Known for his mastery of color, Mark revolutionized the jewelry world with the debut of his Intensity collection in the early 1990’s. Brilliant sapphires in varying tones are the hallmark of these signature designs which were instantly recognized by many high-end retailers, propelling Mark Patterson to the forefront of the jewelry industry’s young designers. Participating in industry trade shows offered even more exposure and Mark Patterson was soon discovered by Tiffany, who offered to buy some of his designs leading to over 10 years of partnership between the designer and retailer. Mark Patterson has sold his designs to a number of leading jewelers around the world – Harry Winston, Van Cleef & Arpels, Asprey, David Morris, Goldsmith, and Mossaief in England. Mark Patterson continues to sell in over 80 high-end luxury retail stores throughout the US, and to private clients in the US, Europe, and the Middle East.
Always striving to reinvent himself and his designs, Mark Patterson launched his bridal collection, under the name Promise, in 2002. His successes were highly recognized throughout the jewelry industry when JQ Magazine awarded Mark as Designer of the Year in 2009.
In recent years, Mark has returned to his true love of colored stones.
