I just wanted to write and let you know how much I am enjoying my Peridot ring. I have only had it for two weeks, and every time I wear it I receive one or more compliments.

I purchased it from you at the Clayton Art Show. It was late Saturday evening and I looked at it and tried it on several times. Finally, my husband, Vince, and good friends talked me into it, convincing me that “you only live once”! I thought for certain that the next morning I would have buyers remorse, but I didn’t. It’s truly a joy to wear and it will forever be a symbol that “Live is not a rehearsal.”

Normally when Vince and I buy jewelry, I like to pick out the stone first. When we went to buy a ruby ring, I must have looked at 3 or 4 separate shipments of loose stones before I found the color and quality that I liked. It was a four month process! In other words, I do not normally buy an investment so quickly… The fact that you knew where the stone was from, your trusting answers about the stones quality and the passion & pride for your work were definitely the reasons for my purchase.

I look forward to your mailings and seeing you again next year at the Clayton Art Show.

I’ll need a pair of earrings or a pendant to match my ring! :-)
