Two Jewelers Take a Stand

A short while ago, we were approached by a coalition of NGOs hoping to get retail jewelers to speak up on behalf of investigative journalist, Rafael Marques de Morais, whose book Blood Diamonds: Corruption and Torture in Angola, features detailed accounts of torture and human rights abuses in Angola’s diamond sector. We have known Rafael for many years and […]

Eleanor in Blue

Earthwise Jewelry® Eleanor blue sapphire ring

We create numerous variations on our Eleanor engagement ring making it suitable for rounds, ovals, cushions, princess, and emerald cuts. But somehow, adding color just makes this ring extra special. Our Eleanor, set with a blue sapphire center surrounded by Canadian diamonds, is one example. Colored stones. No two are exactly alike. Just like your […]

From Our Workbench- Diamond Halo

Simply graceful. A 100% conflict-free Canadian diamond surrounded by a sparkling halo of more Canadian diamonds and set in a recycled platinum handcrafted setting made here in our Chicago workshop. She’s sure to say “I do!”

December’s Birthstone- Blue Zircon

We love blue zircon. It’s pretty. It sparkles more than diamond. And it’s very affordable for a natural gemstone. While we will gladly set this month’s birthstone in any of our Earthwise Jewelry settings, we feel that our Ursula ring, offset with Canadian diamonds, is a great setting for this steely blue fair trade gem. Available in […]

From Our Workbench- Ivy

We’ve always liked our classic Ivy engagement ring. Inspired by nature with an organically shaped shank with vine-like details, we also offer a version with small Canadian diamonds set on the sides to make this ring extra special. Perfect for a diamond or any colored stone you wish. Perhaps something green like this beautiful peridot to […]

From Our Workbench – Tsavorite Ma Su Su

Spring is finally here! Or is this summer? Here in Chicago we seem to go right from snowdrifts to heat waves in about 36 hours. But in celebration of nature (finally) turning green we have this stunning tsavorite set in our Ma Su Su setting. We love tsavorite here at Leber Jeweler. More socially responsible […]

Going Green!

We really enjoy when clients send us photos of their new Earthwise Jewelry rings! This one is of a custom vintage inspired aquamarine ring we designed for Sam & Angela. It seems Sam proposed on their trip to Florida and Angela said “Yes!” They emailed us this shot of the engagement ring when they were […]

New From Our Workshop – Oblio

Spring is here and wedding season is upon us. One of our newest ring sets is a matched pair of Oblio diamond wedding bands. A lifetime commitment deserves the best. Perfect for his & his, hers & hers, or his & hers. They all work.

Sometimes Simplicity is Best

“Any darn fool can make something complex; it takes a genius to make something simple.” ― Pete Seeger One of our first Earthwise Jewelry® designs, Emma. Paired with the Mobius wedding band. Available in 18k, platinum, or palladium.

We ♥ Hearts

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and what says “I love you” more than actually saying “I love you?” Well, nothing actually. But this ruby and diamond heart necklace is a close second! Available in recycled 18k white gold, 18k gold or platinum, and pavé set with Canadian diamonds framing a beautiful fair trade (and non-Burmese!) […]
