For years, Skanda Jewelry has been empowering individuals to discover their creativity and nourish their souls. The very ambiance of the store exudes a world of luxury, beauty and far eastern mystique.
As you cross the threshold you are grently enveloped in the soothing aroma of Skanda’s signature essential oil blends of sandalwood, geranium, bergamot and lavender. So begins the exotic Skanda experience.
For designers, hobbyists and lovers of the refined and unusual alike, Skanda offers inspiration and encouragement to explore the possibilities. The sparkling gemstones invite the touch and bespoke jewelry is created before your very eyes. Skanda is truly a jewelry workshop boutique of the highest caliber.
Our one-of-a-kind, hands-on jewellery showcase provides the environment for customers to actively participate in the creation of their own unique jewellery pieces. The possibilities are endless and include everything from full custom design and co-design to a large selection of pre-made artisan jewelry pieces crafted on-site by the in-store designers.
Skanda offers intimate, creative and fun jewellery making classes for those who wish to explore their own creativity. Private parties and consultations for custom jewelry work are available for bookings upon request.
Owner Mary Wakefield, travels the world to find hand-selected treasures to make up the ever changing inventory of gemstone beads, real pearls, precious metal findings, chains and supplies that gives Skanda its fresh and vibrant appeal. Mary has developed strong relationships with her gem dealers and suppliers of silver, gold and vermeil findings and, as such, many items are often custom jewelry pieces made for Skanda and cannot be found elsewhere. In fact, it is Mary’s long-term relationships, intimate knowledge of supplier operations and her ability to hand-select key product that guarantees the quality of every jewlry piece.
