I had some time today and went to sweet earth to look for a gift for a neighbor. They had the perfect 3 gifts for her and 5 more that I needed and today I will go back for some other stuff I found for another gift I need to give!! Lots of wonderful ideas for that special someone! That is they way with Sycamores downtown so come and take the time to visit,bring a good friend and ship and look but most of all enjoy buying those special gifts you are proud to give and have great service and wonderful people wait on you!!!

Owners are so knowledgeable & so nice. They definitely give a small town feel to their store. Rich is a gemologist and I went in there to look for stones & jewelry. I've shopped around to crystal/rock/mineral shops and their store is priced very well, love this place!

Thank you so very much for having taken the photograph and for sending it; I just now printed it and will include the photo in our safe deposit box.  You made each piece as beautiful as new, and please believe me, I noticed immediately that you had cleaned and polished each with tender care, and I appreciate that so much.  I am wearing the diamond solitaire and the gorgeous anniversary ring that you so expertly repaired and restored.  Stan would truly be happy to see that it is done and that I am able to enjoy it again.  You and your shop and all your staff have always made each visit there a pure pleasure.  Thank you again for everything, Rich.

For YEARS Sweet Earth Jewelry & Gifts has been my "go-to" and favorite store in Sycamore. Rich and Rosanne and their staff are definitely all about "customer service". If I cannot find what I am looking for, Rosanne will pull out one of her many catalogs and help me create just the right gift. If I break a piece of jewelry, even if it wasn't purchased there, Rich always repairs it by giving it 100% effort. But yesterday I realized why I really love going there. Rich and Rosanne are just as nuts about the BLACKHAWKS as I am!!!!! What a fun time I had chatting with them about our favorite sports team. They both are friendly and fun people.Drop in and browse. I guarantee you will leave a happy human!!!!

Love this store! Full of all kinds of great gifts, jewelry (the co-owner is a licensed gemologist & does jewelry repair), great bead selection, classes, cards, toys, and he & his co-owner & wife are really nice people to boot. If u dont live close its a nice drive & worth it!

Amazing store! I've watched the evolution of this local landmark since it was just a dusty five and dime. To see what the Paras have done with community minded vision and hard work is inspiring. Boasting the largest area selection of Melissa and Doug toys and puzzles, beads and one-of-a kind jewelry, eco aware gifts and goodies, silver charms, adjustable bangle inspirational bracelets, not to mention... SPARTAN WEAR, why wouldn't you shop there! Thanks Rich and Roseann! Keep up the good work.

I discovered Sweet Earth about 4 years ago. It has a small jewelry and engraving section however their gift section is where they really stand out.

They seem to rotate items through, not only to match the season, however throughout the rest of the year as well.

Everything from cards, to statuettes and other Gifts are there. The selection is not as big as say a Hallmark, however the quality is definitely higher and they appear to source much of it locally .

They also have Sycamore High school related items and gym uniforms available and the largest puppet section I have seen, which I will utilize before Christmass to get something for my Granddaughters.

The name is a little confusing and I asked. Turns out it was the original name, then changed to a Ben Franklin and then in the last 5 or so years ran a contest with customers, probably through the local paper, to choose a name and this is what they chose.

I will be frequenting this store.

Thank you DeKalb County for voting us the best place to get a birthday gift!
