About Us

We're Serious About Jewelry

We're Serious About Our Community

We've been creating one-of-a-kind jewelry for Chicagoans since 1986. Our relaxing showroom is bursting with jewelry and gems we’ve collected from around the world. We are excited to share them with you.

We're Serious About Responsibility

Jewelry is a notoriously difficult product category for those of us interested in responsible sourcing and supply chains. Gems, minerals, and metals are produced all over the world - most of them by artisanal miners working in isolated and far-flung communities. We want to identify the supply chains for our jewelry as much as possible - even if it means traveling to Africa (as you can see Melissa did in 2018, in this image) or Asia to establish relationships with the people at the beginning of your jewelry's journey.

Authentic Tradition

We Can't Wait to Meet You - So Come By!.

We're here for the relationships. And the jewelry. And the relationships. The point of being a neighborhood store in a city of neighborhoods is to . . . meet the neighbors. So come by! We can't wait to meet you.

We're Serious About Customers

When Steve started this business back in 1986, he did it so he could spend all his time talking with customers about jewelry. And now, 35 years later, that's still his favorite part about owning a business. Come hang out with us, have a glass of wine, let's get to know each other. Because that's what we're really all about.

Handcraft + Passion + Relationships

Our Story

"As you can probably tell by now, we're serious about relationships, quality, fine jewelry, and service. But otherwise, we're not all that serious. We believe life should be a joyful journey, and that jewelry is part of that joy.

From the beginning, all I have wanted to do is create and curate phenomenal jewelry. If you have never been truly moved by a piece, you’re in for a pleasant surprise.”
