Marie, if there is ever anything I want to purchase, I will go to you first. I could not have been more thrilled with my purchase. I have received so many complements on it. It is just unique and gorgeous – and not like anything you could find these days.  I LOVE it.

“[The Russian Old Believer’s cross with Cyrillic inscriptions] came today and it's lovely. Although I can't read a word of it, the words will be very legible to my friend. We talk by phone frequently and I'm so excited it will be hard to keep quiet. Fortunately, I don't want to steal my own thunder. Thanks for everything.

I just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying my ‘new’ Tiffany watch. The whole experience of being in your gallery and purchasing the watch was fun and everyone was thorough and helpful with the process. Thanks!
