This is a pretty ring set with a citrine with two small diamonds in an interesting shell design mount that was made by the firm circa 1935.

The Birks firm started as a gift shop that specialised in retail sales of jewellery, gold and silver pieces. A workshop to make jewellery was opened over the store in 1887. Henry Birks and Sons also published its first annual catalogue in 1896. The next year the company purchased Hendery and Leslie, along with its designs, equipment, and labour force. Thereafter the company founded by Birks produced its own merchandise. From then on the volume of business increased. Noticing that a large number of mail orders came from Ottawa, in 1901 the company opened a store there, its first outside Montreal. This move would be repeated many times, and before World War II the company would in effect enjoy a monopoly over the market for gold and silver articles in the country.
