Customer Reviews

We often receive unsolicited comments from our clients and we post them here for the benefit of customers contemplating their first purchase of a fine gemstone from AJS Gems.

I made my first purchase from you and received it today. I was perfectly delighted above my expectations. I had never ordered a stone from overseas and was more than a bit apprehensive. I had no reason to be. I will definitely be buying from you again. I purchased a paraiba apatite and the color was even more vivid than the picture, with the rich fire of a superb gem. I can't stop looking at it. Thank you so much for exceeding my expectations!

Hi,  I am glad I kept the stone [blue green tourmaline] I bought from you. My local jeweler made this beautiful ring which I love. They were very impressed with the quality of the stone. I thought I will let you know. Thank you.

Ron, the pendant made by S.J. arrived a few days ago, and I had my first in person look at the stone [12.60 ct Morganite]. Frankly, I had no idea what to expect from the still photo on your website or from the video. The color, in my judgment, is more subtle and a different hue from what I anticipated. Having said that, the color and life of the stone vastly exceed my best hope. To my eye the stone is an entrancing, limpid peach with hints of orange and pink. It is wonderfully bright and perfectly transparent; and, while definitely a pastel, it is robust enough to hold its own amid the significant diamonds around it. The most import thing is you told me the stone is exceptional, and your advice, as ever, turned out to be true. Joan finds the morganite so entrancing that, when she's not wearing the pendant, she often opens the box just to look and delight in it. (This is her first and only morganite. She's named it J.P.) As usual, S.J. did an excellent job with the setting. Thanks for your help in this matter, Ron. I'll send you a photo soon. Best,

I received the [3.10 ct] Rubellite yesterday and it's beautiful, as you said. It will make a lovely pendant. The post office once again neglected to keep and return the return receipt for the package, so don't be expecting that any time soon! Take care,

I got the stone [11.26 ct Morganite] in good time. I was immediately impressed by the radiance of colour even before I got the bubble wrap off of it. There was a very obvious salmony-pink glow from within the confines of the wrap, and when I got closer and closer to the stone I was getting really excited by the brightness and colour. It is, indeed, a "wow" stone - you certainly weren't kidding on that part. And if you haven't already figured it out - I am very happy with the stone. I am thinking about a purely white gold setting - little border of diamonds (7-pt or so) all around the stone, simple bale, white gold chain. I was - repeat, WAS - thinking about rose gold for the bale/chain, but I think even that would take away from the stone - I want it to be ALL about this beautiful morganite! Thanks so much for this beautiful gem, not to mention all your helpful advice. Take care all - pictures as they become available.

Thanks for the package which arrived safely on Friday. Only 48 hours en route! The stone [7.78 ct Star Ruby] is lovely. Everything that your web site said it would be. Arrangements are in hand to set it for one of those numerically significant but unmentionable birthdays in October. I’m sure it will be stunning. Many thanks again. Yours,

Hi Arnie, I finally received the ruby on Monday but did not have a chance to open the package until last night. The ruby is beautiful. The color is outstanding. And it is bigger than I thought it would be. I think because it is a "pudgy" oval which makes it appear larger. Thanks so much for your help in getting me the ruby I've always wanted. I will send you a picture of the ruby in my future ring when I get it set. I will go with lots of diamonds around it like you suggested. In the future, if you come across another nice ruby with this color and price range let me know. I will let you know when I get the paperwork from Bangkok. Best regards,

Hi Ron, I have just received the gems. The peridot is super bright clean and sparkly, thanks for your advice on that one. And I'm very happy with your suggestion to go with the 3.75 yellow sapphire. Its a fantastic colour and shines like a yellow diamond. Most excellent, once again, and thank you for your time and help. Kind regards,
