Lab Created Diamonds

From Chicago’s Favorite Jeweler

Real and Beautiful

Lab created diamonds have the same properties of mined diamonds. The difference is in how they are made: lab created diamonds are made in a controlled environment by people, mined diamonds are naturally occurring. We can source lab created diamonds in any shape, color, size and clarity.

Excellent Value

Lab created diamonds are a wonderful way to get a big bang for your buck. Clients often choose lab when they want a bigger diamond that still has excellent cut, color and clarity. We're happy to show you lab and mined diamonds side-by-side, so you can decide for yourself.

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...

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.

Erika is an absolute pleasure to work with! With the help of Erika and my Fiancé, we were able to create the engagement ring of my dreams! Because of our wonderful experience, we are now in the process of designing our wedding bands! We cannot wait to see how they turn out! Thank you Erika and the Ethan Lord team

My fiance got my engagement ring with Eric at ELJ, and we went back for wedding bands. We love Eric! He shoots it straight, is very knowledgeable, and trustworthy. You can go and see Eric without any fear of being talked into nonsense about diamonds and jewelry! I recommend to everyone!

Shopping for wedding rings he was a great and fun experience. The first day we visited we were offered wine as a congratulations for our engagement. After that Lauren was very helpful and friendly through the whole process. We end up with a custom ring and had no issues with sizing or any part of the process.

Recently purchased engagement ring from them. Erika was fantastic and super helpful with putting together the custom design. Her knowledge on diamonds was super help with picking on the perfect stone. She showed me such a great range of stones in my budget, any of which would have been awesome, and I found one that ticked all the boxes... I would 100% recommend them to anyone looking for jewelry!

The customer service was excellent from our very first appointment to look at engagement rings. Our wedding rings turned out beautifully and we had the fortune of working with Erika for our wedding band consultation. I would absolutely recommend Ethan Lord to my friends and family.

I came in knowing absolutely nothing about jewelry.. Danny was AWESOME to work with. He walked me through everything I needed to know. They had an unbelievable selection! I would highly recommend this place to anybody feeling a little lost in their ring buying experience.

There's no other place to even look at when it comes to engagement rings. The warm greetings from every employee to the detailed and friendly consultation from Eric, there's nothing I would change about my experience with Ethan Lord.
