Know Your Alexandrite
When you buy your alexandrite jewelry from Safiya, you know you’re buying a natural, untreated gem. That’s because each piece of our fine jewelry is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity clearly stating the gem IS natural and untreated.
Buying the best is why Safiya only source our gems direct from one mine in Hematita, Brazil - where the rarest alexandrites of the highest quality are mined. And by buying direct, Safiya can pass on the considerable saving to our customers.
No other mine comes close to producing alexandrites with the remarkable color change from a rich bluish green in daylight to a deep plum red in artificial light as the Hematita mine. Certainly synthetics don’t even come close. You can buy cheaper, but you can’t buy better.
Despite Covid-19 causing things to go a bit slower than usual, Niel walked us through the whole process and met with us to choose the Alexandrite in person (with safety protocols.) We were kept in the loop at each stage of the initial idea pitch, choosing the gem, approval for a custom design, and the final delivery of the ring. He told us the story of how he started in the business and why he thinks Alexandrite is a great choice for jewelry that is meant to last. He really wants people to be happy with their choice.
