This month McCaskill & Company celebrates its 18th birthday! After closing his two hardward and building supply businesses, Bill followed his passion for jewerly and opened his designer jewerly gallery in a 9′ x 10′ kiosk in Seaside, Flrrida. Guided by designers that apprecited his enthusiasm and love for quality and fine craftsmanship, they graciously introduced him to fellow designers. In less than a year later, he had outgrown his tiny shop and relocated to the Market Shop of Sandestin. Collections continued to grow, thus in three years we ventured out to find property for a free standing gallery. Opening in 1999 in our current location allowed the addition of wataches, to include Rolex, and expansion of other designer lines. We are genuinely grateful to all of the freinds that we have made in this journey.

How lucky if you have an April birthday – your birthstone is diamond! The word Diamond is derived from the Greek word “adamas” which means “unbreakable” reflecting the property of the stone. Most natural diamonds are formed at high temperature and pressure at depths of 87 to 120 miles in the Earth mantle. The growth occurs over periods from 1 billion to 3.3 billion years and are brought close to the Earth surface through deep volcanic eruptions. WOW! The 4C’s – cut, clarity, color and carat weight all have very significant impact on the value of a diamond.
Now who does not love a diamond! McCaskill & Company is host to some of the most renowned diamond sources to include Kwiat, Louis Glick, Daniel K, Henri Daussi, Christopher Designs, William Levine, Ritani and Oscar Heyman.
