Julia Hadi Jewelry
2301 N Clark St, Chicago, IL 60614
This cute little store is located at Clark and Belden (on the Belden side) one block south of Fullerton. I came across it on my way back from the Zoo Lights last night. The store is run by an Asian women named Julia and she was great. I was looking for a present for my wife and Julia showed me many unique items.
What's interesting is that every item in the store is designed by Julia and hand made at her workshops in Jakarta and Bali. I got a gold cross pendant with diamonds but she has everything from engagement rings and pearl necklaces to Balinese silver.
I don't claim to be an expert on jewelry, but the prices here are amazing. I think it's because she makes everything herself and cuts out the middleman.
If you want something different and are tired of going to the large chain jewelry stores only to be there 10,000 customer to buy that same piece then check this store out.
Friendly service, great prices and you get to deal directly with the designer. How cool is that?
