The Golden Tulip is the realization of a long held vision by its founders Terry and Julia Bursey George who bring with them over 35 years experience in the jewellery trade.
Terry, a master goldsmith, began his apprenticeship at the young age of 15 in his hometown of London, England. There he worked for some seven years in Hatton Gardens, the hub of London’s busy jewellery district alongside some ...of the best jewelers in the trade, honing the skills necessary to become proficient in his craft.
Things took an unexpected turn when he met his wife Julia in Spain and they returned to her native Newfoundland to live. Terry got his first taste of the Canadian jewellery business while working for many years with the well established Birks & Sons. With Julia’s background in art and graphic design it wasn’t long before they were designing and making jewellery of their own.
With Terry’s expertise and Julia’s flair for design, it was always their intention to open something quite “out of the ordinary” when compared to most commercial jewellery stores. They wanted to offer their customer the kind of jewellery usually found only when traveling abroad or in the pages of magazines..
With an accent on quality, craftsmanship, and design, The Golden Tulip carries everything from the finest diamond jewellery to those affordable fun pieces that you'll purchase just because they were “calling your name!”
It is their philosophy that jewellery is an extension of the personality – a kind of wearable art form meant to be used and enjoyed. With this in mind The Golden Tulip would like to extend an open invitation to come in, browse and enjoy!
