Customer Reviews

Hi Ron,

I have just received my stone [2.07 ct Bi-color Tourmaline]. It's true to colour! Am very happy and satisfied. Thank you so much for making this purchase a breeze. I would like to ask if you have tourmalines in round cabochon or square sugarloaf cabochon cut? Preferably around 8mm to 10mm in diameter. Please do let me know when these are available at your store. Thank you so much for your excellent and speedy service. Regards,

I received the 18.38C African Amethyst from Zambia I purchased from you and took it to my jeweler for an appraisal prior to setting it in a rose gold ring mount. My VERY conservative jeweler valued it at $650 - more than double what I paid you for it! I am very particular about my stones and this is my 2nd one of a "near loop clean" clarity. It  is exactly that and is a beautiful deep purple color without zoning, perfectly cut and proportionate. I can hardly wait to get my finished ring. Thank you so much for this world class gem. I appreciate very much that your descriptions and pictures truly reflect what the customer buys - a rare thing these days - making me feel very confident in purchasing from you though you are in another country. You are always on my radar when I am searching for gems! Thanks!

Hello Ron,

I wanted to let you know that I received the Rubellite. It is AMAZING!.  I can not say it is prettier than the one the jeweler broke which I also purchased from you, just different beautiful. You truly were a blessing to work with. This unfortunate situation is going to be just fine thanks to you.

On a side note...My designer's husband, Patrick is travelling to Thailand next week and plans to meet with you. I hope your meeting goes well as I have prepared him for the quality of your stones.

Thank you again.

I saw another pretty stone on your website and was wondering if you had any more photos of it.  It is a 5.01 carat red zircon #ZHN9651TS. Does this stone have a lot of dark spots?  I should be getting my Rhodolite today.  I will let you know. I am excited. By the way, your customer service is amazing!

-- Joanne C., New York, USA, Aug 2013

Dear Ron,

The gemstones arrived early (8:40 am) this morning - 3 calendar days over a weekend - Wow, is that quick!

My wife and I are very pleased with each gem [Burma ruby, blue sapphire, imperial topaz, tourmalines].  The pictures were great, but seeing the actual gems was awesome!

Thank you and your team so much for helping me through my purchase decision and making it easy to acquire fabulous gems from halfway around the world.

Dear Ron, 

The stone [5.43 ct yellow sapphire] arrived today and it is absolutely beautiful. I can’t wait to see it in the final setting, but meanwhile I’m blown away by the colour and size of the sapphire. I will send you pictures of the ring when I take delivery at the end of next month.
