    • Erin O'Leary
    • A year ago, my fiancé went to dimend SCAASI for my engagement ring and with the help and guidance from Shannon, he was able to find the perfect ring! Not only was Shannon knowledgeable and great to work with, she was most importantly personable which made our experience a very positive one. Recently, we decided to go back for both of our wedding bands and we are so happy that we did! Would highly ...more

    • I had a great experience with Shannon here with our wedding bands. She kept us informed throughout the process as the rings were being made, and the staff were a pleasure to work with. They even beat their timeline estimate by a few days! I would recommend working with these guys.

    • The buying experience at dimend SCAASI is always great. I bought the engagement ring from them. And then, my wife and I have our wedding bands custom made by them too. She's still excited about her engagement ring and the wedding band. Now, it is our first anniversary and I am at dimend SCAASI again to pick another present for my wife. Top quality with great customer service to fit whatever b ...more

    • I chose Dimend SCAASI based on the great Yelp reviews and my first experience there. You just know when you find the ONE! I went to LOTS of jewelers searching for the perfect wedding band and I had a super specific price point and look I was going for. Dimend SCAASI definitely nailed both requirements! I worked with Shannon who really helped me create the exact band that was in my head. They broug ...more

    • I have purchased multiple pieces from Dimend Scaasi and the experience has been excellent every time. They really listen and work hard to tailor solutions that fit both your needs/desires and budget. Buying diamonds or other expensive jewelry can be intimidating but Isaac and his team make it much less stressful with their straight forward, customer centric approach. I have shopped around but fou ...more

    • My Fiance started his search in the summer of 2016, and found Isaac and dimend SCAASI. He had a wonderful experience talking to Isaac. He took the time, sat down with my fiance several times and understood what he was looking for. Never tried to sell him anything or pressure him. Isaac and Stephanie both assisted Nate in his final design of the ring and were incredibly helpful and patient with the ...more

    • I'm very happy with Isaac. I've dealt with various jewelers before so I have some experience in what to expect, and I have to say that I am very pleased with the way he runs his business. He spent a good amount of time with me choosing the diamond for my wife's engagement ring, which I ended up buying from him, and he also assisted me with getting the exact setting I wanted, which is a designer on ...more

The first place I visited had limited selection and I wasn't satisfied with the service of the staff. I visited dimend SCAASI and saw a wide variety of diamonds and rings, including the lab grown diamonds. I loved the diamonds and the ring settings that they had. Most importantly, the s ...more

    • Great experience, service, and engagement ring! Shannon exceeded all expectations when it came to navigating the nuances of purchasing an engagement ring. Most importantly, though, my now fiancee and her family/friends love the ring. Very very pleased with the service and ring! Thank you guys!

    • Really fantastic customer service. I had a small issue arise with an item I had purchased from Dimend Scaasi almost ten years ago, and even after those ten years, they were willing to work with me to correct the issue and make sure I was happy. Thanks for going above and beyond, you guys!

    • dimend SCAASI was the only jeweler that I felt comfortable purchasing my engagement ring from. Isaac is extremely knowledgeable and very strict when it comes to selecting diamonds from his suppliers. The best advice I can give to anyone shopping for a diamond is that the cut quality of 2 different triple excellent GIA rated diamonds can be VERY different. DO NOT just buy a triple excellent rated ...more

    • If you buy anything from Dimend Scaasi, get your jewelry independently appraised. They sold me an engagement ring with a garnet as the center stone and the owner certified that it was a ruby. If you're not familiar with the difference between those two stones, it's quite substantial in both price and durability. We only found out after the stone showed wear and one of their employees said that' ...more

Shannon provides exceptional service with none of the sales pressure. Each time we work with her she takes good notes about our situation, finds our likes/dislikes, and then offers valuable insights based on our situation. ...more

    • I've bought engagement, wedding and aniversary rings here. If we were big into blind I'd be back for more for sure. The low pressure personal sales atmosphere is spectacular. I was there once when a watch rep happened to be there and he started selling me the minute I walked in the door. I said no thanks and two minutes later heard Isaac (owner) telling him off to the side that that's not how ...more

    • I cannot recommend dimend SCAASI highly enough. I came in as a walk in for an engagement ring, and even though Shannon was waiting on an appointment, she walked me through the process and some settings to consider for a scheduled appointment. During my scheduled appointment they were very helpful to a completely diamond illiterate person such as myself. Shannon was informative, explained everythi ...more

Shannon made me feel at ease right away with her knowledge and honesty. We've since purchased wedding bands from Shannon and once again they were so accommodating getting the rings to fit just right. Any jewelry I buy in the future will com ...more

    • We had a great experience with dimend SCAASI. All sales agents were conscious of the budget provided, and provided great tips for modifying the setting and stone to save money, or just improve the overall appearance. They were also very honest and helpful when it came to choosing a diamond, and what clarity, color, carat was the best value. Also have the option for lab made diamonds, which is gr ...more

I had the fortune of working with Shannon, who was extremely friendly and helpful walking a novice like me through the process of selecting a diamond and ring. With Shannon's help, we designed a ring that my wife loved. Fast forward 5 years later and I was trying to upgrade my wife's ...more

    • I now insist everyone I know to go nowhere else than here. Though I don't have to convince them once they see the ring. All her friends will go nuts and will be jealous. I chose to stop in dimend SCAASI based on it having the best reviews in the Loop, and they even exceeded the 5/5 star reviews. I had done a lot of research, and visited a fair amount of other jewelers in the Loop and I always fel ...more

One I can remember is a computer company in Seattle and the other is dimend SCAASI, where I purchased my fiancées engagement ring.

    • When I had an idea in my head and I needed help bringing it to life I worked with Stefanie at Dimend Scaasi to create a custom design. The "Jaclyn" is beautiful because it is simple and elegant in it's design which keeps the focus on the center stone but also has a clean, modern aesthetic that gets noticed. The slim band is flattering and the claw shaped prongs add just a touch of edge. I couldn't ...more

Everyone there knows their stuff and works with you to find what you're looking for to fit your budget and preferences. Shannon was super hel ...more

Isaac and his team at Dimend SCAASI understand the significance and importance of the engagement milestone. They also understand what the engagement ring symbolizes to the buyer and person receiving it. With that in mind ...more

So it was only a mild suprise when we walked out nearly ...more

She says it's the most beautiful ring she's ever seen. I spent a lot of time learning about diamonds and going to different places. Dscaasi is the one place where it didn't feel like I was being sold something I couldn't afford or didn't want. And I ...more

The store itself is modern and inviting - from the second you walk in, you feel it's the place you should be to ...more

Shannon sat down with me and walked me through all the various trade-offs and what I should look for in a rock, and she didn't bat an eye when I told her my admittedly-small budget. I left with twice the diamond I thought I could afford with spectacular color and cut, and stayed within my bu ...more

I gave them a ring design, they produced the perfect ring. I dealt with Shannon who was great to deal with. She communicated very well with me and wasn't the least bit pushy. The price of the ring ended up being slightly less than the bottom o ...more

Even if you're outside of the Chicago area (I flew there from Florida), it is worth the trip. Just make sure you make an appointment a few weeks in advance and have an idea of what you're looking for. Shannon will do the rest of the work. You won't f ...more

    • Dimend Scaasi is the place you want to buy your engagement ring. I took my fiancé to a range of places to get a feeling of what she liked before I went to Dimend Scaasi to get her the ring. I highly recommend you get a good feeling for the ring she wants before you venture off to buy one on your own. Having experience some other Jewelers in Chicago before going into Demend Scaasi was nice caus ...more

    • I bought a ring for my fiance in August 2010. The overall experience here was great. Isaac, the owner, was very helpful and supportive throughout the process. He was never pushy, either for a sale, or for a larger stone. He was also very knowledgeable, and we were eventually able to arrive at what I felt was a very fair price for a ring we both (me and wifey-to-be) love. Being able to des ...more

    • They were okay. I was pressured very early to just plunk down a bunch of cash and be done with it. I don't think 45 minutes of their effort obligates me to buy their stuff, and spend a bunch of $$$. I am glad I went elsewhere to ultimately find what I needed. If you are trying to learn about rings, do so online first (i.e. blue nile). Expect any of the places like diamend scaasi to show yo ...more

    • Whomever you're buying a ring for (as I'm of a liberal mindset), you're probably nervous, a little stressed, and have a lot on your mind. I will tell you this, I run on high octane, and carry a lot of anxiety, but Isaac and crew made picking out a ring completely enjoyable, and a really fun process. They're not like other jewelers that make you feel bad that you're not spending enough money ... ...more

They showed us some settings, but then eventually asked if we could come back later so that they could devote proper attention to us. Fine. We made an appointment to come back in an hour and a half. During that time, we wandered around other places on jewelers row and perused. ...more

I have one of his AWESOME engagement rings and every time I go back for the 6 month check-up, I ask how many have been made since mine (tension style). Only 10 were made so far (and in 4 years), so if you are looking for a one of a kind ring that will stand out this is the pl ...more
