spend their days completely devoted to...
Explanation:
...although this may come across as too wussy in English(?)
~ in which case I might also just suggest more simply:
"(the designer/design team) is/are completely devoted to..."

"The design team spend their days completely devoted to creating high jewelry designs that make them (the friends?/colleagues?/peers?) shine even more brightly....." ::gag::

~ that enhance their natural sparkle?

Err, good luck with this one, Rog!
