Nice selection of engagement rings! I also got a great price for an old gold chain that had. Thanks.
Avoid – They have big signs saying if you don't wear it sell it - I took some items to be appraised and they lowballed me by close to 2K - went to Old Orchard and got fair price. Owner is a scammer. Staff depends - older woman with white hair is very nice and honest, but younger blonde will lie to you.
Stay away from this place! Prices inflated, and customer service is terrible. Owner is not friendly either. – The store does not make any attempts to try and build a relationship with its potential/current customers. Owner and sales staff are rude, and not welcoming. They wouldn't look at you or even try to sell the item when you were looking at them! Also, they didn't think that I spoke any English or knew what I was looking for in jewelry; how wrong were they! I knew this when they tried to speak to me slowly and in a very harsh, loud tone. Prices are extremely high on jewelry, and not marked with labels. If you are looking for a good reputable jeweler, a fair price for jewelry and somewhat decent customer service from the owner and its staff, then Cottage Jewelry is not the place for you. Just because it is located in swanky Evanston near the downtown area does not make it special from its competitors. There are plenty of other places to shop for jewelry, such as Tiffany's. Although Tiffany's jewelry never goes on sale, I decided to purchase form them based on reputation of customer service and quality of goods.
Evanston jeweler is know for its diamonds, watches and vintage pieces. – In Short
North Shore shoppers stop at this Evanston jeweler for diamonds at wholesale prices, watches, pearls and other precious stones. Specialty pieces range anywhere from a vine-like wedding band encrusted with diamonds by Jack Kelege to engagement rings by Steven Kretchmer with tension settings so it appears the stone is floating. The business also custom designs pieces for that one-of-a-kind gift.
