NYC-based luxury jeweller Verdura opened its first Canadian store location yesterday in Toronto. It's a shop-in-store located within Mindham Fine Jewellery at 37 Hazelton Avenue in Toronto's affluent Yorkville area.

Later this month, the company will unveil Coco Chanel's original early-1930's Maltese Cross cuffs, created by Verdura. It will be available at the Toronto store. 

The Mindham Fine Jewellery store occupies a former home and is across the street from Hazelton Lanes, a shopping centre that will see an expansion and renovation to include more luxury retailers. The store's owner, Miles Mindham, is also a jewellery designer. The store includes his designs as well as designer timepieces by the likes of Franck Muller and Bedat & Co.

Verdura operates one retail location in Manhattan, and is distributed through selected retailers including Neiman Marcus.
