First mention

This wand was in possession of Alex Russo during the entirety of the series.


Alex's wand is of an unknown length and wood, with a maroon-colored shaft. At the tip of the wand is a glass orb, which glows different colors when casting various spells. Alex is also able to make phone calls with the wand and use different wand apps. She usually keeps it in whatever footwear she is donning at the moment.


It is never specified how Alex came into possession of her wand, though she could have received it as a family heirloom, or Jerry bought it for her when her magical powers emerged.

In the special Wizards VS. Angels: Part 2, Alex loses her wand while fighting on top of Gorog's fortress. Justin later discovers it in Washington Square Park in possession of a two-headed dog and returns it to his sister.

In another special, Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex, Alex loses her wand, as well as her magic, in order to destroy her evil doppelganger. However, upon realizing she can handle the responsibility of being the family wizard, her powers are restored, thus earning her wand back.


  • Selena Gomez kept the wand following the series finale of Wizards of Waverly Place.
  • Alex's wand is the second longest, next to Justin and Max's own.
