Excellent experience all around 8/14/2009

I was looking to do something special for my engagement on the ring side. I was referred to Ethan Lord through one of my co-workers. Her husband had designed her ring there and had raved about the experience. Pros: Great Service, Great Price, Great Experience more

Best place for engagement rings! 8/14/2009

My fiance designed my engagement ring at Ethan Lord last fall. He raved about the experience he had working with Larry. Larry will shoot you straight and really help you find the best ring for your budget. The great thing about Ethan Lord is that you can completely design your ring exactly they way you want it - and it's really easy! The ring turned out even better than we had envisioned it. We also went back to Ethan Lord for our wedding bands, and again Larry exceeded our expectations. He was able to custom make my band to match my engagement ring exactly. I couldn't be happier with our experience with Larry at Ethan Lord. Overall we had great customer service, great value, and great quality! more

Amazing customer service 7/31/2009

I was searching online for an engagement ring to give my fiance ever since he proposed to me. I finally found Ethan Lord online and the perfect ring. Customer service was very pleasant, and they kept in contact with me regarding my ring being on back-order, then shipped it to me sooner than expected. Absolutely perfect experience. I even blogged about it! Check it out if interested in more details at: Pros: Prompt and concise communication, high quality merchandise, Cons: None! more

If only all my wedding vendors were like Ethan Lord... 7/8/2009

I really don't even know where to begin. I found a design that I loved online, and was looking for a place to replicate this design in the metal of my choice. I called a TON of custom jewelry places and they were all either too much money, or not unable to reach my deadline. Then I luckily came across Ethan Lord. Their team worked with me to create not only my wedding band, but my wife's as well. I cannot say enough about their professional work ethic and their attention to detail. I have already started recommending them to other friends of mine. I was especially nervous to have somebody create my wedding bands that I couldn't sit down an talk with face to face (I live in the New York City Area), but Larry made the entire process so easy with e-mails and phone calls, that I honestly think it worked out even better than having to go somewhere all the time. Honestly, the entire process was fantastic and I found myself saying, "If only everybody else we're working with for the wedding was more like Larry, planning our wedding would be much easier!!!" Pros: Amazing Customer Service, Even More Amazing Final Product Cons: I never got to see the storefront myself more

Excellence in everything that they do. 7/6/2009

I went to Ethan Lord for the first time just over a year ago when I was looking to buy and engagement ring. I was very nervous and also clueless. I had a rough design of what my wife wanted but really had no idea what to look for or how to make it perfect. Luckily, I couldn't have found a more friendly, professional, and genuine place to go to make a purchase of that magnitude. Bernie and his staff at Ethan Lord are top notch. They take great pride in everything they make and truly want it to be a special thing. The ring that they designed and made on site is something that even a clueless guy like myself was really blown away by. I also went there to get the wedding bands done and of course received the same care and attention to detail. I have recommended and will continue to refer all of my friends and family to Ethan Lord. Pros: Professional and Genuine more

Beautiful location, great designers, & amazing ring! 4/19/2009

Bernie was the best! He is a great designer that really listens to what you want and then gives great suggestions on how to make it even better. Also, the Ethan Lord design process was so high tech and amazing - it allows you to see your creation before actually casting it in metal. Also, the turn around time is very fast - I was able to get my ring in under 2 weeks. And lastly, their new location is very elegant - not like those other shady locations on jewelers row. If you want an original, one of a kind engagement ring - Ethan Lord is the way to go! Pros: High tech design process with amazing designers! more

One of the best experiencess ever 4/14/2009

Working with Bernie helped make this one of the most memorable experiences ever. After a brief conversation, Bernie was able to find the perfect diamond, setting, and at the price I was looking for. Every detail was met to perfection and Bernie is always there for you every step of the way. Casting House and Ethan Lord is a perfect combination and my fiancee is throughly impressed and all her friends love the ring. I will continue to shop there and recommend them highly as one of the best jewelers in the chicago land area. Pros: Great service and caters to your every need Cons: none more

Fabulous Jeweler 4/14/2009

Both my engagement ring and wedding band are from Ethan Lord. My husband found them through a friend and we have both been very pleased with the jewelry and the service. I absolutely love my engagement ring and Bernie was fabulous to work with when deciding on a matching wedding band. He works very hard to create the perfect piece for your needs and budget and is never pushy. It addition, both my husband and I have had our rings re-sized free of charge and the turn over time is incredibly fast. I can also drop my rings off at any time and have them professionally cleaned free of charge. I will definitely return to Ethan Lord for all my future jewelry purchases and would recommend to friends and family in a heart beat. more

The only jeweler to which I refer friends. 4/13/2009

I had an exceptional experience at Ethan Lord. I purchased my wife's engagement ring and our wedding rings there. It was the fifth jeweler in Chicago I had been to, and the experience was much different than the others. When I told Bernie what I wanted, that was exactly what he showed me, rather than trying to up-sell me or convince me that I would be happier with a larger, albeit lower quality, stone. The final designs matched exactly what I wanted. Best of all, the price quoted was fair and there was no need to haggle. My wife can stop by and get her rings (which she loves) anytime. I have referred several friends to Ethan Lord since, and all have had very positive experiences. Pros: Service, Fair Pricing, Education Cons: None. more

Your Stress Ends Here 4/10/2009

I recently was referred to Ethan Lord Jewelers. I was a novice heading into the experience of buying an engagement ring. Larry and his team took me through the step by step process it takes to create a unique and custom ring. They took the entire process into their own hands and allowed me to sit back and relax! They created the perfect, custom to my ideas, design and ring for my fiancee. This allowed me to make my engagement plans and not stress about a thing. My fiancee does not stop talking about it and her girlfriends can't get enough of it. I have a handful of friends/family that are also in the early stages of engagement talks with their significant others. I have strongly recommended Ethan Lord and their partner company the Castinghouse. Thanks again for the great experience and perfect ring! We will definitely be back for future jewelery purchases. Pros: impeccable service, great atmosphere Cons: none more

your search should begin & end here! 4/8/2009

I haven't stopped raving about this place since I found them! So, I began searching for my diamond and met with with probably 10 different jewelers, and was completely skeptical about my whole experience (the used-car-salesman type, the arrogant/condescending type, the cheesy/trashy type, the dated/dingy type), when I walked by Ethan Lord. I entered without an appointment, and it was like a breath of fresh air! Larry worked with both me & my fiance to find my extremely unique stone, and design my own version of a classic but contemporary setting. He was even able to get it done in record time for my visit to the future in-laws! We are absolutely getting our bands from here, and have already designed a perfect match to my ring. Their ability to custom design whatever you want, and have it made on site with their parent Casting Company is unparalleled. We couldn't have been happier with our whole experience, and agree with everyone else who says they've found their jeweler for life! Pros: exceptional service, one-of-a-kind, fair prices, quality more

Great Custom Engagement Ring 3/31/2009

I was hesitant when I saw that all reviews were 5 stars. However, I met with Larry and he helped me create the perfect engagement ring. It is 100% custom and unique. My now fiancee loves it! I will definitely recommend Ethan Lord to all of my friends that are considering engagement. Thanks again Larry and good luck in the future! Pros: Great service, quick turn around time, great price! Cons: none more

Great service and product 3/18/2009

I recently purchased an engagement ring from Ethan Lord. Great experience! They were very informative and I couldn't have been happier with the finished product. I would defintietly use them again and refer my friends. more

Fantastic experieince at Ethan Lord 2/24/2009

A very close friend of mine recommended Ethan Lord to me when I mentioned that I was going to start looking at engagement rings. I took the tour of their facility on Jewelers Row and also was provided an hour long education session to narrow down exactly what I was looking for. There was not the least amount of pressure from the staff and their entire boutique is top notch. About a week later I picked everything out for the final product and it was done in a couple of days because the custom shop is right next door. I did not even go to another place based on their service and aggresive prices. I am extremely pleased with the final product and more importantly so is my fiance, she gets compliments all the time. Bernie, Larry, and Andrea are fantastic to work with and I would recommend them to anyone. more

Best Service on Jewelers Row 2/11/2009

Larry and his team are incredible. They can make you anything you want and won't stop until the piece is perfected, I'll go back for all my jewelry needs. more

Another Happy Customer!!!!! 2/4/2009

Ethan Lord helped me with one of the most important purchases in my life. They made me feel at ease while trying to decide on an engagement ring. They took my ideas and made it a reality! They took the time to educate me on what to look for in a diamond...making me an informed consumer. Not only did I come away with a beutiful ring, but I left with a jewelry vendor for life! Great job Ethan Lord Jewelers.... Pros: One on One customer care Cons: None more

Great Service and Quality 1/31/2009

Ethan Lord was referred to me from a family friend. Larry was very knowledgeable of the options I had for my fiance?s engagement ring. I received quality service and felt very comfortable asking questions. The ring that I helped design turned out beautiful and my fiance loved it! We were both very happy with the results and the quality of the diamond. I was very impressed with the pricing and I would recommend Ethan Lord to anyone looking for quality and service. more

Jeweler for life! 1/30/2009

My fiancee was referred to Ethan Lord and was ridiculously happy with his service and working with Larry and the team. I got a chance to meet Larry as well and his laidback approach is so inviting and comforting. I absolutely am in love with my engagement ring, it is perfect and although we just ordered our wedding bands from Ethan Lord, I have absolutely no doubt that they will be perfect. Ethan Lord is definitely going to be our jeweler for life! more

Amazing Atmosphere and Great Service 1/29/2009

Ethan Lord was recommended to me by a close friend. I had a new setting made for my engagement ring and I absolutey love it. The team at Ethan Lord made me feel comfortable from the second I walked in the door and their suite is beautiful. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Pros: Service, Price, Quality more

No other jewelers compare to Ethan Lord 1/28/2009

I couldn't imagine a better experience buying an engagement ring and wedding bands. Larry and team at Ethan Lord are fantastic. They are down to earth, honest, fair, friendly....they make it easy for you to do business with them. I don't think any other jewelers compare. Private client service at wholesale prices. I'm a customer for life! Pros: Service, price, quality Cons: None more
