The Secret Sale at Dyrberg/Kern...Shhh

The Jocosa SG pink enamel and gold pendant speaks the truth of love that "to not dare is to have already lost," while the Majesta C SS purple pendant serves as a reminder of confidence both from the Identity collection at Dyrberg / Kern.

Do you love a sale? How about a sale that is unknown unless by chance you happen to cross paths with that particular designer boutique.

Are you looking for something classic with European grace to get your lover for Valentine’s Day?

Well today I was let in on a little secret. Today, I met Seéve Sandberg owner of Dyrberg/Kern, a designer line of jewelry and accessories for  men and women out of Copenhagen, Denmark and she told me that for this week only her entire store inventory is half price.

Yes, that includes the new collection as well as the older pieces, both men's and women's jewelry as well as watches, sunglasses and accessories – literally everything.

Behind the brand Dyrberg/Kern are the founders and designers for the company Gitte Dyrberg and Henning Kern, who create two signature collections each year using traditional Scandinavian designs infused with current trends.

By intertwining a variety of elements including lead-free brass, stainless steel, freshwater pearls, leather, Swarovski elements and precious stones Dyrberg / Kern create sharp and ever contemporary pieces that never go out of style.

If you’ve ever wondered where CTV’s anchor Colleen Christie gets her beautiful jewels from, well now you know. The company is renowned throughout both Europe and Asia, with Vancouverites provided exclusivity, as Seéve’s boutique is the only store in all North America.

I asked Seéve about the sale to which she said “It’s all 50 percent off, men’s jewelry, women’s and the new collection, everything. All the sunglasses and time pieces are half price this week until the 7th.

Both lively and gracious Seéve is down to Earth, not afraid to mix high end attire with casual wear, believing that “it’s how you wear it that matters.She is both personable and honest like the accessories and jewelry she represents.

This is a great chance to get your loved one something classic for Valentine's. So, unless you've read this or walk in you'll miss out. It isn’t advertised, meaning only those in the know, know and now you do. Happy Valentine's Day and happy shopping.

Dyrberg / Kern is located at 3030 Granville Street. The phone number is (604) 730-5001.The 50 percent off store wide sale is until the 7th of February 2010.
