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.

Dear Ms Rung,

thank you I have received the stones on tuesday, but I was abroad and that is why I write you just now. Im very satisfied with the
stones. I hope I can order again soon. The invoice was correct!

Budapest, Hungary / March, 06

Thank you for the speedy delivery. I received the package on Friday 3 Feb 06. The stones are good quality and I am
happy with them. I will purchase from you again.

I am interested in orange and or padparadscha sapphires only. The size and cut that I am looking for is a 6.5-7mm
in a round or a round brilliant cut. This will probably be a stone from 1.25 to 1.5 ct. More pinkish orange to heavy
orange tones are preferred.

Contact me when you have something to show.

Thank you.

Dear Rung:
        The shipment arrived this morning, as expected.  The tourmaline is even prettier than I dared hope!  The footnote regarding its sparkle and brilliance was so true -- I cant wait to have it set into a ring to replace one I lost several years ago.    I have added your email address to my acceptable list, so from this time on I should be able to received information from you.  Thanks again for everything.

Dear Rung,

I just wanted to thank you.
I received the stone and was very impressed.
The cut was great under 10x (not too shallow) and both I and my fiance loved the color.

It was better than expected and I once again thank you for
taking care of everything so quickly.

Best Wishes and many thanks,

Hi Rung,

Just a quick note to let you know that the Moonstone (00059) arrived today. It is not the first time I have purchased from AJS and as usual, the quality of the gem and the outstanding customer service is one of the best in this business. I am sure that this gem, once set, will draw as many admiring comments as any of the others I have received from you. Keep up the good work and I am looking forward to purchasing the next gem some time soon.

Kindest regards

I wanted to thank you for the fine quality stones you have and wonderful service.

I had my beautiful blue zircon put in to a setting from my first engagement ring, which previously had a cz in it.  I loved the
setting, but obviously not the old cz.  Its absolutely stunning now, and I love wearing it.  It truly is as close to a perfect blue
diamond as you can get.  The sparkle and color is mesmerizing! It reminds me of the blue waters of Kauai, where we
honeymooned.  Id love to send you a pic (by email) of the ring for you to share the quality of your stones with your customers.
If youd like to, reply with your direct email address.

Thanks AJS Gems,

Hi Rung,

Received the blue zircon and antique cushion rubellite yesterday.  Both are stunning---especially the rubellite--what a striking gem!!

Hello to you all, Arnold, Matt, and Rung!

I received my latest order yesterday, and what can I say? How can I begin?

The stones are fabulous, to say the least.

The 2 Paraibas are nothing short of magnificent - I have never seen such a luminous and radiant peacock blue before in anything in nature.
These stones are simply wonderful, needless to say, and a marvel to see in front of ones own eyes. The copper needles in the larger stone are only barely visible, and detract nothing from the splendour of the stone. In fact, I see these MINOR inclusions as an exempliary proof of the fact that Pariaba is copper-bearing! The Paraiba is a truly remarkable gemstone, and I am extrmely happy to have 2 to present in a ring/pendant set for my wife.

The Rubellites are the most intense reddish pink, and such sparkle!!
My wife loves pink at the best of times, so I can only imagine her delight when she receives the set pieces Ive planned for her.

The 2 Spinels are a gorgeous deep red, and that Tsavorite is an amazingly flashy deep green stone to behold.

I can honestly say I am THRILLED by these stones, and as always your service is impeccable. Thanks to you all again, in particular to Matt for all your helpful advice in the many e-mails we exchanged for this order, but another round of thanks to all 3 of you for your excellent parts you play so well indeed. I want you all to know and understand your friendly service - and, obviously, your product - is first-rate and truly appreciated. In addition, anyone thinking about purchasing a gemstone from your site will be very happy they did!

In sincerest appreciation from a very satisfied customer,

Ed in Vancouver, Canada

Now, for my next order... ;)

Hey matt,

Thanks so much. Received it on SAT! really quick.

Not an expert on prices. But how much normally would I be expecting to pay for the tourmaline I bought at retail prices? Also.

I should be planning a visit to your shop soon in thailand! Fantastic gems you have there~

Dear Rung: I picked up my package a few days ago and just wanted to say thank
you for your very prompt service and for keeping in touch with me while it was in
transit. I am very pleased and much appreciate your help.

Greetings Rung,
I received the gemstone order Friday and am quite pleased with the
quality. The moonstone was exceptional.
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.
