My first experience with your company. Brilliant. Received the gem a whole day earlier than I expected, in perfect condition. Extremely happy with the stone. Confirmed size, shape, weight and clarity were as advertised, with my Jeweller. I love the colour. Thanks. I will definitely shop with you again.
Have placed several orders this year, but this was the largest gem order. I had several unusual requests to make and the customer service handled each beyond my expectations. CUSTOMER SERVICE COULD NOT BE BETTER. As said before ...
