About Chau

Chau Lui is the co-owner of Paris Jewellers, a jewelry company founded by her mother, who immigrated to Canada from Vietnam. Arriving in Canada, the young family had hopes and dreams of a brighter future.

Additionally with their commitment to supporting their communities and charitable causes, they have raised and donated over a million dollars for various women and children’s focused charities.
