About Us

Since 1987 C A Jewelers has been helping customers find the perfect piece of jewelry for every occasion. Large or small, custom or traditional, CA Jewelers will always deliver the perfect jewelry piece to you.


C A Jewelers started with modest beginnings in 1987 by Mr. Lam and Mrs. Lam and a small booth located in the heart of Chicago’s jewelry district.  With a strong work ethic and lots of perseverance, Mr. and Mrs. Lam dedicated their lives day and night to the success of the store.  Along with their hard work C. A. Jewelers was founded on three simple but enduring beliefs; Quality, Trust, and Value.  Each one had a special meaning to Mr. and Mrs. Lam and all their customers.

Today these firm beliefs and unrivaled dedication have paid off.  In fact, it has become the cornerstones of CA Jewelers, helping C A Jewelers become one of the most trusted jewelry stores in Chicago.   With loyal repeat customers and thousand of diamonds sold, C A Jewelers looks to expand into the Internet space, carrying forward its customer oriented in-store policies directly to customers throughout the world.

CA Jewelers is still a family owned and operated business with a complete full service jewelry store in downtown Chicago.  This allows us to provide the personalized service and attention you would receive at a small store but with the quality control and production of a large operation.

Mr. and Mrs. Lam would like to wish their customers well and a heartfelt thanks for all the great support they have received over the past 20 years.  And with their continued success, CA Jewelers is looking forward to the next 20 years serving their satisfied and loyal customers.

Please contact us, or come in to our Chicago showroom for all your jewelry needs.  We look forward to seeing you.
