Silver, gold, and precious gems of all colours
With great attention to detail, and a boundless passion for jewelry, Aaron Maya creates pieces that are anything but ordinary. Behind every ring, every necklace, and every bracelet is Aaron's passion for a stone or a metal. His inspiration guides the design while technique and process always remain important – and may even dictate the final outcome.
Aaron is continually seeking to develop new processes that set him apart from other designers. His research and process is intrinsically linked to every step of the work. That’s why each piece is unique, with its own story to tell.
Original and extraordinary since 2002
With Agent Tonic, we appreciate the human touch and strive for beauty not uniform perfection when it comes to our craftsmanship. The rings have a slightly hammered texture and house natural gems that are brilliantly displayed. The necklaces include molded elements – motifs of fish, butterflies wings, spirals and more. Many necklaces are formed with chains of unusual and original links, this adds the charm and the unexpected. The earrings are dripping with natural stones and cast silver in various shapes that serve as settings for quartz, mother-of-pearl, amethyst, citrine, and other exquisite stones.
In addition to Aaron's own work, Argent Tonic sells jewelry by Mexican designer Teresa Gonzalez (TEGO) that is just as original, and stands out for its more sleek, clean and feminine style.
Aaron Maya: from Mexico to Laurier Avenue West
The journey of a dynamic and prolific designer whose creations have captivated
buyers for 16 years.
It almost sounds too perfect – a jewelry designer from Mexico with the family name Maya. Yet it's true, for Aaron Maya, owner of Argent Tonic boutique. He has had a life journey that is just as original as the treasures he creates.
Born in Mexico, Aaron Maya has been established in Montreal, Quebec for many years now. In 2002, he opened Argent Tonic on the chic Laurier Avenue West in the heart of Montreal's shopping district. Since then, the brand's reputation has done nothing but grow and shine. Aaron likes to receive his clients and guests in a warm and welcoming environment, leaving them the time to revel in his creations.
For each collection, he takes his inspiration from semi-precious stones, silver, gold, and other materials that inspire him. Each collection offers new models, always in a limited run or a one-of-a kind piece, always selling briskly. Each of these stunning creations carries a glint of warm Mexican sunlight and an exuberant glow that sets it apart.
