I found a style that I like, but I want it with a differet shape/size gemstone. Can you do that?
Sorry, we would if we could, but each setting is designed to hold one specific size and shape of gemstone.
Is your jewelry gold plated or real gold?
We sell only 14k solid gold. We have no gold plated products.
Can the diamonds in a certain piece be replaced with a different gemstone?
Sorry, the diamond settings are designed to hold only diamonds.
Do your gemstones look as good as they do in your pictures?
We make it a priority to use high quality stones in all of our jewelry, and we try to make our pictures match as closely as possible. In many cases, the gems in the jewelry you receive will actually look better than they do in the pictures. You can expect the following:
Garnet - Eye-clean (no visible inclusions without the use of a magnifying device). Color is a deep burgundy red. Smaller stones (4mm and less) are a fiery red-orange.
Amethyst - Eye-clean (no visible inclusions without the use of a magnifying device). Color is a vivid dark purple.
Aquamarine - Eye-clean (no visible inclusions without the use of a magnifying device). Color is intense silvery blue. Smaller stones (4mm and less) are slightly less blue, but still show a good amount of color for their size. We recommend a yellow gold setting for small aquamarines as it helps to bring out their color.
White Topaz - Eye-clean (no visible inclusions without the use of a magnifying device). Color is completely clear. White topaz is used as an affordable replacement for diamond.
Emerald - Mostly clear, with a low amount of inclusions. Color is a bright grassy green. Inclusions are expected in emeralds, with only very small emerald sizes being relatively inclusion free.
Ruby - Mostly clear, with a low amount of inclusions. Color is a vibrant red with a hint of hot-pink.
Peridot - Eye-clean (no visible inclusions without the use of a magnifying device). Color is bright green-yellow.
Sapphire - Eye-clean (no visible inclusions without the use of a magnifying device). Color is a dark blue with a high amount of visible color.
Opal - Highly polished finish. Opals are white with a high amount of color flashes in every color of the rainbow.
Citrine - Eye-clean (no visible inclusions without the use of a magnifying device). Color is a warm orange similar to the color of honey.
Blue Topaz - Eye-clean (no visible inclusions without the use of a magnifying device). Color is vivid sky blue.
Tanzanite - Eye-clean (no visible inclusions without the use of a magnifying device). Color is medium blue-violet, with blue being the dominant hue.
Black Onyx - Highly polished and completely opaque. Color is jet black.
Tourmaline - Eye-clean (no visible inclusions without the use of a magnifying device). Color is medium to deep pink and magenta.
Lab Alexandrite - Flawless (lab created). Color is blue-green in sunlight or fluorescent light, and turns pink-purple in incandescent light.
Lab Sapphire - Flawless (lab created). Color is royal-blue. Compared to genuine sapphire, a lab sapphire is very similar, but the color is brighter and more saturated.
Lab Emerald - Flawless (lab created). Color is forest green. Compared to genuine emerald, a lab emerald is darker in color and much more brilliant due to the lack of inclusions.
Lab Ruby - Flawless (lab created). Color is bright red, with some tones of hot pink. Compared to genuine rubyd, a lab ruby is brighter in color and more brilliant due to the lack of inclusions.
