Dear Matt,

 I received my gems yesterday morning and I am very, very happy. The roundish oval sapphire is wonderful and is going to look beautiful when mounted. The green tourmaline is that perfect bottle green Ive been looking for.. I love it. Thank you so much. I wont hesitate to buy from you again.

Dear Rung: I picked up my package a few days ago and just wanted to say thank

Greetings Rung,
I received the gemstone order Friday and am quite pleased with the

Thanks very much

Hi, I received the ruby I ordered very quickly on Friday the 15. Thank you very much, I thought it was a beautiful stone when
saw it. I refrained from e-mailing you immediately though until the local jeweler with whom we have worked with for several
years had a chance to look at it. She thinks it is a great stone and a very good value. I really appreciate you not taking
advantage of my ignorance of gems in general and rubies in particular. My wife is very happy with it and has picked out a
couple of settings she is considering with her jeweler. Thank you once again. I will be ordering stones from you again in the
future. My wifes birthday is in July and of course there is always Valentines day...

This ones not about Gems but was so sweet we just had to put it up....
How fascinating to receive a newsletter from Thailand about local conditions. I am still not used to this worldwide email service but
love its ease of connection and business.

We have heavy wet but beautiful snow here today, the day before our American Thanksgiving Day. Our house tomorrow will be
filled with friends and family eating oyster stuffed turkey, mashed potatoes and wonderful gravy, sweet potato/marshmallow
casserole, mushroom/green bean casserole, a relish of cranberries, oranges, and nuts, cheese, olive and pecan tray, wines and a
good stiff gin-and-tonic for me. Somehow, our Thanksgiving Day has become synonymous with food, even more than Christmas.
But we do remember to give thanks for such blessings and we share what we can with those in need.

So, thank you for a window on your part of the world...would that we could all live in peace.

Take care,

Dear Arnold,

Thank for for taking the time to write back. I am extremely pleased with the gems that I bought from you/AJS. I Iooked extensively
at other online inventories to compare price and quality, and have tried other online, TV shopping, and gem show sources without
this success. Nothing compares to the stones that I bought from AJS. I am having the aquamarine set over the holiday, and I am
eagerly anticipating it being done. I am particularly happy with the spessartite - "Mandarin Garnet". I bought one from a TV shopping
source, and still had it to compare with the stone that I bought from you. There was no comparison, and the shopping TV price was
so much higher. Luckily I can return it and get my money back.

I am pleased to have found a source for reasonably priced, high-quality color gemstones as I have dabbled in jewelry design, and
sold jewelry on a small scale. With gemstones of the quality that I bought from you, it will be hard to part with them. Perhaps I wont
I will continue to look at AJS as a source for gemstones for both my personal and for sale jewelry.

Hi, Matt! :) - and thanks for your usual fast response.

OK Lets put holds on both SPI-00302 and SPI-00295 - that pairing really does look great.

And, lets put a hold on TPR-00068 and TPR-00069; I want both, but I will probably end up deciding between them.

If there are any concerns holding these selections for this amount of time, please let me know - I dont want to inconvenience you in any way. But, as always, I really appreciate your willingness to hold items for me as in the past.

Now, as far as the site goes, the adjustments are very good improvements, as searching/comparing stones is a lot easier. I might suggest one minor change - having an option to view "all items" at once (admittedly, this is not really necessary), as some sites have, but the 48 per page feature is really good, and more than adequate.
Otherwise, the sites aesthetic is even better than before, lots of good colour and impressive stones to "wow" a visitor to the site. It gives a really obvious impression of selection, variety and quality to the site and its contents. Nicely done!.

Thats about it for now, so I will be in touch again closer to the end of April, so thanks again for the holds, and youll hear from me soon enough; I do my taxes this week(end), so I will have a better picture of this orders feasability not to far from now..

Take care, all! :).


Dear Rung,

Thanks for your adding the two tourmalines to my order. Please do not worry about the $5.50 credit - you have done
more than $5.50 worth of extra services for me. I enjoy doing business with you and Arnold.

Dear Ms. Rung,

My package arrived this morning before 10:30, and the padparadscha sapphire is gorgeous.
The only other padparadscha sapphire I have ever seen was more orange than pink. I am
impressed with the rose overtones in the stone I bought, as well as with its clarity and fire.

I have now purchased two loose gemstones from your company and been completely satisfied
with both. The tsavorite garnet I ordered a few weeks ago has been made into a beautiful ring,
and the sapphire will soon be in one just as pretty.

Thank you for the high quality of your merchandise and for the promptness of your delivery

Sincerely yours,

Dear Arnold and Rung,

Hello again! Hope you are doing well.
By the way, the blue green tourmaline I recently purchased is truly a gem. One of the most beautiful stones I own. The
fancy tourmaline (pear shape) sold right away and the pear shaped geen tourmaline has gotten a lot of oohs and
aahs as well. Its also a beautiful stone, and I may want to just keep it!
It is Thanksgiving weekend here, so I will be taking a few days off. If you have time, you can respond to my home email

Take care.
Stan S.
P.S. I am honored that you used my comments in your "Customer Comments" section. I would gladly restate all the
good things I said before and then some. Your stones are great!!

Dear Arnold & Rung (Ms),

Just recieved it this morning. Arnold, much thanks to you and Rung (Ms) and everyone else for all that youve done. I
should have this set in a week or so. Ill send you a picture when its done.
Ive never really looked at gemstones until recently. What a fascinating business youre in. So many different gems, I
would have never guessed. Kind of like my first tattoo, I think Im hooked.
on each side of this sapphire,but, now Im thinking of using some Montana (YOGO) sapphires instead. I like the idea
that they are a baby blue type color and think they would just help the ring look more unique. Im not locked into the
Montana sapphires if, you can point me in the direction of something similar without going towards anything with a
green hue/color in it. Im thinking of something in the .50 carat range.

Dear Ms. Rung,

I wanted to let you know I received my blue star sapphires and my breath was taken away. I can not tell you how
happy I am to have found AJS and how pleased I am with the gems. The color is magnificent. Exceptional gems and
outstanding service are truly the hallmarks of AJS. Your team has just gained a loyal customer. Thank you so much.

Kindest regards,

Dear Arnold and Rung:

Once again, everything is better than pictured and described! I could not be more pleased!

Thank you for your excellent service and product line.

Yours truly,

Rock Hill, SC / November, 05

Dear Arnold & Rung,

Wow! What great service. I also work in the customer service field and with a lot of suppliers. I cant even get people
in my own city to get back to me this fast.
I just wanted to update you to my Pay Pal situation .Pay Pal says it can take two to three days to confirm my account.
If were to go three days that would be on a saturday and possibly no bank/pay pal activity would take place on that
day. If that were to happen it could be as late as monday 10/31. If you need to put the stone back up on your site for
the time being, I completely understand. Thank you again for your time.

Most Sincerely,
Mike C.

Dear Rung:
The new Apatite you selected is just what I wanted. You did a great job. Now Im very anxious to see the Mandarin you
selected. It should be here next week.
In the future I hope I can ask for your assistance in my Gemstone selections.
Thank again,
Best Regards, Mike

AJS Gems,
I received my stones today...they are beautiful!!! A little greater depth than what I thought the picture showed but, still
very beautiful. Ill be ordering again.

Dear Ms. Rung:

The tsavorite garnet I ordered from AJS Gems on Monday arrived this morning (wow, youre
fast), and it is stunning! Even my jeweler was impressed.

Kudos to whoever photographs the stones for your Website. While a picture can never do a
gem full justice, the photo of the garnet I purchased accurately represented the stone in color,
cut, and clarity and made my selection easy.

I will certainly be a repeat customer.

Many thanks.

Hi, Rung

Thank you, for letting me know that it is possible to order "multible" same size stones of Danburite. I have just
recieved a package from ajsgems to day with two Danburites and a Labradorite (LAB-00015 and DAN-00143) to my
grate satisfaction (Invoice JOff101705). I will return to you when I need more stones.

Best regards
