Engagement Ring Chicago

Read more about Diamond District

Thinking of diamond engagement rings in Chicago? Find the best place to buy an engagement ring, where to propose, and how to get the best prices.

Chicago – the beautiful windy city home to the Cubs, The Bean, and their signature deep dish pizza. With museums, Broadway shows, and a bustling foodie scene, this mega metropolitan is unlike anywhere else in the U.S.

When it comes to engagement rings, Chicagoans go big or go home (and on that note, well done Cubs for finally winning another World Series!). Local jewelers are seeing a trend of bigger, pricier rings. Chicagoans prefer to keep it simple and elegant, with the most popular style being the classic round brilliant solitaire. Chicagoans also don’t compromise on quality, with many people preferring ideal cut, colorless stones.

Chicago houses one of the nation’s best diamond districts in the Loop area. And for those on designer budgets, you have your pick of Cartier, Tiffany, Bvlgari, and Trabert & Hoeffer on the famed Magnificent Mile.

Top 3 places to propose:

Whether you’re a hardcore romantic or nature lover, here are 3 places to propose for an unforgettable moment:

  • Promontory Point: This little peninsula on Lake Michigan has arguably the best view of the Chicago skyline. Pack a romantic picnic, stroll along the lakefront, and pop the question during sunset.

  • Navy Pier: The top of the Ferris wheel makes for a fun, private proposal for the kids-at-heart. Or take a walk through the beautiful Crystal Gardens and find a secluded spot. There are also several restaurants with a lake view if you’re more traditional.

  • The Ledge at Willis Tower Skydeck: This is the perfect, heart-pounding setting for an equally heart-pounding moment. Get down on one knee as you’re 103 floors above ground on a completely glass balcony. You’ll also get the best views of Chicago.
