Serving the Chicago Area since 1949
Lustig Jewelers, a family owned business founded in 1949 by Ted and Eleanor Lustig, was originally located at 1219 Clark St in Chicago, Illinois. It began as a department store carrying men's and ladies' apparel as well as appliances. Four years later, a move to a larger location at 1256 N. Milwaukee Ave in Chicago allowed for the addition of a fine jewelry department. By the mid 1970's, the primary focus was the selling and servicing of fine jewelry.
Dan Lustig joined full time in 1981, and by 1986 opened a new location in Vernon Hills at Westfield's Hawthorn Shopping Center. On September 1, 2006, Lustig Jewelers moved to our current location in the Aspen Pointe Shopping Center in Vernon Hills.

Exemplary Customer Service
From the beginning, Lustig Jewelers dedicated themselves to providing exemplary customer service with fair pricing. So, in 1982, Eleanor Lustig coined the slogan "Come in as our customer and leave as our friend".
