Created Gems in Gold and Silver has become the jewel of Siesta Key Village and the favorite store among tourists and locals alike. Owner, Mark Edwards, has been a custom-design jeweler for over thirty years and has certainly made a success of Created Gems since it’s opening in 2001. Edwards, originally from Michigan, comes from a long line of jewelers, specifically, third generation custom jewelers. Mark’s grandfather had one of the first jewelry stores in downtown Detroit. Mark, himself, owned and operated his jewelry store for over 20 years in Farmington Hills, Michigan. In 1995, Mark and his wife, Barbie, sold the store, moved to Arizona, where Mark thought he was taking early retirement. He did so, for awhile, as he watched Barbie, become the talk show host of the Valley, as well as editor of the local newspaper, as she had done in Michigan for so many years.
In the interim, Edwards was working with a laboratory to create a new type of affordable man-made permanent diamond gemstone. Within a couple of years, the Spektralyte diamond became a trademarked and patented reality. Dealing with fine diamonds, Mark wanted to create a way to match high-style with affordability. Spektrayte diamond simulants are all d-flawless lab-created gemstones with all the permanent specifications of a fine quality diamond matching it’s cut,clarity, faceting and longevity. Unlike a temporary cubic zirconia (cz), Spektralyte diamond gemstones all have lifetime guarantees and are regarded as the only permanent lab-created diamond that requires a carbon test to distinguish them from a natural stone.
At Created Gems there are hundreds of designs in rings, bracelets, earrings, slides, all in 14kt. gold or platinum finished sterling silver, all gorgeous and all discounted, as well as nautical charms, all guaranteed with the best prices.
