Vivah Jewellry traces its origins back to 1972, when founder Zell Goodbaum began wholesale trading sparkly gems and fashion jewellery back and forth between Canada and his home in India. During his travels, he met self-taught gold- and silversmith Vivah Goldberg, who dazzled Zell with her masterful stone carving, intuitive eye for design, and impressive collection of golden celebrity busts. The Goodbaum-Goldberg alliance came into full fruition in 1985 with the opening of Vivah Jewellery's first location, a partnership that combined Vivah's artistry and technical skill with Zell's business savvy and experience.
Today, each of Vivah Jewellery's locations lures passersby who are easily distracted by shiny objects with more than 8,000 pieces of sterling silver, milky pearl, and precious stones. Appendages become beacons for positive attention when wearing the shop's uncommon, original trinkets, which have included the classic, turn-of-the-century-style art-nouveau crystal pavé watch and the contemporary crystal leaf designer headband.
Though it looks like a simple bicycle affixed to a canopy-covered and cushioned seat, Niagara Pedicab's bright blue conveyance has the power to ferry visitors along the roads intersecting the natural wonders surrounding Niagara Falls. Local guides—many of whom are also historians—pedal their passengers to see all three waterfalls from Goat Island, Luna Island, Terrapin Point, and Three Sisters Island, revealing area history through narration along the way. On each tour, drivers can photograph their passengers standing in front of their favorite vistas and pause to let them disembark and explore on their own, allowing guests to experience scenery off the path without having to be kidnapped by a passing tree. Drivers also transport passengers to a range of local attractions including the Niagara Aquarium and Cave of the Winds, and usher them to and from events such as weddings and river tours. When not leading area tours, guides may also recommend local restaurants and spots to view the Falls' nighttime illuminations.
