995, for Black Friday it's $1995. Only one available!

more deals in-store

True Bijoux is bursting with Black Friday deals, so many that I couldn't fit them all into this post and some of them you won't even find on their website. Pop into their shop on Sparks Street before November 30 and you'll find something for everyone on your list -- maybe even a little something for you!
