You’ll want to go down to Jeweler’s Row on Wabash.  Best prices in the city, hands down.  I recommend going to Golden Dreams Jewelers – we got my engagement ring there as well as our wedding bands.  You can ask for Max, he is the guy in charge.  He is very knowledgeable and they made our rings veyr quickly.  THey’re at 3 S. Wabash.  (312) 609-1111

P.S.  My e-ring and wedding band are Tiffany styles – they copied them perfectly for a mere fraction of what you’d pay at the store.  πŸ™‚

I’m not sure whether they will, but it’s worth checking into.  They do custom pieces as well if you ever want to re-use the gold and diamonds and re-make them into something more modern looking.  I’d give them a call and find out.

Steve Quick Jewelers: http://www.stevequickjeweler.com/

 

This is a small, boutique jewelry shop in Lincoln Park (2471 N. Clark Street, 773-404-0034) where my now-husband worked with an artist to design my e-ring, and where we got our wedding bands custom-made, as well. They are AMAZING to work with–and I think they just added a new store in Lincoln Square, too, if that is closer to you. 

I am not positive they do appraisals, but if they do, you absolutely could not find a better store or kinder, more knowledgeable people to work with. Good luck!

I liked Stanley Brown Jewelist in Lincoln Square, we got my engagement ring there. The customer service is excellent, we spoke to Stanley Brown himself for quite a long time when we were there.

If you’re looking for a jeweler still my dad is a custom fine jewelry designer. He owns his own business on Jeweler’s Row for about 25 years now. Most people don’t know about wholesale/independent jewelers, but it’s so much better than retail. You get to design your own ring and you don’t have to deal with retail prices or people having the same ring as you. Let me know if you’re still looking and I can give you information. πŸ˜‰ He designed my engagement ring, my sisters, and my sister-in-laws in addition to all our friends and family. I promise you he’s the best! If you want a picture of our rings I’ll be more than happy to show you. I just want you to get the best too!! πŸ™‚

I’ll ditto Lincoln Square’s Stanley Brown and Steve Quick.

My fiancee said he had a great experience working with Windy City LLC on Jeweler’s Row to get my engagement ring too.  They’re really well reviewed on Yelp as well, as is Dimend Scaasi.

I’ll put in another recommendation for Stanley Brown. My fiance and I custom designed my engagement ring there. They did an awesome job – I am in love with it.

I also brought it some other jewelry I was given for an appraisal and they took a quick look and gave me an estimate so I knew it wasn’t valuable enough (in my opinion) to get an official appraisal for insurance. I’m sure they will do an official appraisal, but like anywhere else there will be a small charge I think.

Bruce is the owner there and he’s very patient and helpful with everything.

Good luck!

You have got to check out Vintage Underground (http://www.chicagovintageunderground.com/) … the owners Ellen are Carlos know just about everything about vintage and heirloom jewelry and should definitely be able to help you. Plus, that place is absolutely full of awesome goodies. You really need to check it out this weekend! All of the employees are incredibly helpful. πŸ™‚

We would not recommend Steve Quick.  We got our engagement ring and tried to get a wedding ring through them.  Customer Service is horrible…they’ll say whatever you want to hear.  We didn’t know anything about rings and felt taken advantage of there.

I had a great experience with Steve Quick.  My husband and I have purchased more than just our wedding/engagement rings from them and have had nothing but excellent customer service. I am surprised to see negative feedback?

I know they do sell estate jewelry, however I am unsure if they do appraisals.  They have two locations, Lincoln Park and Lincoln Square.
