Specializing in diamond jewelry, Marcou Jewelers has been family owned for more than 50 years and is now operated by the founders’ children and family members in three Massachusetts locations: Waltham, Watertown, and Belmont. The family came to us with a challenge: Can we make a blade sign shine like a diamond? Our answer was yes, we can. For this unique and fun project, our designers and fabricators created a floating diamond that mimics the look of the real thing. As a result, Metro Sign & Awning won first place in the United States Sign Design Council’s 2016 prestigious run of awards.
