Thank you to everyone who voted!

Ninety-five percent of what Mark Michael Diamond Designs sells is designed and manufactured on site. ‘This allows us to fill our showcases with a variety of completely unique designs that simply can’t be seen anywhere else in the Twin Cities,’ says owner Mark Lauer. While they create the finest in materials and craftsmanship, they aren’t as expensive as people expect. And, when customers reuse their own gold and stones, allowing Lauer to create a new design, he says the savings increase.
