Here’s Why Lester Lampert is Chicago’s Coolest Jewelry Store

From conversation-starting statement pieces to the boldest of engagement rings, there is no other place to go in Chicago than Lester Lampert.


Located just off the Magnificent Mile on Huron Street is a true gem in the world of jewelers. Unlike many of the jewelry retailers you’re familiar with, this fourth-generation, full-service jeweler’s signature lines can’t be seen anywhere else.

One of the main differentiating features of this 97-year old, family-owned jeweler is that the Lampert’sand their talented teamare always looking to create art in jewelry. The family is involved in every step of the creative process; the boutique occupies a 5,000-square foot, four-story building, and nearly every piece is created onsite from start to finish.

Here you can peruse the magnificent selection of baubles in the shiny showroom, work with the team to custom design a one-of-a-kind piece, and even get your family heirloom restored in the design studio. The best part? All custom work is done on-site, in the state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. After a visit to the salon, you’ll soon see why Instore Magazine, a publication for the jewelry business, has named Lester Lampert America’s “Coolest Jewelry Store.”
