Sparkling Sunrise 7/19/2010

I've gotten to know Ellie over the past several years at her studio events and through purchasing both custom designed and collection pieces. When my beau and I starting thinking wedding bells, I immediately thought of Ellie and we were both excited to work with her! She is patient and thoughtful in designing jewelry to meet individual styles and budgets. My now fiancee presented my lovely Ellie ring with a sunrise proposal and a view of the city from Diversey harbor. The sparkles in the ring and our eyes were, and continue to be, magical. Thanks Ellie! Pros: Creativity, Design, Personalization, Studio Location & View Cons: N/A more

Wonderful jewelry 7/1/2010

My mother has got me hooked on Ellie's jewelry. She had two rings made by Ellie, and both were unique and gorgeous (plus, I hear that the price is right). My mom then referred my now-fiance to Ellie for my engagement ring; it's a beautiful cushion-cut sapphire (unusually light for a sapphire because it's not heated) with diamonds surrounding it. Ellie had worked and guided my fiance through the process who didn't know anything about rings and stones. In addition to custom designs, Ellie has her own collection which I always drool over when I walk into her store. Pros: Great jewelry, wonderful service Cons: No cons! more

Ellie Thompson is a real gem! 6/30/2010

Ellie Thompson is a wonderfully talented designer. She has made over a dozen very special pieces for me. I wear one almost every day, and--no matter how long ago she made them--they never fail to make me feel good every time I put them on. Ellie's work is truly special. Her collections have an elegant originality. And it's a real pleasure to work with her. She understands what you're looking for, and at what price--and unfailingly makes it happen. If you're looking for something special at a reasonable price, take a look at Ellie's latest designs. Pros: Elegant, Stylish,Timeless--Instant Heirlooms more

Beautiful well made jewlery 6/29/2010

I have known Ellie for many years. I have seen her jewelry creations evolve and her ability to understand what her customers want turn into some kind of Jedi mind trick. Most recently, I recommended her to a friend in Maryland, and though Ellie is right across form Millennium Park, she custom designed their wedding set through emails and a couple of phone calls. They are thrilled with their rings! I have several pieces from her collections and pieces she has designed just for me. All of them have a weight and feel to them that only high quality jewelry conveys. Her stone choices are phenomenal. The only thing that tops the jewelry is Ellie herself. She really cares about what you want and that you are very happy with the end result. Pros: Amazing feeling of her jewlery in your hands more

Ellie's beautiful Designs 6/29/2010

Ellie Thompson designs the most beautiful jewelry. I have a ring she designed and I never fail to get stopped as people always notice my ring. It is an extremely unique design and I really enjoy wearing it. She is delightful to work with and her workmanship is excellent. I don't think anyone will ever regret buying a piece from Ellie's collection. All her jewelry designs are just so beautiful and a treasure to own Pros: beautiful jewelry more

Well Worth Having In Your Jewelry Collection 6/29/2010

I will just paste here a version of what I wrote to Ellie when my ring arrived in the mail: ""Received the ring this a.m., tore open the package, and what to my wondering eyes... It's gorgeous! Really! More fantastic than I remember the ring being when I tried it on at the Field Museum gift shop. I like the muted tone of mine even more. The 18kt gold flower really takes the ring to a whole other level. And the ring is so wonderfully big. [...] Well, I could rhapsodize all day, but suffice to say that I am very pleased. Thank you so much for the love that you obviously put into this ring. It makes it special!"" I am an inveterate jewelry buff so have developed an eye for what is truly worth having in my collection (within my budget and station in life). Ellie Thompson's pieces are works of art that will stand the test of time and gain value. She is a consummate American artist of her era. I did not hesitate to purchase the triple flower ring from the American Metaphor collection. It is magnificently large and makes a unique statement. It stands alone. Ellie herself is wonderfully accommodating and easy to work with, not what you'd expect from a jeweler with her talent. At her suggestion, I even ""upgraded"" the ring so that the smallest flower is 18kt gold and adds just that much more je ne sais quoi to the piece. I am thrilled with it. more

Fantastic designs, service, and prices 6/28/2010

I loved working with Ellie on the wedding rings my wife and I got from her. My wife's been a fan of her work for a while now, so we had confidence that she'd be able to deliver something that woudl knock our socks off. Ellie presented some truly spectacular designs to us for consideration after we set the direction and style we wanted. The execution was flawless. Pros: Truly unique pieces Cons: You want something generic? Go to the mall... more

Truly Gifted Jewelry Designer! 10/30/2008

My husband Michael and I arrived at Ellie's office with a chunk of platinum and a sketchbook full of ideas. We were getting engaged (and married) and wanted unique rings for both occasions. A friend had recommended Ellie to us and assured us she'd be wonderful to work with on this project. Pros: Incredible Customer Service and Professionalism, Gifted Designer more

Someone who is invested in you! 8/14/2008

I like other men on this list did not have a great knowledge of jewelry; in fact I was completely ignorant. I wanted a custom engagement ring that incorporated a family stone and spoke to the character of my fiancee. Ellie knocked it out of the park!! I have received the best complements on the ring, and everyone I know wants to know where I had the ring made. I felt such a sense of personal care and thought about what we were trying to create. Ellie is looking out for you, and wants to build life long relationships, which is a touch one won?t find in any chain jeweler. I found Ellie on the internet and don?t plan to do anymore searching. more

Ellie is the best! 4/1/2008

I could probably be labeled the typical male when it comes to choosing jewelry...the label...an idiot. Ellie was rec'd from a family member so I went to her 8 years ago to buy my engagement ring for my wife. I have not stopped going to her at least once a year for gifts for my wife and other family members. She really gave me the guided tour in ring selection. I found her to be incredibly forthright and honest in deciding between engagement rings which really made me feel at ease. Her selection of gift ideas, creativity and service is just unbelievable. I will only use Ellie for all of my jewelry design needs more

I would have married sooner had I known my engagement ring would be so beautiful! 3/31/2008

I found Ellie Thompson & Co in a round-about way when I was looking for someone to repair sterling pieces (mostly earrings) near and dear to my heart. She did a fantastic job, and when it came time for my fiance and me to design a ring for the diamond he gave me - our first stop was Ellie's. I knew the overall look I wanted; Ellie and my fiance took over from there - I must modestly say that I have the most beautiful engagement ring in the world. And wedding ring. And two subsequent pair of earrings! In addition, she's helped me retrofit more sterling. Ellie educates while she designs - I know the provenance of my stones. Ellie informs as she sells - I know what pieces look best on me. She is creative, delivers promptly, and a fantastic woman to work with. I highly recommend that you stop by and meet Ellie, see her work, and meet the person who should design/sell you your next treasure. more

Beautiful jewelry by a creative, fun artist 3/31/2008

I'm a novice when it comes to jewelry, and Ellie Thompson made me feel very comfortable and at ease with designing a replacement wedding band for my wife. Any other jeweler I've encountered in the past made me feel out of place, but that is not at all the case with Ellie. more
