Beautiful and functional

Wednesday 02 May, 2018

We were lucky enough to visit Ruth and Terry and bought 3 lovely pieces of jade. We are so pleased with all three, but I'm partial to the shepherd's whistle I bought. I wear it all the time and not only does it receive compliments, I USE it - for fun (I can now play tunes on it!) and to get my husband's attention when he can't see me. I'm amazed that something that beautiful is also functional. How cool is that????

Love&Light

Hi Ruth&Terry, Thank you so much for the beautiful Koru pendant it's a gift for someone who really deserves it. I didn't know how it all worked with shipping and questions about the necklace it self and you answered all my questions from your warm kinded heart. I was so happy when the pendant arrived and I sent it the same day on it's way to the person who the gift is for. So thank you again for the beautiful necklace and all you did Warm regards Diana Adang

Invaluable help and advice

Monday 30 October, 2017

I can’t thank Ruth enough for her helpful e mails and advice whilst looking for a pounamu for my son before he left New Zealand. Nothing was too much trouble and her advice was invaluable. I felt as if I was communicating with a dear friend. If only there were more lovely people like Ruth in this world. I know my son will always have the connection with his pounamu and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you did and for the good wishes you sent for my son.

Pleasurable Experience

30th April 2020

I needed a special piece to give to my granddaughter for her high school graduation. I live in the US and so does she. I wanted to give her something different, pretty, useful, and remind her of her heritage through me (5th generation New Zealander). Just ordered a beautiful piece from the website, easy process, quick response to my email questions, this is how I like to buy, kudos to Ruth for making this a pleasurable experience
