When we first set out to look for an engagement ring together, my fiance and I thought it would be pretty simple to find something that I loved. Once we made the rounds of the various stores, however, we found that no one quite had exactly what we were looking for. We could see quite clearly what we wanted - and no one had it! So we set out looking for somewhere that we could design the perfect ring.

Green Lake is not the first place we found when looking for custom designs. We spent a while working with another designer, and the experience was easily one of the most painful things we have done while planning the wedding. After spending months going back and forth with that company, and essentially being told that what we were looking for was impossible, we finally decided to look elsewhere. It was a very frustrating decision to make, especially after spending so long trying to design the ring with that company. But now that we have had the pleasure of working with Green Lake, I am so very happy we found them!

My engagement ring is, essentially, the ring of my dreams. Its craftsmanship is absolutely stunning, and they worked very hard with us in designing a one-of-a-kind setting that other people said wasn't possible. Our representative, Ellie, was extremely helpful and responsive, and worked very quickly and skillfully to put together the design of the ring. She listened when we sent back comments, and modified the design as necessary as we went on. Every interaction with her was kind and friendly, and it was a pleasure to deal with her. The skill of the artists who hand-carved the band is clearly evident in the ring, and I have gotten endless compliments on it.

I would definitely recommend Green Lake to anyone who is looking for a one-of-a-kind custom ring. They make designing a ring enjoyable (as it should be!), and their professionalism and skill is clear in every aspect of the process.

They have the widest and most varied range of ring designs I've yet to see (and believe me, I scoured the internet and stores for months). The craftmanship of my ring is impeccable and utterly unique, and their customer service is ridiculously easy to work with.

Worked with Krista at Green Lake to make a custom engagement ring and wedding band for my beautiful bride. Their work was phenomenal and they were so easy to work with -- taking direction and offering advice exactly as needed. Would strongly recommend their work to friends or others who might ask.

I went to Green Lake to get a custom wedding band to match my antique engagement ring. Initially I met with one of the artists and had a great meeting where a sketch, measurements, a timeline and a deposit was made. After about 2 months I got a call from a different artist informing me that the person I originally met with was no longer with the company. They had no record of my ring, only a record of me making a deposit. I stuck with them, just thinking that it was a crappy situation, but unfortunately things went down hill from there. I would like to think that this was a one time problem. I have friends that went there for their rings and they had a great experience. It was a stressful, and expensive process for me though, and if I could go back I wouldn't go back to them.

I'm only giving them a 3.5 on the value part because it's custom jewelry, it's not bargain basement! The truth is if you just want a simple solitaire, go to a main stream jewelry store or order it online. We wanted something very specific and unique, and LOVED the experience at Green Lake Jewerly. My ring is gorgeous and just what we wanted. The process is super cool, you get to make whatever you want, and you get to see it in wax before it's cast. I love that no one else has my ring! GLJW is a very professional and artistic place.

We really enjoyed working with Green Lake Jewelry Works on our wedding rings. We first went to them for the engagement ring. It was so much fun to get to design the engagement ring exactly how I wanted it to look. You even get to try on a "wax ring" to see how the ring will look on your finger. All along the way, you can make changes if you don't like how it looks. The only down side was that it did take a long time to finish the ring, about 6 weeks. But, if you have the patience, it is definitely worth the time and effort!! The price was also comparable to what we saw at other jewelers.

We used Green Lake Jewelry Works for our engagement and wedding needs. Each piece of jewelry is custom designed if needed. We loved the idea of GLJW because you work with the designer directly. OUr designer was Aaron Barr--he was professional and friendly. After you pick a design, a deposit is required; balance is due upon completion and satisfaction with the design.

We felt that price and personalizationwere well worth it--good experience, we will definitely use them again in the future.

Not the cheapest option, but as a custom jewelry store, you pay extra for the "custom" part of it. We had some unusual requests for our rings. They worked with us to realize our vision, and their jewelry is of excellent quality. They say if you aren't happy with the final product, they'll scrap it and start over. We didn't have to do that because they got it right the first time. No matter what style of ring you like, they have it or will make it.

Yes, creating a wedding ring from scratch IS expensive, but I got what I wanted. After coming in with a specific design, Melissa Tuttle then designed my dream band. I was able to see it at multiple stages of the creation process, in which I changed my mind about the ring size. When it finally was finished, I took it home and looked at it... and realized it wasn't what I wanted. However, they have a policy about being able to return it. So, with about a month left before the wedding, I returned it, and they literally created me a new band. The second one was what I wanted. Also, my husband was able to get a ring that he loved, a tungsten ring that is very durable and has an industrial, bluish look, and I also engraved my husband's wedding gift there. I have since gone back numerous times for ring checks and other repairs. Professional and quick every time!

My fiance surprised me with a beautiful ring from Green Lake when we got engaged. We'd looked a few shops months before, and he worked with Kirk at Green Lake to design the perfect ring. It was just what I wanted, and it was even more special because he'd designed something truly unique. I received so many compliments on it. We went back to Green Lake to for our bands, and once again the process and the final products were wonderful. Their customer service really is top notch! Also, while some people have commented have rated Green Lake lower on the value for cost standard, their prices were certainly less than similar rings at some of the "custom" high end retailers we'd visited. My fiance also did some on-line research and said their prices were similar to other sites he'd looked at...and he never felt pressured to get a bigger stone or upgrade components, which was not like our experience at a number of shops we visited. We think their jewelry is certainly a value when compared to chains, given that you are getting something truly unique with fabulous customer service.

I worked with Shelly via GLJW's online "design page" for both my engagement ring and wedding band, and she was patient and flexible through all my questions and changes. I kept changing my mind about the band until almost too late, and she still got it finished and sent to me a few days before the wedding. Both rings are special to my husband and me because they include our birthstones and are a good match for each other. I hope to order more jewelry through GLJW someday.
