Hi Ron, 

It was fun tracking the package as it went from Thailand to Malaysia to Taiwan to Alaska to the mainland U.S., and now it has arrived!  The stone [jeremejevite] is marvelous!  Thank you very much for your patience with my payments and for your professional and attentive help along the way.

Best regards,

On Monday, 3/26, I received the stones I ordered from you. I am thrilled! The photos on your website do not do them justice. They sparkle even in dim light. Thank you for your service. I am interested in RUB9053SS. It is described as eye-clean but looks included. Do you have a better picture? Many thanks.

Glad to be able to purchase some more gemstones. Some of the other pieces I bought a few years ago are in jewelry making some people very happy. Hopefully business for me begins to pick up and I can continue to make some quality gem purchases.

Hi, received my order and very happy with them. regards

I was looking at the stones in my last order, and I am truly amazed at the cutting, the color and the quality of stones. They are awesome. I have recommended my friends that love gemstones to give AJS a try, I appreciate all the is done, Thank your Rung and Arnold

Dear Sir,
After much deliberation, I made my fist purchase. I must honestly say, I was very skeptical about buying any gemstone online but after reading reviews of AJS on other sites, I was convinced.
I bought a Portugese Cut 2.56 carat aquamarine, heated origin from Brazil.
I received notice that delievery was between 2-4 days and "WOW" was I surprised when I received my package in just 2 days.
My precious Aquamarine was more beautiful than in the photo. I have always love the gentle beauty of the Aquamarine gem and I am ever so glad I made my purchase.
AJS GEMS has certainly found a life long customer. Thank you ever so much.

Thank You, Rung, for the STUNNING Goshenite!
I’ve had a LOT of trouble matching it to a slightly larger stone set in a silver pendant with tanzanite side stones. I recently found a silver ring setting with tanzanite sidestones but could not find a Goshenite with the slight glolden (heliodor) to match-- all I was finding were slightly blue (aquamarine) stones and they looked HORRIBLE with the tanzanite.
Then I found AJS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This oval stone I purchased from you was (AMAZINGLY) the EXACT color and cut of the first one!!!!!!!!!!! What remarkable good fortune!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I appreciate your professionalism, great communication, and obvious dedication to pleasing the customer, I will be back, and I will tell others!
Much continued success to you in 2012, 

-- D.R.S, CA, USA, December, 2011
I just got my package and just wanted to say how pleased I am. I really love the cut of this stone. It's a Christmas gift. The ring we'll put it in will be an anniversary present. I certainly look forward to purchase more gems from AJS in the future.
A happy customer,

Dear Ron,

Last summer I've purchased one of your peridot for my ring. Just a short story behind this ring. My mom passed away 15 years ago. I've decided to make a ring out of her wedding band. Her wedding band was 14 carat gold, old european style and quite big.
I added some more gold ( total weight is close to 20 grams ), your stone and 24 diamonds. Ring will be ready in a couple of weeks. I remember you ask me to send you a picture. There it is.
My mom is always with us and now I can have her warmth in my hand all the time. And after my time will come ( I'm 71) this ring will go to my son.

I hope all of you survive that disaster of epic proportions. My old friend's wife is from Thailand. He was there during Vietnam years. They still have relatives in Thailand and I got all news of what was happening there from them.

I like to thank you again for that beautiful stone for my special ring.
Peridot Ring
With warmest regards,

Dear AJS,

Just got my beautiful Paraiba! I adore it and can hardly wait to get it appraised!!!

-- Kimberly L, AL, USA, November, 2011 

Hi Rung,
I just wanted to let you know that we just received our Peridot stone.... and it is gorgeous, my wife is beside her self with excitement.
Thank you so much

-- Bob and Lee ,OK, USA, November, 2011

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!



-- Kimberly L., AL, USA, November, 2011 

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,

-- Margerita, Australia, November, 2011

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
