Tell us about your business.

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". 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.

What makes your business stand out?

The Mark Patterson name represents the finest quality, craftsmanship, and designs available. I truly believe that an engagement ring and wedding band are not just mere jewelry purchases, but representations of a unique harmony, different for each individual. That is why we strive to provide each of our customers with completely customized rings that fit their life and their lifestyle. Our emphasis and philosophy of making each ring custom to the bride's diamond and finger is a truly different approach than other designers care to take. I find pride in executing one of my designs specifically for each individual, as not only does it provide the customer with the right product, it also brings the designer and consumer closer together.

What's the best business advice you've received?
