Master Jeweler Mark Edwards

Created Gems is owned and run by custom jewelry designer Mark Edwards and his lovely wife Barbie. Mark has been a designer of custom jewelry for over 30 years. He comes from a long line of master craftsmen as his grandfather opened one of the first jewelry stores in downtown Detroit. For over 20 years, Mark had his own jewelry store in Farmington Hills, Michigan while his wife lived in the spotlight as a local talk show host and newspaper editor.

Wanting to make high-style jewelry more affordable, Mark moved on in his career and worked for a laboratory developing a new type of affordable manmade diamond. The result was Spektralyte – a flawless manmade diamond that matches the very best real diamonds in cut, clarity, faceting and durability. In fact, Spectralyte diamonds are so good it takes a carbon test to distinguish them from the real thing!

Mark and Barbie then settled in Florida where Mark opened his first Created Gems store in 2001, and the rest is history.
