Cheers to our Canadian winters...
Not sure what to get that special someone for the holidays? How about something no one else will have?!! In just three simple steps, we can create a one-of-a-kind piece to your heart's desire.
Step 1: Who is this gift for and what do they like? Think of their favourite colours, their style and their hobbies. For example a girlie-giel who adores pink and ballet or pehaps a gothic-chic friend who has a fascination for skulls and only wears black.
Step 2: Now browse our site and see what inspires you. Perhaps you see a necklace or lariat that you think your special someone would love, but the colours and not what you have in mind for them...this brings us to the next step.
Step 3: Now selecet the colours you would like and shoot us an email with 'custom order' as the subject.
We hope to help make your holiday season stress-free, fun and filled with love!
Our magic elves are coming up with a Christmas wish list just for you! Meanwhile here's a little holiday inspiration to assist you in spreading that holiday cheer. This holiday season feel the warmth, love and embrace your loved ones.

On 21st November 2013, as the city experienced chilly winds, somewhere in the heart of downtown Toronto, fashionistas and the talented jewellery designer Shah Emily Noaman dreamed up the perfect summer paradise. Everleigh, located at 580 King Street West, was adorned with tropical floral decore, courtesy of Kaas Floral Decor; reminiscent of the beautiful natural life in Costa Rica and was converted into a fashion haven for a fundraiser that celebrated the launch of 3SHAHS' Spring Summer 2014 collection, Pura Vida Resort.

Hosted by the beautiful Claudia Maria Opdenkelder and made possible by the dedication and hardwork of 3Shahs' team and volunteers, the evening was a success and all for a great cause! The proceeds from the fundraiser were donated to [free-them], a Canadian non profit that raises a voice and funds against human slavery here in Toronto and abroad.

As the attendees waited patiently for the preview of 3SHAHS' latest collection, they were treated to an energetic and vibrant salsa dance performance by the talented dancers from the Baila Boogaloo Dance Company. Some of the adventurous guests even took part in the festivities and danced to their heart's content!
While the dancing and festivities continued, somewhere a team of stylists worked hand in hand with Shah Emily Noaman to work their magic on the gorgeous models, pairing Shah's creations with colourful and playful outfits.
Once ready, the models showcased a jewellery collection that was vibrant, warm and full of life. Shah's message behind this collection was simple: "Pura Vida...lead a simple, grateful, happy and harmonious life with all that you have."

This year, at , many designers emphasized the trend of monochromatic colours in different textures. This included white on white on white, as seen in David Dixon's show and grey on grey on grey portrayed at Travis Taddeo's show.
With the warm weather behind us, many people transform their colourful clothing palettes to a more neutral one for the fall/winter season. A staple and favourite shade of ours is black. We love layering different textures of black - from woolen knits to matted leather. This looks is completed brilliantly with our lariat & skull earrings. A pop of polished onyx, morocco red rubber to ginger seed beads, this lariat can be worn in three different styles, for how-to check out our .

From time immemorial, semi precious stones have held a special place in every fashionista's eyes and heart. believed to have special properties, they not only heal but may also help a damsel to find the man of her dreams. Below is a list of some of our favorites for the fall that will help ward off an evil eye and invite many more dazzled stares.
Popularized in the Baltic regions, amber has been worn for ages by hunters for safe and abundant hunting trips. Fit for royalty, it was also found in Tutankhamen's tomb and is believed to balance emotions and rid one of their fears. Wear it anyway you like and live life courageously.
Mesmerizing the viewer with its rich green colour, malachite leaves no doubt in its importance as a jewel. Looking at a beautifully carved piece of malachite can take you on a spiritual journey, filling you with a sense of peace and serenity. Set in ornate jewellery, the stone was also used by ancient Egyptians as eyeshadow in its powdered form and is known to have healing powers.
Bright and strong coloured like a tiger, this stone has extremely powerful protective abilities. Worn in a necklace, Tiger's eye aids in balancing one's emotions. They are widely used in feng shui practices and their golden brown colour makes them an exquisite jewel to be had!
At 3Shahs we offer customized designs, so pick your favourite and set your style in stone.
