    “I needed a 3-tier tier pearl necklace restrung and I brought it to Mark's Jewelers. Although it is costume jewelry, it has much sentimental value to my wife. I wasn't sure if they would work on costume jewelry oh, but they did! They did a fantastic job! The drop-off and pick-up experience was terrific! Everyone was so professional. I highly recommend this place! I will be back!”
