About the Vault Fine Jewellery & Repair
Originally founded in 1986; first as ‘The Genuine Gold Connection’, then as ‘Halton Hills Fine Jewellery’ as a small retail outlet selling gold chains and charms. The Vault Fine Jewellery & Repair has become Halton's premiere Jewellery store for fine, silver & gold jewellery, repairs and custom one of a kind jewellery.
In the beginning
The Genuine Gold Connection was originally located above the Credit Union on Main Street in Milton. Owned by the Schaffer family from 1986 to 1989, where it was purchased by Anita and Max Mangotich. Anita operated the store, growing the business to offer full service jewellery repairs and service, to complement to full line of fine jewellery including 14 karat gold ear piercing, custom engagement rings, wedding bands and same day ring sizing with her son Mike, a jeweller and goldsmith. Anita decided to retire in 2014, passing the business down to her son Stephen , with Mike continuing to operate the business.
With the handing down of the business, Stephen and Mike decided to re-brand the store, as The Vault and branch out into more popular brand name jewellery lines, such as 'Elle', 'Miss Mimi', ‘Secrid’, ‘Hugo Boss’, and ‘Movado’ and most recently ‘Canada Mark’ Canadian Diamonds from the Canadian ‘Ekati’ Diamond mine.
With the changes and adding the new products to complement the current line of fine jewellery, Mike and Stephen are excited and committed to the future in the heart of Milton, as did their parents over 30 years ago.
