While our obsession with estate jewelry is well-known, we also have a passion for contemporary fine jewelry.
Meet Leslie Greene. The Fashion Institute of Technology grad has made a name for herself over the past 15 years by crafting extremely feminine pieces from gold, silver, diamonds and other precious gems. The lines are flowing and shapes are rounded and lyrical. She won Town and Country’s Diamond Designer Excellence Award, the Women Jewelers Association Award for Excellence in Design and JQ International Magazine’s 2006 Annual Retailer’s Choice Award – Designer of the Year for a reason.
