September 8th, 2017 by James L. Sweaney, CGA, FGA. GG

For the 9th year in a row, Mardon wins the Press Enterprise Reader’s Choice award! Last night, Kaye and I attended the PE Banquet & Awards Ceremony at the beautiful Riverside Convention Center. We saw familiar faces, met new winners, and the food was great! Congratulations to Gordon Bourns for the PE Community Service award– well deserved!

You’ll be able to see all the winners in the Best of Inland Empire supplement in Sunday’s Press Enterprise, and you can see it online at This will help you find the best shopping, dining, and services in the area.

We’d like to thank all of you, our loyal customers and patrons– you’ve stood by us over the years and helped us build our unique  business. Our mission is to provide outstanding merchandise and customer service to the Inland Empire– with your support, we’ll continue to grow and prosper.

Our new shop here at the Canyon Crest Towne Centre has been very well received by our customers– the store is open, comfortable and spacious, making it much easier for you to browse and shop. It’s easy to get to and has lots of free parking. Business has been very good so we’ve been able to add an employee – stop by and meet Stephanie Holcomb, our newest Mardon staff member.

While our business has based in Riverside since 1961, it’s been very gratifying to see folks coming to us from cities all over Riverside county, including Corona, Temecula, Murrieta, Lake Elsinore, Ontario, Redlands, Yucaipa, Desert Hot Springs, and others. We’re even drawing customers from San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles County, and of course, our website brings customer from all over the United States.

One of the things we’ve tried to do over the years is keep up with new technologies that help us do our work better and more efficiently. This year, we added the Ortery PhotoBench, a sophisticated system for photography and videos. Scott Christiansen, our Tech Wizard and Chief Science Officer has been very busy over the last few months –you can now see videos of our fine jewels here on the website.

Jenny Sweaney has been creating outstanding new one-of-a-kind jewels. Here’s a fabulous ring featuring a vintage carved intaglio Moonstone– a rare gemstone from bygone days.

Our Estate Department continues to grow, so you can find new pieces weekly. Our repair department is busy as always, but stands ready to repair or restore your jewelry with expertise and TLC. Our Appraisal Department stands ready to serve your needs, whether for written appraisals for insurance or estates or for verbal consultations so you’ll know the value of your jewelry. We’re open to buy most fine jewelry and precious metals – stop by for a quote.

Thanks again for the vote of confidence– we’ll keep working hard to deserve your trust and patronage. If you haven’t already been by the new shop, please visit us at Canyon Crest Towne Centre, on the center parking lot right next to the RiteAid drug store – Easy to find if you enter thru the Central Ave. entrance. We’re here Tuesday thru Saturday, 10 to 5:30. See you soon!
