Hi Mark,

Leigh and I both love our rings, they are beautiful and unique, and it means so much to come from such a personal business. You can be sure we'll be back at some point in the future. Argent is the best!

Best regards,

Tom ( & Leigh )

Debbie & I would like to thank you for making our wedding bands. We are so excited to be wearing such magnificent works of art. We will cherish them forever. They are truly spectacular and we would not have them if not for your abilities and eye for detail.
Thanks again for the care and love you put into them.
Sincerely, With Love, Delores & Debbie



After a wait of more than twenty two years, Michael D. Prokuda and David C. Williams are pleased to announce that they were legally married in the state of Florida where they reside on January 31, 2015.

We wish to express our thanks to our friends and family members who have been so supportive of us and our relationship over the years.

Both Michael and David have retained their surnames.

After the wedding ceremony Michael and David proceeded to bar/restaurant Tropics for their reception. They were joined by the wedding party, niece Lexi and friends Sharon, Keith & Greg. After dinner they moved the party to the cabaret also at Tropics. Friends Gloria and Tony serenaded them with favorite songs. All making for a lovely memorable evening.

From the chapel, flowers, cake, rings, to the restaurant Michael and David only worked with gay owned or “gay friendly” business in preparation of their celebration. As a thank you for the struggle it took to have the right for same sex couples to marry.

Hello Mark,

Rather untimely, however, Rick loves his bracelet, and so do I. It is just so handsome, and unique. Thank you so much for
helping me to make it a great present for him. Your idea really hit the mark!

We are looking forward to our New York vacation where we can show it off to our friends who are also long time lifeguards. My girlfriend mentioned that it gave her an idea of how to wear her father's old Jones Beach Lifeguard bracelet, which has been in a drawer for years unworn.

So, thank you for your keen eye and beautiful work.

See you again. Wishing you a wonderful summer vacation.

Thank you,
Polly

Dear Mark,
Just got home to a wonderful gift in my mailbox. The earrings arrived safe and sound. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You have added happiness to my holidays, and I wish much happiness to you in return. Will see you next time I visit Maureen.

Regards,
Arlene


Dear Mark,

Thank you for the kind note and photo. It has been a pleasure to visit your shop any time we buy jewelry. Actually, we rarely buy any jewelry. When we do though, we make certain to visit your store because we know of your talent and original designs. In the last ten years we have moved from Miami Beach, to Lancaster, CA, to Miramar, FL, to Huntsville, AL, and last May returned to the Boca Raton area. In these various years of living we have always come back to Florida to visit family, and still visited your shop. Best of luck to you and your endeavors. We will see you again :)

Thank You,
Jim & Olenka


Hi Mark:

WOW! What a surprise! It is absolutely stunning! it is breathtaking to say the very least. I really only have three words to say: OH MY GOD!

Thank you so much for all you've done to create such a gorgeous ring. I will see you this coming Saturday at about 12:30 P.M. Russell and my Mom will be there too. I already warned Russell and told him to bring his sunglasses! He said he will be wearing his "Lebron James" running sneakers used when he hits the floor running away with my breathtaking mega diamond ring. LOL!

Regards, Bob

Hi Mark,

The "Lord of the Rings" is truly beautiful and amazing! It is obvious that such a magnificent piece of art was created with much skill and love -- and it will be worn with much love. A ring of solid pure 24K gold to symbolize Wayne and my pure and endless love for one another. I can't wait to put it on Wayne's finger. The LORD has blessed your work, of this I'm sure.

Best Regards,

Diane

Hi Mark,

Congratulations on being elected President of the Lauderdale By The Sea Chamber of Commerce! What a wonderful recognition and opportunity for you. --With all the positive energy you bring to the table, I can't wait to see what marvelous plans you help bring to fruition.

Regarding spirituality,... I, too, believe that nothing happens by chance -- everything happens for a reason. The first time Wayne and I visited your store was during my first trip to "LBTS" last February. Wayne owns a condo just north of the shopping district, along the beach. Prior to that he has spent time in LBTS throughout most of his life, but had never been inside your store.

Prior to visiting your store, we had first stopped by two other stores in "LBTS." Each of these stores had a plethora of finished jewelry, but nothing original -- everything looked as if it had been put together from a catalog, and very uninspired. The salespeople, in my opinion, were very high-pressure; some were downright aggressive. I would not consider purchasing anything from these "jewelers."

On our way back to the condo, we saw your shop. Something compelled me to investigate further. Wayne turned the car around, we parked, got out, and rang Argenti's doorbell. -- After having met you and seen your distinctive works of art, I knew that I wanted to gift Wayne one of your creations. Wayne loves the iolite and sapphire ring he chose from your collection. He wears it regularly.

There is an ethereal, celestial beauty inherent in your work that exudes positive, healing energy. It appears to reveal the creativity, energy, passion and integrity you impart to each piece. I am also an artist, and know the feeling of having imparted a creation with a special part of myself that I, in all humility, hope will be a gift to the wearer/owner.

I believe that a symbol of love, such as a wedding band, should be made not only with skill and be of high quality... A wedding band should be one-of-a-kind -- created individually, with much loving care, inspiration, and reverence for the unique love it symbolizes. I am convinced that you are the person to create this ring.

Best Regards,

Diane

Hi Mark,

Just wanted to send some Christmas blessings your way and many for the coming New Year.
It's always a great treat to visit your shop on my visits to Lauderdale by the Sea.
You make each person that walks through your door very special and I'm always happy with my purchases.
I'm really hoping to see you in the Spring - one word . . .

BLING:) Penny

This month I would like to highlight Argenti Designer Jewelers located at 218 E Commercial Blvd. The handsome proprietor and designer of all the fabulous jewelry is Mark Silver. He originally started in the jewelry business back in 1986 with locations in New York and Connecticut. In 1991 he opened his first store in Florida at the Fashion Mall in Plantation. From there his next stop was Las Olas Blvd. After being at these locations for eighteen years, we were very fortunate to have Lauderdale-By-The-Sea the location of Mark’s next business venture. When you walk into Mark’s store, it is truly a unique experience. I know – my only problem is trying to figure out what I want to look at first. He has a wonderful display of exquisite jewels and is also very generous with his time. So stop by when you are in the neighborhood, I’m sure you’ll run into me there!!! If you want more information, please check out Mark’s website: www.argentidesignerjewelers.com.

Brigitte Doria

Mark,

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your beautiful gems of wisdom today! Being with you refreshes my spirit and calms my soul. When I first met you, I was dangling towards the very end of the very last strand of my rope! Even then, I knew you were a wonderful person. Things were so dark for me then, and you stood out like a shining star. Now when I see you, it is a revelation of how far I have come on my journey since 2003...it reminds me to always keep faith and hope!

Enjoyed your article on "amethysts." My heart-shaped amethyst ring from you brings me constant pleasure. I think of it as my "puple heart of courage!" I will treasure it forever!

I am excited to give Vena her necklace tomorrow!

Attached is a prayer that I adapted, which I hope you will enjoy. I say it often every day!

Peace and Love,
Monica


Dear Mark:

How thrilled we were when we went on your site this morning to find our picture that you took! That is a first for us and we feel like celebrities!!! That was so very nice of you and we will always cherish our time spent with you and in your beautiful store. I am absolutely thrilled with my blue topaz/Australian opal ring and adore wearing it. It means so much that you designed and made it and it's one of a kind...also a first for me. Mary Lou loves her beautiful mother of pearl and onyx necklace you designed and can hardly wait to show all her friends in Baltimore.

We arrived home Sunday night after a wonderful and memorable week in Ft. Lauderdale. Our condo at the Marriott was gorgeous with a million dollar view...that we could even see from our bed at night and the skyline of the large buildings on Las Olas were directly in our view!

We thank you for the time you spent with us and the wonderful conversation we had. We look forward, hopefully and God willing, to another trip next year. Have a terrific grand opening and wish we could be a part of it.

Sincerely,

Nan & Bill Bettinger and Mary Lou Strohman

Mark,

Thank you for calling to let me know you finished sizing my new ring. I admit I was taken off guard by your call and probably didn't sound as appreciative as I was. Thanks for mailing it to me in CA promptly.

My friend Rocco and I visited the store to buy some gifts for my family members and I ended up also buying the faceted black onyx man's ring for myself. Just want you to know how happy I am with the ring; I receive compliments on it when I wear it. All my gifts from Argenti were well received and I look forward to being a continuing customer - great designs and fairly priced!

I hope you had great holidays! Happy New Year,
Ron K

Dear Mr. Argenti,

My husband and I came into your store on 12/30/08 (we were the couple from D.C. area who bought a lot of your less costly items; my husband bought the leather bracelet). Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I have already had a comment on the heart shaped cubic necklace set from one of my senior partners -- who buys very nice jewelry for his wife ---- he was very impressed with the design and thought I was sporting some real diamonds. I am enjoying my new jewelry and I am certain I will be either stopping back by or ordering jewelry from you in the future.

Best regards,
Melissa

Mark, Thank you again for your time and friendliness on my recent visit to Florida. I so appreciate the design of the jewelry I purchased. I have had many compliments on the earrings I bought and my son in law told me I wasn't to out do him with the purchase of the beautiful necklaces I bought for my daughters:) Hoping to see you again next year. Penny

Hey Mark: Your work is beautiful! The Science of Mind pendant you made for me is my favorite piece of all time - for what it means, yes, but also for the beautiful craftsmanship. I haven't been to the new store - will have to come shopping - birthdays and anniversary coming up. - David M.

Dear Mark,

I am a blessed lady who received the gift of a turquoise heart that you designed. It was given to me for my birthday from my friend Roger R.

I want to thank you for creating such a beautiful and magical piece of jewelry. I feel like an enchanted Princess when I put it on, and I always receive many compliments. It has become my lucky charm.

Thank you for making my heart happy.

Mark:

It was great seeing you and the new store yesterday. As we mentioned, it was on our "vacation agenda" to stop in and see you. We are both glad we did. Congrats! The new shop is great.

I wanted to say thanks. I love my beautiful jewelry. It was great that I was able to add six new pieces to my Argenti Collection. As always, your unique attention to detail and quality, along with the exquisite craftsmanship makes us loyal customers return again and again!

I wanted to share an interesting story. After I left the shop yesterday wearing the Lauderdale Palm you had recommended, I got stopped three separate times by women telling me how beautiful it was and asking where I got it. Paul (the hubby) was amazed. I just laughed as it happens to me so often when I wear one of your pieces in Philly. But this is in Florida--too funny. I am happy to report that I had told each of them where I got it.

Please do keep in touch and let me know how things are going and when you have new designs coming out.

Warmest regards,
Gazelle

Hi Gazelle &Paul,

Firstly, I would like to thank you for making my showroom a destination. I am sincerely honored that you continue to admire and wear my jewelry designs. I have made many friends that are also customers along my journey at Argenti and I am blessed to have this privilege.

Thank you for all your sincere and heart felt wishes in my new location. It has been exciting and with the help of the universe everything is truly wonderful now.

I will continue to design creative pieces at affordable prices so you will always be adorned in unique jewelry that will make your life a beautiful experience.

Also, thank you for the idea for the gemstone earrings--I will definitely consider to making them ASAP.

The story about the palm tree design is very interesting because many other people who have purchased it and wore that necklace had the same experience as you did.
I am just grateful that you are wearing something of mine that brings you compliments and happiness.

Hope you have a wonderful, relaxing and warm stay in Florida.

I just have to say once more....thank you... for your patronage.

Regards,
Mark
