"The Tanzanite was delivered today at about 11:45am EST.  I want you to know that the gem I received is beautiful and has impressed everyone that has seen it.  It's hard for a lot of these people to believe I bought and paid for a gem from a company in Africa whom I have never done business with.  I trust my instincts.  I have been in the jewelry business since 1987 and am always looking for new suppliers.  With the great experience I have had with your company I would like to use you as a supplier as well."

"I just wanted to say thanks again to Lapigems for all of your help with my Tanzanite purchase. The color, cut and clarity of the Tanzanite that I have received is far superior to all others I have seen.  I had been looking for quite a long time before making my decision, so I have seen lots and lots of Tanzanite.  As your site promises,  the best of the best.  That's what I was looking for, and that's exactly what I received! My jeweler is very, very impressed with my Tanzanite, which I am having set in a ring.  I am very excited to see it!  I want to purchase another, I just have to make up my mind on what shape/size I want!"

I cannot tell you how impressed I am with your company! I ordered my Aquamarine on Sunday, the order was filled on Monday, shipped on Tuesday, promised to arrive on Friday, but got here on Thursday. The presentation was excellent. It is nice to know that something that was special to me was not just dropped in an envelope and stuffed in a box. I took the Aquamarine to the jeweler today to see if it would fit the setting I had chosen, it is a perfect fit. The jeweler I selected is the only GIA certified jeweler in Salem. He verified the Aquamarine was as represented, and felt that I had received exactly what I was promised. The stone is being set next week and the ring will be presented next Saturday. I plan on wrapping the ring back in the original packing the stone arrived in. Thank you for your excellent service, quality product and genuine concern for a very satisfied customer. If you ever get a request for a reference from anyone in my area, or any area, please feel free to give them my email address and I will gladly share my experience with them. Thank you very much.”

"This morning at 9:55am FedEx delivered your package containing our 3.94 carat oval Tanzanite.  We were particularly impressed with all the protective packaging used in delivering this outstanding gemstone. This absolutely flawless Tanzanite gemstone is truly breathtaking in its sheer beauty in color, clarity and cut and needless to say we are totally thrilled with our purchase.  A true bonus with this purchase is the accompanying certificate of authenticity and the GIA certificate showing an enlarged photo of the gem along with its I.D. number; a nice touch by your company. We used your web site to download the history of this gemstone to complete the background of its origin and to complete the true pedgree of this stone.  It is reassuring to know that we are doing business with an outstanding company. 
Thank you again for making my wife so happy on our 46th wedding anniversary.  Please feel free to use any statements contained in this correspondence in your advertising of your fine products and service."

"Thank you for getting the Pink Tanzanites for me!  I am going to have them placed in the earrings with the 0.30 carat diamonds I purchased. Your guidance allowed me to be a more frugal and informed consumer. Even though the diamonds cost more, it is the Pink Tanzanite that is the main stone/gem that the earring is designed around.  Diamonds are everywhere but your Tanzanites are one of a kind and I feel fortunate to have this set for my wife.  I thank you for your time and caring. Extremely happy customer."

Thanks again for your service. No-one else on the market - NOT EVEN TIFFANY & CO. has Tsavorite like this for sale.  I'm so excited to design the ring for this stone."

As far as the stone is concerned, it is an absolutely marvellous gemstone of the most distinct cut and quality that I have ever beheld. It is a highly desirable beauty of excellent proportion and the most beautiful sparkling blue that does justice to and gives credit to the workmanship of the "artist" that painstakingly cut it to its' current finished  beauty. It will always be treasured for its' uniqueness. A true treasure. Thank you."

They probably don't want to hear I found one on my own....and on the internet of all places....as a small business owner I can appreciate that. But honestly I don't feel as though this was just any internet purchase with just any tanzanite company. I am very proud of the fact that this came straight to me from East Africa practically straight from the source, that makes it even that more special. And I am very proud of this stone not to mention what I paid for it and the investment value of it."

"I wanted to thank you for the prompt delivery and oversight of my order. I wanted to order a nice heirloom quality tanzanite for each of my 5 daughters. I have a few nice pieces of tanzanite I have acquired over the years, or so I thought. Boy are my existing pieces of Tanzanite pale in color compared to a AAA Tanzanite.  Now that I have seen what a AAA quality tanzanite is, I have my eye on the bigger beautiful pieces of Tanzanite that you have to offer. Also, one of the pieces I ordered was a bright green fancy tanzanite. I had never heard of the different rare colors of tanzanite. I am substituting the bright green tanzanite for my daughter's birthstone of Peridot, which I don't like at all. I am considering a choice piece of Tsavorite for the other daughter who also has an August birthday. Finally, the Malaia Garnets I purchased for myself are gorgeous and will make a beautiful bracelet. The bright orange color is spectacular. There should be just enough stones left to also create a nice pair of dangling earrings and maybe a small pendant.    I will not hesitate to purchase other heirloom pieces from your company. Thank you again."

"Please excuse my delay in letting you know I received the tsavorite.  The stone was purchased on March 18th and arrived promptly and securely only a few days later. I knew I was pleased with the tsavorite, but wanted to have a second opinion from my local jeweler.  I took it to a very high end jeweler here in Southlake, Texas, to be set and appraised.  Needless to say, my jeweler was skeptical of my purchasing a gemstone over the internet from an unknown source in Kenya.  After they completed their testing and reports, I printed out the quality report, grading report and mining report for comparison.  As you can guess, the results were identical.  My jeweler was very impressed with the quality of the stone and the thoroughness of the information provided. He agreed completely with your assessment of the cutting, color and clarity.  Thank you for offering truly quality material in a very professional manner.  This may have been my first experience with your company, but please be assured that it will not be my last."

Once again thanks to all of you. Best wishes to all,  Rob.

"The tanzanite arrived here safe and sound.  I took it to my jeweler today.  He said that it measured exactly the carat weight as listed on your website, and was also impressed with what a nice stone it is.  The tanzanite that I've seen in local stores does not even compare in color and quality to the one I purchased through Lapigems!  The pictures and video online looked great, but in person it looks absolutely wonderful.  I am looking forward to making my next purchase!"

"I am now in possession of my Tanzanite.  I love it - it's everything I wanted.  My wife and I are deciding how to mount it. Thank you very much for your kind salesmanship and help. I compared some prices at a local high end jewelry store and I feel as if I got a very good price on such a large Tanzanite.  I'll return for more sales in the future."

"I just received the third tanzanite that I have ordered from you in the last six months.  As were the other stones, it is exquisitely beautiful.  I have shopped worldwide for tanzanite and your company provides the best quality stones that I have found available anywhere.  It is such a pleasure doing business with a company that takes the time to answer my questions and provides excellent customer service.  I can see why you have stayed in business for so long.  I'll never  look anywhere else for tanzanite.  You've got me as a life long customer.  And I will be back for a fourth stone in the near future.  Thank you.."

"I recently purchased an outstanding Tanzanite stone that I have had made into a stunning ring and that even the jeweller commented on the quality and colour of the stone. Yesterday I received a matched pair of matched Rhodolite Garnets and was blown away by the colour and sparkle. I am now saving for a larger Tanzanite for a pendant. Thank you for my remarkable stones, you will be hearing from me in the future.

"I am absolutely stunned by the color and beauty of my new tanzanite.  It is truly incredible!  I already picked out a setting for a ring and had the stone set.  It is breaktaking.  My jeweler said I got a "great deal" on the stone, and I am convinced it was worth the money.  I am saving up for my next purchase!  I am so excited by my new ring - and have received sooo many compliments on the stone.  Gorgeous!  Thanks so much!

"I wanted to touch base and let you know that I received my tanzanite!!  WOW, it is BEAUTIFUL!  I must admit I can be hard to please because I just love only high quality gemstones that have great sparkle and deep color. This stone has ALL of that and more!!  I must also take a moment to compliment you on your service.  I couldn’t praise you enough for your help and attentiveness in this transaction. The first time I talked to you by phone you patiently answered all my questions.  From that moment, to all the emails in between and finally the follow-up in making sure I received my package in the mail, I appreciated your kindness and hard work.  Your service is AAA just as the quality of your stones!! ."

"They arrived today as expected and I am thrilled. This was technically the third shipment I have ordered from you guys and I have been more than satisfied with every item I have purchased. Currently I have bought 14 individual orders of fancy and non-fancy tanzanite. I had the opportunity while living in Tanzania last year to visit the TanzaniteOne mining facility, where I made quite a number of purchases. I wanted to tell you that the quality and price of your stones are rivaled only by purchasing tanzanite straight from the mine in Merelani.Thank you for your amazing products and customer services. You can definitely consider me a client.

"I received my Tanzanite this morning. I am so excited to tell you that this Tanzanite is beyond belief.  The color is wonderful and the red flashes are teriffic.  It has red flashes in all light, even in sunlight.  This stone is by far the best I have seen, and is also better than the one I have, which is nice also.   You just can't find this quality here.   As I told you it was dug up on my husband's birthday this year and the Tanzanite was discovered at the same time he was on his way back from a tour in Viet Nam, so the stone has a really special meaning for me. To have the information on my Tanzanite, from the date it was dug out of the mine, a picture of before and after it was cut, not to mention the appraisal, is priceless."

“Since first meeting you at the beginning of this year, I truly cannot tell you how excited I have been throughout the process of identifying a uniquely remarkable flawless Tanzanite, reviewing and selecting a custom ring design pattern from an assortment of designs that you drafted, and above all how much I have increased my knowledge of gemstones and comfort level with purchasing gemstones online.  Sheelagh, you and your colleagues are simply amazing!  I would never think of anyone else to turn to for future gemstone purchases.  The process from choosing a gemstone to creating a custom ring has been effortless.  Your business practices, attention to detail and expert advice is unlike any I have come across.

"My tanzies finally got here today.  My jaw dropped over the 6.88 carat round.  I brought it to my designer, who has been trying to sell me some of her extensive collection and she admitted her gems are not the quality of your stones.  She came up with a great idea for the pear earrings.  She could not believe the color saturation on the smaller pears stones.  They look like sapphires.  Once again I am in awe of your tanzanite.  I wish you continued success.  My son is now looking on your site when I explained the future availability of tanzanite.  He is only 14!!!."

"The stone and the pendant are truly gorgeous, my sincere appreciations to the jewelers and the crafts persons for the beautiful work. As for you going out of the way to help me out in an unusual circumstances... That's just may be among the best customer experience I can ever recall. I came back to Lapigems for a bigger second purchase based on the service experience but this one takes the cake. I'm sure word of mouth is your biggest promotional tool. And feel free to quote me on it in your testimonials. "

"Just thought I would share this story with you. my wife and I recently upgraded her engagement diamond to a 2 carat stone. we attempted to set the tanzanite I purchased from you using the same chain jewelry store we bought the diamond from. their jeweler said he would not work with the tanzanite because if anything were to happen to it in the setting process, the store would not be able to replace such a high quality stone. Every employee in the store came over to admire the tanzanite and each stated they had never seen such a high quality tanzanite. I am just glad my wife was there to hear them all gushing over the stone ."

"Just wanted to say that my Tanzanite arrived today.  I must admit I felt very cautious and unsure about buying something so important to me online.  (I needed the stone to remake my lost engagement ring!)
I am nothing but impressed by my entire experience, from how fast it arrived, to the quality of the stone, the amount of information that came with it, the care and protection in the packaging, your very informative website and that the image you advertise (and show in detail) is in fact the item being purchased.  I will highly recommend your company to friends/family etc and I really do thank you for my gorgeous piece of tanzanite.  I shall be using you again in the future (my gem shopping will not end here!)
Many, many thanks and keep up the good work.

“I have just received my Tanzanite back from safeguard for appraisal, they said the Tanzanite had excellent clarity and very good colour saturation. I am writing to thank you and your excellent company for providing me with such an exceptional tanzanite. The valuation came in much higher then I expected and was higher then your stated appraisal, which I am very pleased about. I hope to purchase another tazanite stone from you in the near future and I won't hesitate in recommending your company to anybody for such excellent service.  I like the metal box in came in and the whole documentation it came with also."

“I just want you to know that I just received the third stone I have purchased from your company and I am totally pleased with the quality of this Tanzanite. I have held a GG degree from GIA since 1984 and have had a hard time finding the quality of stones you source on your site. Your company is a great find. I will always use you as my source of gem stones.

 

Your stones speak for themselves. If you were in the US I would ask for a position in your company as I am impressed with your goods. Easy to sell what you believe in and not found in today's market.”

De aquamarijn is vandaag geleverd, deze maandag morgen om 09.13u. Mijn derde aankoop bij Lapigems is opnieuw top kwaliteit. Bijna ongeloofelijk. Op mijn zoektocht heb ik veel edelstenen gezien maar nooit in de juiste kleur en schittering.Het was nu gemakkelijker om de edelsteen in België binnen te brengen, ik ken reeds de juiste manier en weg.Ik ben zeer tevreden en zal uw compagnie altijd aanbevelen. Het maakt mijn dag perfect!!
