Mark Lash Fine Jewelry - Holiday Launch

Mark Lash Fine Jewelry Toronto

Mark Lash designs include engagement rings, statement-making runway collections as well as affordable lifestyle pieces for both men and women. 
When you are invited to sip champagne and try on beautiful jewelry by a designer who has dressed Drake, Freida Pinto and Michael Buble (to name a few) - you don't say no! So, this is why last week I played dress up while sipping bubbly at the holiday launch for Mark Lash Fine Jewelry

Mark Lash, a Toronto jeweler - has been creating fine jewelry using a variety of metals and gemstones (and gorgeous diamonds - hello!) for over 25 years. With his design and production studio housed in his store location in Richmond Hill, he also has a second location here in Toronto at 480 Eglinton Ave W., which is where I went last week. This store is beautiful and it's no wonder it won an ARIDO Award this year for it's exceptional interior design

Mark Lash has a keen eye, incredible talent, and a determination that has driven his passion to be the successful business it is today. One of the interesting pieces of information I found out last week was that Mark Lash is renowned for his ability to create one of a kind custom pieces. You can work with him and his team directly to create a custom, one of a kind piece for yourself or a loved one within your budget. They will create sketches as well as wax molds to show you the design process and give you a better idea of what the final piece will look like. 


With the holidays upon us, this is an amazing gift idea!

Mark Lash also created the Hope Knot icon to raise funds and awareness for the Women's Brain Health Initiative. The Hope Knot icon was created to raise awareness and escalate concern over the unchecked growth of dementia and other aging brain diseases in women.  
The Design by MARK LASH:
Combating women’s brain disorders is a cause close to my heart. I have first-hand experience of the devastating impact on family and friends who have been afflicted and affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. These high functioning, independent and loving individuals became a mere shadow of themselves.
My inspiration for the Hope-Knot design came from the complexity and interconnectivity of the brain itself. I wanted to show the deterioration of the brain but I also wanted to keep the strength and beauty of the person intact.
The Hope-Knot is a contemporary interpretation of the human brain. The open space represents how disease destroys a healthy brain while the intertwining aspect of the design represents how messages become scrambled as the disease progresses.
The Hope-Knot can be worn by men and women to remind us all of the women in our lives – our mother, daughter, sister, partner or best friend – and how much we depend on their memories and insights.
- Mark Lash, Women’s Brain Health Hope-Knot Designer
