Protect Your Feedback & Ours

Due to unfair feedback we have been forced to review and rethink our feedback policy for buyers.  We believe that the feedback forum should be used to rate the entire purchasing experience and on the product as it is listed and worded not how the item is assumed to be.  If you have questions regarding our product, ask, we respond within 24 hours in nearly all cases. Since we take our feedback seriously we list our items as accurately as possible in an attempt to give our customers what we are claiming our product to be.  Much time, effort and expense is put into verifying the authenticity of the products we sell.  Communication is essential to problem resolution and based on our commitment to our customers believe that we would never deserve an unfavorable feedback.  Henceforth we will give feedback based on the buyer’s entire purchasing experience and responsibilities.  Any misuse or abuse of the purchasing or feedback forums will affect the quality of feedback given in return and possibly result in the suspension of buying privileges from our store.  While we regret being forced to take this action recent actions have forced us to so, so that we may continue to serve you in the manner in which you are accustom.  To our regular customers you know our level of customer service and commitment to you as our customer and so will not be affected.  To those of you who are new or potential customers please know we honor our values and our commitment to you as a potential future customer and look forward to a fair and long lasting business relationship.  Our business can only be successful by gaining and retaining new and existing customers so give us the opportunity to gain and retain your trust and business.  In the end when all is said and done you will not be disappointed.  

Thank you, Don & Lori Hofler

Extra Fine Quality. These gems have microscopic inclusions which are difficult to slightly difficult to see under a loupe with 10x magnification. Very Fine Quality. Small pin-pricks are just visible to the scrutiny of the close naked eye. However, the beauty of the gem is not diminished in anyway. Fine Quality.
