My relationship with EverGreene
Jewelers began in 1999 upon
returning to Minnesota after
leaving the corporate world with a
national retailer. I needed a jeweler
and my father told me about Jerry
and Liz at EverGreene Jewelers.
Our friendship developed into my career at EverGreene
Jewelers which began in 2003. And that speaks to how it is
at our store – it’s about relationships. Much of why I love my
work is having the opportunity to know the customers and
create friendships. Some of these relationships have become
generational. How great to work with grandparents, their
children and their children’s children. That says something
about the enduring aspects of the jewelry business!
I like working behind the scene with store management,
but I also love the one on one interaction with our clients.
How great to be able to assist others in their selection of
that special jewelry item whether they are getting engaged,
celebrating an anniversary or birth of a child or any of life’s
events! After all, I get to work with products I love – JEWELRY,
and see the pleasure it brings others. How fun is that! I get to
hear a lot of life’s stories which brings out the personality of
the jewelry. Yes, it really is a personal and relationship kind of
business unlike any other retail business.
EverGreene Jewelers has been your reliable jeweler since
1979 not just because of its associates, but also because of
wonderful customers like YOU!

Celebration of Jewelry: There is a
celebration of story in each piece
I receive the most joy out of combining family jewelry into
one of a kind pieces that represent a new story or continue
to build on an existing one.
My reason to love the business is to share story and
celebrate the uniqueness of art and style.

Started with EverGreene
Jewelers August 2011…going on
my 10th year.
Favorite jewelry story…and
there are many…but one stands
out. And that is the story of a
couple who became engaged
right on our sales floor! She was totally surprised when
he proposed, ring in hand. She had been wondering why
they had stopped in…but left the store very excited. Never
saw it coming! One other wonderful story…an older client
came in with a couple of rings she had inherited. The rings
had multiple diamonds, like dinner rings of the past. We
designed 7 pendants for all the granddaughters, using the
stones from these vintage rings. Made a lot of diamond
dreams come true.
Which leads me to why I love this business. I have the
privilege of being a part of some very special life changing
events, and take my role in this seriously. It is my job to
make the shopping experience smooth and seamless for
our clients, providing outstanding customer service. As your
personal jeweler, my goal is to deliver as promised, in a very
timely fashion, and with exceptional value.

How many years...
A favorite celebration of
jewelry...A sweet memory is of a
loving husband who brought his
wife into Evergreene to purchase
her a new diamond. When they
were married over 40 years ago, their budget was small, and
now he wanted to demonstrate his love by upgrading her
diamond. She is very sentimental about her original stone
and didn’t want to change it. I was able to show them how
a diamond halo around the original stone made it sparkle
while retaining her long loved diamond. When he put the
ring with the new halo on her hand, I think they both cried!
Helping people celebrate their life and love is wonderful!

It’s been a privilage to be part of
the jewlery business for over 30
years. My father, Jerry Greene,
who is the founder of EverGreene
Jewelers, has always said, “The
jewelry business is a happy
business.” When working with clients for an engagement
ring or a diamond anniversary ring it symbolizes so much.
The love they’ve built and the commitment they’ve made
to one another.
The beauty of this businees has been the past, the present
and the future! Glory to God and I am thankful to our
clients and the associates that have worked at this store
and the other businesses that have helped us along the
way. Thanks to my mom and dad and family that have
encouraged and inspired me!
