About The Jewellery

 

A love of classic glamour is at the core of Leah Yard Designs. The filigree style throughout the collection has become a signature element. The curvature of the frames adds a timeless touch to each piece.

"Jewellery is so whimsical, it has always been my favourite accessory. I want to design pieces that easily mix and match and celebrate the wearer's personal style. My hope is to make jewellery that adds a touch of glamour to each day."

IN THE STUDIO

Nestled in Vancouver's historic Chinatown, the LYD studio is where you can find us dreaming up our next collection. It all starts with a creative spark...

We love opening our doors to you. Book a visit to shop our latest collection in-person. 

Online orders are filled and shipped from Vancouver. The jewellery is packaged in a custom box with care instructions. Our care cards are beautifully designed and meant to be kept in your jewellery box.

We do our best to reduce waste by using one box for multiple items, but if you require extra boxes or gift wrapping, please let us know as we are more than happy to accommodate!



THE PROCESS

Each piece of jewellery is designed in Vancouver. The complete collection is made in Canada, India, and The United States. We are proud to work with production partners that are aligned with the LYD company ethics and vision.

At our Vancouver Studio we use a variety of techniques including metal forming, hammering, drilling and wire wrapping. Items are checked for quality before being assembled by hand.

Many of our items are made to order. Size and clarity of the gemstones may vary, as we work with (and adore) semi-precious materials.

Each piece is carefully checked for quality before shipping from our Vancouver studio.

 

THE METALS

14 KARAT GOLD FILL: Gold Fill is a thick layer of gold bonded to a brass core. 
 
The requirement of Gold-Fill is weight-based and states that a piece must contain 5% solid gold of the item's total weight. Due to the bonding method of pressure and heat, this amazing metal can withstand hammering, texturizing, and forming.

Though it can naturally darken over time, it can be easily re-polished and with proper care, Gold-Fill can be considered a long-term metal. Due to its cost and durability, Gold Fill is the next best option to solid gold!

ROSE GOLD FILL: Rose gold is a gold and copper alloy. Rose Gold Fill is a thick layer of Rose Gold bonded to a brass core.
 
Like 14 Karat Gold Fill, Rose Gold Fill uses a weight-based requirement: to meet this, it must contain 5% solid Rose Gold of the item's total weight.

STERLING SILVER: Also known as 925 Silver, is Silver which is 92.5% purity.  

VERMEIL: Vermeil is a Sterling Silver core, which has been guided with Gold. Our plated items have a Sterling Silver base, with a thick 14 Karat Gold plating overtop.

*Please note: Our logo tags are a mixture of Sterling Silver and Gold Plated Brass
