History & Philosophy

It was 1930. Words like old world craftsmanship were personal qualities that Hermen Begeman of Germany brought with him, to a fresh new American land.

The vital point of a jewelry purchase is not entirely What you pay but What you get for your money.

In 1930, he opened his first store on Archer Avenue in Chicago’s Brighton Park.

He later opened stores at 63rd and South Kedzie and 79th and Cicero in the Scottsdale Shopping Center. The business then expanded to the southwest suburbs located in the Bremen Towne Mall of Tinley Park and currently is located in the western suburb of Willowbrook at Route 83 and 63rd Street.

Herman Begeman’s standards of quality continue through his family. For more than three generations of customer families, Begeman’s has meant that special diamond engagement, that eye appealing birthday gemstone, that memorable anniversary gift and so much more.

Today, many sophisticated techniques help maintain quality and meet growing customer needs for the widest range of select diamonds, precious gems, fine stones, pearls and watches.

All of our valued customers receive the personal and professional care that has been a continuing goal since 1930. We are here for our customers today and will be here for them tomorrow.

We joined the Willowbrook neighborhood in 1988 and have been a trusted member of the community for 26 years.
