 Are Your Gemstones Certified By Gia To Be 100% Natural, Not Lab Created?


Each of our gemstones is certified by GIA, the Gemological Institute of America, a renowned authority in gemstone grading and identification. This certification ensures that our gemstones are of high quality and 100% natural, not lab-created. You can see the GIA certificate scan in the listings. You will receive it with your piece free of charge ($120 value).

 You can also copy and paste the GIA report number and check its authenticity on the GIA website: https://www.gia.edu/report-check-landing. Here's a direct link to the GIA website for your convenience: [Direct_URL_to_GIA_website]. There, you will see the color picture of the stone in your piece with a detailed description.

 If you paste the phrase Certified Alexandrite Jewelry into a Google search, you will find us at the top of the first page of an organic search. We did not pay a penny for ads to achieve this result. 

 The sophisticated Google Algorithm organically placed us in the top position in this category, recognizing the traffic, visitors' purchases, and positive testimonials. 

 Our gemstones are not only 100% earth-mined but also exclusive. We buy rough stones directly from the mines and cut and polish them, ensuring their unique beauty. We also guarantee that our Alexandrites were not treated in any way.

 Can You Resize The Ring I Buy?

 Yes, of course. We understand that finding the perfect fit is essential. That's why we offer a hassle-free resizing service. Simply mention the size you need in the notes section during checkout, and we'll take care of the rest.

Why Your Prices Are So Low?


We buy stones from the mines, and our talented designers and goldsmiths make our jewelry ourselves. Therefore, by buying from us, you cut out many intermediaries. 

 Usually, a gem dealer buys from mines and sells rough stones to the cutter. The cutter then sells polished stones to the jewelry manufacturer, who sells the jewelry to a jewelry store. Finally, the jewelry store adds its own markup to cover the overhead and gain profit.

 Each adds its profit to the final price. As a result, the price is, on average, four times higher if you count the markup of gem dealers, manufacturers, etc.  That is why a well-established jewelry store needs high-end alexandrite jewelry they call us, make a payment, and we send the piece to them. 

 They find our prices below wholesale because, apart from the streamlined production, our business is online. We don't have to pay expensive store rent, staff salaries, health insurance, state taxes, etc. We pass all these savings to our clients, ensuring that you get the best value for your money. 

 Also, it's important to note that the stones already set in our jewelry are from the last stock when prices were more or less reasonable. The prices went up significantly because the last alexandrite mine was closed a few months ago, coinciding with a colossal inflation of labor costs, transportation, etc. These market conditions have led to a significant increase in the prices of gemstones, making our current prices a great bargain. 

 The mines have dried up, and it will be much harder to find gem-quality large new stones in the near future. As soon as our stock runs out, we will be forced to increase the prices like everyone else is doing now. Another reason for rising prices is that savvy people of means invest in precious stones and metals because they see how unprecedented money printing results in the rapid devaluation of the US dollar. 

 That is why they seek ways to save their wealth by investing in things whose values will only increase. And increased demand always pushes prices higher, especially when too many dollars are chasing too few real gems. That is why the piece you buy is also a great investment, as its price will increase tremendously in the coming years. It is worthy of becoming a family heirloom, passed down through the generations.

 What Is Your Warranty Policy On Your Alexandrite Rings?


 For your peace of mind, we offer a complimentary six-month warranty against manufacture defects on all of our jewelry. The warranty covers defects and damage to the metal or stone during manufacturing. If you have an issue with your jewelry, please write and deliver it within 30 days. It is the buyer's responsibility to post the ring back and ensure that it is delivered to us. If a warranty covers the defect, we will repair or replace the jewelry free of charge. Please note that our manufacturing warranty excludes coverage for wear and tear, accidental damage, loss of gemstones, damaged gemstones, product loss, or theft.

 If a warranty covers the defect, we will repair or replace the jewelry free of charge.

 Repair or service performed by a jeweler other than The Alexandrite will void the warranty. Normal wear, activities, or trauma can affect all fine jewelry. This is especially true for rings since hands are actively used and subject to daily pressure. Our manufacturing warranty excludes coverage for wear and tear, accidental damage, loss of gemstones, damaged gemstones, product loss, or theft. 


 Can You Resize Any Ring In Your Collection?


 Yes, we can easily resize any ring to any size you need. Our skilled craftsmen will carefully examine the ring, ensuring that the design and integrity of the piece are maintained. This service is provided to ensure that your jewelry fits you perfectly. 


I Want To Buy A Matching Piece Of Jewelry To The One I Bought.


If you don't find the matching piece on our website, please send us the SKU number of the piece here (it's right above the price). We will email you to let you know how long it will take to make the matching piece for you. 



Are you able to email additional pictures?


 We hire a professional photographer to take high-resolution pictures of the jewelry piece as the human eye sees it in normal daylight. Unlike many other sellers, we never photoshop the pictures to artificially enhance the quality. 

 The photographer takes many pictures from different angles so that you can see the item from all sides. We also provide a video to make it even easier to see the piece in motion.

 Jewelry photography, especially gemstone photography, is extremely difficult. It requires a lot of talent and experience to show jewelry exactly as it is seen by the human eye. 

Such pictures are costly, and any new ones will incur additional costs.


Do You Sell Loose Gemstones?


 Yes, we do. Please let us know what weight, clarity, color saturation, and color change you need and in what price range, and we will email you a quote.

 Please leave your email if you would like to be informed about new collections and offers from The Alexandrite by email. You can unsubscribe at any point via the bottom of each email. As stated in our Privacy Policy, we guarantee that we will NEVER share your personal info with anyone. If you have any other questions, please write to us at support@thealexandrite.com.

 We will reply within 24 hours Monday to Friday.
