An entrepreneur with a creative heart and strategic mind for business, Leslie Greene was inspired to design her own line to satisfy every woman’s desire for fine jewelry that flaunts chic style, luxurious quality and a timeless, classic appeal. Designing jewelry for over 16 years, her talent for combining treasured classics with modern trends has truly brought her to the forefront of the fine jewelry industry.
Leslie’s philosophy is that jewelry should make a signature statement, personal statement, meaning much more than just a simple finishing touch. She aspires to create pieces that become a reflection of who a woman is, not what she wears.
“I feel connected to the women who wear my jewelry and I am inspired by their individuality. My collections are always evolving, as are my customers,” says Leslie.
A true designer, Leslie’s collections are the culmination of her creative interests, including fashion, home decor, antiquing and the fine arts. As an avid world traveler, rare antiques, vintage wallpapers and historical architecture lend inspiration to new designs. The daughter of a textile designer, Leslie is also very much influenced by fashion and fabrics of the past and present.
Since graduating from New York’s prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology, Leslie has been recognized by the fine jewelry industry for her design talent. Prestigious awards and honors include Town and Country’s Diamond Designer Excellence Award 1997, the Women Jewelers Association Award for Excellence in Design 1997, JQ International Magazine’s 2006 Annual Retailer’s Choice Award–Designer of the Year, and the 2004 JA Golden Apple Award. Touching the lives of many women extends into Leslie’s endless support of various charitable organizations, including Mommy’s Light, The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, City of Hope, The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, A Key to a Cure, Susan G. Komen For the Cure, and other foundations.
