WHO WE ARE
Ottawa's Top Jeweller for Over 50 Years
Our founder, Ralph Dixon, began his jewellery career at the tender age of 14, sweeping floors and running errands for Skelton Jewellers in Montreal. By the late 50’s, although only 25 years old, he established himself as a master jeweller and went on to create stunning platinum and diamond designs for many of the firm’s famous clients, including Princess Margaret and President Eisenhower.
Of course he didn’t stop there! Continuing his success as a master jeweller he founded R.L. Dixon Ltd., a full service design studio catering to the trade, eventually opening a store front retail business as well. Ralph’s focus was always on offering the best quality jewellery at the best price and now, after 58 successful years in business we continue this tradition.
Ralph’s son, Matthew, is now at the helm and our close-knit group of jewellers have been working here a combined 97 years! We don’t have sales staff, we don’t work on commission and we pride ourselves on providing friendly, affordable and pressure-free service. The majority of Dixon’s jewellery is still hand-made, custom-made and manufactured on the premise. We like to call all of this ‘The Dixon Difference.’
