For the past 25 years Mark Patterson has been creating designs recognized for their creativity, innovation, and unsurpassed craftsmanship. He strives in each design to achieve a balance between beautiful stone and elegant design, accentuating the beauty of each piece. Mark Patterson is trained in traditional Swiss goldsmithing techniques which show in each of his designs – keeping traditional style and integrating new, modern touches for a truly unique and timeless look. He often keeps with a traditional structure while improving on other elements resulting in a fusion between classic and modern. This was recognized throughout the jewelry industry when JQ Magazine awarded Mark Patterson as Designer of the Year in 2009 and 2011.
Collaborating as a husband and wife team, Mark and Josette Patterson, began their career as jewelry designers 28 years ago. In 1986, they established their own jewelry design firm in the heart of New York City’s diamond district. Mark says of his wife and partner, Josette, “My training as a goldsmith/jewelry gave me the skills I needed to implement designs, but Josette had the vision. As a designer, sculptor and painter, she has an artistic eye that has helped define our creations”. Mark being born and raised in Southern California, always wanted to come back to his roots. In 2010, the designers opened their first showroom and studio in Corona Del Mar, CA, just in time to celebrate their achievement of 25 years in business.
