Gemporia.com is the online home of Gemporia, a jewelry company that says they believe that people should be able to purchase beautiful jewelry that does not "cost the earth," nor is "mass produced, or run of the mill."
Instead, all jewelry should "leave a legacy" for the people who wear it and also for those who make the jewelry, so Gemporia.com says they offer the best in stylish jewelry, affordable, and responsibly made jewelry.
The website is very specific on those two points - that their jewelry is affordable and responsible. In order to keep their jewelry affordable, they say that they carefully control the design and the production of their jewelry and they do not pay for store front business spaces.
Because of this, they are able to keep their prices lower than their competitors. Because they say they keep track of the current average prices from major retailers, they tell their customers that they typically offer savings of more than 50% for comparable pieces.
As for responsibly made jewelry, Gemporia.com says that they work closely with charities that give back to the communities that produce the metals and gemstones that they work with.
Customers who are interested in purchasing jewelry from Gemporia can do so by searching through their pieces, first by a general category, like Rings, Necklaces, Bracelets, Earrings, Diamond Jewelry, or special Collections.
You can then narrow your search using other filters, like Price, Color, Gemstone, Metal Type, and more. For customers looking for even more original pieces, they do offer connections to currently ongoing live jewelry auctions.
Customers who do order through this website but either do not want the jewelry or have complaints about what they have received can return their pieces to them for any reason within 30 days of the day they receive their jewelry.
All you have to do is complete the returns form that is included in every package and then include it in the package when it is returned to the company in order to receive a full refund.

in the past i have bought from gemporia endlessly, usually happy with my purchases but especially happy with the prices i paid. nowadays i cant afford to buy from them as their prices have sky rocketed, you wouldnt mind so much except the quality of the items has seriously gone downhill, im sending more things back than keeping down to them being badly put together. it takes ages to get your money back as apparently they only have one member of staff to deal with the hundreds of returns they must get. i am currenly waiting on refunds for two items, theyve just been lying in their warehouse for a week now, when i receive the refunds thats me finished with gemporia, theyve got too greedy
we have been buying from Gemporia for many years now and never really had any problems. The closest to a problem we had was when a gem popped out of a ring, but they fixed it and returned it with absolutely no fuss. But that was once out of dozens and dozens of purchase.
Fantastic quality, great prices and first class customer service.
Having personally bought 7 items of jewellery from Gemporia over the last 6 months for my wife, I can honestly say that their customer service has been superb and the jewellery itself of a good quality. The purchase risk is mitigated by the fact that you can always return any item within 30 days and get a full refund for whatever reason.Yes Gemporia's marketing is slick and their presenters are trained in using enthusive language to make sales but most jewellery retailers play games with our emotions and typically work on higher margins than Gemporia. Whilst the grade of gemstones may not always be the highest, the look of the jewellery is generally lovely and you will only have paid a fraction of the price that many pay for similar jewellery. We must not delude ourselves, jewellery is not an investment. It is a fashion statement. How much you want to pay for a fashion statement is up to you but Gemporia is unlikely to let you down too much as their products are usually good value for money.
After being treated like I was a bad person for returning a broken item and having been harrassed by the gestapo call center managers, I refuse to ever have anything to do with this unethical company in the future. I believe everything Victoria has said about their tactics. I have had a much better experience and quality product by going straight to the Jaipur vendors that are located on the web. Good riddance to these jackal gem jigalows at Gemporia!!!!!
You usually get what you pay for, just use common sense. I've been buying for the past two years and love every piece I've kept. If I haven't loved it then it's gone back. Never had a problem with delivery or returns. Large rubies are very expensive if they have few flaws and I wouldn't be able to afford them. The majority on Gems are filled... This is always mentioned on screen (f) after the description, nothing is hidden. I've never had a problem.
I WAS WORRIED AS I FOUND MANY BAD REVIEWS ABOUT GEMPORIA. I MADE AN ORDER OF A STERLING RING, AND GOT IT IN 3 WEEKS (SHIPPING TO HAWAII IS LONG!) THE RING IS VERY BEAUTIFUL, BETTER THAN ALL THE SILVER RINGS I HAVE - VERY STABLE, VERY GOOD CRAFTSMANSHIP. ALSO I APPRECIATED HOW NICELY IT WAS PACKAGED. I AM A HAPPY CUSTOMER.
As someone who worked for Gemporia in the United States before they declared their bankruptcy (which came as a shock to us), I can tell you that I have seen all the jewelry up close and personal and it is sub-standard quality. As a host I was told to hold jewelry in a certain way as to hide any defects. On several occasions, stones fell out of the jewelry while live on air and the camera had to cut to another image to avoid showing the terrible quality. When I questioned whether this was right, I was told that all jewelry has flaws, even the high-street jewelry and that I should just "spin" it to their advantage. I am still somewhat new to the jewelry selling industry so I believed them. As far as how they run their business, they are master fabricators. They ruined my life and the lives of so many others who invested their time and money into working for them. I highly recommend you spend your money elsewhere instead of giving it to a company that depletes mines and then moves on to another location leaving the citizens of that country with empty mines and no more work, which is precisely what they did to the US laborers and what they will continue to do to others, including their customers.
