About Us
I love antiques and I adore natural Earth gemstones...I have collected period jewelry and gemstones for years and there is nothing like it. I select jewelry based on the precious materials, the unique styles and the authentic original condition. I only offer gem quality jewelry in my shop, items that I would purchase for myself, insuring your satisfaction. Fine jewelry does not lose value or go out of style and the pieces in my shop are all wearable investments. The old craftsmanship is unbeatable, each piece has a romantic feel, a special energy, exceptional quality and everyday durability.

Gemstones are not pulled and replaced with newly created gems, which is an unethical practice to me, it renders the piece altered and not original. Each piece available in my shop is original, examined, tested, researched and professionally assessed. My clean photography and in-depth descriptions display my honesty, passion and desire for your happiness. I realize committing to a large purchase on-line can be daunting, it is difficult to know who to trust. Please feel you can contact me personally, you will talk to me. My success is your happiness when you open your package.

Dear Tanya - I got the pendant last evening, it is stunning! It is just as lovely as you described, and the diamonds and emeralds really sparkle. I was so excited! It is perfect. I was going to save it to wear at our son's wedding this fall, but I don't know if I can wait that long. Either way, it will look amazing with the gold dress I bought for the occasion. Thank you so much for the beautiful addition to my jewelry box. You are wonderful to your customers, and I hope we can do more business in the future. Thanks again, ~R.

Hello Tanya! I received the diamond heart earrings this morning. WOW!!! They are perfect little beauties! Your packaging was also one of the most beautiful that I have seen in a long time. You have excellent communication skills & display thoughtfulness in how buyers receive their packages. A class act! THANK YOU!!!! ~D.

~

Hello Tanya,

All the best, ~J.

Dear Tanya, The magnificent snowflake arrived today! It is simply gorgeous and I love it - I do know that it will be one of my all-time favorites. It certainly surpassed my highest expectations in its simple, sophisticated elegance and excellent craftsmanship; how beautiful! Thank you for this pleasant experience. I wish you very happy holidays filled with lots of joy - ~S.

~

Tanya, Received the earrings today. Some days, when opening up a box from Ruby Lane, the item makes me gasp at the prettiness. The earrings are one of those items.
Thank you as always for your generosity. ~S.

~

Hi Tanya,
Thank you for these lovely earrings! The way you package everything is so thoughtful and creative. These sparklers are just perfect!
Thank you again, I am a happy camper :) ~C

~

Hi Tanya,
I wanted to add my thanks for my wife's amethyst and gold yin/yang bracelet. It is truly an outstanding design and a very beautiful piece of jewelry (and art). It certainly has made her very happy, and that makes me happy too. Thank you again, Cheers, ~C.

~

Hi Tanya, How do you spell spectacular? Well, I am wearing them right now! I have to admit...the earrings have exceeded my expectations in so many ways! They are delicate yet so sparkly
that they are show stoppers! With much appreciation, ~ R.

~

Tanya! I received the earrings! You are really an exceptional person with such an eye! One cannot easily find Victorian European cut earrings no matter how hard you look! I thought they would appear much smaller, but actually the earrings are larger than I thought and I even prefer them to my modern cuts! May God bless you! You definitely have an
extraordinary talent to pick such good jewelry! ~ J.

~

Tanya ~ I just wanted to thank you for my stunning engagement ring! It is beyond what I thought I was ordering. It is like 20 different rings in one. No matter what lighting I'm in, it is a different color than the last time I looked at it (and I look at it ALL DAY LONG!). Thank you for the quick delivery, beautiful packaging and little "goodies". You are currently my second favorite person in the world! ~K.

~

Tanya - Again WOW...the ring is more than I could even have hoped of finding. You have exceeded all my expectations with my purchase. Others had it in their cart, numerous times I read the description, looked at the pictures and was so encouraged that I kept the webpage up. Overcoming all fears, the ring seemed to be what I was looking for and I made the purchase. You have made this single girl very happy with this purchase of a gift to herself. The little details Tanya, you did kick it up a notch. I signed for the package and I am very happy with my purchase from Tanya's Treasures. Your listings are detailed and the pictures very helpful displaying the products. My excitement is overwhelming that I now own a beautiful waterfall ring because of you. Every time I look at it, I am just amazed. I will get to wear it and leave it as a heirloom for my wonderful daughter.
Thank you so very much Tanya for the excellent service. Wishing you the best and have a great holiday weekend. ~ J.

~

Tanya, I received the pendant. WOW! I have to say that buying from the internet always seems tricky to me because if not seen first hand, you can't be sure until you get it. With Tanya Treasures you can be 200% sure of what you are getting. As I have said before, it is a pleasure to shop with you! Your collections are truly unique! Your customer service is the absolute best! This is the first time I can say the pendant is even better in hand than anticipated (as I recall, you noted that exact statement in your description)! Well, it is truly beautiful! I will enjoy wearing it for a long time. T.

~

Hello Tanya,
It has been 3 days since I received the ring and I just wanted to thank you again for providing me with this amazing gem, and especially for your amazing customer service!! I appreciate you working with me the way you did. I've never done business with someone who was as polite and caring as you were with me! I am officially a huge fan of yours, and will definitely be spreading the word of your shop! Please post this to your website so everyone can know how wonderful you are, and how authentic and romantic your pieces are. I still feel like I robbed you because this emerald just won't stop glowing! My husbands coming around by the way:) Like I mentioned before I didn't get the chance to have my dream proposal or wedding because of the military, and it left a void that I didn't think I'd have a chance to fill. Your ring did it. It gives me butterflies every time I look at it. THANK YOU TANYA. I will treasure it forever. ~V.

Hi Tanya! I just received a most welcome ray of sunshine on this dark, cold Tuesday! My vintage and too-too lovely 24k Gold Nugget Chain Necklace just arrived and brightened my day considerably. It's perfect and a really beautiful addition to my collection - couldn't wait to put it on. I'm very happy with my
choice, and thank you for the honest descriptions of your merchandise. Thanks! E.

~

Well, my dear Tanya… I just slowly opened each beautiful little box and you couldn't have been more on target helping me with my choices…Gorgeous! Spectacular! I look like I'm going to a costume party because I have every piece of jewelry on as I'm writing this. I'm truly thrilled with these things and certainly won't be looking at any other site other than yours from now on…Hugs, M.

~

Tanya - For once, ONCE, your photos failed to show just how beautiful this pendant and earrings really are. *FANTASTIC* is all I can say! The 14k gold simply shimmers, and all three opals are fiery ovals of brilliance! Thank you, thank you, for having such splendid jewelry to choose from ~ I can't wait to wear these! E.

~

Dear Tanya, The Tourmaline pendant arrived today - it is beautiful, so pretty! I could not be happier with it!
Thank you so much for sending it, and so promptly. Your stock and service is, as usual, so good. I am always pleased when I find something from your store because you are very nice to deal with.
Regards, D.

~

Dearest Tanya, The mailman just left and I'm holding a package from you! I opened the boxes in this order red, black, then pink...WOW! I love the pearl grape ring, it's very elegant. The diamond ring is magnificent, I love the channel setting, it's so sparkly.
(drum roll PLEASE)
OMG!I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this heart sapphire ring. It certainly makes a statement.

Thank you so much. I am so thrilled, it has truly been a pleasure doing
business with you.
T.

Tanya! I received my latest purchase from Tanya's Treasures - my Vintage Green Gold 18k Link Chain Necklace -- and have worn it continuously. It does stand out because of the very unusual hue of the gold. I'd never heard of "green gold" prior to this and was pleasantly surprised at the color. Very pretty! Very different! which is why I like your treasures. I can count on you for satisfying my tastes in vintage jewelry. I browse your shop every day! Thanks, E.

~

Dear Tanya ~ I received your lovely (as usual!) package, and am delighted with my choices. I think I've worn the star sapphire almost every day and received many compliments.
I'll be excited to don the locket when I've found the perfect picture to put in it. The moonstone bracelet is simply divine and I think our idea is right on target - I will be so excited when I finally get to wear it!
All the pieces are just as you described - I am never disappointed in what I buy from you, Tanya - I totally trust your descriptions of the jewelry, and your fair prices. My interest in beautiful vintage jewelry is always gratified when I purchase from Tanya's Treasures.
Many thanks ~ E.

~

Thank you, Tanya!
When I received my diamond bracelet I was shocked at how absolutely gorgeous it is. You were right--it is far better looking in person than any photo could have ever shown. I wanted to especially thank you for making this an easy transaction by allowing me time to return the bracelet if I didn't care for it (which is impossible now that I see it), describing it to me in even greater detail over the phone, and
accommodating my shipping requests. You really went above and
beyond the call of duty... and I could not be happier with the
bracelet. It is truly STUNNING. Thank you!!!

Hello Tanya! My ring arrived yesterday ~ safe and sound. When I got home from work, I opened the lovely package and handed the ring box to my husband Charles so that he could present the ring to me. He turned the box toward me and opened it slowly ~ for effect ~ and then as I exclaimed my delight and reached to remove the ring, he quickly snapped the lid closed (in the fashion of Richard Gere in the movie "pretty woman" when he showed Julia Roberts the diamond necklace and earring ensemble that he borrowed for her to wear to the opera). We both laughed hysterically!!!! It is a moment I will always remember with great joy!

The ring is so pretty and so sparkly and it fits my ring finger just perfectly! It is larger than I expected from viewing your photo of the hand holding the ring. I am absolutely thrilled with this purchase and your kind generosity in making this a smooth, workable, and fun transaction for us. I hope that you and your family have a wonderful holiday filled with love, and light, and sparkles of sweet memories.
With Blessings & Gratitude, L.

~

THANK YOU TANYA!
The diamond bracelet is truly lovely. It is a dear, sweet bracelet which can be worn anytime. I have never seen one like it, so very distinctive. It must have taken so many, many hours to create it.
Thank you again for the layaway and the immediate shipping.
Excellent Customer Service! Best Wishes, M.

Hi Tanya,
Yesterday, I just received my first Ruby Lane purchase, the ruby & diamond that was one of your new arrivals this last week. The ring is absolutely gorgeous and way nicer than I was expecting. The fit for my right hand is perfect & feels great.
I hope that I love this diamond ring as much. You have so many lovely things on your shop's web at Ruby Lane, I am going crazy. Husband loves the ruby/diamond too. You'll be seeing more orders in the future.
Thanks, B.

~

Tanya, It got here!!! The ring is on my finger right now as I write this note to you. IT IS AMAZING!!!!!! ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!! TRUE TO YOUR DESCRIPTION AND PICTURES & MAY I SAY THE DIAMONDS ARE EVEN BETTER. =)))))) yeeeeyyy!!!!
I took it to the jeweler as soon as I got it, everything checks
out perfect. The diamonds are spectacular, especially the one in
the center, it sparkles like crazy. They are great quality diamonds and the ring has an amazing design. If this is the one and only antique I´m going to purchase in all my life, I´m very glad to have bought it from you.
I LOVE IT!! THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR EVERYTHING.
You Have Been Great!! L.

~

Hi Tanya
I took my ring to the jeweler on Saturday for sizing and he just went on and on about the quality of the workmanship and how clean the diamonds were. He told me that he forgave me for buying it from you rather than him because it was so nice. Thank you for doing all the work to get it here and for sharing such a beautiful item with me. ~A.

~

Tanya, I just received the ring and I absolutely love it! It's so beautiful. It's so far superior and better priced than any of the new rings I looked at. And I love the fact that I supported a small business instead of a chain store. Happy, happy, happy! :)
Thank you again Tanya. I'm so impressed with the ring and your outstanding customer service.
B.
I just looked at my new ring in the natural sunlight it was even more amazing!!!

~

Hi Tanya, I went to the post office and picked up the two packages from you. WOW, what more can I say everything is wonderful, there is not a thing I don't like. It's all awesome, your pictures and descriptions are excellent. The last purchase, the coral ring is perfect with the other coral pieces. I will be anticipating the arrival of the other items. Many thanks to you,
J.

Hi Tanya,
This necklace was the most that I have spent for a piece of jewelry. I feel grateful you were part of this process. The patient, direct, honest (believe me, I earnestly researched your claims) & down-to-earth honest approach that you used helped seal the deal. And I am a *HARD* person to persuade or sell. I appreciate how you respected my process, by just giving it to me straight and backing off. And when I received my necklace I understood your approach--the necklace sold itself...though you did help a bit (smile). I intend on returning to your shop.
Grateful ~ T.

~

Tanya - I was thrilled, as always, to receive one of your packages! Inside was the Tourmaline pendant and, Boy-O-Boy, it is just as pretty as you described! I have come to trust not only your wonderful taste, but the truthful descriptions of each item of jewelry you offer. You have never disappointed me, Tanya! I also received the lovely and flattering onyx earrings. The workmanship is just as you described and I am so, so happy to be able to wear them. I look forward to seeing your RubyLane site every day - I never miss a chance to purchase something of beauty and elegance from your shop. Thanks so much. E.

~

A little love from the UK!
Hi Tanya,
Just to thank you very much for all your help and effort on our behalf.
The necklace duly arrived early on Wednesday morning. Fantastic service!
Philip tells me it is wonderful, but I'm not allowed to see it for myself until Christmas Day.
I know I'm going to love it. We have been searching for something like it for a long time and I'm very excited!!
Many thanks once again, and every good wish for a very happy Christmas. B.

~

Hi Tanya!
I absolutely LOVE the sapphire and diamond bracelet. Was afraid
that the sapphire would be almost black; instead, it is a
brilliant blue. The bracelet was far more lovely than I
anticipated.
Thank you again for your lovely shop! You are a credit to Ruby Lane! I have bookmarked your shop and I will return.
I hope you have a lovely Christmas and an awesome New Year!

Thank You Tanya for the EXCELLENT service I got when I bought my
Butterfly Ring...all the way from your personal phone call, to
the FAST shipping and the little "extras" in your packaging. You are a FANTASTIC SELLER! Best I have ever come across and I have been buying online for over 10 years!!!!
I will look often at your Treasures of Jewelry ~ H.

~

Hi Tanya,
The bracelet arrived safely. It is VERY lovely! I am pleased beyond words...it matches my watch (gold and stainless steel) and my white and yellow gold wedding ring. It feels like it was custom made for me, and I have been wearing it since it came, as it just feels good and looks so good.
I will definitely keep my eye on your store for more pieces because this is as good as it gets for quality, very fair price, and great communication!
Cheers and thanks again,
A.

~

Tanya: Wow-I'm simply blown away by the beauty of this diamond ring. The sparkle and setting are outrageously stunning. Thanks so much for
everything. Best, A.

Hi Tanya
The ring arrived yesterday afternoon. It is STUNNING !! I can't tell you how pleased I was when I opened that ring box ! The wrapping was so pretty and it arrived in perfect condition. What great service !! I will enjoy the ring for many years to come, and I know my friends will be jealous. :-)
I try to treat myself every now and then to a special piece of jewelry, so I will for sure keep you in mind when the time comes. It was a real pleasure doing business with you, and I for sure will pass the word to family and friends.
Thank you again! Very Sincerely, D.

Hi Tanya, I received my rainbow tourmaline vintage pendant safely today and I am totally enchanted with it in every way!! The pendants stone is magical and the whole piece has an elegant and a old world artisan quality to it. Its definitely a most mysterious piece and looks to be quite old. Thank you for your excellent service and for getting it to me in great shape and ready for me to love and cherish it forever!! I definitely see this as
a totally handmade artisan and a one of a kind piece. Its a true blue keeper of a great pendant and I love and adore it so very much and at first sight too!! This pendant is a work of art.
Take Care, L.

Tanya~
I wanted to drop you a very sincere note of thank you's and appreciation for providing such unbelievable personal service with the ring I purchased from you! I received it today and was so surprised at how special you made opening the package! ~ AWESOME in and of itself. The ring; however, was the most special part of all! It is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!!! So much better than online and I LOVED it online! You have been a WONDERFUL person to work with and I appreciated all the notes to let me know where we were in the process of our transaction! You made this whole purchase easy and FUN!
