Jewels by Alex owns and operates the web site www.jewelsbyalex.com (collectively the “site”), and offers customer-friendly policies designed to afford you a most secure and safe shopping experience. BY USING THE SITE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
Product Availability and Pricing
If you’re interested in a piece of jewelry that is currently on back order, call us and we can tell you when the item will be back in stock. Sometimes with the volume of orders we receive, an item may go out of stock before we are able to post a notification on the Site. If this happens, we will contact you directly to discuss possible options.
Data, including prices, may be inaccurately displayed on our site due to system or typographical errors. While we make every attempt to avoid these errors, they may occur. We reserve the right to correct any and all errors when they do occur, and we do not honor inaccurate or erroneous prices. If a product’s listed price is lower than its actual price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping the product or cancel the order and notify you of such cancellation. If the order has been shipped, you agree to either return the product or pay the difference between the actual and charged prices. Our prices are also subject to change without notice. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 844-999-2539.
We may negotiate prices on our products from time to time.
When you order a loose diamond, we ship it to you with the accompanying diamond grading report (also called a diamond certificate). These grading reports are detailed documents created by diamond grading experts at one of two highly-respected diamond laboratories – making it very expensive to replace a diamond grading report. Because of this, we require each diamond grading report to be included with each returned diamond. If you do not include the diamond grading report with your return, you will be charged a replacement fee of $250.
To keep our prices low, we do not allow comparison buying. Comparison buying is the act of buying several items with the intent of keeping the one you like best and returning the remainder. This causes undue restocking and inventory overhead and can be very costly. To confirm the quality of a jewelry item, please contact us at email@example.com or 1-844-999-2539, and we would be happy to help you make your choice. We can email more photos to you for comparison & even go as far as video call for in depth look face to face with ourselves and the comparing items.
You may use the Site for legitimate shopping purposes only. You may not harm the site in any way or otherwise use the site in any improper manner, including, but not limited to, hacking into the site’ systems, spoofing or facing e-mail headers or slowing or stopping the functionality of the site.

Restrictions on Use of Materials
Product Descriptions – Product Images
Jewels by Alex makes all reasonable efforts to display the products listed for sale on the site as accurately as possible. However, the colors we use, as well as the display and color capabilities of your computer monitor, will affect the colors that you actually see on your screen. Jewels by Alex cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of any product color, texture or detail will be accurate. In addition, Jewels by Alex does not warrant those product descriptions or other content are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error free. If a product offered by Jewels by Alex is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.
Should any pricing or copy errors occur on this or any third party web site operated by or on behalf of Jewels by Alex, we reserve the right to correct. We strive to maintain an accurate price representation for all products represented herein. Price discrepancies, as the result of technical or human error, will not be honored.
Policy on Ethical Sourcing
At Jewels by Alex, we only purchase diamonds through the largest and most respected suppliers who, like us, proudly adhere to and enforce the standards established by the Kimberley Process, an international system that polices the trade of diamonds to ensure they are from sources free of conflict. You may find more information about this process at http://www.kimberleyprocess.com/
Jewels by Alex is committed to ensuring that the highest ethical standards are observed when sourcing our diamonds and jewelry. Because of the reported human rights abuses in Zimbabwe’s Marange diamond district, Jewels by Alex will not purchase or offer diamonds from that area. As a responsible member of the diamond and jewelry industry, we are working with our suppliers to ensure our consumers receive only the finest goods procured from ethical sources.

Information on our Site
At Jewels by Alex, we make every attempt to ensure that our online store is as accurate and complete as possible. In order to give you the opportunity to view our products in great detail, some products may appear larger or smaller than their actual size in our photographs; and since every computer monitor is set differently, color and size may vary slightly.
Our objective is to provide you with as much information and detail about your prospective purchase as possible so that you can see the beauty and shape of a particular item. In compliance with industry standards and FTC regulations, Jewels by Alex states that carat total weight in all purchases may vary 0.05 carats from stated weight.
On the site, we provide the measurement of our products based on our manufacturing specifications. Slight tolerances may be accounted for based on finishing during the manufacturing. Width tolerance on machine made wedding bands of 0.20mm is allowed. Cast manufactured rings can vary slightly more.
For gemstone and pearl measurements, a tolerance of 0.25mm is allowed.
For diamond jewelry set with multiple diamonds, we provide the minimum total carat weight for the piece. Color and clarity grades are expressed as either a minimum or an average depending on the number of diamonds. If stated as a minimum, all diamonds within the piece are at or above the stated quality. If expressed as an average, collectively the quality is equal to or exceeds the grade stated.
