How the Jeweler Was Made

Mike Gale, the president and bedrock of Gale Diamonds Chicago, has been in the jewelry and precious metals business for 40+ years. He went from costume jewelry to gold, and stuck with diamonds because they offered something magical. To Mike, diamonds aren't just to be worn on a ring or necklace, they are an interesting item to be viewed and looked at. He brings this idea to each customer, into each appointment. Instead of using fancy pictures or technology, you get to look at real diamonds through a real loupe. With your education and lessons from Mike, you'll be an amateur gemologist in no time at all.

How the Storekeeper Was Born

Mike Gale's business sense comes from his father, who ran a successful furniture store through tough times. His first job was working for his father selling furniture. He learned many things, but the most important was to sell a quality product at a great price, and treat the customer right. From his humble beginnings, he set out to work for himself, and his entrepreneurial spirit lives on today at Gale Diamonds Chicago.

Are We the Jeweler for You?

We think your choice of jeweler is an important personal decision. When you need jewelry, it often coincides with important and often busy times in your life. In the age of shopping malls and chain stores, it can be hard to find the right custom jeweler that you just know you can trust when you need to make an important decision, like how big you want the diamond in your engagement ring. If the Gale Difference is any one thing, it's that personal touch. It can't be described in words, but if you give us a call and set up your appointment you can experience it for yourself.

For over 25 years we have been custom crafting beautiful gold and platinum jewelry. We have always emphasized customer service and accepted nothing less than perfection and it is easy to see why our customers recommend us to their friends and family. Before the internet, most of our business was word of mouth the old fashioned way. Even in these technological times, we still like to keep things simple, so the business is based on the same values and level of service that it was 25 years ago.

What Our Customers Have to Say:

"The engagement ring he produced for me absolutely blew my girlfriend's mind! Her expression was worth every penny."

"He stayed late on a Friday night to meet with me ... Great personal touch at a very fair price."

"I've gotten a lot of compliments on what a good job I did picking out a ring, and I owe it all to Mike."

"Mike makes you feel comfortable in his office and doesn't come across salesy like other diamond guys."

What If You Saved Time and Money at a Chicago Jewelry Store?

Many people associate Jewelry Stores with busy shopping malls and ritzy, expensive name-brand shops. While you may find what you are looking for in those places, save yourself the trouble. Why look through hundreds of pre-made pieces that don’t live up to your expectations or settle for something that doesn’t quite fit your tastes or budget?
