Our Story

A second generation jewellery and gift store

Babcock Jewellers was started by Walter Babcock in the charming town of Dresden in 1953. His son Brent, who grew up working in his father’s store obtained his Bachelors of Business Management degree from Ryerson University in Toronto as well as his Certificate of Diamonds and Diamond Grading from the Gemological Institute of America. While in Toronto Brent gained valuable experience working in the jewellery industry for another four years before returning to Dresden to join his father in 1986 and eventually took over the reins in 1991.

Babcock Jewellers started out as a quaint little store on the West side of St. George St. with a move across the street soon after. Bursting at the seams with more and more product lines of jewellery, giftware and collectibles, a section of wall was removed to allow expansion into the building next to it in 2001 virtually doubling the sales floor size to over 1800 square feet.


What Makes Us Different?

At Babcock Jewellers you will find unique and exciting merchandise from all over the world with many items sourced from Canadian suppliers and manufacturers. If there is something you are looking for but we do not have it in stock, we will try our best to locate or custom make it for you.

With the tag line “Your Diamond Experts” we keep current on the latest trends in diamonds and diamond jewellery. Come in anytime and get a diamond education from Brent whether you are interested in understanding diamond quality characteristics, Canadian diamonds, laboratory created diamonds, or natural versus enhanced coloured diamonds just to name a few.

Babcock offers a unique “layaway plan” which lets you put your purchases on hold with a small down payment and pick up later when needed with no interest charges. This is a great way to start your Christmas shopping early, often getting unique items that you cannot get closer to the date you need them.

Great prices all the time. Custom design jewellery made possible through affiliation with the most highly advanced technology available in the jewellery design industry including 3 dimensional CAD design and laser welding capabilities.
