This Canadian direct-to-consumer fine jewellery brand is going brick-and-mortar with a new IRL showroom. Opening on July 14th, the Dundas West space is every millennial's dream—think airy, inviting and open, with touches of brass, marble and pink throughout. Shoppers can pop in to try on Mejuri's pieces in a casual, relaxed setting (no glass display cases here) and purchase items on the spot, which will then be shipped the following day. There's also a special space for bridal appointments and "Fine Sessions"—aka one-on-ones with stylists who will advise on ring stacking and necklace layering.
