Handcrafted Pendant

"I was referred to Mark and he was nothing short of all the amazing things I was told about his passion and quality of work. He maintains a beautiful collection of stones and can source the right metals to fabricate unique pieces. He designed a gorgeous pendant and upon completion go the model he was able to come up with a beautiful design for the back, taking into account the things I spoke about with respect to my desired style of jewelry. He also sized and restored a beautiful vintage ring that looked better than it did when I purchased it. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. His passion is infectious and his eye for designing beautiful pieces is truly impressive."

"I am so grateful my husband found Mark to design my 10 year anniversary ring. He was able to listen to my abstract vision and turn it into a gorgeous and unique ring I will treasure for life. We only had to meet once to go over ideas and then a second time to see the wax mold and make minor adjustments.  Mark is incredibly creative and talented and I couldn't have picked a better artist to create my ring. I am thrilled with how it turned out and proud to wear it! His pricing was fair and his turnaround time was incredibly fast. We loved working with Mark and highly recommend him to anyone looking to create a one of a kind piece and have a special experience doing it. "

"I can't say enough about how great my experience was working with Mark on my now-fiance's custom engagement ring. It was absolutely one of the best overall shopping experiences of my life. I went into the process expecting it to be stressful and nerve-racking, but after an initial one hour meeting with Mark those feelings turned to pure excitement over the amazing ring he designed. I came to him with a vague idea of what I wanted and he was able to draw multiple sketches, make suggestions, and listen to my feedback to create something that was well beyond my expectations (and that my fiance loves). In addition, the value was great. Mark gave me a cost estimate during our first meeting and stuck to it throughout the entire process, even when he later suggested improvements that should have increased the cost. In the end I feel like I paid less than I would have from a big box jewelry store and instead got something that is one of a kind and expertly crafted."

One of a Kind

"My husband came to your store looking for a anniversary ring. He said he was sweating it because he wanted it just right. Mark at Jewelry by Design lead him in the right direction. He created a one of a kind ring incorporating my engagement ring. I love, love it! The new ring has lots of bling but, it does not look gaudy on my small finger. It is both beautiful and unique. Nailed it. We will be recommending this shop for sure.!"

Amazingly Custom!

"As newly weds without a plan, we found Jewelry by Design on a whim and it was our first stop in searching for wedding rings. We didn’t need to go anywhere else. I absolutely ADORE Mark. From the moment we walked in, you can see the artistic inspiration in the display cases, in the decor of the shop, and in the pictures he has displayed of the work done by Jewelry by Design. We had such an amazing experience. My husband loves the ocean, and all things underwater, while I needed something to wear under gloves at work without tear. We discussed preferred gems, ideas on design types, and Mark was very excited to work on a design that showcased the both of us. He was amazingly verbal, after we spoke in person, by texting regular updates and showing pictures of progress. I am insanely happy with the results. The craftsmanship involved is insane. Everything is done by hand and in shop, and our rings were so personalized to the very end! Jewelry by Design did not disappoint, and working with Mark was a breeze. "
