Founders Series featuring Violette Boutique

Welcome to the Founders Series where we chat with a few of our favorite mama entrepreneurs who have created amazing brands that we find truly inspiring. In this series, you will get the inside scoop on how these women started their companies, manage work-life balance as a busy mom, stay creative and so much more. We hope you follow along and come to love these mamas and brands as much as we do.  

About Violette Boutique:

We opened Violette Boutique on a sunny afternoon in October of 2005. Determined to supply the city of Victoria, British Columbia with the finest in fashion jewelry, accessories, and little luxuries an institution was born. 

With our backgrounds in fashion retail my mum and I set out to provide a unique experience for our customers from start to finish with upbeat and knowledgeable staff (fondly referred to as the Violette Gems), stunning displays, and most importantly Canadian-made products with an emphasis on quality and exclusivity. 

 From this Violette has grown (from a tiny 700 square-foot shop) to our current location (at more than twice the size of our original home) that features some of the top names in independent jewelry design. While offering a selection of recognizable brands our focus remains on Canadian-made products and represents a variety of locally based jewelry designers such as Leah Alexandra and Pyrrha, with a few other tiny treasures thrown in for good measure.

We adore this small, female founded business in Victoria, British Columbia! We are all about small, dainty gold jewelry and they have the best pieces. They also carry great hair accessories and everyday bags. Make sure to head to our stories to learn more about their founder and her story.
