Hi Marc, I just got home from work and my husband said, Come look. On the window sill in its box was the Blue Zircon. It had just arrived. The invoice and certificate arrived yesterday. How absolutely beautiful, it’s all that I was looking for!!! I love the color and the cut. Is this a step cut? Anyway, I just love it and so does my husband. I really appreciate your expertise and your patience in helping me make this choice. I did look at other sites, but something told me to stick with you and I’m so happy that I did. P.S. My husband, Gary also said that if you ever think of renaming your company, his suggestion is STUNNING GEMS! I second that and will highly recommend AFRICAGEMS to others. All the best to you and your company. Brenda H. of Boston MA (bought loose blue zircon)

Marc, Received the spinel today and was very impressed. Although I do own some spinel, nothing in my collection has the eye-popping color of this stone. I say this knowing that pink isn't necessarily my first choice as a color for a colored gemstone. It will make a nice addition to my collection. Ted K. of Pasadena CA (bought loose pink spinel)

I received my ring today and am absolutely delighted with the colour of the stone and the sizing is nearly as wonderful. Thank you so very much! Sonja C. of Charlotte NC (bought loose aquamarine)

Marc, the ring is amazing! Thank you for everything. The stone is truly incredible. Take care and I will certainly share your information whenever I get the opportunity. Mike B of Detroit MI (bought custom aquamarine ring)

Thank you very much for the work you put into our order, I gotta tell you I've had a blast playing around with the different features of your website, designing different rings and such. Your website is merchandised pretty good. Tracie loves the rings the ruby has got a real good glow out in the sunlight and the spinel looks wonderful in its mount. The only real problem is the chain on the necklace it came terribly tangled and me thinks we just made it worse but no biggie we had an extra chain. Overall very pleased with order. Thanks J. Sitton of Baton Rouge LA (bought 2 custom rings)

Yellow sapphire received. I must say I expected the comment about it being very diamond looking to be a bit of exaggeration that tends to occur with sapphire, but it is exactly that, yet unique in its brilliance and flash. I am very pleased with the stone and moved to send a compliment. John H of Indiana PA (bought yellow sapphire loose gem)

My ring arrived yesterday. It is beautiful. I've been running around the house looking for different light sources to view the colour change under. Thank you so much for your help and patience. I hope I have the opportunity to purchase another item from you again sometime. Jacquie A. of Vancover CA (bought custom alexandrite ring)

Hi Marc, My little diamond has just arrived safely by FedEx and it looks beautiful, thank you so much. It's as white as I hoped it would be and the bow tie isn't that obvious because of the size of the stone, I imagine. I'm now going to have the pleasure of thinking up a setting for him. Thank you very much, I'm delighted. I think I'm going to have to keep looking in your discounted stones section! Best wishes, Lynn M of Sufflock UK (bought loose diamond)

Hi Marc, I just wanted to thank you so much for everything you've done for us with the whole ring processes. I proposed to my girlfriend on Friday, and she beyond loved the ring. Everything came out perfectly, the sapphire is stunning, and the ring was set beautifully. Thanks again! Sincerely, Lukasz S. of Chicago IL (bought loose blue sapphire & custom ring)

Hi Marc, My gem has finally arrived and it is fabulous! The colour is exactly what I had hoped it would be.... Resembling sunset and lotus flower. I inspected the packaging and nothing appears to have been tampered with... I was getting concerned but looks like all is ok. My plan is to take the pad to a local gemologist to verify and then on to Designing a ring setting. This is a retirement gift to myself .... My last day at work is just before Christmas...so hopefully the ring will be ready by then. When it's done I will send you some pictures. Thank you for all your support thru this crazy process...although I've not met you I feel like I've known you for some time. I greatly appreciate your awesome Communication with me. I love the gem! Thank you Daria L of Ontario CA (bought loose padparadscha sapphire)

Marc, my ring has just arrived. I am over the moon. It is so beautiful. Thank you and your colleagues so very much. I am hoping it will bring me luck over the coming months as I am off the hospital this afternoon to find out about my operation for breast cancer. I'm sure it will help to protect me. Thank you, once again, for your brilliant contribution to my life. Warm regards, Shoosh S. of Birmingham UK (bought custom pink sapphire ring)

Hi Marc, This is Amazing! I've never experienced such fast shipping! I was noticed on a Wednesday that my items had been shipped, and on already on the following Monday I had the parcel at home! From US to Sweden in Europe! The Tanzanites I ordered are perfectly just what I requested! Thank you very much Marc! This means a lot for me! I will for sure recommend you further and come back for more orders! Wish you a nice day! Best regards, Queenie H. of Stockholm Sweden (bought loose tanzanites)

Hi Marc, I received my ring today. It fits perfectly, the color of the topaz is beautiful! I almost wish I had chosen a larger stone. Thank you, Mary A. of Modesto CA (bought a swiss blue topaz gold ring)

Cardy was AMAZING! It took 45 minutes. Everyone warned me that I would be without my ring for weeks, and you helped me get away from that. You have been extremely responsive and fantastic for all of this. I really appreciate you, and DEFINITELY would recommend you to anyone I can. You are very much running your business very well. Not to mention, my ring is beautiful!!! Exactly what I wanted. Katie F. of San Francisco CA (bought alexandrite engagement ring)

Hi Marc, I got my ring yesterday.. love it! Looks great! I like the way the prongs are done and the ruby is beautiful! Thanks, Brigitte L. (bought Chatham Ruby and AfricaGems made the ring)

Dear Marc, I have a confession to make. I lost my original engagement ring, a Stuller setting for an asscher cut and a cushion Chatham Sapphire. I wanted a ring that looked close to that original one. You made it happen! Actually, your mil grain work and stone setting was better than the original which was off centered. Thank you. Regards, Christine Y (bought Chatham Blue Sapphire and we made the ring)

Marc, Received the stone. It’s beautiful! We now have a new place to order stones from and feel confident in the quality! Thank You, Clayton M. (bought loose pink tourmaline gem)

Hi Marc, Thank you, I received the stone on Wednesday as you indicated. I appreciate the quick turn around time. Pleasure doing business with you and your site will be one of my top gem shopping sites after this business experience. I did enjoy the extra haribo snack. Thank you once again, Danny C. (bought a round 1 carat loose blue sapphire for engagement ring)

First diamonds are in the mail. Had gone away for a week and nobody at home dropped the mail in the box. Apologies. Picked up my pendant with the new ones and they look beautiful. My next purchase will be emeralds...Thanks, Marc. Li B (bought and exchanged enhanced blue diamonds)

Hi Marc, The bracelet arrived this morning and as you said it looks stunning and I know she will love it. Could you please send a Cert of Authenticity (Similar to the one sent for the 2 loose stones) and a full invoice for the total amount for insurance purposes at my end. If you need to send copies by post please send to, Alan H. (bought a tanzanite bracelet)

Hi Marc, I just wanted to say how delighted I was to receive the Tanzanite bracelet for Christmas. I understand from my husband, Alan, that you were extremely helpful with the making of the bracelet, it sounds like it caused a few problems at times, not least due to Alans bank! I just wanted to let you know that I am thrilled with the bracelet, the stones are beautiful and it looks lovely, so thank you for all your help! I hope you and your family had a good Christmas and very best wishes for a healthy, happy New Year. Kind regards, Sue H. (husband bought tanzanite bracelet)

Hi Marc, I just received the opal and it is gorgeous, as always I am very pleased with my purchase. I was looking at different pendants, it's a Christmas present for my daughter. I saw a multi-gem one that I liked. Item pendant 650870s. Should I order it on line or could you just do it. Also will you extend the 25 off discount on that item? Again, thanks for all your help,Terese U. (bought stunning loose black opal gem)

Good Afternoon Marc, Thank you so much selling me this amazing stone, I can assure you it will be well loved. I thought you might enjoy how much people love the blue spinel you sold me. I posted a few photos on PS last night and will likely post more in the next few days. Again thank you, I really do love it and I am wearing it even as I type this! Katherine S. (bought large blue spinel gemstone)

My wifes stone got here this morning. She was in awe of how gorgeous a stone it was. It is replacing a stone in a ring that was stolen and in our opinion we think it is even nicer than the stone it replaced. Once set we will be whole again lol. Again thank you for having the stone available and for you call concerning shipping. We will certainly recommend you to any of our friends who are looking for QUALITY stones. Doc Mc (bought loose oval padparadscha gemstone)

Hi Marc- just wanted to thank you for finding the 4.4mm size for me, and also for the quick refund on the 4mm. So glad I found your website! Cristy S. (bought loose white sapphires)

Hi Marc, I just want to say thank you so much! The pendant is so beautiful..well done! The bale also fits perfectly. I have a question about the negative ions created by tourmaline..now can one just wear it to experience the negative ions or does there have to be pressure applied to release the negative ions? I'm just curious. Thank you Dawn T (bought custom tourmaline pendant)

Marc, The ring arrrived yesterday and it is gorgeous! Thank you so much for creating the perfect piece with this sapphire. This ring will become an heirloom. Henry G (bought custom spessartite garnet ring)

Marc, Thank you so much! You may have thought it took longer than expected but we thought it was quite expedient. Thank you for continually confirming for us our decision to purchase from Africa Gems. This has been a wonderful transaction. We'll be here all day so as soon as it arrives I'll let you know. Happy Valentine's Day, Jennefer P of San Deigo CA (bought custom emerald ring & band)

I'll put them in the mail today. I want you to know that I really appreciate how amenable you have been. Your A+ rating is exactly right. I will continue to do business with you when I have other needs. My sister has also been checking out the site for sapphires based on the excellent service I received. Thanks again, Jim W.of Bangor MI (bought loose emeralds)

Will do! I'm in Denver on business until Saturday. I'll get it shipped out ASAP upon my return - next Monday most likely. Thank you for all of your help. Especially your guarantee and return policy. Made purchasing the gem online much more comfortable. Ironically, my jeweler also loosely knew your father and had a very good opinion of him. Thanks again Marc! Doug M from Camarillo CA (bought loose blue sapphire)

Marc, Your fantastic customer service makes it easy to support AfricaGems! Looking forward to surprising my wife with the Onyx ring. Regards, Michael S. from Boise ID (bought onyx diamond pendant)

Hi Marc, So far I'm very happy with the sapphire I purchased. My plan is to mount it in a tanzanite ring that I have (the tanzanite is very light in color and I've never been happy with it which is a surprise since it's also a Levian purchase). The setting has two sides with the stone suspended in between. I think the light will catch it magnificently! Thanks for checking on my order! Rita K. from Garland TX (bought Chatham emerald stone)

Hi Marc, Just to let you know that the stone was delivered today. Pitty it is dark now so can not see the true stae, but I am happy to see it here with the certs!I hope to do business with you again in the future! Thank you for you help, patience, Regards Wim D. of Dubai (bought loose oval alexandrite)

the rings have arrived they are absolutely stuning ! i thank you with all my heart and i pay no duties thanks to you THANK YOU VERY MUCH I HAVE NO WORDS TO THANKS !! Mencaglia A of Bucharest Romania (bought two blue topaz diamond rings)

Dear Marc, I just received the four turquoise gemstones that I had ordered. They are beautiful. I am very happy with the quality and will be ordering some more gemstones soon.Thanks Baljinder K. (bought loose turquoise gems)

Marc, I just wanted to let you know that I received the ring today and it’s beautiful, she’s gonna love it! Thank you again for all you’ve done. I was concerned about ordering something liker this over the internet but you’ve made this entire process very easy and your communication with me has been outstanding. Everything was exactly as you described it…perfect! David M. of Atlanta GA (bought custom Alexandrite diamond ring)

Loose Ruby Treatments.
Most loose rubies available in the gem markets today are heat treated. Most commercial grades of ruby under 3 carat sizes are from the area called Mong Hsu in Burma. These rubies are almost unrecognizable as gem rubies in the raw uncut state. They are a very strong grade of purple and almost opaque and only after heat treatment is the color and clarity good enough to be faceted into gem rubies. Many of the Mong Hsu rubies are heavily fractured. These fractures detract from the clarity and brilliance of the gems. To make the rubies more transparent, the rubies are heated in a flux of borax which repairs these fractures and increases the value of the gems. To read in detail about this treatment process see Richard Hughes excellent website about Ruby treatments .

AfricaGems Complies With The Block Burmese Jade Act of 2008
