    Gavin



         

    Many thanks for your reply to the concerns raised in Meeshoo's thread and also to Andrew for his reply yesterday.

    I was watching at the start of the launch and the very first item, a Tanzanian ruby ring kindled my interest. So when the website was up and running I followed the link to the Enhancements pages, where it details the treatment of this gemstone......
    I was rather hoping it would be untreated...:o ....oh well... it is still a beautiful gemstone.

    There have been comments that Don Kogen is involved with this new venture and I, for one, would be grateful if this could be confirmed....or not. MTIA.

I'm guessing it was probably more like 3, so it would be nice to know that.
    Thanks Miss magpie I will pass that onto Vicky and the producers. We had a few rings that fit your discrition. Some there were three of and some only two. But I agree we should let you know how many are in stock when there is low numbers. Thanks for the feedback

    Thanks Gavin once again for your comprehensive replies.

    I just wanted to tell you that coated Tanzanite has appeared in the UK (sold, unfortunately by reputable companies to unsuspecting customers) - hence my concern. I believe the companies were selling these in good faith but had obviously been let down by their suppliers. You'll be pleased to know that I don't believe what I read on the internet!!! Good to know that Rocks and Co won't ever be selling it though.

    Oh dear, Gemstone Gav. Absolutely nothing in this post made me change my mind. Quite the opposite, in fact. I would also love to know why 'an earlier draft' of yours contained so much contradictory information.

How many people will read that statement and go off and never buy? the ones who don't get on here thats for sure,

    Well done Gav for getting out of the warm sunshine (gggrrrr) and coming in and answering the queries and the same for the Bennetts who do the same, same for BKGemstones etc. Its fabulous service.

    THIS is what makes this site like no other so well done Graham, cos if this wasn't here neither would any of us be.
    Absolutely concur with what you've said Darls. ST has been a force for good, thanks to Graham - even though he might feel at times that he has spawned a devil child!! :D


    And to Gavin, thanks again for your further explanation. Good on yer mate! I should have put smilies after my gentle nudge - sorry about that :D:D

    well done on your latest venture. hope you're pleased with how things are going. all the best from Monsoon Central UK!
