Hoping to use the specialist knowledge in this forum to come to my aid as a non-resident of Canada.
I'm based in the UK but will be engagement ring shopping with my Canadian partner somewhere in Canada so she can play a role in picking her ring (I am concerned about sizing differences).
Anyhow, I'm looking to do this as a surprise with a weekend break attached- I was wondering if there are any specific places in Canada renowned for diamond sales? In London we have Hatton Garden where I had planned to go (most of you will no doubt know Hatton Garden but it is essentially a diamond 'district' of London with competitive pricing and multiple stores) but I do not want to take a risk on a ring with sizing issues as I will be moving to Canada before proposing.
We're based in Ottawa, so Montreal/ Toronto and surrounding are all easily accessible. I realise any major city will have plenty of jewelry stores where one can find engagement rings but I was looking for something similar to Hatton Garden as above.
Does this exist? I would be most grateful for any advice.
