Best Rings of 2017


Each year artists at Green Lake look back on their favorite pieces of the year. These are rings that dazzled and delighted us, but more so offered us the opportunity to design unique pieces within the most popular wedding ring styles today. Here are our 7 favorite styles  – and 30 favorite engagement rings – all from 2017.



We love when our Artists use old-world jewelry techniques to create flowing filigree, delicate pierced patterns, and the finest milgrain to vintage-inspired pieces.
