BROCKVILLE – Whether it is the creation of a stunning new custom ring or restructuring an heirloom, jewellery design is a passion for Carol and Chris Palko.
The couple established Palko Jewellery Design 22 years ago and today they have a 700-plus client list and continue to grow their business.
“We love our work and creating your personal ‘Moment in Time’ jewellery is what we strive to do,” says Chris, a goldsmith and designer with 40 years of experience.
“There is a story behind every piece, its heritage and its legacy,” says Carol, a gemologist and consultant. They view jewellery as art, and work hard to give their clients unforgettable pieces.
Their services include jewellery design, from conception to finished product, fine enameling, appraisals and estate evaluations, including preparation of estate items. A niche is breathing new life into old treasures with a jewellery re-style. For example, transforming a bracelet into earrings using the same valuable gems. It is a growing trend to have estate jewellery repurposed and made wearable. Palko also does repair work and purchases old gold.
One client writes: “They have turned jewellery visions into precious family treasures” with their creativity.
“In the end, people are really happy with what we do,” says Chris. He uses a 3D Computer Assisted Design system in his work. A wax model is then created, from which the piece is then cast and the gems added.
Another client sums it up perfectly: “Carol and Chris offer a winning combination of sincere customer service and incomparable artistry. I highly recommend them to anyone wanting a piece of jewellery they can treasure.”
