Ex-factory story

The Ex-Factory story is about Ribas family-owned business with a disruptive idea to make fine jewelry affordable to all customers. 
The roots of the Company date back to 2002, when RIBAS Jewelry was established in Tel Aviv. The Ribas family are proud members of the Israel's Diamond Exchange, the worldwide hub of the diamond and gem activity, providing first-hand access to the precious stones supply chain. The Company holds relevant licenses for diamond trade related activities and fine jewelry manufacturing governed by the Israel Ministry of Economy. 


Today 

The Company is rapidly building an international presence and currently sells jewelry in stores across Israel and the capital of Lithuania. Ex Factory online store is international, and offers delivery services across Europe. 
The Company plans to expand further by entering new markets beyond its current presence, invest in branding and further strive for the excellence in the customer experience.



Fair prices

With a history of jewelry making for almost 20 years, Ex Factory leverages extensive network and in-house experience. Supported by an integrated supply chain and enjoying a lean cost structure, Ribas team designs, produces and sells fine jewelry at bargain prices. Ex Factory offers most of its gold diamond pieces ranging from € 60 to 1,000, at a significant discount to similar products at other retailers.
Major brands in this space add 8-10x markup to the actual cost. To make the fine jewelry pieces affordable, Ex Factory team designs pieces in-house, sources the gemstones from the Israel Diamond Exchange, and has built relationships with the best manufacturers allowing to sell the final product without the traditional markup. 



Design

Ribas family designs all the collections in their offices in Tel-Aviv and Vilnius. The pieces are easy to wear and can complement any fashionista look from minimalist classic style to layered necklaces for the button-down summer day. These pieces are not just something customer's put a Pinterest board for 'someday.' Ex Factory jewelry collections are casual enough for every day, but yet glamorous and luxurious.
All Ex Factory collections are presented by price category to make shopping a smooth affair for those with a target budget in mind. The precious gemstones and diamonds are made as affordable as a treat on a regular day and the clients no longer need to wait for traditional holidays like Valentine's Day or Birthday, or to wait for someone else to buy the ring, necklace, earrings, or bracelet for them. Ex Factory makes diamonds affordable for all. 
Ex Factory also works with the customers directly to create custom-made fine jewelry pieces. The team is able to design, manufacture and deliver any piece of jewelry at any size, quality and price. The design and selection process is bespoke and interactive. As Israel Diamond Exchange members, Ribas family has direct access to diamonds and rare precious stones of any size and quality. For such orders, the client is often invited to the Company's offices in the Israel's Diamond Exchange, to be able to review and chose the right precious stone for their piece.
