Get your engagement ring from christopher duquet!
I can not emphasize enough how much I loved my experience working with Christopher Duquet Fine Jewelry and the amazing team of people who work there! My now husband and I got my engagement ring there and from beginning to end, they were amazing. Villi was so gracious and helpful, kept our budget in mind, while helping me find the ring of my dreams. Then, to top it off, when we decided to elope on a moments notice while the ring was still being made, Villi worked her magic, got the ring finished in time and overnighted it to our destination elopement in Montana to arrive the day before our wedding. I would recommend Christopher Duquet to anyone and everyone looking for an engagement ring, anniversary gift, or just something special. They are one of those rare establishments who actually seem to care, aren't just trying to push product, and have a class and integrity that is not easy to find. Plus, I feel like I was able to get something very unique, not the cookie cutter rings the big box stores try to push!Sent on 08/04/2020

Excellent to work with
Had a great experience working with Villi and the team at Christopher Duquet to design an engagement ring for my fiancee. I had a specific vision in mind and Villi did a tremendous job of bringing it to life while also staying within budget. From sketching out a design to picking a stone and producing the final product, I couldn't have been more satisfied with Villi's partnership and the overall experience. We will definitely be going back for our wedding bands as well!Sent on 10/21/2018

Restyle your heirloom ring here! I got a good value on some old gold that I brought in, and ended up not spending a dime of my cash monies on the gorgeous restyling of my mother's engagement ring.Sent on 01/17/2018
The people who work here are real artists. I love that you can see their workbench when you walk in.

My husband designed my engagement ring with Villi. She was able to take the image and symbols he had in his mind and turn it into a beautiful ring. I have received countless compliments on the ring design.Sent on 07/17/2018
Months later we both went back to have our wedding bands made and once again Villi craftily drew and created my husbands wedding band, and two simple bands to go on either side of my engagement ring.
Every time we went into the store we experienced nothing but top professionalism and kindness from Christopher, Villi and the rest of the staff. I would highly recommend Christopher Duquet to anyone.

I went to every jeweler in Chicago but ended up back at Christopher Duquet. I’m very glad I did. They are very detailed and do amazing work. We will be back for the wedding ring and future pieces as well. New customer for life. Thanks, again!Sent on 11/25/2017

I am beyond happy with our rings. Villi and Terryn are a joy to work with. I receive endless compliments on my ring. They are kind and efficient and make you feel as though your business matters. We will never buy jewelry anywhere else!!!Sent on 06/21/2014

The search will stop here because Christopher Duquet WILL create the ring you have been searching / dreaming / and hoping for!Sent on 06/15/2013
My fiancé did his due diligence but as much as he had researched engagement rings, there was one problem - I have a very specific sense of style and knew the ring for me would have an antique heirloom feel, an Edwardian sensibility, and perhaps a dash of art deco design.
This ring was nowhere to be found in this day and age.
To the rescue came Christopher Duquet Fine Jewelry. What we were looking for was one of a kind, and Villi and Christopher were able to take our vision and turn it into a reality.
We explained to Villi what we had in mind and she immediately brought out a few examples from their showcase of elements we could incorporate into the ring. We immediately felt at ease - she really "got us."
Christopher, a true professional and artist, designed the ring collaboratively with us and the final product is stunning and original.
We loved it so much that we returned back for our wedding bands.

I chose to get my Engagement ring designed at Christopher Duquet because they custom make every setting, and had many vintage-look unique setting styles that I loved. I also wanted to give my business to a local store, rather than a big national chain. You will probably pay a bit more here than at a national chain, but the quality is worth it, and you will end up with a design that you won't see on tons of other women. Service was good as well. Not at all pushy, and respectful/willing to cater to our somewhat limited budget.Sent on 07/05/2012

My engagement ring and our wedding rings all came from Christopher Duquet. We liked that it was a local small business and decided to check it out. When I was looking at engagement rings they kept notes about what I liked and showed them to my husband when he went in to pick out a ring.Sent on 07/12/2011
Our wedding bands were also designed for us. His is stainless steel and very light and comfortable. Mine was made with a small notch to fit next to my engagement ring. Everyone we worked with was extremely helpful and it was well worth the cost for what we ended up with.

On a recommendation from his brother, my husband visited Christopher Duquet twelve years ago while searching for my engagement ring. After that first visit, he (and thus we!) became customers for life. Buying a piece of jewelry from Christopher is a collaborative process, and he and his team's creativity, patience, and ability to understand what you're looking for help bring it to reality. Even if you are not quite sure what you want, Christopher's ideas are endless, and he will help create something you will love.Sent on 11/14/2013
I recently bought my 5th piece from Christopher. I wanted to create an everyday ring using my son's birthstone. My husband and I went in to talk with Christopher, discussed some of our ideas, and he and came up with a design that I never would have dreamed of, all while keeping our budget in mind. Within a week he emailed me renderings of the ring. From there he (patiently!) worked with us to tweak the design to make it just right for me.
Four of my five pieces are rings that I wear everyday, and each one is worthy of being an heirloom piece. The careful design process and consideration that goes behind each piece makes them that much more special. I highly recommend visiting Christopher Duquet. Everyone we have sent has been just as happy as we are, and we will certainly be back.

My husband purchased my engagement ring here, and we decided to purchase my wedding band here as well. I love both of the rings, and they complement each other well. Very friendly and helpful staff.Sent on 01/27/2013

I am one of the few women on Earth who does not like jewelry so when it came time to pick out an engagement ring my fiance knew it would be difficult. We decided to work with Christopher Duquet because of the beautiful examples of vintage style rings on his website and after reading the positive reviews on yelp. Well let me tell you - none of the praise has been exaggerated. What a wonderful experience.Sent on 10/04/2010
I wanted a sapphire engagement ring so they ordered a number of stones in our size,style and price range and I chose the one I liked most. From then on my fiance took over and worked with them to design the rest. I get so many compliments on this ring. It has beautiful engraving in leaf patterns all over it and every detail is so finely done. We went back for wedding bands and I will continue to visit for any other custom work I ever need. The service was wonderful as well. I can't recommend this store or the people who work there highly enough!
