Mark Yelton grew up helping goldsmiths polish and repair jewelry in the business started by his father, Roy. However, he graduated from Miami University in 1995 with a bachelor of arts in graphic design. It was that love for design in all aspects of life - cars, technology, advertising and of course jewelry; that brought him back to the family business. He has an affinity for unique watches and working on custom design jewelry for his clients. Mark is a huge sports addict and is a big fan of the local sports teams, Reds, Bengals and Buckeyes. He also grew up a fan of Tar Heel Basketball and loves watching his boys play multiple sports. Despite the fact that he and wife, Tina, are both true Virgos, they have managed to work together and raise their two wonderful boys all while focusing how to make sure that they continue to make Yelton Fine Jewelers the best around. They've managed to make it work for almost 15 years now, and most days, he's still thankful to work with her.
