@Anne9091: I got my ring custom made in Chicago (on jeweler’s row on Wabash) at Windy City Diamonds. I know it’s not in the suburbs, but it will be worth the trip. The prices are phenomenal compared to every other store, the customer service is fantastic, and they created the ring of my dreams! I worked with Garry Zimmerman (the owner). My coworker just got engaged on Saturday and her now Fiance got her ring from there as well based on my recommendation. Please go there!

I was also going to suggest the Wabash diamond district as well. My husband got my engagement ring down there. It was a different seller than Windy City, but definitely check out that area. I think you’ll get a lot more bang for your buck there than anywhere else in the city.

I didn’t want to go into the city either, but ended up going to Bryn Mawr Jewelry Co!! They have the most, and the overall best reviews on Yelp (over 50). I don’t think I remember reading one negative thing about their work, and most of them were 5 star reviews. I get the impression it’s a husband and wife team (though I’ve never asked) – Scott and Jessica. They are both SUPER nice, and I don’t know how to explain it but you just feel like you are in really good hands.

The prongs were messed up on my e-ring so that’s originally why I went in. He fixed those. They also resized my e-ring and wedding band, did appraisals, replaced a watch battery, and have made a couple of solitaire diamond necklaces out of a journey necklace I had Scott take apart (he took 2 of the diamonds off, fixed up the end and now it’s a smaller necklace). Scott did a fantastic job!! Their prices are extremely reasonable…the work is done pretty quickly, too. And he’s remembered me every time I’ve gone in!

I drive there and parking is fairly easy to find (tip: if you can go close to when they open there’s usually open meter parking on N. Winthrop Ave across from That Little Mexican Cafe). 

I’d highly rec giving them a try & it’s definitely worth the trek!! ๐Ÿ™‚   Oh, and while I didn’t personally have any custom work done, I did see some of his pieces in the shop and they were beautiful.

@mabel2026: I’ve had friends use Bryn Mawr jewelry as well. We got our wedding bands at Steve Quick in Lincoln Park. There’s a Lincoln Square location as well. Many of my friends have used them to much success. If you work with them, ask for Sarah B. She’s awesome and a good friend of mine. I highly recommend their wedding band trunk show. We went and in one day had our rings picked out and a month later with us before the wedding.
