Every Alex Woo design is stamped on the back for authenticity.
All of our Little Icons™ come with a chain which runs through the charm. This is part of the design of each Little Icon™. Please note that not all other chains will fit through our charms.
All of our sterling silver Little Icons™ come standard on a 16-inch 1.5mm diamond cut ball chain. Our 14kt gold single Little Icons™ come on a 16-inch 1mm chain. There are a few exceptions that come on a 1.2mm (this will be noted in the product's description). Our gold custom double Icons come on a 1.2mm chain and our custom triple Icons come on a 1.5mm chain.

Unfortunately, we are unable to take returns/exchanges from any of our retail partners.

We recommend that you contact the store that you purchased from and we can work with the store to best help you.
If you are in need of a repair, we are happy to take a look at your Alex Woo piece. We can work with you to assess the damage and type of repair needed. A fee may apply and you will be notified at the time the jewelry is assessed and prior to beginning repair.
If you have a website return/exchange/repair you would need to process your request directly with us. We are happy to help!
We hope you enjoy your Alex Woo Jewelry for many years to come. To help keep your jewelry just like new, we offer Jewelry Cleaner Sets with polishing cloths on our website.
Additionally, here are some tips to help keep them clean. For 14kt Gold or Diamond pieces, use a solution of warm water and a few drops of mild dish washing liquid. Gently scrub with a soft-bristle toothbrush then rinse with warm water and dry with a soft cloth. For Sterling Silver pieces, use a paste made of three parts baking soda to one part water for matte finished areas.
We also recommend storing jewelry in an airtight and dry lined case or soft pouch when it is not in use.
Sizing + Styling
Our 14kt Gold chains are available in 3 different thicknesses; 1 mm, 1.2 mm, and 1.5 mm. Most 14kt Gold and Diamond Little Icons™ come on our 1mm gold diamond cut ball chain. We also recommend this chain for 14kt Gold and Diamond Mini Additions™. Our 1.2 mm diamond cut ball chain is used for all Custom Double Gold or Diamond Little Letters and Numbers as well as some select Little Icons™ styles that are heavier in weight (this will be noted in the product's description). Our 1.5 mm diamond cut ball chain is used for our Custom Triple Gold or Diamond Little Letters and Numbers.
Due to the softer and more delicate properties of Sterling Silver, silver chains are Rhodium plated to prevent tarnishing, and are offered in 2 sizes; 1.2 mm diamond cut ball chains for Mini Additions™ and 1.5 mm for all Sterling Silver Little Icons™. All Little Icons™ come with a standard complimentary 16" chain. All chains are available to be upgraded to 18" and 20" (some select styles are also now available in 24") and have a lobster clasp closure.
Our Little Icons™ and Mini Additions™ have very small chain holes and other chains may not fit through them. Our diamond cut chains were specifically selected for our pieces and we do not recommend using other chains.
We’re glad you want to add more charms to your Alex Woo necklace! Our Little Icons™ and Mini Additions™ are designed to be able to slide on and off our chains. Cluster and layer for endless combinations!
You can redeem your reward points for a discount code to use at checkout. To access your reward points, log in to your account and scroll to the bottom of any page on our website and click "REWARDS." Please note that the rewards discount code cannot be used in conjunction with a promotional code. If you are having any trouble with your rewards, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You have one full calendar year to use your rewards points, starting from the date that you earned them.
When you return an item, you lose the associated credit you originally earned by buying the item in the first place.
Sound kind of confusing? Here's an example: let's say you had previously spent $50 towards a 'spend $100, earn 500 points' promotion, and you decide to buy a $20 item, which bumps you up to $70. If you decide to return that item, your progress would also go back down to $50 – it's just like you hadn't bought the item in the first place.
By registering an Alex Woo account, you can proceed through checkout faster, check the status of your orders, earn Rewards Points with every purchase, create a wishlist, and be one of the first to learn about new collections!
We love meeting fans at events! There’s always the chance to personally meet Alex and even have your jewelry hand-signed by her. You can find out about upcoming events by subscribing to our newsletter or by following our Instagram (@alexwoojewelry) or Facebook (@alexwoo).
