McCaskill & Company Showcases Unique Designs
July 6, 2015 by Audrey Johnson
When you walk through the double doors at McCaskill & Company the first word that comes to mind is elegance. The gallery’s open floor plan is dotted with glass cases encapsulating fine gemstones and precious metals with the lighting aimed just right to make them sparkle. Fresh cut flowers bring the relaxed seating area in front of the fireplace to life while large pewter-framed mirrors afford frequent glimpses of your reflection adorned with fine jewels.
But it’s not the jewels or the shine that keeps owner Elizabeth Campbell engaged. It’s the people. “You’re becoming a part of their lives at their happiest times, during births, weddings and anniversaries,” she said. “When you become a part of their most intimate moments they become like family.”
Elizabeth and her husband Bill have been serving the South Walton and Destin areas for over 21 years. “Bill is the most passionate person about jewelry that I know,” said Elizabeth. McCaskill & Company’s central location in Miramar Beach features some of the top jewelry designers in the industry, and the Campbells work tirelessly to provide their clients with truly one-of-a-kind pieces. The couple attends four trade shows per year in Las Vegas (Couture, Luxury, JCK and AGTA) and they just returned with unique additions to some of their clients’ favorite collections.
Pamela Froman’s handmade pieces feature textured rose, white, green and yellow gold crushed together using a hand-hammering technique that gives her jewelry a whimsical flow. Pamela’s newest pieces at McCaskill & Company feature boulder opal and rutilated quartz that perfectly compliment her crushed gold settings by adding both color and depth to the designs.
Erica Courtney’s regal designs are famous among celebrities with good reason. Erica travels the world in search of the perfect stones, even visiting mines in Sri Lanka to hand select pieces for her collection. In addition to being known for incredible feminine design, Erica has become a leader in the industry for her use of exotic and interesting gemstones including Paraiba tourmaline, Csarite and spessartite garnet. The next Erica Courtney Personal Appearance and Show is scheduled for July 17-18 from 10 am-5:30 pm.
If Gustav Klimt were a jewelry designer, I imagine his pieces would look something like the work of Alex Sepkus. The designer’s signature 18 karat yellow gold handmade pieces are carved with geometric shapes and dotted with fine gemstones, leaving you mesmerized. Alex’s statement pieces give an air of sophistication that make his fine jewelry suitable for both special evenings and everyday wear.
One of McCaskill & Company’s newer collections, Plevé, has been showcased in the gallery for just over a year now. The collection’s diamond mosaics feature loose stones polished into different shapes and set within the piece using a patented design that’s free of metal settings. Artists set each diamond piece by piece, making the finished product as unique as the diamonds themselves.
In addition to a unique collection of jewelry designs, McCaskill & Company houses a collection of fine watches and employs an in house watch maker who is Rolex certified. Keep an eye out for the watch of the moment made by Shinola, a company that’s bringing work back to America by building their watches in Detroit using Swiss parts.
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. The gallery is located at 13390 Highway 98 West in Miramar Beach. For inquiries, please call (850) 650 – 2262 or visit www.mccaskillandcompany.com.
