When I went into Frederic Owen Fine Jewelry on a recommendation I did not realize what a treat I was in for. Not only did Mark (owner and jewelry designer) and his wife make my husband and I feel welcome and comfortable, but he designed and crafted a ring that exceeded my expectations. I was not only impressed with the shop's inventory, but his ability to take family stones of sentimental value and create something truly beautiful. Highly recommend.

Mark and Kristin made our engagement a memorable experience by creating a beautiful, custom-made ring at a reasonable cost! We would absolutely recommend anyone to them and plan on being a return customer!

Custom design completed with love- made to honor all my children and my faith. Thank you for doing such a fantastic job with such a delicate touch.

Frederic Owen is a perfect fit for the Village of Williamsville! From our first experience in the store with Kristin, where we were welcomed like lifelong customers, to the time we were given to look at some of Mark's beautiful creations, to the repair on a broken watch we bought at a different store, we love this place and know that it will be around for a long time. We especially love the fact that they can take old jewelry and turn it into something new. Anne Marie and I will be going through her old jewelry this weekend and heading back to see what sort of magic Mark can work!

I helped my hubby by looking for a BD gift for myself! I found Frederic Owen Fine Jewelry. Mark and his wife helped me choose an over the head necklace that is easy for me to put on. They strung a beautiful quartz necklace that is perfect. I and sure that I will return........

I happened into Frederic Owen Jewelry during a village event a couple of months ago when it had recently opened. While looking around at the beautiful jewelry they have in the store, I started talking to the owners of the store, Kristin and Mark. Although the store was busy, they were attentive and incredibly kind. I purchased a pair of earrings and a ring that night, both of which I absolutely love and have worn extensively since then. Each piece is designed by Mark and one of a kind. A few weeks later, they contacted me letting me know that they’d gotten a stone that matched the earrings I’d bought and wondering if I’d like to see the necklace they were planning to make out of it. Of course, I said yes and went into the store and also bought the necklace. I love all of the pieces I’ve gotten so far, but more importantly I’ve been impressed every time I’ve been in there with the professionalism, thoughtfulness, and personal attention of Kristin and Mark. Buying jewelry from someone is an act of trust, and I completely trust them to be honest and fair even based on the short time that I’ve known them. I highly recommend Frederic Owen Jewelry and plan to go there for any of my jewelry needs in the future.

Kristin and Mark were able to custom make my mommy bracelet to my liking and then some. Between the two they were able to bring style and design ideas that helped make my jewelry a one of a kind piece that I will cherish forever! I will continue to visit them for any of my jewelry needs!

Just under a month before my wedding, when I had almost given up hope on finding the perfect wedding band to match my unique engagement ring, Frederic Owen saved the day!! I had tried many pre-made rings, and also went to see the "custom" matching band designed by the folks the engagement ring was purchased from, and I was becoming very frustrated and disappointed. I was ready to settle. Then I spoke with Mark and Kristen, and they made me believe I could do better, and at a very reasonable price!!! They took the time to explain what it would look like, and my options. I took the leap and I could not be happier with my choice. Their designs are truly art, and every piece in that store is unique and beautiful. I will be back for gifts and any other custom jewelry needs I have in the future.

This place is Perfect! I took my girlfriend into the store and was warmly greeted by the husband and wife who own the store. They were extremely helpful, courteous and not intrusive at all. My shopping experience was comfortable and pleasant. We ended up buying these beautiful aquamarine earning studs which they helped us pick out. They match my girlfriends complexion perfectly. The owner came out and explained to me each step it took to make these specific earrings which was quite nice because we now knew how much they meant to them. We now had a story and understand all of the work and effort that went into making these beautiful earrings for us. I loved this store and the owners attention to detail so much. I will be bringing in some of my families old jewelry to have them re-furbish, re-structure and brought back to life for us. Frederic Owen was perfect and I give them 5 Stars!!!

Charles Pouliot

Outstanding experience working with both Mark and Kristin to purchase an engagement ring for my (then) girlfriend, now fiance. I walked in on recommendation from a friend, and was warmly welcomed (and even offered bottled water) while I looked around.

I appreciated their knowledgeable and unassertive approach to the shopping experience. They both have a long and successful history in the jewelry business and it was a pleasure to get to know both of them during my three visits to their store.

They worked very conscientiously with me to design a beautiful ring and made no attempts to up-sell me on larger more expensive diamonds. I was on a very quick timeline to have the finished product in hand, and they were very diligent in speeding up the process with their manufacturing facility in Manhattan.

Mark was honest in warning me that a slight chance of weather delays may stall the shipping process. I had my proposal date set for five days after we sent everything to NYC to be cast, set and shipped back. Although the weather did cause a delay with shipping, Mark and Kristin were extremely helpful in ensuring that I would have the ring in-time (Mark even met me in Rochester to deliver the ring while I was traveling for work so that I could propose on time!)

My fiance and I look forward to visiting Frederic Owen Fine Jewelry in the spring to shop for and purchase our wedding bands. Thank you Mark and Kristin for pulling everything together!

When our 10th wedding anniversary came around, my husband took me to Frederic Owen's. The owners, Mark and Kristin, are warm and exceptionally knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable right away. After asking about our preferences and answering many questions, they helped us to choose the perfect stone and ring setting. I'm thrilled to say that I now enjoy a beautiful ring that my husband and I "created" together. And I especially love that it is totally unique to me! Thank you, Mark and Kristin, for making us such a special ring to mark our anniversary.

Carol McC

The experience that I have had with Frederic Owen has been impeccable. I have found Mark and Kristen to be very knowledgeable, informative and dedicated to meeting the unique needs of the customer. They have been more than accommodating with creating timeless pieces that I will one day pass down to my daughter. I have found a family jeweler that I know I can trust and count on.

Rachel Duchon

I bought a pair of sterling dangle earrings at Frederic Owen Fine Jewelry. I wear them often and get lots of compliments. They are simple, elegant and comfortable to wear all day.

The owners design and manufacture their own jewelry. Their creations are unique and lovely. If you're in the area, stop in and meet them and take a look around at their beautiful displays.

And, luckily for me, I was one of the winners of a gift basket during their Grand Opening celebration!

Kathleen Alfano

I have been going to the same jeweler for 5 years- everyone knows how important trust is with jewelers! The problem was that I wasn't drawn to their collections anymore and their opinion in design was somewhat dated. On a whim I went into Frederic Owen Fine Jewelry and was incredibly impressed and even inspired! Mark spent time talking with me and answering a number of questions that I have had on different metals. I have been wanting to customize a ring for my husband for years but never felt confident to make the move. The owners Mark and Kristin worked with me on the design and absolutely educated me as well as offered a modern creative eye. I was thrilled with the ring and my husband loved it. I will definitely be returning to Frederic Owen!

Kimberly Horning

Once upon a blustery blizzard day, I stopped at Frederic Owen Fine Jewelry Boutique, to purchase a very special sentimental gift. This gift would commemorate my reconciliation with my sister, after nearly a decade of unrest.

I was emotional and uncertain about what I wanted to purchase. I had no idea what I was looking for! That's when I met Kristin; the co owner; and my sales representative. She was delightful, wise, patient and very cordial! She made my decision fun and easy! As soon as I said 'I wanted something unique', Kristin suddenly changed gears and showed me a beautiful gemstone necklace cut and artistically designed by her husband, Mark. The necklace was truly stunning and unique!

After my purchase, Kristen carefully wrapped my gift with golden paper and a beautiful fabric bow! Kristen and her husband were so much more than I expected! They know, love, and believe in what they are doing. My sister and I met a few days later, ...we hugged, laughed, and cried all at once! She loved her necklace too!

If you're still reading this review; it's not a coincident. Life is short; and you do not know how long God will give us to be with our family and friends. You need to make the choice to forgive and forget. Then; you can stop by Frederic Owen's Fine Jewelry Boutique to 'seal the deal'!

My wife had lost her wedding band and needless to say I was eager to get another one on her finger. I met Mark and Kristin a short time after this and in conversation learned they owned a jewelry store and manufactured custom pieces, the timing couldn't have been more perfect. Lucky for me I had the receipt for the wedding band so I was able to describe to Mark and Kristin what I was looking for. After more discussion, I decided I wanted two identical bands, one to go on either side of her engagement ring and then have all three soldered together, they said that wouldn't be a problem. I gave them the green light to proceed with the project and in only a matter of ~ two weeks I had all three bands soldered and back on her finger. I was more than pleased with the quality of work and the speed with which the project was finished...it looks perfect!! I would highly recommend speaking with them for your jewelry wants or needs.

Chris S

My experience here was wonderful! Kristin and her husband couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating. We bought my sister a lovely opaque stone bracelet for Christmas (which she loved). The packaging/presentation was gorgeous. We will definitely be shopping there again. Thanks so much for your help in choosing the perfect present!!

Kathy K

My fiance and I had a great experience designing a custom engagement ring with Kristin and Mark! They were very responsive and receptive to our input. As an engineer, my fiance was beyond impressed with the design process and the attention to detail. Mark took the time to identify exactly what we wanted and help us create our perfect ring! Communication was superb throughout the entire process and we couldn't be happier with the finished product. I would not hesitate to recommend Frederic Owen Fine Jewelry to anyone in search of a special gift.

The Frederic Owen Fine storefront is beautiful and elegant like their jewelry. Kristin and Mark are very knowledgeable and they take care of you like family.

I purchased a beautiful necklace / pendant for my girlfriend that was designed by Mark and Kristin. It is her favorite piece and she wears it all the time. She always gets complimented on it.

It was a wonderful shopping experience and I would recommend Frederic Owen Fine Jewelry to anyone looking for something beautiful. I know I'll be back soon.

Michael DiSanto

A short time ago I was looking for a very special necklace for my daughter who had lost a baby. I contacted Kristin and Mark and discussed my thoughts. I must say they designed the most beautiful and meaningful necklace. My daughter was truly over whelmed with this special piece of jewelry. Mark and Kristin have a unique talent to design exactly what is in your heart. Thank you Mark and Kristin.

Having the pleasure of meeting Mark and Kristin I was totally convinced to have them take family jewelry pieces and redesign them into something current and more "me". I was needless to say "over the moon" with every design. I now have the sentimentality of my moms stones to wear, yet updated into amazing designs due to the talents of Mark and Kristin at Frederic Owen Fine Jewelry.

Kristin and Mark have created priceless and unique jewelry for my wife and family for many years. My girlfriend ripped out magazine pictures of what she liked and Mark created an engagement ring from those ideas which my wife has enjoyed every day for 9 years! Just recently, Mark designed a one of a kind pendant for my mother incorporating colored birth stones of her 7 grandchildren. Mark creatively left space in the design for when my brother gets married and has children. Kristin and Mark's energy and iconic creativity is a delight to do business with. Anything is possible at Frederic Owen Fine Jewelry.

We have been doing business with Mark for almost 20 years and couldn't ask for a better jeweler experience. Bottom line, there is no reason to look anywhere else if your looking for your own personal jeweler. He does a fantastic job with everything his hands touch.

It’s not everyday that you make a monumental decision for something so special in your life. Unsure about what jeweler to use and where to go, a friend of ours recommended Mark to help design what would be my wife’s beautiful engagement ring. Mark took the time to meet with me personally and discuss a variety of options. Upon many consultations, Mark found me the perfect ring, and my wife couldn’t have been happier. My wife and I were so happy we used him for our wedding bands as well. Lucky for us, he has unlimited patience and makes you feel as if no question is a bad one. His expertise and knowledge make you feel comfortable with the purchase. We highly recommend Mark and thank him for helping us out.

Mark does a fantastic job through the entire designing/buying process from start to finish. He gave me multiple design options for my wife's engagement ring as well as my price range and delivered ahead of schedule. Extremely pleased with my buying experience! Kristin was quite helpful coming up with ideas and custom designs for our wedding bands and my wife's tennis bracelet. Both Mark and Kristin are very detail oriented and delivered quality in each order. I would highly recommend them.
