Our Story

Looking for an independent jeweler who both sells and services jewelry?

You have found us.  Sandberg Jewelers is your 3rd generation jeweler in Village Crossing. We are conveniently located 1 mile west of the 94/Edens Expressway. Stop in and take a look at our merchandise and you’ll quickly see why we’re Chicago’s jeweler of choice.

Sandberg Jewelers, your local 3rd generation jeweler, first opened its doors in 1919. Philip Sr. and Frank Sandberg, brothers, started on Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago, next to the Portage Theater. Movies were the entertainment of the day. Ironically, Sandberg Jewelers is again operating in close proximity with a movie theater right here in Village Crossing. Sandberg on Milwaukee would provide service to customers lining up to enter the theater. With streetcars rumbling up and down Milwaukee, the business thrived and the world changed.

In 1956, Philip Jr. and his bride, Saundra, moved the business to Irving Park. Philip and Saundra continued to grow the business and raise 5 children. Always active in community and charity affairs, Philip and Saundra helped to build the business through many economic climates.

The internet became important for Sandberg Jewelers in 1997 when sandbergjewelers.com was up and running. Karen and Susan, the two eldest children, took over the business in 1998. In 2002, they relocated to Village Crossing. Then, in 2004 Susan and her husband, Francois, became the sole owners of Sandberg Jewelers.

An amazing expansion happened at Sandberg Jewelers in 2012. The entire store was completely updated. The showroom was enlarged to over 4,000 square feet, the selection and service grew along with the new look. Even the Repair Department greatly expanded.

Sandberg Jewelers continues the tradition of knowledgeable and friendly service, wide selection, and great prices. Specializing in diamond jewelry, Sandberg Jewelers also carries gold and platinum jewelry, colored gemstones and watches. A full repair shop on the premises offers everything from ring sizing to custom designs.

When you stop in at Sandberg Jewelers, you will find 3rd generation Sandbergs on site, and even a few 4th generation learning the business, as well as several knowledgeable staff ready to assist you. With 100 years of business, you’ve probably shopped with Sandberg Jewelers or have a friend who has. Not only is Sandberg Jewelers a third generation jeweler, but many of customers are third and fourth generation clients. People tend to stick with a good thing when they find it.

On behalf of the Sandberg Family, we would like to thank every single customer who has shopped with us, bragged about us, and placed their confidence in us as their trusted family jeweler. We would not be where we are today without you! We are humbled and excited about this wonderful milestone, and we look forward to another 100 years!
