    Since I was 10 years old, and my father brought me to Tiffany’s to see the new Alexandrite (45 years ago when only Tiffany sold them), I’ve been in love with the unique color-changing ability of this most beautiful and surprising ring! I am now much older and for umpteen years, I have had in my head, my perfect wedding ring.
    It would be a 3-4 ct. true, not simulated (purple) Alexandrite set in Platinum with smaller diamonds around the main Oval or Cushion cut Ring, with additional smaller Alexandrite going down the sides of the thick shank. This has been one of my favorite fantasies since childhood. Thank you for carrying them!

    Ever since 1 was a little girl, my father took me to Tiffany’s to see the first Alexandrite rings available in the US. I was thunder-struck. NEVER have I seen a green COLOR-CHANGING stone and my dream ring became a 3-4 ct. Alexandrite, surrounded by smaller diamonds, with small Alexandrite down the sides of the thick Platinum shank.
    I hope I don’t die prior to receiving my dream ring. It will be ONE of a KIND!

    I love re-visiting the Gemvara site multiple times per week to look at new jewelry, and to dreamily gaze at my wish list. Although I have yet to have made a purchase from the site, every experience has been enjoyable, and I can’t wait until the day that my boyfriend and I can finally afford our engagement rings which we have found and saved on this site! Thank you for having such a beautifully crafted selection, and for letting the customer personalize each piece!

    I love the website – clear, clean pictures of your jewelry. Some of the pages, however, are a little “busy”. Just a lot going on and scrolling a mouse across any of the thumbnails opens up yet another menu. If there is some way to stream-line this – just seems like I could get lost in the website easily, particularly if I’m looking for 1 specific item. Overall though great design – modern & clean.

    I did the survey. You guys are awesome. Just bought a necklace as a gift for my girlfriend. It arrived today, packaging box is very impressive.

    I absolutely love my custom made gift ring. I was able to choose my stones, their placement, the metals, the engraving, a custom size that wasn’t in the drop-down menu and was even able to change the placement of my stones after my purchase when I changed my mind about the order I wanted them in. I used the Dahlia ring I created as an engagement ring for my girlfriend and she absolutely adores it. The packaging was awesome: a large detailed box, a certificate of authenticity, care instructions and a personalized thank you note from Gemvara. There was even a polishing cloth sent out a week later with another personalized note inside thanking me for being a customer. I’m sorry that I was unable to provide any ways I thought you could improve here at Gemvara as my experience was far greater than I expected. The jewelry is exquisite and the perks (free engraving, 101 day returns, one year warranty, etc.) were a perfect touch. I wrote a detailed review of my ring and was able to provide personal photos of my personalized piece. I have had and continue to have excellent customer and craftsmanship service here at Gemvara. Thank you again for all of your hard work!

    every piece of jewelry is aimed to please and is well worth the price and the wait.

    I was skeptical, I thought the price and ring were too good to be true.
    Then I received the package, it was wrapped like a present, and the ring was BEAUTIFUL! It was just a man’s wedding band but the quality and the detail were amazing!
    I used to work in a high end jewelry store and didn’t think anything fantastic could be delivered for the price I paid, however, Gemvara people proved me wrong! I will buy everything I need from them and tell all my friends! You guys do phenomenal work. Truly AMAZING!

    What a fun experience creating your own personal style of jewelry! Purchased my wedding band here and it is more than I ever expected. I will not see my ring coming and going on other fingers! It’s unique and beautifully crafted. I looked everywhere for my own personal style. No where out there like GEMVARA. The prices are great!

    When I went onto GemVara’s website I was excited that I could design our wedding rings and make them unique and lovely. For my engagement/wedding ring I designed 3 different rings and put them in my Wish List. When my fiance asked me about rings, I directed him to my Wish List and he picked out one of the designs! It was a Win-Win situation! I also designed his wedding ring and our rings are beautifully matched using the same stones (garnet and amethyst) with the rose gold. They are, indeed, one of a kind which makes them VERY special to us. I love going to your website and will be returning to design other jewelry for gifts. Thank you, Artisans, for your craft and precision! Thank you, Beth Bankler, for your awesome customer service and personal touch!

    Love the Gemvara website. Have purchased 4 pieces of jewelry from the site and have had nothing but great experiences from start to finish. The customer service at Gemvara has completely blown my expectations away. Love that each piece can be customized to what your looking for. Would recommend Gemvara to anyone!

    My Husband and I choose the rose gold, London blue topaz and diamond ring together. This is my Christmas gift from him. I usually get a ring for every Christmas and big wedding anniversaries .So after 34 years I have quit a few. Styling this ring together after many different chooses was a lot of fun. I received my ring the day promised. And it is beautiful. Well made, the London topaz is a wonderful rich blue sea color. We’re more than pleased with the ring and sales staff that assisted us. We will be ordering from Gemvara again.

    My thanks to all of you. The ring is very pretty, just what I wanted for my friend Joan. Her adoptive mother (long story) died in January of this year and had a large diamond ring as a part of her estate but she did not want any one who knew her to get her ring so we had to dispose of it as a part of the estate.

    Joan and I have known each other since grade school (we grew up on the same city block and went to the same grade school & junior high.

    Joan is not materialistic but was hurt by the feeling the provision in her adoptive mother’s will created. So, although this ring is not the same and because Joan wears only very modest jewelry I wanted to get her this ring & her husband agreed with me.

    You have been very good about keeping me informed of your progress in preparing and shipping the ring. Your customer service is excellent

    love the quality of your products, and wanted REAL emeralds, not ”lab created” which the chain stores offer. The workmanship is excellent, and the customer service people are extremely helpful and friendly and never get a ”robot” answering your phones–kudos to your company. Georgine Clark
