Family, Friends & Fun is what brings this team together and fuels the passion behind M. Pope & Co. Husband and wife team Michael and Melissa, both Worcester natives, combine their passion for the finer things in life with their love of family, friends and of course their dogs, Murray & Nicholas.

Since returning to Worcester in 2012 they have continued to curate the finest selection of one of a kind jewels, classic statement pieces and trendy designer must haves in Central Massachusetts.
As a trained gemologist and designer, Michael is a graduate of the Gemological Institute of America, and provides clients years of technical design experience. Melissa’s keen sense of style ensures that the seasonal selection of jewelry is on trend and ready to wear. The Pope’s believe that education, and selection are crucial components of what they can offer their clients. They strive to give you the absolute best value while standing by a commitment to quality and selection.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about M. Pope & Co. My husband and I got married this past May and we purchased my engagement ring and our wedding bands at the store. We love the quality and designs they had to offer us. Michael and Melissa are amazing! They are so friendly and fun. They even put up with our changing finger sizes to make sure we had the perfect fit! We continue to go into the store to see them often and look forward to continuing to shop with them in the future! Thank you!

I’m not exaggerating when I say that working with Michael and Melissa was the easiest and most enjoyable part of the entire engagement/wedding process.
When we first went in to look at engagement rings, my wife and I were quite nervous but Michael’s calming presence immediately put us at ease. One of my favorite things about our experience with Michael was that he wasn’t just knowledgeable, he made an effort to educate us so we could make an informed decision. I also appreciate that he didn’t try to up sell me when I was buying the ring – he tried to help me keep the cost down.
Almost two years later and only a few weeks before the wedding, the wife and I decided we should probably get some wedding bands. We were already out and decided to stop at the nearest jeweler to just get some simple bands. Almost immediately I knew we were making a mistake. I looked at my wife and said, “Let’s go to M. Pope.”
The following day we went back to see Michael and Melissa. They were having a day. Their power had been out for most of the day, their systems were down, and Melissa was on a break between her Masters classes. Even with all of that going on, they still treated us with with the same unparalleled professionalism they had shown us two years prior.
Thank you for being part of our journey.
