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’s—and their talented team—are 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.”
If you’re looking for the perfect gift, here’s our top two picks:
Transform your old favorite or inherited heirlooms into modern pieces
This is the newest addition to their Extreme Makeovers line. The Lampert team will take the customer’s center stone and add it to their necklace complete with diamond clouds and naveLLes to complement the center stone.
Mix, Match, and Attach
Lester has done it again by creating a bracelet that can transform into many different looks. By mixing metals—yellow, rose, or white gold, and insert options—the sky is the limit with this elegant bangle bracelet. You decide if you want “CazzueLLe” elegance, or blingy, by either using a hammered gold insert, or one with diamonds or colored stones.
