Hi Debra, The necklace arrived in today's mail, it is very beautiful. I am so happy that I purchased it from you. Thank you for all the care you took in wrapping and protecting it. Now I am excited to have two absolutely beautiful sautoirs. I happened upon my first piece by accident. It was interesting that I was googling the description of my piece when I discovered the piece that you had and that I am now so lucky to own. I have also discovered that I have two more sautoirs at least one of which is Native American. They are not as beautiful as this one and my other with the basket of flowers. Thank you again for an excellent transaction. Nancy Mueller
Hi Debra, I received the ring on Friday. It is fabulous!!! Thank you for working with me. I look forward to many more purchases. Gretchen

Debra, The Heron pin arrived today and I'm perfectly delighted! It's a beauty! Photos don't do it justice. I'm a big collector of Mexican vintage jewelry and I have a few pieces created by Gerardo Lopez. This pin will make a lovely addition. It's been a pleasure doing business with you. Thanks for your excellent customer service! I will surely return. Best wishes, Susan
Hi, Debra: I just opened the tie clip and wanted to drop you a line to tell you how thrilled I am! It looked very, very nice when I viewed it online - but it was even lovelier when I opened the box. Even my husband - who avoids ties and suits as much as possible - said it is a beautiful piece. I really think my boss will be touched at the little tribute to his Italian heritage. The accompanying printout with its description and the box with the gift bag inside were, again, perfect. You made my day - thanks! Kathy
Hi Debra, I received the pastry server and it is awesome!!! Thanks, Gretchen

Best regards, Geertui, a very happy first time customer of yours

Hi Debra. I received the package today. Thanks for the quick shipment. It's an amazing piece of jewelry, absolutely beautiful. I love vintage jewelry, it reminds me so much of my mother. In addition, the bracelet is a perfect length, goes around the wrist instead of the middle of your hand! You were the first Ruby Lane merchant, and I was a little confused on how it all worked, plus nervous. You came through with customer service, quick delivery and a wonderful piece of jewelry. Five stars for you. Hope to buy from you again, soon. Fran

Hi Debra...the mailman just brought my bracelet to the door. It is beautiful and just what I was looking for! I found so many filigree bracelets of this style, but I was hunting for one that had no colored stones on it. This one is perfect and will go with everything. My mother left me a lovely ring that is a great match with it. Thank you so much for your prompt emails and detailed explanations. I will definitely shop at your site again. Many thanks! Jude
