 Aloha, I received my order from you and am very pleased with the items. I love the Number 8 turquoise cabochons. I order some from you some while ago and loved the quality. Hope you continue to carry them. Thanks, Patricia (Hawaii)

Terry, not in a million years would I believe that I would sell the a necklace that is in the StonesNSilver Design Gallery! A woman in Vermont was googling for "Fire Opal" found the necklace! Her boyfriend then bought it for her 50th birthday! Power of the internet! Cindy

I received my order today,what great service and the items are beautiful. Looking forward to doing business in the future. I found the agate to be exceptional the jasper has great colour, please let me know if any newslabs enter your inventory... thanks again - Michele J.

I received this order today. Thank you so much for the fast shipment. Sincerely, Jami L.

I just received your beads. They were on time in NY. I thank you a lot for your very fast shipment and wish you a lot of good things! Katia

I am really so impressed and appreciative in the care taken in the packaging of the orders. It truly is superb and the best I have seen. And, last but certainly not least --- the beads were just fantastic. Thanks again for having such quality merchandise, reasonable prices for such quality, the great variety you carry in stones and shapes, finding new and unusual pieces, and taking the time for such careful packaging in your shipping department. Carol C.

I received my order by Wednesday and I enjoyed everything. I was totally pleased. You are a wonderful company and very nice to do business with. I already told two people about your site. I will order again. I want those birds on a string!! Thank you so very much. Have a great day. Cristine M.

Thanks for the speedy delivery of my recent order and for calling me concerning a substitution. Quality is just as if I had handpicked them! Look forward to doing more business with you and hopefully coming to you store soon! Thanks again Sandie S.

I received my package today and I am so pleased. Everything is wonderful and the Zuni Bears are just what I was hoping for. You are the best and I will return for more. Hugs, Alba

Hi Everyone I received the beads. I have never seen brecciated mookaite beads before, only rough specimens and slabs.They are wonderful. One of my favourite stones. Thank you so very much. All the best - Jenny S.

Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I got the strand of Number 8 today!! It is Gorgeous! Lynda M.

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I love the variety and high quality of the beads you offer, and I have not been able to find any other website that offers anything close to what you have. Any item I have purchased from you is always at least as beautiful as the photos depict, and usually even more beautiful. There is a difference in what you offer vs. what the other bead websites offer, and this difference has made you my favorite resource when I'm buying beads. Like most people, I've been buying less lately, but please hang in there! I believe your prices are entirely fair, especially considering the quality, the service, and the uniqueness of your products. Thanks for being there! Sincerely, Debra Hokanson

Hello StonesNSilver Ladies ! Hope your New year is going well so far and that you're looking forward to the upcoming bead shows. You've asked several questions of your customers recently r.e. what we'd like you to begin carrying, etc. Here are my thoughts: Perhaps consider carrying some spacer-type beads of copper, antiqued brass, silver,etc. (e.g. materials that would complement more natural/organic-looking designs). Mainly, though, please continue to focus on less-common stones with classic and unusual cuts. I try to emphasize the beauty of the stone(s) in my pieces, and you by far provide the best quality in terms of offering less-common stones, excellent cuts, and well- drilled holes. While your prices may be a bit more expensive than some of the "huge" online sources, I would much rather pay for the excellent quality of stones and also be rewarded with the fine service that you have always provided for me in my year and a half or so as a customer. So, in my opinion, change is good, of course, and I look forward to seeing what will be offered in 2009, but please keep doing a great job with the quality types of stones you currently offer! Kathy Olsen

I like the fact that you hand select your beads and I rely on your word and knowledge to tell me exactly what I am buying. I tell my friends about your site and that your merchandise is not low priced but that you are reliable in shipping quickly and that you tell us exactly what we are getting. Please continue to educate us about what we are buying and continue to clearly and accurately describe your merchandise. I love that you are so knowledgeable about turquoise. Happy 2009 Anna Ashford

Hey, I think you are doing a wonderful job! Your prices are just fine considering the constant quality you provide. There are always going to be folks who want a "deal" regardless of any price you provide...I frequent yard sales and thrift shops and there they are, trying to get a rock bottom price reduced! I wouldn't take it to provide a service/product quality/shop-from-home convenience combo that is a joy to deal with. And a lovely website with yummy looking stones lovingly displayed. A toast to your efforts and obvious love of what you shows! I am a Phoenix native and have yet to attend the Tucson gem and bead shows ( I have a recurring vision of hitchhiking home in my underwear, with smoke coming out of my wallet!) I'll let you do the dangerous job of shopping (for now). Peggy M

I just wanted you to know that I received my order last week and I absolutely 110% satisfied!! The turquoise and spiny oyster beads are fantastic. Again, I'm so glad I found your site. Thanks a million. A very happy customer, Lisa M.

I received my order today, and I just had to let you know how wonderfully surprised I was not only with the beautiful merchandise, but also with the supurb delivery service. I appreciate a business like yours, and I will be back! Mary F.

The parcel has arrived and I am very satisfied. Thank you very much! Odile H. (Finland)

Thank you so much for your super fast shipping. My order was a small one but you treated it as if it was a really big one. You guys are great! Sarah W.

I just wanted to let you know that I received my order today. Shipping was exceptionally fast and the stones are just gorgeous. Thank you so very much and I will definitely be ordering more from you. You are an amazing Seller and I'm so glad I found you. I'm new to beading and you have inspired me to strive for great designs. Lyn P.

I just wanted to thank you once again for: Super fast shipping ( I think you guys may have a shop at the end of my driveway, you nearly deliver it BEFORE I order it!), Wonderful quality (I can always count on lovely workmanship, it is such a treat to buy from you!), and killer prices ( I can always find "such-a-deal" here, you have pretty much ruined me for retail shopping) guys could teach "how-to" courses in doing it is a pleasure to do business with you and I wish you the best, you can tell that you love what you do, and your customers are the happy recipients!

Hello, just wanted to thank you for the wonderful beads I ordered - this was my first order and I am so pleased. I would like to email a picture of the georgous necklace I made which is on display at a local southerwestern art gallery. I cannot seem to find your email - so would appreciate your reply.

I was more than pleased with the Coral and MOP squash necklace from the SG Pence estate! Consider it the center star of my small collection; the picture, though beautiful just could not do it justice and capture the shimmering elegance. Love your web site, Ray.

WOW! I don't know what to use first but it's going to be spectaular. Thank you. Brenda P

I decided to order my jewelry making supplies from the internet this year, and I shopped at several different online stores. When I received my orders I couldn't believe what a difference there was in your products. The prices are excellent, but the quality of your gemstones far surpasses all of the others - even the "mega" stores that I see advertised in all of the beading magazines. Thank you so much, and please keep up the great work!!! S Stephens

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I received all my treasures and (as usual!) am once again delighted! You have a beautiful selection of jewelry in a wide range of prices and I can always count on your website representation being true to the item ordered. It is always a pleasure to open my order and see something lovely (and your quick shipping is an extra treat). Peggy M

Woo-hoo! The gorgeous larimar beads arrived today - they are so nice and I am so thrilled that I went ahead and got them. I have been pricing larimar so many places and there is such a variety of quality with the better quality almost astronomical in cost. This was a really nice deal. Thank you for the lovely beads. Mabel T

I don't know what to say. These Larimar stones are just beautiful. All perfect. Thank You, Brenda P

I wanted to let you know I received my second package today. Thank you very much...the Arizona Wild Horse stones are beautiful! These are the first ones I've bought. I can't wait to make bracelets with them! I'll be checking every day to see what else you brought back from Tucson! The one of a kind Larimar strands were just beautiful...they sure sold quickly, didn't they? I hope some day you find that stone in a 12 or 14 mm coin...I'm crazy about the coin and the M & M shaped beads! They would be really expensive, but I'd probably have to splurge! Thanks again! Margaret B

Thanks SS, as you probably know I have just ordered the beads. Can't wait to get them. Had my necklace I made from your Castle Dome Turq, out last night, and love it. Thanks again Marilyn

Hi folks. I just wanted to let you know I LOVE both of these items! Thank you so much. I hope to shop with you again soon. Kathy R

I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU!! I received my order today. Talk about fast shipping. I will definitely do business again with your company and will spread the word. Thanks again. Danna H

I contacted you yesterday about my order not arriving yet but it was in my mailbox yesterday. My mother-in-law absolutely loved the gaspeite earrings. I was tempted to keep them for myself. Then I saw the e-mail today that I am a lucky shopper award recipient so I look forward to doing future business with you. Thank you and Happy Holidays! Susan C

Thank You for your prompt delivery of my order. It was even lovelier than the photo of it. Spiney oyster hearts have a beautiful color that seems to the right thing for my skintone. Thanks Again, Leslie D

Just wanted to thank you for your speedy shipment of my latest order. The wild horse bracelet is just beautiful, it is a perfect fit and a really lovely piece of jewelry! It is such a pleasure to deal with you, always a pleasant experience! Hope your holidays are enjoyable....looking forward to future shopping with you! Take care...Peggy M

I just received my order. I want to THANK YOU for outstanding service and an amazing product. I will be ordering from you again and again! Happy Holidays! Gwen K

Hi, I've just received my third order from you and I'm still impressed! The heishi are particularly fine quality. Just wanted to say thanks again! Carol

Every now and then I order stones that don't live up to billing, but so far, NEVER from stonesnsilver. The pictures are perfect, prices fantastic, and you all have some of the nicest sugilite around. I'm afraid I'm now addicted! Thanks! Megan M

I've just received my Sleeping Beauty heishi and spiney oyster nuggets - all little beauties! It's great to be able to access such high-quality beads at such an affordable price. I'm just sorry I didn't jump on those flat charoite nuggets last night when I spotted them - they're gone now, but a repeat order for more spiney is on its way to you. Thanks a million for your prompt and friendly service! Cheers from Ireland -- Carol

Hi, Received my order today - sooner than I expected! Everything was beautiful! I was disappointed that the sponge coral faceted rice beads were out of stock. Will these be restocked or are they gone forever? Hope not! The Lapis Nevada, my personal favorite, was lovely! It is so very difficult to find anything but chips since the Four Clovers mine closed. Hope you'll carry more; would love to have a heads-up when you have more in stock! Adios, Shannon

Just received the 3 necklaces and they are outstanding! Thank so very much for thoughtful packaging and the care you took; we appreciate it so much. Thanks for the pen and magnet, too! Bright Blessings, Barb

Hi to all A quick line to say thank you for my recent order with the suprise pack of rare stone samples. It was a lovely thought, I've just been cofirming what they all were. The rhodocrosite strand you sent in the order was beautiful. Thank you for such beautiful gems, my orders never disappoint me. Rosemary in the UK

Just a quick note to say Thank you for your fabulous new Gemstone Color Guide. Not only is it beautiful, but makes identification and shopping so much easier. Not many folks have thought of this, so, ho! and many blessings. Paula

WOW. What a bunch of knock-out stones!!! Thank you! Ralph

I loved the stones and other items I saw on your site. Your website is one of the most convenient and easiest to use that I've seen. Good job! Joan M.

Hi! I just had to let you know how happy I am with the aquamarine rondelles I just received. I hang my head when I admit that I had ordered some from another website and was appalled at the quality. Their picture did not match what I got. So I sent them back immediately and ordered from you. The beads look exactly like the picture and the quality is splendid. I know my jewelry will be beautiful. Thanks for carrying such good quality beads. I will be ordering again...and again...and again. Kim K

I just received my shipment today and am very pleased with the Carico Lake pendant and beads. I took a trip to Nevada (Laughlin) about a week ago I think I would rather have a nice chunk of Nevada turquoise than hang out in casinos! This is my prize to myself after getting (mildly) fleeced.....Thanks for the speedy shipment! Peggy M

Received my first order from you and loved it so much I ordered more. Thanks for the great product and great price points!! Chris T

I just want to take the opportunity to compliment you and your people on a truly beautiful and well developed website, especially the huge selection of stones you have available. Paula

I wanted to say how wonderful all the different stones are which you sell. I just started making and selling jewelry in Tulsa and appreciate you explaining where each stone came from. The dry creek is my favorite so far. Thank you...have a great day! Pamela W

Hi, I got my order and as before I was very satisfied with your stones. You must have guessed by now how I like larimar. In fact there is no gemstone shop selling larimar in Korea. When I found out I could make an international order at your site, I was very happy because you have some incredible larimar pieces. Thank you again. See you until I make my next order. Bye Yours sincerely, You Jeong from Republic of Korea

The necklace arrive this morning at about half past ten! That's amazingly fast! I don't know who packaged the piece, but it arrived safe and sound in perfect condition. I am delighted to add it to my collection. Very handsome. I very much appreciate your good efforts on my behalf. All good wishes Cordially, Wayne C.

Oh, I can tell right now that your site is going to be tough to stay away from! Wish I'd found you earlier. My order came today, and I'll be able to finish a necklace this wknd, thanks to your additions. Went ahead and signed up for your newsletter, and signed in with an account with you. Once my 'must do' work is finished, I'll come back and pick out some things just for myself. Thanks again for offering cool stuff, and having an easy website to browse through. Nancy

Terry. I love your new site. It is so nice. I look forward to purchasing more items from you in the future. Laura S

Just to say thank you for such a swift service - I ordered on 17th May, & received my Kingman turquoise (which is beautiful by the way) in the UK 3 days later! I am very impressed with all your stock - I can't seem to source such original stones from the UK, so have had to look 'across the pond'. I'm very glad I did! Sandra W


Just wanted to let you know I have received my dry creek bracelet and it is beautiful. It is bigger than expected,and heavy. I love it. Thank you Mrs Collins

The carved pendants exceeded my expectations (which, given your track record over the years, is REALLY amazing!) I hope you’ll be able to acquire and offer more carved pendants … if you do, the turnover should be almost instantaneous! As always, thank you for offering the very finest stones … and the greatest customer service. Both are appreciated more than you know. Best wishes to all. Barb F.

Thank you for good service. The beads are great. Hope you will have them in stock when I need them again. Debbie

Hi ! I just received the package and want to say that the beads are very very beautiful ! I'm very happy with them. The shipment was very fast... So a big thank you to all of you...Sandrina

Thanks so much! Its been a long time since I opened a box with that much turquoise in it all at once! (Thought I was going to have to grab a paper bag to breathe in; about took my breath away!!! LOL!) The Variegated Multi-Colored Turquoise stones sure are beautiful! Carol Y.

Your stones are always “pick of the litter” perfect; but, I had to let you know just how truly lovely my last order of red creek jasper was! Thanks for being there … and for supplying the best of the best. Barb

Hi there, I just received my order on Friday, so quick! I am THRILLED with the Sleeping Beauty turquoise strand that I purchased. The beads are just completely gorgeous!! Thanks so much! Caroline

Thank you SNS.  I will continue to be a loyal customer as your offerings are unique, and quality is top-notch.  I fully appreciate what you do!  'Til next time... Saleem

I received my order yesterday and just wanted to thank you. These Rainbow Casilica stones are unbelievably beautiful! Your stones have always been the best. I haven't worked for a while, so I haven't ordered for a long time, but I read the flyer and look every week. Angel

I received my order today and am delighted with everything, as usual. Thank you so much for matching up the Rhyolite beads - I really appreciate it! Best wishes for a wonderful Thanksgiving! Pennie B

I just wanted to thank you for the gorgeous turquoise in my package I received from you yesterday. I love shopping in your store and it is always difficult for me to put on the brakes because you carry such wonderful beads. Regards, Cindi M

Thanks for the turquoise order ... the 2 strands arrived today & they are both beautiful! Mary J

I am so impressed with the order I received today. Everything is always nice, but this order really stands out. The Sleeping Beauty, Arizona Wild horse, the lapis, cape amethyst, the pendants...and all the rest -- simply gorgeous and high quality stones. Looking forward to seeing your selections from Tucson. Carol C.

Just placed another order for American beads. I wanted to thank y’all for having a lovely selection of American gem materials. It can be hard to find them, but they have an authenticity that is often not available from other locations. In other words, treated to death. Keep up the good work, and we’ll create a demand for American gems. Best regards, Diane

Thank you for the beautiful beads! Every piece is matched and perfect. I know I can always trust you for all my beading needs. Sincerely, Kathy F

I received my order on Friday. I am obsessive about making pendants and unusual stones. I was very impressed! I am sure that I will place more orders with you! Brenda C

Received my Natural Blue Gem Nuggets today and couldn't be more pleased. They are beautiful! Robin A

I just wanted you to know that I received my green amethyst beads today. They are a beautiful green and the cutting/boring/polishing are nice and clean. Just the finishing alone will bring me back to you and you will always be my first go-to for gem beads in the future. Janice

I wanted to write you and let you know that not only am I shocked that it only took 2 days for my order to get to me, but I am SO PLEASED at the quality of the stones!!! You have now become my go-to source for all my gemstone beads. I'm so glad I found you! Judy D.

I just received a package of "goodies" from your Tucson trip. What lovely stones and cabochons ... you always have the best! Thanks Karen T

Thank you for offering loose stones. You will never know how much I have wanted to find someone who offered these. Your stones are always sooo very pretty and of exceptional quality it is just hard to order from anyone else. Keep up the good work. Diana R.

My last order has arrived & as always the quality is excellent. Very happy with everything thanks, Cheryl K. (Australia)

Although I purchased the tourmaline rounded nuggets a little while back, I just got around to making some things with it. The strands have the most lovely range of bright colors and are such nice quality. The necklaces and bracelets are for gifts, and I'm sure she will love them and be amazed how nice these stones are. Thanks for the best tourmaline I have bought. Carol C.

Thanks so much for the email. I really appreciate your following up on this. I am glad you reminded me about the 15% off sale. It’s early Sunday morning here and I am glad I have some time. Again, thanks for the communications. It’s wonderful to know there is hard working real live person at the other end of your website. Take care. Christine

Howdy, Thank you AGAIN! I recv'd new shipment of the Mexican turquoise plus the Kingman cab yesterday. Beautiful color. Thank you again - your choice in "matching" up the stones was wonderful. Prudence S.

Just want you to know that i absolutely LOVE my Danny Dale bracelet. I've never had a bracelet fit so well (small wrist)! Also your beads are incredible. I've been a bead artist for over 30 years, and finding sources that don't sell imported beads that all look the same has always been my gripe! Your stones are beautiful, unique and fairly priced. THANKS FOR ADVERTISING IN ONE OF THE COOLEST MAGAZINES ON EARTH (Cowboys and Indians)!!! Karen F.

Just a quick email to say my order arrived safely and again I am truly delighted with the quality and beauty of these stones. They are really inspiring and I'm sure I will be contributing a picture or two to your gallery very soon! Margaret K.

I just got the above invoiced order with 2 #144b faceted white pearls substituted for 1 white pearl #Pearl26 stick beads. The two pearls substituted are just wonderful and I appreciate receiving them in the place of the one stick pearl. Thank you for your assistance, your wonderful service and most of all your fantastic website. Keep up the good work! Jane C.

Thanks so much for your reply - I will be ordering some things this afternoon. By the way, I just love your jewelry and stones. You are one of the best websites to order from and I always look forward to getting my jewelry and stones. Thanks for your attention to detail and customer appreciation. Teri

Hey, Terry. I got my necklace today. I just LOVE it! It looks really nice with another piece I got from you - that is a necklace of small spiny oyster heishi. Thanks so much. Regards, Jackie

Just received the gorgeous sleeping beauty turquoise beads-thanks so much for sending them so quickly-can't wait to string them in a special way-you were right-they are gorgeous!! Love your large earrings-may need to order some soon- Thank you - Pauline M.

Your stones are gorgeous - I appreciate the unique, high-quality cabochons you offer. I'm a wire jewelry artist and am always looking for beautiful stones that are different from what everyone else offers! Thank you. Rena K.

Today I received order and I am so impressed. I have never seen this high quality of stones for a very long time. You have my business. Brenda P.

Best wishes, seasons greetings and a prosperous New Year. Many thanks for your great service and beautiful gems. Rosemary H. [England]

To all at stonesnsilver from 'delighted in England' Once again I must congratulate you all on your incredibly fast service and beautiful, quality stones. My last order I received this morning after 4 days. My partner, who was at the time watching the cricket, said I looked so happy undoing the little bags of gems, with 'WOW' each time, I looked like a little child at Christmas !! I am so glad I found your website when looking for the charoite stone pendant which I love and has been greatly admired. I have had several requests already for jewellery to be made from this stone, it is becoming very popular in England. The MS group we are in, love the bracelets I have made and they have almost become a group essential! Once again many thanks for both the fast service, having such a beautiful range of unusual gems, although it does make it hard to decide what to order. Must stop and get beading ! Rosemary H. [England]

I received my order and the turquoise is DROP-DEAD GORGEOUS! The fetish is too too adorable! Thanks so much for having such a FANTASTIC web site!! Nancy

Hi, your goods are always wonderful. Thank you and Best Regards. Akira O. [Japan]

I just wanted to thank you for the excellent service, communication and fast delivery of my order. The quality of the spiny oyster necklace was beyond expectation. Everything was great and look forward to more purchases soon. Thanks a lot, Matthew M.

Thanks! I appreciate your willingness to take my requests into account, but you know, you always pick out nice stones anyway, so I’ll be happy with what comes! Best, KP

I received my beads today and I'm totally blown away by their beauty--especially the Lapis beads! Lately, StonesNSilver is the only retail place I've purchased my beads from. Keep the designer strands coming as they are AWESOME!! Regards, Nancy

Your site is wonderful with a terrific selection of things that remind me so much of my recent (and first!) trip to Northern New Mexico. Daphene S.

Thank you, I received my beads just in time for some weekend beading. I was very satisfied with the beads and will order again. Thanks, Theresa.

I just placed my 1st order with your company and am looking forward to receiving it. I've been perusing your site for a while and have been very impressed with it and your selection of stones. They are different stones than I have previously had access to as well as different designs. Sincerely, Vivian H.

The necklace arrived safely today and is gorgeous. I don't think I have ever seen such fine heishe. The animal fetishes are wonderful also. Thank you for such prompt communication and processing of my order. I look forward to visiting you again. Troy W.

I want to thank you for your excellent service in fulfilling my recent order. It was a great surprise to receive it so quickly, and everything is exactly as described - wonderful quality! I will be shopping with you again. Karen O

Just FYI, I ordered a chunk of kyanite from you that I made into a pendant--I get so many compliments on the stone--so thanks!

Dear All at S&S, The lovely beads have arrived safely in Wimbledon already! I suppose I ought to get on with threading up these and the previous ones.....but they are so gorgeous maybe I'll just play with them for a bit first. Best wishes and many thanks - Nicola

I really enjoyed the quality of the first order and am looking forward to the new items I purchased today. Lynn C.

Hi, I received my order and the Turquoise is just fabulous! Now I'm so happy to come back and order more #8 centerpiece nuggets. Yayoko I. (Japan)

Hi - A quick mail to say thanks for the order which arrived safely a couple of days ago. The Tourmaline is beautiful. I am so pleased I found your web site, it was quite by accident ! I was looking for the Charoite nuggets having seen them in a shop in England. We belong to a M/S group, my partner having been diagnosed with the disease last year, the bracelets I have been making for them ( for symptoms of M.S.) have been very popular. It is now good to find stones not available from England. Be assured I will be ordering again soon. Many thanks for your prompt and efficient service. Rosemary H. (England)

Hi - I got my order today, very fast. Thank you so much, it is perfect. Kind regards, Kim V.

HI, I received my belt today and I LOVE it !! Thanks so much for the quick delivery. Some day I find this guy RJ and thank him too. Jules

I just wanted to send word that I received the Benny Ration and Clem Nalwood necklaces over the weekend and they are both just beautiful! I am very pleased. Thanks for all your help and keep that lovely jewelry coming!! Diana V.

I do a lot of shopping online and on Ebay and I am usually satisfied. But when I opened the ring I ordered from you yesterday, I was blown away by the beauty and quality of this ring. I can't thank you enough for offering such a wonderful product at such a great price. You guys ROCK! Sincerely, Chris C.

I received all my jewelry: the fabulous squash, Kirk Smith pendant, Estate pin. I love every one. Thanks so much. You're the best! Teresa S.

Just a note to acknowledge receipt of my order. My wife was thrilled with the branch coral as she had been looking for white coral strands for over a year and it must have been destiny that she should find it now as our 35th wedding anniversary is on 4th April and 35 years is the coral anniversary . Many thanks for your prompt service. Bob B.

Thanks for emailing me, Terry! I just ordered the 11 mm strand, and will look forward to making a necklace with them. I’ve been trying to find a strand for about 4 months now! And thanks for putting extra bubble wrap around my shipment – the last shipment was delivered in perfect shape! Best, Nicole.

The buckle was waiting for me at the hotel. Thanks so much, it's terrific. Hope to shop with you again soon. All the best, Brian

The goodies arrived here safe and sound, and I'm thrilled! The turquoise bracelet is even more dynamic than I imagined, and the earrings are gorgeous! Thank you again for making such wonderful treasures possible for those of us who are a very long way away from Arizona and New Mexico! All the best, D.

The beautiful earrings arrived today and I couldn't be happier! Thanks so much. Morgan.

The barrette arrived and is lovely! I'm wearing it now. Thank you. Dominica.

The beads are absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for the fast and friendly service! Barbara.

Hello! I received my bracelet. It's gorgeous! Thanks for your incredibly prompt shipping. I'll be a frequent visitor to your site. All the best, Teresa S.

Dear Folks, My order came today and I was concerned that the quality was not going to be as nice as I hoped. But Holy Cow! The branch coral strand was gorgeous! I paid over $700 for an identical one in a peach color here in Atlanta last summer! And the belt buckle was even better. I wore it today and got comments on it in 3 different stores! If this order is indicative of the quality of the rest of your stock, I'll become a new and faithful customer! Thanks, Kathy.

Love the substitute bead! Thank you for making a great choice. Once again the beads I ordered from you are fabulous! My customers will be very happy. Thanks again, Aimee, Downtime Designs.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you again. My order arrived late yesterday, and I'm thrilled with everything! Beautiful products, many items even better than I anticipated (and I had high expectations). I genuinely appreciate the time you took to make sure my order was processed when I was having technical meltdown. I greatly look forward to doing business with you again in the near future. Kindest personal regards, Zan C.

Thank you SO MUCH for the extra goodies, and for the strong packaging. I love the beads you sent! It’s funny you chose the purple crazy lace; I almost ordered some, and will in the future. I also really like the muscovite – the sparkles in it are very pretty. I make a lot of jewelry and sell quite a bit of it. I buy most of my beads from you, and will continue to do so. Keep up the good work! It is much appreciated! Best, Nicole.

I received my order today and was shocked but pleasantly surprised at how soon it arrived! The jewelry is absolutely beautiful and all pieces are quality with awesome stones. I can not thank you enough. You can be sure I'll order again -- probably in the next couple of days. Caroline B.

Thank you so much for the fast service - I love the jewelry piece!! I also loved the stamps on the package. Thanks again. Lanette Y.

HOWDY! Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know the "Dry Creek" turquoise stones made it here just fine. Boy, how beautiful. I couldn't wait to make my necklace. It came out great and I had a few small stones left so I mixed w/sml carnelian round beads & silver rondelles for a little bracelet. THANK YOU - THANK YOU - THANK YOU - THANK YOU for working w/me on this. You've made me so happy!!!!!! Prudence S.

hanks a lot Terry - as always, I'm very excited and looking forward to my "treasures"!! I'll say it again, I just love the beads I've received from you and the service. I'm glad I found your site. Shawne B.

I just wanted to drop you a line and express my satisfaction with the order I received. First, the service and packaging were excellent. Then, there are the stones. Great quality. I will definitely place more orders in the future (When I have made up some of what I already have, I'm running out of room). I especially like the fact that you carry some more unusual stones. Adrienne

BEFORE ORDERING: I would like to tell you that this was the first time I had visited your website and was thrilled with it; you certainly have a wonderful site with so many stones that I had never even heard of. I look forward to ordering from you in the near future; it was so exciting to see so many beautiful stones & beads at such reasonable prices and ranges. Thank you again and I look forward to hearing from you.

AFTER ORDERING: I received my order today and just had to let you know how pleased I am with the beads and stones; the turquoise is just beautiful and exactly what I was looking for and the crysophrase has such a wonderful color and will make a stunning piece of jewelry and finally the coral tubes were really great; the color is just what I hoped it would be. Thank you again for all of your help and fine service. I look forward to placing many more orders with you. Hope you have a good weekend. Jane C.

I received my order today, and as always, I am thrilled. All of my selections are absolutely gorgeous, but the Ocean Jasper barrels are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. Thanks so much! Kay

Again, I really like your website, and the price and quality of your beads are just wonderful – as is your service! Best, Nicole

I was so pleased with my last order, and the fast service! Thanks so much, and keep up the great work, you have fabulous beads. Pat

Dear StonesNSilver, Thank you, my order had the best quality beads I have been able to purchse on line so far. And believe me ,I have searched hard. My work is in Museum gift shops and the quality matters a great deal so many thanks. Pam M.
