Wedding ring jeweler in Chicago
August 2, 2011 3:50 PM   Subscribe

I am ready to pop the question and am looking for places in Chicago to buy a wedding ring. Has anyone had success with a jeweler buying a wedding ring that they recommend? I want to customize the design a bit.

I had a good experience with Ethan Lord Jewelers.

When I was looking for an engagement ring, I was impressed by dimend SCASSI (their capitalization, not mine). They seem to specialize in custom designs.

I eventually bought the ring at Malnekoff and Sons Jewelers. They were very patient and attentive during the dozen or so times I visited them. They're a little more old school (they have to buzz you in!), but that's the kind of ring my now wife wanted. My wife comes from a family of jewelers (yeah, a little pressure) and they approved of the ring.

Chris Timberlake did a good job building a custom engagement ring that took into account tastes, ethics, and budget even.

Christopher Duquet in Evanston is simply amazing.

Seconding dimend SCASSI, they had some gorgeous pieces and were well willing to work within my budget, but I happened to luck out and was given an heirloom piece by my grandmother before I put money down. Still, if I had to do it again, that's where I'd go.

Thirding Chris Duquet. He and his associate (I think her name was Villi) were wonderful to work with, and Mrs. zooropa loves her ring.
