What Makes Mark Loren Designs a Good Neighbor…

Mark Loren has devoted a lifetime to the craft of jewelry-making. Today, he works out of his Fort Myers, Florida studio, where you can shop his gallery of outstanding work. However, Mark was born and raised in Chicago, and that’s where he began his career. He attended Gem City College in Quincy, Illinois, studying advanced jewelry design, watchmaking, and jewelry repair. Then, after repairing watches for Bulova Watch Co., Mark began a jewelry apprenticeship with Frederick Prete Custom Goldsmiths in Highland Park. Ultimately, fine jewelry stores across the Chicago area carried his work. In 1982, Mark relocated to Fort Myers, where he started a small trade shop.

After nearly 40 years in business, Mark has gained international acclaim and a roster of local and national celebrity clients. He also received numerous awards in his industry, and he has been a guest speaker at national jewelry shows and conferences. And Mark Loren Designs has played host to fellow jewelers interested in seeing Mark’s unique approach to production and design.

Mark is an active and engaged member of his community and loves donating his time and treasures to causes across the region. He also shares his expertise locally and nationally, speaking on topics such as securing and caring for your jewelry, changes in the industry, and much more.

  1. We highly recommend Mark Loren Designs. My husband and I have had some of our family jewelry repaired and updated and we are pleased to share our experience with the full process. Communication throughout the repair was wonderful.
