U.K. luxury jewellery brand Links of London will open its first free-standing Canadian location at Toronto’s CF Sherway Gardens in March of 2016. The brand currently operates six Canadian concessions, all within Holt Renfrew. Sherway will be the brand’s sixth freestanding North American store. 

Links of London was founded in 1990 and has grown to become a global luxury brand. In July of 2006, the company was sold to Greek conglomerate Folli Follie SA. The name ‘Links’ signifies the brand’s famous men’s cufflinks, though collections include accessories, jewellery, timepieces and gifts for both genders.  

Holt Renfrew features six Links of London concessions at all locations except for Holt’s Montreal store. A source at the company says that Links will also open a concession at Holt Renfrew’s Square One Mississauga location when it opens in March of 2016.

Links of London currently operates five freestanding U.S. locations, with stores in New York City (two locations), Las Vegas, Boston and Short Hills, NJ.
