Alan Anderson in the media
Once again, Jewels by Alan Anderson was invited by Wedluxe to feature our bridal pieces. We are thrilled to be so prominently displayed both on the cover and throughout “The White Queen” fashion editorial. On the cover, the Queen flaunts a signature sautoir of a 1960’s Lucite Grey Mauve Pearl surrounded by 1950’s Swarovski Black Alaskan Diamond crystals and 1940’s unfoiled Austrian crystals with a matching rigid cuff. “The White Queen” shoot, according to Wedluxe, was inspired by C.S. Lewis’ fantasy novel, “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe,” and displays our pieces in a dramatic way. We love the innovative use of our jewellery, especially our ‘crystal flex’ bracelet worn as a headpiece (page 230.)
Working with brides is a passion of ours and our jewellery adds an extra boldness to their “dream wedding look.” More of our collection can be found at Kleinfeld at Hudson’s Bay.

We’re excited to be included in a photo shoot at the Art Gallery of Ontario for the inaugural issue of Dauphine Magazine – A Magazine Collection of Fine Art Weddings. Issue One’s theme, “The Bespoke Opulence Issue,” is definitely part of what Jewels by Alan Anderson’s studio is all about.

Jewels by Alan Anderson took the national title of ‘Canadian Jewelry Designer of the Year’ at the annual Canadian Wedding Industry Awards held this week. The event, hosted at the Ritz-Carlton Toronto, honoured wedding and event professionals in 16 categories and was attended by the wedding industry’s luminaries in fashion, retail and event planning.
Jewels by Alan Anderson was chosen from a field of fine and costume jewelry designers, receiving the highest score in this category across all regions in Canada, from an esteemed panel of judges that included fashion expert, designer and television personality Randy Fenoli, Francis Guindon of Maison Birks, Rebecca Grinnals of Engaging Concepts, Marcy Blum of Marcy Blum & Associates, Ellen Black of Lehr & Black and Laura Gutkin of Etsy Canada.
“I am equally thrilled and humbled to be given this national recognition,” said Alan Anderson, Founder and Designer, Jewels by Alan Anderson. “I applaud all the sponsors and those who have come together to create and support this event. What an incredible opportunity to recognize the many talented designers and innovators who lead Canada’s multi-billion dollar industry.”
Alan’s signature collars, cuffs, earrings, and sautoires have become a choice for bold bridal parties who want statement jewelry, but the brand received further support in the wedding market this year when it was selected to be part of the distinct collection at Kleinfeld Hudson’s Bay in Toronto. Alan created a bespoke collection of 28 pieces and introduced a grouping of tiaras, all based on historical jewelry.
Canadian jewellery designers are gaining momentum. Suzanne Rogers is among their loyal followers and shows off her favourite pieces.
“Her jewellery box houses dramatic costume sparklers by Alan Anderson, ‘an incredibly creative man,’” she says.
Reminiscent of a 1940’s Veronica Lake, ET Canada Host Cheryl Hickey wears our aquamarine waterfall collar. The collar, made of rare 1930’s aquamarines, is just one of the many pieces Cheryl wore on-air during TIFF 2014. We love working with Cheryl and her fabulous stylist, Maggie Bill.
