M.K. Winston Jewelers offers couples the unique opportunity to meet and share ideas directly with the designer and jeweler himself. They are one of the few jewelers who do not contract out their work to other people to manufacture; rather, they share ideas directly between their clients and the person who will craft your jewelry from start to finish. Doing this enables them to deliver exactly the finished product that you were dreaming of, rather than details you wanted being lost in translation. Since their jeweler is also the designer, the in-house jewelry is high quality, yet at prices you can feel good about because they have cut out the middleman. They offer a lifetime maintenance guarantee on all pieces at no additional cost, as well as interest-free financing. For more information, call (978) 462-2768 or visit
