Surpassed all of my Expectations!! 1/1/2012

Well, Shari didn't know but before I approached her establishment for a quote, I had visited and had over 3-5 quotes on a particular diamond ring I was looking for. By far she blew the competition out of the water, I was able to save $800-$900 on the ring I wanted. more

Fantastic Customer Service 9/22/2011

I am the type of person that researches and researches before making a big purchase. CHIDEXX and the reviews did not disappoint. more

Still Getting Compliments!! 7/15/2010

In 1996, we were looking for an engagement ring. We had been to all the name stores, coming out feeling uninspired and rushed. One day, I stumbled into Shari's store back on Wabash called Studio C. She spent an hour educating me to the angles of diamonds. What I found out that day was that the most cost effective way and the most fun is to pick your own diamond! I brought Ben back to the store and our journey began. Pros: Unique & Beautiful Work, Knowledge, Selection Cons: None! more

Chicago Diamond & Jewelry Exchange & Bjeweled 4/14/2010

I discovered the Chicago Diamond & Jewelry Exchange(CHIDEXX) while doing research on loose diamonds for my girlfriend's engagement ring. I compared retail stores, the diamond wholesalers on Jewelers Row, and internet sites such as bluenile. Just based on price alone, CHIDEXX beat them all! Once I found the diamond I liked online, I sent an email and received a prompt response from Shari/Kevin(the owners). I set up an appointment and was told that she would bring in that diamond and others of similiar quality for me to choose from. I arrived and was shown a variety of diamonds that fit within my budget. Shari and Kevin were very helpful and attentive and helped me stay on target with my budget. I know that I got the best bang for the buck when it comes to the center stone I selected. Pros: Everything! Great Prices and Customer Service! more

Bjeweled 3/29/2010

My fiance and I learned about Bjeweled through a referral from my sister and her husband. Shari is an AMAZING designer and truly an expert in her field. Pros: Excellent customer service, exquisite work & superb prices more

Like a perfect diamond, BJeweled is flawless! 1/7/2010

With the help of Kevin and Shari at BJeweled, my fianc? was able to create an engagement ring that reflected our love and my style. With the selection of a large jewelry chain and the creative and artistic flair of a smaller jewelry store, BJeweled offers the best of both worlds. Glass cases present clients with an impressive jewelry portfolio, while Kevin and Shari provide a welcoming atmosphere complete with cocktails and conversation. Their expertise and dedication to each client ensures every piece they design and sell is personal and unique. They know their clients and they know jewelry. We will always go to BJeweled for our jewelry, from this first promise to each other, to our wedding bands, anniversaries, and special occasions to come. Look no further, BJeweled is flawless! Pros: Unbelievable design complemented by seamless service. more

Couldn't Be Happier 1/7/2010

I found Shari and Kevin online because of the great reviews. I actually bought a diamond online and took it to them to have an engagment ring made. When I walked in Kevin greeted me right away and made me feel very comfortable for someone who had no idea what they were doing. He asked me a few questions to understand what I was looking for. I then met with Shari to design the acutal ring. It was obvious she knew what she was talking about but also listened to me and helped pick out the perfect ring. I was able to get my ring completed in the short time frame that I needed and at an incredible price. They were very honest about costs and I had no surprises. I have since been back to have the ring resized at no cost. Pros: Personal service, knowledge, price more

Priceless!! 12/24/2009

After years of looking at, literally, over hundreds of thousands of rings, I FINALLY came to the decision that my perfect ring didn't exist. So many rings that I liked, even some I loved, but I never found ""the one"". My husband and I are very unique people with an even more unique relationship, and in all honesty, I needed the ring to symbolize what are relationship was, is and will be, without a ""mass manufacturer"" telling me what specific aspects of a ring symbolize. Having too many ideas on what I wanted, being a person that over-analyzes everything, and very hard to please, I have to say that Shari is the most patient and helpful business person I have come across. For my ideas that weren't practical or possible, she graciously let me know why, and always offered a different solution. Absolutely fantastic on ""reeling me in"" on all of my ideas, and translating it into exactly what I wanted and needed. It's fulfilling to know that the ring I proudly wear, is completely personal and perfectly symbolizes who my husband and I are as a team, and no other person should ever be able to wear that. The experience of being able to create my interpretation of a symbol of a lifetime commitment is truly PRICELESS. Well worth the drive from Wisconsin, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. I cannot thank Shari and Kevin enough. Pros: PATIENCE, service, price more

Shari you delivered 8/27/2009

The Bjeweled store is an inviting boutique. A Gold Coast experience with diamond internet pricing. With neighbors like Bulgari and Tiffany they have to be good. Shari goes toe-to-toe with the best of the best. Shari's style is casual and thorough. Shari is a very talented designer. Her design style is head to hand. Pros: Comfortable, Price, Personal Service, Great Ideas more

Shari has No Design Competition 8/27/2009

We found Shari through the Chicago Notre Dame club. Shari does business the ND way with integrity and ethics. She is the consummate professional. Her diamond presentation was clear and informative. She armed us with the information necessary to make a good diamond decision. She let us walk and think about the diamonds presented. No pressure. We did the standard Wabash walk. There wasn't anyone that competed with Chidexx. Chidexx provides transparency and simplicity. Her design skills are unparalleled. She aided our idea development. The collaborative design process was satisfying. Shari brings a strong balance of architecture and art. I take great pride when folks stop my fiancee to look at her engagement ring. Great stuff. Pros: Unique Designs, Excellent After Sale Service, Comfortable Cons: Notre Dame football in the window. lol more

Shari is One of a Kind 8/27/2009

Shari is the Best Designer 8/27/2009

We found Shari by walking by the Bjeweled Store on Walton Street. Really cool layout. Store was busy with people having fun. Shari was discussing options with a client and allowed us to join the conversation. She didn't try to sell anything. Shari listened to needs and helped develop a diamond profile. She used our diamond profile to bring in diamonds for our review. We did our shopping on Wabash. No one touched the diamond price. More important, Shari took the time to listen to our ring design ideas. Shari enhanced our design ideas with interesting options. The finished ring was exceeded our expectation. Shari is a real artist with fresh ideas. I can see why she is invited to exhibit her designs. The service after sale is great. Pros: Great Design Talent, Great Listeners, Nice Folks more

Great service, great prices 8/26/2009

The service stood in stark contrast to any other place I tried to shop. Kevin and Shari took the time to explain diamonds in detail, to show stones in different lighting, point out their defects, etc. To top this, their service was prompt and their workmanship of good quality. Finally, the price for the same quality diamond and the same certification was about 10-20% lower than any other jeweler, which could mean a difference of over a thousand dollars or in some cases, even more. Pros: Thorough and transparent service, amazing prices more

Superb Customer Service 8/25/2009

Shari and Kevin are truly committed to providing their customers with excellent customer service. My husband purchased my engagement diamond from The Chicago Diamond and Jewelry Exchange, and Shari designed the most perfect ring for me. We definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a seamless process and an enjoyable purchasing experience. Pros: Seamless purchasing process, excellent customer service more

Stunning style and quality at an equally stunning price! 8/24/2009

My husband researched diamonds prior to embarking on his engagement shopping extravaganza. Shari & Kevin were by far the most helpful and memorable. I was fortunate that my husband asked me to help design my engagement ring after he had met with Shari and chosed several center stones. Shari and Kevin made our selection and design process something we tell everyone about. My engagement ring and wedding band are absolutey true to my husband & mine's preference, taste and style. I have gotten compliments daily since I put the engagement ring on. The wedding band made to accompany the engagement ring really enhanced the already brilliant look. We returned to design my husband's wedding band and are just as pleased, receiving many many looks and compliments as well. If you know what you want, Shari & Kevin make it happen. If you don't know what you want, they help you figure it out in an appropriate and non-pushy way. They are all about the customer, which will make us return over and over for our jewelery wants and needs. Pros: one-on-one consultation, large selection, unique style more

Kevin and Shari walked me through the whole process and were very patient. Shari designed a absolutely beautiful engagement ring for us. The quality and value received here could not be touched by any other jewelry store I went to, and I did a lot of research. Shari also custom made the wedding band and it is stunning.

The Place to Go for an Engagement Ring 8/23/2009
