Founded by the mother-daughter duo Karen and Alexis, Alexis Jae Jewelry, offers a completely customizable experience at wholesale prices.
Having come from a line of family members who manufactured jewelry themselves for 75 years, Karen and Alexis knew that by the time jewelry got into the hands of its consumer, prices had been significantly marked-up.
Throughout the years, family and friends of the two would ask if they could make them jewelry because it was so much more affordable and could be made exactly how they wanted. It wasn't long after the mother-daughter duo asked themselves, “Why don’t we do this for everyone?”
Alexis Jae Jewelry now customizes any piece of jewelry, helping people save nearly fifty percent of the price they would pay at a traditional retail store. Best of all, shoppers can feel good while doing it because all of their gems are ethically sourced. Their gold is recycled, and a portion of all profits goes toward breast cancer research.
To this day the mother-daughter duo has manufactured over 12,000 pieces, and counting.
Alexis' mom is in the jewelry business and manufactures jewelry for designers and stores. One day Alexis' boyfriend wanted to get her jewelry as a present, so of course, he asked her mom to make something. He found a pair of earrings online that retailed for $1,600, and her mom charged him for similar earrings $165.
After gifting them to Alexis, he said, " I have to be honest, I feel really uncomfortable. I think your mom undercharged me." After hearing those words, the Alexis' knew what she wanted to do - Create designer jewelry at wholesale prices that could be made exactly how the customer wanted it.
Alexis is the Co-Founder of Alexis Jae, a direct-to-consumer jewelry company. Before founding Alexis Jae, Alexis had several roles in finance, including Dyal Capital, Alwyne Management, and J.P. Morgan.
Alexis always had an entrepreneurial spirit. In 2021, Alexis left her job in finance to pursue Alexis Jae in order to provide consumers the exact pieces they want at wholesale prices.
Alexis has fundraised for breast cancer research since the age of two. It is a cause that is very important to her. It was not a question that a percent of the profits from this endeavor would go to A Cure In Our Lifetime.
