Jewelry custom made for a king—and his entire court

Designers: Pav & Broome Diamond Jewelers

Today, most Americans think New Orleans when they think about Mardi Gras, the bacchanalian celebration just before the Christian season of Lent. But Mattew Pav—an owner of Pav & Broome Diamond Jewelers in Gulfport, Mississippi—and his wife, Gail, like to point out that Mardi Gras actually started in Mobile, Alabama, before moving west to Biloxi, Mississippi, and finally to the Big Easy. So when that festive season rolls around each year, chances are there will be dance, song, and revelry not just in New Orleans, but pretty much everywhere along the Gulf Coast. The ties run deep.
