Custom Engagement Ring

Let’s be honest here, when you are dedicating a piece of jewelry to mark a once in a lifetime moment, you want that piece of jewelry to be just as special and important as the moment itself. That is what Mark does magnificently. Mark took that and ran with it in the design of my engagement ring. He added so many special details I would have never thought to add. Mark is not only a master of his trade in designing timeless pieces of jewelry but he’s also so creative, honest, detailed and fun to talk to. Mark is our jewelry guy.

Custom Wedding Band / Ring

I was looking get a new wedding ring for my 10th wedding anniversary and had been searching various stores for a while, but couldn't really find a ring that I liked nor really fit my personality. We sat down with Mark and I tried to explain what I was looking for. Mark was able to come up with an incredible design that I absolutely love...a design that fit exactly what I was looking for. It's quietly masculine. It's subtle yet intricate. The craftsmanship and attention to detail are extraordinary. It truly is unique and I love it. Mark's aim is to make you happy and provide you with a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry that you will enjoy for the rest of your life. The dedication to his craft shows.

Jewelry Repair

We recently went to Jewelry By Design to see if my mother's severely damaged opal and gold ring could be restored. To our surprise Mark said he could indeed restore the ring. Today we went to pick it up and it was truly amazing how great it looks! My mother said it looks better than it ever did before. I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for restoration or original jewelry creation and design at a very reasonable cost. P.S. - he also repaired a broken post on some pearl earrings.
