McCaskill & Company Hosts Renowned Jewelry Designer Mark Schneider
July 21, 2016 by Audrey Johnson
Whether you’re looking to give new life to an old piece of jewelry or design a piece from scratch, McCaskill & Company is giving you the chance to work with a craftsman that is as personable as he is creative. Renowned jewelry designer Mark Schneider will set up shop at McCaskill & Company August 19-20 to help you create your own wearable work of art.
Bring in grandma’s old setting and give it a modern twist or select from an extensive collection of diamonds and create your own mount. McCaskill & Company will also have expanded selections of engagement ring and jewelry mountings from some of their favorite designers during the restyle event.
Mark Schneider is an award winning third generation jeweler who specializes in contemporary designs. His Exclusive Tanzanite ring is on permanent display at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC at the National Museum of Natural History. He is one of the few living designers to have a piece of jewelry on permanent display in the Smithsonian Institution Gem and Mineral Hall.
“We at McCaskill & Company pride ourselves for offering the very best, so when we explored options for a Redesign Event, we knew that we wanted an exceptional designer,” says owner Elizabeth Campbell.
Mark’s reputation is so favorable that there is a waiting list long before his visit. Although this is McCaskill & Company’s first Redesign event, Mark does them for a handful of jewelry stores around the country. He sits down for about an hour with each guest and designs a piece of jewelry, after which the completion takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks.
“We all have jewelry that we no longer wear for a variety of reasons. Guest frequently ask what they can do with this jewelry, so we decided to do an event specifically for this purpose. They will be able to bring in one or more pieces of jewelry to create a new piece. Another option would be to purchase a gemstone from us to create a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry,” says Elizabeth.
As exciting as the Redesign event is, clients aren’t the only ones changing things up. McCaskill & Company recently refreshed their interior with the addition of a Bridal Gallery and a Rolex Gallery. The Bridal Design Gallery is specifically designed to cater to bridal couples, giving a much broader selection of engagement rings and wedding bands in a relaxed and intimate setting.
Recognized as one of the finest jewelry and watch retailers in the country, McCaskill & Company provides unique collections of fine jewelry and luxury watches with individualized client service. Owners Bill and Elizabeth Campbell have worked tirelessly to provide their clients with truly one-of-a-kind pieces for over 20 years.
