Are all of your pieces unique?
Yes, each piece of jewelry is handmade by Alex; therefore, there may be slight variations with each piece. There are no two gemstones exactly alike, making each piece from Alex Hossick Collections one of a kind.
What is the length of guarantee for my new piece(s)?
We stand by the quality and workmanship of our jewelry. If your jewelry needs repair, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to assess your piece(s) and provide an estimate. Jewelry will be automatically excluded from servicing if it has been worked on by an outside jeweler. Structural defects will be covered 100% by Alex Hossick Collections.
What metals and gemstones do you work with?
We only work with high-quality, enduring materials from precious metals to genuine gemstones. We concentrate on producing sterling silver (both high polish and oxidized) and 14k yellow and rose gold; however, please email email@example.com if you are interested in other metals such as platinum and 18k yellow, white, and rose gold.
Can you explain more about the type of metals you work in?
925 sterling silver is an alloy made of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. The copper is mixed with the pure silver to enhance the strength of the allow since pure silver is very soft.
Oxidized sterling silver has the same chemical composition as sterling silver but has been treated with a chemical causing a blackened “patina” on the metal. The blackened surface is then hand polished away to show the shiny silver relief work against the dark crevices, thus highlighting the texture and design of the piece.
14k yellow gold is a mix of pure gold, pure silver, and copper. The percentages of each metal can vary slightly. Compared to 18K yellow gold, 14K yellow gold has a slightly warmer hue and is actually a bit more durable, thus doesn’t scratch or bend as easily.
Can you tell me a bit more about your gemstones?
We use an array of genuine precious and semi-precious stones, including (but not limited to) diamond, sapphire, topaz, tourmaline, moonstone and an assortment of quartz. Stones can either be cut into a smooth dome (cabochon) or cut with many flat facets (faceted stone) creating sparkle.
Can I get a piece customized for me?
Unfortunately at this time we are only offering stone customization on existing styles. This will incur a fee of $25, not including a price adjustment depending on the stone species. Desired stone availability is not always guaranteed, but we will do our best to find the perfect stone for you.
What are your terms of payment for customized stone requests?
For customized orders a 50% deposit is required prior to making your piece(s). Once the deposit is paid, the order cannot be cancelled and is the property of Alex Hossick Collections until the piece(s) is paid in full. Once paid in full, your order will be shipped to you.
