Hillberg and Berk Opening in Market Mall Calgary
Regina-based jeweller, Hillberg & Berk, opened their first Calgary retail location and seventh corporately-owned store in Canada at Market Mall last week.
A select group of Calgary media personalities and myself were invited to have a special dinner at Riccardo’s Hideaway with the team from Hillberg & Berk to learn more about the company and the new location over dinner and the cocktails Riccardo’s is famous for serving.

The 939-square-foot store will feature the jeweller’s coveted Sparkle Collection, including new Electric Sunset and Navy Sparkle, the Bridal Collection and the current Autumn and Winter Palettes of the 2018 Collection, which features the new face of Hillberg & Berk, Ashley Callingbull.
Hillberg & Berk worked with design firm Cite360 to create a space that better reflects the ever-evolving needs of its customer.
“We want to offer our customers a more personal and interactive shopping experience by utilizing a styling lounge and fitting rooms where customers can bring in outfits to try with the jewellery,” says Hillberg & Berk founder and CEO, Rachel Mielke. “The store’s design was inspired by my recent trips to Europe and is what I imagine as my dream closet.”

Using only the finest semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals, Hillberg & Berk’s handcrafted pieces are designed to last throughout time. Celebrities and dignitaries such as Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Tessa Virtue, Arianna Huffington, Chloe Wilde and Justin Bieber have been spotted wearing Hillberg & Berk designs.
