In world-famous Beverly Hills, at the heart of Rodeo Drive and Wilshire, at the top of a cobblestone path at 2 Rodeo, sits a extraordinary jeweler, Peter Marco, a family owned business, with one of the most spectacular selections of Bling we have ever seen!
The Showman Extraordinaire behind this phenomenon, Peter Voutsas, began his career at age 14 from humble beginnings, working at a New York Jeweler cleaning offices. Peter’s eyes opened wide when he saw the fascinating gems and jewelry up close and realized it was a great business with plenty of money and respect. Clients were successful people in life that appreciated beautiful things for themselves, and he wanted a piece of it.
That passion drove Peter to learn the business from the ground up. He graduated and became a runner, hustling back and forth from the office to the gold casters, gem cutters, jewelers and repair shops, with each step learning all he could about how the pieces were made.
By age 16, Peter was setting diamonds, polishing jewelry, carving waxes and making his own creations. He furthered his studies in gems and gemology at night while working days as a bench jeweler. When he finished school, the owner promoted Peter to sales. He hit the road with a bag full of rings and jewels and visited jewelers face-to-face to move the goods. This was the best school Peter could ever imagine, his sales skills sharpened and his confidence was pure since he knew exactly how the jewels were assembled. Peter drove the US from Coast to Coast and hustled in every major market, making relationships with his magnetic personality everywhere he went, eventually working on his own after becoming experienced in buying and selling diamonds, jewelry and watches. At age 20, Peter made his first million dollar sale.
Peter’s passion for the business took him worldwide as his sphere of influence grew to Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Peter connected with the giants of the Diamond and gem trades, with $ Billions in inventory and power to give him a push. During his career, Peter developed a stellar reputation with suppliers and customers. He had a dream, to move wife Esmerel and his two boys Peter and Marco to the West Coast to open his own spectacular boutique in Beverly Hills.
Peter’s dream came true in 2008 when he opened his shop proudly named Peter Marco Jewelers, after his two sons, Peter and Marco. His tremendous work ethic and positive energy propelled Peter into super stardom with celebrities, athletes, musicians and admirers from all walks of life. Today the boutique at 2 Rodeo remains a success and one of the highlights when visiting Beverly Hills. Peter Marco Bling is loved and collected worldwide. His clients include Champ Floyd Mayweather, The Weeknd, Offset, Snoop Dogg, Ricky Martin and Producer Michael.
