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.

Eric is the man! He was very excellent with service, I got a great price and my fiancée is very pleased with her ring. I would recommend to anyone!

I can't say enough great things about Ethan Lord. I had the pleasure of working with Erika to re- design my engagement ring. She is beyond knowledgeable and kind, she listened to everything I had to say in regards to the redesign and together we came up with the perfect ring. I get compliments all the time about my ring. I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out.

Love these guys.  We bought our diamonds and designed our engagement and wedding rings with Devin, and have been working with the team on all our jewelry and diamond projects since.  They make us feel special every time we come in-- and I wouldn't trust anyone else like I do them.

We can't say enough good things about working with Danny at Ethan Lord. Finding a jeweler was perhaps the one vendor selection that my husband and I were most unsure about. We hardly know anything about pricing, quality, and most of what would go towards making an informed decision... We are very thankful for all of Danny's work and highly recommend him.

Ethan Lord (specifically Andrea) is amazing! I recently got engaged and my fiancé purchased the ring from a small jeweler in California. When I needed to have sizing beads added, Ethan Lord handled my request quickly (same day!),,. I feel confident that we'll continue going to Ethan Lord for all my Chicago jewelry needs.

I visited Ethan Lord with a very specific custom engagement ring design in mind. Eric provided very useful advice... The price was very competitive and the included lifetime warranty and maintenance ensures the longevity of their jewelry. Overall, the experience was very pleasant and I would highly recommend Ethan Lord to anyone looking to create a custom engagement ring.

Eric is a lot of fun to work with and very knowledgeable about wedding jewelry- diamonds, engagement rings, and wedding bands... He is not pushy and does a great job of educating those who are new to the engagement shopping... For the experience of the high end Michigan Ave shops without the price, start at this convenient location and ask for Eric!

The best jewelers! Especially Erika. She helped my husband design my engagement ring, and I can't imagine a more gorgeous ring! We went back to her for our wedding bands, and they turned out beautifully... We will absolutely be going back to this team for any future jewelry purchases!

Eric is the absolute best! He made my engagement ring and my wedding ring. Also made my husband's wedding band. No better place to go for custom jewelry, or any jewelry for that matter. Don't bother with anyone else, Eric is the best of the best!

Dan is the man! He helped us design a custom engagement ring over two months, many sketches, and even more emails. Not only is he insanely talented, he legitimately cares about your situation. Ethan Lorde and all its employees were committed to helping us find the perfect ring... Ethan Lord is the place to go, and if you work with Dan then lucky you!

Eric was amazing in helping me find a gorgeous diamond that, while not necessarily the biggest, was truly unique and something that my now-fiancee would truly love! He put it in the perfect setting and I was able to discreetly sneak away to pick it up while she was shopping nearby, and I became engage the following morning! At Ethan Lord's, I feel like I designed the perfect ring, saved money (actually stayed on the low end of my intended budget), and made a few new friends! I look forward to visiting them again in future years for fashion jewelry.
