Nathan Malnekoff & Sons Jewelers, a 4th generation family business. I would trust them with anything! They are located at 5 S. Wabash Ave in Chicago. Very high quality pieces and excellent customer service.

Similar to what snmcdowell suggested, that entire block of Wabash Avenue is called "jewelers row" with dozens of small jewelers that offer great pricing and great quality. Considerably better pricing than a big name jeweler. Its definitely worth a look!

I also recommend going to "Jewelers Row" on Wabash Ave. in downtown Chicago.  There are a ton of jewelers down there.

Mr. Radish had my engagment ring made by a jewelery designer there named Abraham Guiterrez. He did a great job and had very reasonable prices.

Jewlers row is the best. My engagement ring came from Wabash Diamond Co on Jewelers row.  Its not a pretty store, but the customer service is excellent and I LOVE my ring.

I’m so glad you posted this question, because ChicagoSteve and I are planning to go down to Jeweler’s Row very soon to check out wedding band options! Now, my question is, for those of you who’ve already been, did you call in advance, or can you just walk in? One of my old coworkers gave me the name of yet another jeweler in that area and she said I should call first – but I think I’d rather browse a bunch of places before I make direct contact with any one jeweler in particular. Thoughts?

ChicagoSarah —  when Mr. Radish was hunting for my engagement ring, he just went down to jewelers row and talked to just about every store until he found the designer he used. 

You might need appointments for a few places, but you should probably just go down there first and see what you find and if there are any places that won’t see you without an appt. then you can get their info and call them to make one.

We got both of my rings at Dimend Scassi on Wabash.  On the weekend trips when we knew we’d need some time with them, we’d call for an appointment.  But, after they got to know us and/or when we just had to stop by for a quick thing, we just came by during their hours.

I think the store has been recommended quite a bit on chicago board on the knot.

HTH!

Thanks for the comments about whether or not appts are necessary too – I finally just signed up for the boards yesterday and I loved the near-instant feedback!

I highly recommend James and Sons, ask for Leslie in Linclon Park. SHES AMAIZING! Be careful at jewelers row a friend of mine was scammed there. If you are like me and not super knowledgeble about jewelery bring someone who is.
