Collaborating with clients from rough sketches to final sizings, designers at Green Lake maintain a diverse experience in a range of graphic arts, metalsmithing and sculpting disciplines. They draw, they call, they draft, they liaise, and they work to make rings into reality. For Green Lake, designers play the quintessential role in bringing ideas to life. For engagement ring clients and brides-to-be, designers act in their interest and remain as a reliable link throughout the process of creation.

WHAT WE WANT YOU TO DO

  • Advise clients on the best materials and services Green Lake can offer to help create or restore the perfect piece for them.
  • Advocate for individual client’s interests and positive experience above all, while protecting Green Lake’s integrity and commitment to expert craftsmanship.
