Dear Rung,

Thank you very much.  I would like to takeup the offer of FedEx shipping.

The two trillion spinels that I have just received are absolutely beautiful. The fire they display is amazing.  They are so bright and a stunning pink.

I'm hoping this pair will be the same. Your descriptions have always accurately described the stones that I have received.  I've never been disappointed so I am looking forward to receiving them.

Kind regards,

-- Margerita, NSW, Australia, November, 2011 

Thank you for the ecertificate regarding my new bauble! I can hardly wait to see it in person. I have searched around quite a bit to find an affordable Paraiba tourmaline. AJS delightfully fulfilled my need.

AJS has a wonderful selection and I had great time picking out rocks and putting them in my cart. It’s a small consolation to actually owning but when I am able to buy again, AJS Gems is at the top of my list of making the impossible possible!

Dear Rung and Arnold,

As always your replies are very quick and helpful, and your gemstones absolutely beautiful.

I would like to pay for the pair of spinels by credit card. The shipping address is the one you have on file.


Thank you and kind regards,

Dear Ron,

I very much appreciate your assessment of the two gems and am more than inclined to agree (though sight unseen). However, Sonja has very peculiar taste, and after showing her at least 80 different gems, the majority from AJS, she was still very much interested in the gem labed as SAP7280WD. This was due to the blue-grey hues (in picture) which appear very similar to her own eyes which she knows I love. My intuition is that she will also choose the 1.06 carat stone, as it was one of the last I showed her and she immediately loved it. Assuming she choose the later, I intend to have the other, which recalls her eyes, set into small pendent which I recently commissioned. Though my intent is to make her ring, like our life, a thing of equal choice rather than choices made by one for the both.

I do of course wish to thank you for your honest and kind considerations though still would prefer to have both gems shipped. I have no intention of returning them...and in truth, after Sonja sees them, I will be paying to have them shipped to myself in Egypt where I am deployed (US military) in the Sinai; so cost is not my highest concern. Regarding the invoice I completely understand and the notation of an amount for $100 is perfectly suitable for me. I am thankful that you can understand my desire to prevent the stones, or ring as a whole, from being debased of its true value by considerations of its tangible cost (as Sonja, frets that I spend to much and had sincerely wished for noting more than myself and if a ring, than one from a "gum ball machine").

Before parting, I wish to say that I am amazed at the friendliness, personal considerations and professionalism of yourself and AJS as a whole! From simple touches such as taking note of my fiances name when emailing; to considering impact of shipping cost on myself, and even asking if I should like to simply not have one of the gems! I have never dealt with any individual or business which truly seemed to care more for the consumer than their own profits, than yourself and AJS gems! Should I, or any I know, ever need a gemstone, I will be coming, and recommending them, to you first! Thank you!

In closing, I hope that all is well for you, your staff, and your friends in Thailand as I am certain that some with whom you are close, are surely being affected by this unprecedented flooding. I send my sincerest wishes that none of you suffered to greatly and if there is anything which I can do besides send hope / prayers, please ask and I shall do what is within my power.

With gratitude,

-- Christopher P.,Sgt, USA, B Co. 1-175th IN, October, 2011

I just received your FEDEX package containing the the Chrysoberyl I ordered just two days ago and I could not be happier with the gemstone or your extremely efficient shipping. Thank you very much for this wonderful gemstone buying experience.

-- Ryan L., KY, USA, August, 2011

I have received the gems. Thanks so much. They are beautiful and I’m sure we will be doing more business in the future.


-- Elaine E, Ontario, Canada, August, 2011


Third time is definitely the charm! I LOVE the replacement gem you sent me. The color is OUTSTANDING, the clarity is great, and NO window. Perfection! I'm really happy. Thank you so much for working with me to help me find the right gem. Now I've just got to be more careful with this one! Thanks again and take care.

I received the sapphire you sent me. It is gorgeous!

I sure wish I could come to Thailand myself to thank you, but I can't do it right now!

Blessings and thank you,

I just wanted to let you know that the chrysoberyl arrived safely. I'm very pleased with it. It is very sparkly and I love the color! It looks just like the photograph on your site.It was a pleasure to do business with you. Thank you very much.

Dear Rungrawee, Arnold and everyone at AJS Gems,

I just wanted to thank you very much for the beautiful stone!  I ordered a pink tourmaline and I am so happy with the purchase!  I love that it was a deeper pink color, and the stone is cut beautifully!  This is to be a gift for my grandmother, and I will have it mounted in a ring.  I am sure she will love the stone as much as I do!  Thank you for providing such a high quality stone at such a reasonable cost!  I will definitely purchase any future gemstones from you!  Thanks once again!

-- Keely, Gainesville, Fl USA, March 21, 2011


To all of you great people of AJS Gems. This is Joe Szweda Sr. I know that all of our past communications were thru my son, also Joseph. This time I would like to thank all of you for the great service that We have always received from you. Again the last two purchases were as expected. I am pleased with the quality as always.

I know that I have over the years purchased a lot of things from you (AJS) and never have I been disappointed. I know that my son also has purchased a few items of his own and we all have been very pleased to do business with all of the gems that we have acquired from you. We have had a lot of compliments from friends as well as jewelers alike. Most all of the gems that we have purchased have been custom mounted and they are spectacular. There is one left to mount, that I purchased for my son some time back. Unfortunately we have not gone any further with it at this time. I also wish to thank you for inquiring about my family. Doing business with you people is very personal. Even though we have never met, I do feel that I know you somewhat. One thing that I do know I can always count on AJS to give me merchandise that is exactly what is stated. The pictures do not do your gems justice. They are always better in person. 

In closing I wish to thank you for always living up to my expectations. If I ever have the opportunity to get back to Thailand (a very beautiful country), I will definitely come and see all of you.

Until the next purchase

Thank you

-- Joseph Szweda Sr., CHARLOTTE, NC USA, March, 2011

 Hi Rung,

Just a note to say I LOVE the stone.  I'm really glad we went through all the trouble. Sorry.  I know it was especially hard with this e-mail system going down.  But it's worth it in the end.  This is just beautiful. Thanks again.
