One of the few privately owned businesses on Rodeo Drive, Peter Marco exudes excellency in its family style operation. After 17 years on Via Rodeo, Peter Marco has a reputable clientele of repeat business as well as an international clientele that travel to the store for their jewelry needs. While the store offers a range of pieces, from multi-million dollar necklaces to engagement rings for the young couple, any customer—no matter the sale value—is treated like royalty. Peter himself remains actively involved in the store’s daily activity, and enjoys acting as a hands-on owner. He believes that repeat and referral business is based upon satisfied customers, and his strong family morals have helped him grow his business into a community of lasting relationships as opposed to one-time purchases.
With Peter Marco, the process is simple. All diamonds are GIA certified, the highest authenticity in the world of diamond accreditation. While it’s easy to win over a client’s trust with such creditable certification, Peter Marco contracts with numerous local and international shops to partner and design all types of unique pieces with the highest quality diamonds. Peter Marco enlists manufactures and cutters of diamonds from all over the world to not only bypass wholesalers, but also to directly source the stones for custom usage. When shopping for diamonds, Peter Marco’s expert staff educates each client on the multitude of factors that go into hand-selecting each and every unique diamond.
Peter Marco is a team-oriented, family-run business with an immense passion for what they do. After recently signing an extended 20 year lease on Rodeo Drive, the team is “here to stay. Another generation will come in and take over—it’s a family business.” As if the quality of the product was not sufficient enough for a successful business operation, the familial sense only further solidifies Peter Marco’s passion for the industry. Peter and his team of salesmen strive to cultivate camaraderie with their clients, hoping everyone who passes through their door enters as a shopper and leaves as a friend. In the world of jewelry, Peter Marco feels that he is always learning, and is always curious to create new designs, cultivate new relationships, and curate new inventory everyday.
