The Story of Love has been fortunate to be featured and worn by notable celebrities and stars.
Actress Sigourney Weaver purchased our incredible Coliseum Cuff; a dazzling and eye-catching piece. Crafted with stunning Swarovski crystals, we were thrilled to receive the following image of the talented actor in our unique and glamorous bracelet.
Pop singer and actress Hilary Duff stopped by our boutique while filming Cheaper By The Dozen 2 in Canada. Below is a sweet message we received from some of her young fans who were able to interact with Hilary Duff while she shopped for some new jewels in store.
Thank you very much for letting Siobhan and I have the opportunity to meet Hilary Duff. Also thanks for inviting us in the first place and letting us stay in your store. We both appreciate it so much. It was so cool seeing her shoot her film, well it’s all thanks to you! Thanks a bunch! - Tara R
We had the pleasure of meeting Natalie Cole while set up at a Yorkville street festival. Dressed casually with no makeup and in a headscarf, Natalie purchased a few items from our booth and ordered additional custom jewels to be delivered to her hotel.
English-American actress Rebecca Hall was photographed wearing our layered and long, gold tiger-eye, necklace. We love how she paired the piece with a dark and relaxed pea coat. So fashionable!
Some other notable celebrities we’ve created pieces for include Cate Blanchett, Terrence Howard, Mike Weir, Marina Sitiris, Joan Collins, Olympian Gabby Daleman, and Forrest Whitaker - who purchased a stunning pair of multi-coloured chandelier earrings for his wife.

Teresa (owner) and Greg made me feel welcome the second I walked through the door. Both are friendly and exemplify what "customer service" is. The store is beautifully laid out with various accessories and the most stunning jewelry pieces designed and made by Teresa. All the pieces are crafted with high quality crystals and stones.
I was looking for earrings to match a necklace/bracelet set and I had been searching for weeks in high-end retailers with no success. I had a photo with me and Teresa walked me through her selections and really took her time with me. She even customized the earrings for me (silver to gold hooks) in minutes.
As a customer, I have never felt so "attended to" and I highly recommend The Story of Love Boutique if you are looking for any kind of statement or everyday type pieces.
