About our location
Visit our newly expanded space in Jewelers Row, and make yourself at home. Expect a comfortable bar and relaxed environment where you'll enjoy an engaging, educational experience.
Our home, the Mallers Building, is an historic Art Deco structure that houses nearly 200 jewelers. We are proud to be a part of the community and a favorite jewelry destination for discerning clients since 2004.
Ethan Lord is backed by one of the nation's top jewelry manufacturers - they're in the same building - and we've got relationships with the best diamond dealers and craftspeople in Chicago. Fine jewelry is made here, which is why we can offer free lifetime maintenance and competitive pricing.
There is valet parking and limited metered street parking. The Washington / Wabash CTA stop is conveniently located front of us (Pink, Purple, Green, Orange, Brown lines).

Erika listened to what we wanted, showed us what we asked for, and answered our questions clearly. No hidden agenda just wanting to do the best for the customers. I would give her 6 ⭐️ if possible
I had a great experience with Erika. She really did her research before my appointment and catered the diamonds we looked at to what I told her was important for me. She was patient, friendly, and taught me a lot about ring/diamond details I hadn't thought of.
Best experience I could have had designing and purchasing an engagement ring. Danny was fantastic to work with, patient, and diligent. After helping design, he sourced stones until we found the perfect ones and was a pleasure to work with.
I highly recommend! I was pretty nervous about the process, but Eric's relaxed vibe and being able to clearly explain how everything works really relieved my stress. My favorite part is that after I initially told Eric my budget, he never tried to up-sell me on a more expensive product--he stayed within my range at all times.
Lauren is amazing. I had a great experience at Ethan Lord; highly recommend. Driving to the city is absolutely worth it for EL!
What a wonderful experience I had at Ethan Lord. I was able to customize my wedding bands to my engagement ring. Lauren assisted me every step of the way and was incredibly courteous and helpful throughout the entire process.
My consultant Eric was fantastic! He helped us design a very special engagement ring to replace one lost many years ago. The new ring was a way to celebrate our 37 years of marriage. Thanks Eric. I love my ring!
I had an incredible experience working with Lauren and her team at Ethan Lord Jewelers. Lauren was very patient, attentive, reassuring, and caring... The proposal went great and seeing my fiancé's face light up when she saw the ring, I know I made the right choice to go with Ethan Lord.
Of all of the other jewelers we had talked with Danny was most insightful, helpful, patient, and took the time to educate us on the elements of diamonds as much as possible... I would give it 6 stars if I could...
I had a few appointments w diamond dealers in Chicago. I had Eric as a rep and he was the most professional and knowledgeable. Follow up was amazing and overall amazing to work with.
Every interaction we had was stellar from the 1st time we walked in to the moment we received the ring and thereafter. The vibe you get is that they are truly excited to see you and everyone enjoys being there.
