It’s one of the biggest and most symbolic purchases of your life. You want an engagement ring that reflects the ethics and values you two share.

At Leber Jeweler, we love ethical gemstones. Especially those that are truly unique.

A Tribute from US Senate floor

We are both honored and flattered that Senator Dick Durbin recognized our work in support of responsible sourcing, human rights and the environment on the Senate floor on February 28th. We believe that taking a stand on any of the subjects we tackle and engaging where we can is the least we can do, both as […]

July’s Birthstone: Ruby

From our Workbench- Ma Su Su Three Stone

  Ma Su Su is one of our most popular designs, with its modern, clean lines and low profile. But adding Canadian diamond sides really dresses this classic up! The Ma Su Su Three-Stone ring is shown here with a 3/4 carat blue sapphire in the center, but works great with any fair-trade colored gemstone or one of our conflict-free Canadian […]

Handcrafted Jewelry: Why Well-Made Matters

Every Earthwise Jewelry® piece is made here in Chicago in our workshop. Most companies can’t make that sort of claim. In the world of jewelry, the pride of craft has fallen by the wayside as every company seems focused on being the biggest not the best. So they shift their production “somewhere else.” There’s too […]

Ma Su Su Pavé wedding set

One of our most popular designs is the Ma Su Su engagement ring. A simple, elegant setting that lays close to the finger. A great ring for someone with a more active lifestyle. Works wonderfully with either a Canadian diamond or a fair trade colored gemstone as the center stone. When worn together with the […]

The setting, shown here in 18k yellow […]
