Award Winning Gemcutters at Mardon

February 19th, 2015 by James L. Sweaney, CGA, FGA. GG

Mardon Jewelers has a new relationship with two of America’s finest gem cutters, John Dyer and David Brackna. We met both of these award winning artists at this year’s Tuscon Gem show and were able to purchase fine examples of their work.  We’ll soon be showing these wonderful gemstones in our unique Mardon Original Jewelry.

John Dyer is a master gemstone cutter known worldwide for his artistic creations and his passion for precision. He’s won 37 AGTA Cutting Edge Awards including 9 first place prizes. John’s work is truly exciting and his taste and selection of materials are wonderful. Each of his gems is etched with his logo so you’ll know it’s a genuine Dyer gemstone. You can visit his website to see a catalog of his work.
