Thanks, Josh. Karen was delighted and so was I. The piece is stunning -- even more fabulous when she's wearing it!
Thanks again. Jay

We received the ring. It looks and fits great. Peter loves it. Thank you so much! Anne L.
Chris and Rick S. Oct. 22, 2011
Hello Josh -
The Chalmers Day piece arrived today, and it is extraordinary. My husband and I have spent some
serious time on the rez over the years (he worked at the Museum of Northern Arizona back in the
'70s before we were married), and he taught me the difference between the mediocre stuff and the
good stuff. This transcends the good stuff and and resides in the realm of the amazing stuff! I'm sure
we'll be repeat customers. Best regards from Chris and Rick S.
Ron O. Oct. 14, 2011
The ring arrived this morning as advertised no problems. It is beautiful and a perfect match for the
bracelet. The silver beads are exactly the same on both and the number 8 stones look great together.
Couldn't be more pleased. Thanks again. Ron O.
Sandy C. Oct. 12, 2011
Josh and Melissa, I bought one of Herman Smith's pieces from you this past week-end. I wanted you
to know that I love it and to thank you for being so nice. Your concern and willingness to please your
customer is unique. Sincerely, Sandy C.
Ron O. Sept. 28, 2011
Josh wanted to let you know the bracelet arrived on time. It is beautiful couldn't be more pleased.
Waiting for the ring to go with it. Thanks again. Ron O.
Suzanne P. Sept. 26, 2011
The ring arrived, and it is gorgeous. I love the turquoise; it has such depth and layers of color. Thank you for picking it out. The silver
work is awesome. The ring and bracelet make quite a statement. I appreciate the free shipping and your gift. Thank you for working with
me and for the good value.
Sandra D. Sept. 20, 2011
Received the ring today and have it on! It fit's perfectly. Thank you so much! Sandy
Larry and Linda K. Aug. 31, 2011
Josh and Melissa,
Thanks for turning the bracelet around and getting it shipped back so quick. Its been our pleasure doing business with you.

Larry and Linda K.
Catherine O. Aug. 23, 2011
I did receive it and am very happy with it; it’s lovely.
Thank you very much!
Marvin G. Aug. 13, 2011
Thanks again for working with me on the ring. Both the stone and craftsmanship are great.
And thanks for the prompt shipment.
Paul L. Aug. 13, 2011
I received the bracelet this afternoon, and I couldn't be more satisfied. The piece looks even better
than the photos, as you said, and was just what I was looking for. Look forward to doing more business with you in the future.
Sandra S. Aug. 5, 2011
Just wanted to let you know I received that amazing bracelet Monday—and love it. It looks great and feels great on!
Thanks so much for your help.
Joan G. Aug. 1, 2011
I picked up my gorgeous new ring today. It is awesome. Please convey to Sammie that I feel very
honored to wear a piece of his masterful jewelry.
Suzanne P. July 29, 2011
The Tolino bracelet arrived, and I LOVE it! It is everything that you said about it. Also, thank you
for the free shipping. Best wishes, Suzanne P.
Ron and Ann M. July 23, 2011
Hi-I received the ring and think it is a such a beautiful, unique ring and I really like it.
Ron and Ann M.
Mary D. July 8, 2011
This one is a treasure indeed.
I've been admiring your Montezuma stones for a long time and
am thrilled to own such a beautiful set.
Thanks, Mary D.
Susan N. July 7, 2011
These pieces are jaw-droppingly amazing. I kept trying to imagine them before seeing the pictures,
but both the bracelet and the ring have surpassed my hopes. I originally thought the stone would
look best on the far right, but I do remember leaving up to Kee's discretion and with the size of the
stone (didn't realize just how big it is) I think it is best that he centered it. The bezzles are both
perfect - exactly what I wanted.
Please pass on a zillion thanks to Kee for me - he's truly an amazing artist. I've never had such
beautiful things custom made for myself - what a great feeling!
Thanks so much again for the great customer service.
Lesa K. July 7, 2011
Absolutely gorgeous workmanship and stone! I couldn't be more pleased. Love the weight of the silver.
Rehan B. June 23, 2011
This ring is so so stunning! I am having a hard time believing it's real because I've never seen
anything so beautiful. I trust you completely and I am glad I mustered the courage to buy this as I
rarely ever shop for things online, especially with all the counterfeit turquoise being sold as real
everywhere. Thank you so much.
Shizuki N. June 16, 2011
Joseph Coriz bolo was received today. Thank you.!!
Cathleen M. June 15, 2011
I am blown away. The dog tag and ring are unbelievable. It brings tears to my eyes to even look
at it. I’ll treasure it for as long as I live. I’m still leaking tears…..The ring is a killer and I think
it was good we did it to wear w/ the dog tag and whatever else, because it will kind of make it look like
a set. The use of several colors and hues was genius….and the way he put it together…. The silver
work is understated, and pure artistry.
The Black Jade, is beyond my wildest imagination as to how it would look. It is a more substantial
piece then I looked at. It is absolutely beyond what I could have dreamed of. The cuff and the ring
and earrings are stand alone pieces in and of themselves. But the whole set is just unbelievable.
I know I’m going to treasure all of it. I don’t know how to tell them how pleased I am. I hope you can somehow let them know.
Truly works of art.
Cinthia S. June 4, 2011
OH MY…WOW!!! Can you hearing me screaming with delight, all the way, from the hills of Tennessee?
The belt/Buckle turned out BEAUTIFULLY! I WILL NOT INVEST (IN ANY THING) that I
cannot justify cost-per-use; I will certainly wear this, timeless work of art, for a long time.
Thank you for your follow-up, and insuring that my purchase arrived in a timely manner for my
photo shoot. You certainly made me a very happy customer!
Joan G. June 3, 2011
Dear Josh and Melissa,
The ring arrived and it is so beautiful. I am delighted.
Judith I. May 27, 2011
Just to let you know the ring arrived safe and sound. Love the stone, and it is the only piece I have with DD in it.
Cinthia S. May 21, 2011
I received my earrings, today, and I am THRILLED! I found a belt buckle that I want to purchase, today. I need the leather, too. I DO NOT want
this to get sold, please, call me...
Sam T. May 19, 2011
Josh: I received the Arland Ben ring. I am extremely happy with the Godber-Burnham stone and Arland's craftsmanship.
Simply put, the ring is beautiful, bright and eyecatching. Thanks - Sam
Gail T. May 9, 2011
What a beautiful ring ! Thanks again it is perfect!
Sam T. May 2, 2011
Hi Josh! I received the LN bolo. The weight of the bolo is impressive. I also like the thinner (not too thin) cord.
The Royston stone is beautiful! I will wear this and all my American Indian made jewelry with pride.
Josh, your selections are by the far the best on the internet and I also believe you have the competition beat on prices and certainly
customer service. Your customer service is second to none. All the rest are so far behind you in service and quick response times. It is
very irritating to wait for an answer on something, lousy description of pieces, no measurements and so on.
You, on the other hand, have outstanding descriptions, measurements and the all important quick response times. I always get my items
within two days. The others are four to seven days. It is good doing business with you and it will continue. Again, thanks for having such a
professionally run outfit. Sam
William F. May 1, 2011
The ring arrived yesterday. It fits perfectly, and is certainly a beautiful piece.
I have a real appreciation for rare, gem quality, turquoise and silver craftsmanship.
This ring has both. It surpasses anything I currently own.
Sam T. Apr. 29, 2011
Josh: I just received the rings. WOW!! My sister loves them all, but her favorite is the Leonard Nez Number Eight and the Calvin Martinez
Godber Burnham. The Leonard Nez is a large "man" ring for sure. I showed her the Arland Ben ring and stone he is currently working on.
My favorite ring right now is the Sammie K. Number Eight that I received last week. Man, Oh, Man, these rings are beautiful.
I also like item 2893, the Sammie K. Pilot Mountain ring. The shape of the stone and matrix are beautiful.
Again, thank you for the superb service. AND, they all fit perfectly. I really wanted my sister to see these beautiful pieces before she leaves.
Michele D. Apr. 21, 2011
Hi Josh, We received the bracelet yesterday and it is a perfect fit! It is beautiful and he loves it. Thank you again!!!
Cathleen M. Apr. 20, 2011
Holy cow.....everything is exquisite. The row and Calvin's are a perfect match in my book. The 3 stone Begay matches the huge Aztec.
The Aztec there just are words....it will go w/everything. I picked it up on the way to work... I'm going to lay it all out with some bracelets
from home and see how and what works together. I'm thrilled. Wow awesome.. The blue inlay fits beautifully. The black one I just love.
Call me at lunch... I'll text you when I take it.... Many thanks.
Sam T. Apr. 14, 2011
Josh: I received the Sammie Keskoli Number Eight ring today. That stone is absolutely beautiful. The color and spider webbing is exactly
what I wanted. Sammie, as always, did a masterful job with this ring. The bezel, wire, droplets and special stamping on the ring is that of a
master jeweler. I will be proud to wear this ring. As always, your service has been above all others. Now; I am excited to get the other five
rings I ordered. I will be celebrating Christmas in June with that special order Arland Ben ring. I keep looking at that Godber-Burnham
cabochon. Thanks - Sam
Wendy H. Apr. 11, 2011
Hello Josh, how amazing my bracelet arrived this morning, super quick, and astonishingly gorgeous it is. So happy, it is perfection in every
detail. I am so glad I found your Web site/shop and to also have found a delightful, helpful and patient person to buy from. This is one piece
of jewelry to really treasure and I will always love wearing.
Thanks again Josh for your help,
Cherie C. Apr. 7, 2011
Hi Josh, Hi Melissa!
Oh my, oh my, OH MY! The ring just arrived, and it's even more beautiful in person. It fits perfectly, and I can hardly take my eyes off it.
I absolutely love it, and I'll be wearing it out to dinner tonight, along with your wonderful Pilot Mountain necklace.
They're quite different, but they look great together. I should mention that Paul loves the ring just as much as I do, especially the color and
shape of the stone. Thank you so much for being such a pleasure to deal with. I'll be looking at your lovely site regularly, very much looking
forward to my next purchase.
Have a wonderful day.
Very best regards,
P.S. Thanks again. You're really wonderful!
Jory L. Mar. 24, 2011
Package was delivered. Karen loves the ring. Thanks so much for your assistance, and I will certainly be buying from you again in the future.
Linda A. Mar. 2, 2011
JOSH, LOVE THE NEW BRACLET THAT FRANK GOT ME, LOVE THE BABY BLUE COLOR, HOPE ALL IS WELL WITH YOU AND MELISSA, HOPE
TO SEE YOU GUYS SOON.
Duane T. C. Feb. 28, 2011
I received the bracelet yesterday, it was beautiful as you stated, as nice as the picture looked it did not do justice to this beautiful item.
I am very happy with the bracelet and doing business with turqoisedirect. I feel as though I made a new friend, that is a testament to your
customer service and the business you run. You would think that personal service would only be when you go into an establishment,
you have created that service over the phone. I will certainly recommend turqoisedirect to anyone inquiring about the bracelet and will
purchase items from you in the future for important events for my wife (birthdays, anniversaries ect).
This is the first piece of jewelry that I have owned other than a religious metal from my conformation as a kid. What a piece!!!!!!!!
Thank You again and I look forward to doing business in the Future.
Duane T. C.
Adrienne C. Feb. 28, 2011
You are a true gentleman and a trustworthy salesman!!! Thank you for getting the papers to me so quickly.
I am thoroughly enjoying my jewelry pieces and getting compliments.
I will treasure them and remember the wonderful buying experience with you. I hope to meet up with you again.
I have your contact. Give my best to Melissa.
Be well and blessings,
Fred W. Feb. 24, 2011
Just wanted to let you know that I got the ring today. It looks great and the resizing is perfect.
Thanks for your help.
Rob S. Feb. 14, 2011
Josh & Melissa, I received the Arland Ben ring. It’s really nice. Great craftsmanship and it fits perfectly.
Sam T. Feb. 12, 2011
I have purchased several items from Turquoise Direct. Their turquoise inventory is absolutely remarkable.
They represent the very finest in authentic Native American Jewelry and Native American Artists. Josh
provides a complete and well documented description of the items he sells. I consider Turquoise Direct
to be the "go to place" for Native American Jewelry. Josh and Melissa are wonderful on line sellers who
have made America's Jewerly, Authentic Native American Jewelry, their life's passion. I have yet to see any
better than this company.
Sam T. Jan. 27, 2011
Josh: First of all, thank you for sending the rings overnight express. Thank you for the extra special thought
and service. Now, for the rings - AWESOMEEEE!! They are beautiful! I do not know which I love better.
Sammie did an excellent job on the resizing. These are mine and I think they are at the top! Thank you so
much for a great buying experience. I am also enjoying the belt buckle and bolo from Sammie as well.
Again, thank you and I will continue to look over your inventory.
John P. Jan. 24, 2011
We done good! Presented the bracelet/birthday gift to her over the weekend. She really really likes! In
fact, she told me she never wants to take it off! You may think that I am kidding on that point, but she was
serious. But she was guessing it would not be good for her to shower with it on. Just wanted to confirm her
concern was correct. Take bracelet off to shower? I bet you hear it all, huh?
Thanks again for all your help and great service. Much appreciated.
Benjamin B. Jan. 24, 2011
I got this morning your very nice bolo. The work on this bolo is incredible !!!
Thank you so much for your time and efforts,
Lin. S. Jan. 15, 2011
My husband loves the ring. Fits his finger and my thumb so there may be an argument over who gets to
wear it when! The next issue is how to fund my wishlist on your site.
Benjamin B. Jan. 13, 2011
The postman arrived this morning with your wonderful horse buckle.
Thank you So much I love it.. .. .
Suzanne P. Jan. 11, 2011
My beautiful bracelet arrived. I love it and it fits! The workmanship and the turquoise are superb.

Mary E. Jan. 5, 2011
Hi got the bracelet and it is truly spectacular. I love it and it fits too...thank you again sooo much, please
email me when you get interesting pieces. Thanks again.
Cynthia T. Jan. 4, 2011
I just received the pieces today and they are gorgeous! I'm wearing the earrings and
ring right now. I'm glad we made the earrings into posts, because I'll be able to wear them more often this
way and they are truly stunning. I love the ring. Thank you so much, it was very exciting to open the box
and see the pieces in person.
All the best,
Patricia E. Jan. 3, 2011
I picked up the package this morning. Both pieces are lovely. Thank you...
Sam T. Dec. 22, 2010
Josh: Got the bolo/belt set this AM. Absolutely beautiful. They are wonderful creations and well made. The
bolo slides easily up and down the cord. It does not hang up or so tight that it slides with difficulty. The
tips are especially creative. I really like the way Sammie put the retailer on the back of the buckle and
the hook. Well set and securely fastened to the buckle. I made a very good purchase and I am very pleased.
The stones are beautiful, with the colors and shapes. I also like the way Sammie does his bezel work. You
have a very satisfied customer up here. Well worth the wait and it arrived with no damage to the outside
box. All is well! Life is good! Merry Christmas!
Ann D. Dec. 17, 2010
Hi Josh and Melissa --
I received the pendant, necklace, and earrings on Tuesday, right as scheduled, and they're
every bit as beautiful as I anticipated.
Thanks so much.
Hope you have a good holiday and I look forward to seeing you again next summer.
All the best,
Joye H. Dec. 13, 2010
I received my shipment today, and can't begin to tell you how happy I am with my new pieces. The inlay
and color on the earrings is so clean and clear, I know I'm going to get lots of wear out of them. The
bracelet is to die for - the color and quality on this piece is just unbelievable. I'd heard that Calvin Martinez
did outstanding work, and now that I've seen it I understand what people are talking about. I'm absolutely
thrilled with these pieces, and can only thank you for steering me in the direction you did.
You'll definitely be hearing from me again.
Have a WONDERFUL holiday season, and best wishes for the new year.
Jimmy O. Dec. 13, 2010
I got the cross this weekend. It looks great!!!
Mary D. Dec. 9, 2010
Got the package.
I love the custom bracelet. It just couldn't be better.
Such a unique piece, too. I've never seen anything like it.
Please thank Sammie for me...
The little Kee Yazzie piece is very sweet and well done.
Thanks so much for your help,
Michael B. Dec. 6, 2010
Hey guys, received the ring, it fits! It is absolutely beautiful! Have not shown anyone yet it is a surprise for
Lynn at Christmas. And again, thank you both for your time and efforts on the ring, it is perfect!
Keith J. Dec. 1, 2010
Thank you for reaching out to Leonard and for a stealthy experience. If only all the works could operate like you!
Have a great holiday season, and thank you for the "shipping" present!
Marjorie F. Dec. 1, 2010
Hello Josh. Just a quick note to let you know I received my Godber Burnham ring yesterday. It is a
fantastic piece, and I am very pleased with it.
Wishing you a great holiday season!
Anne H. Nov. 28, 2010
Hi Josh and Melissa -
The package arrived safely. Thank you.
The ring is everything you said, and then some! It's stunning...
As to the cuff - again, it's as you said. It's also a shade of turquoise I've never seen - very pretty, and the
silver is impressive. Really a nice heavy piece. I like everything about it, and will wear it a lot.
So, any time you have a piece that you would consider to be one of the best on the site please
keep me in mind!
With best wishes,
Larry H. Nov. 9, 2010

Mary D. Oct. 22, 2010
The buckle arrived.
It is gorgeous.
I have many pieces with Turq Mtn including several with the webbed Turq Mtn,
but none of the webbed have this dark coppery brown matrix.
It is quite distinctive.
Thanks again, Mary

seeing and purchasing from you again. When I get some pieces done I will show you the end result.
Cheryl A. Sept. 8, 2010
My 1940 Royston turquoise bracelet just arrived, and it is a thing of beauty. The cabochons are indeed
stunning in color, and the silverwork lovely in its detail.
It was a pleasure doing business with you, Josh.
Should you ever come across another gorgeous deep green or blue green turquoise piece, please let me know!
Martha C. Aug. 26, 2010

Fox bracelet every day. She called from Boston yesterday to tell me she rec'd compliments on it at the
Starbucks which she frequents.

Oh my...your gorgeous Ned Nez necklace and earrings just walked in the door and took over the whole
house. Talk about stunning! The turquoise itself is absolutely beautiful...dark and mysterious...and the
design of the necklace is just amazing. I love everything about it, and so does my husband, who took one
look and said, "Oh wow, I've never seen anything like that. Look at the workmanship!" Yes indeed, what
workmanship! The earrings are perfect too, and I'm so grateful to you for including them. We're all going
out to dinner together tonight, where I know we'll be a big hit.
Thank you so much for the great service, your generosity, and your beautiful jewelry. It's a real pleasure to
be dealing with you.
Very best regards, and thanks again,

The ring arrived and is absolutely beautiful. The turquoise has incredible depth and the setting is amazing as
well. The size was true to the measurements given which made me really happy as this is a ring for my
index/middle fingers. Very comfortable as well. You have a new customer who will be a repeat customer :-)
Thank you so much!
Jackie D. Dec. 22, 2009
My order arrived yesterday and I couldn't be happier. The quality of your pieces, the fairness of pricing,
attention to detail, and friendly service are greatly appreciated!
Mary R. Dec. 21, 2009
I received the custom ring this morning. It is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! I can't say enough nice things
about it. The workmanship is fantastic and the fit is perfect. Watson is an awesome artist!
Susan M. Dec. 21, 2009
Just wanted to let you know my goodies arrived yesterday and WOW! I love them both - especially the
Joseph Coriz bracelet. It is truly magnificent - such beautiful craftsmanship. And the silver is nice and
heavy - a very substantial piece. I already know it's going to be one of my favorites - plus a great addition
to my collection.
Thanks again for all you do - it's always a pleasure.
Happy holidays and new year.
John B. Dec. 14, 2009
Amazingly, I received the bracelet today. Thanks so much for the speedy shipment. It arrived in good
shape and looks quite nice; I'm sure my wife will love it.
Linda F. Dec. 11, 2009

Thank you very much!
Bernard B. Dec. 10, 2009
Hey Josh!!!!!! Got the earrings and they are absolutely Gorgeous. You have
done it again my friend. I couldn't be happier with them. Like everything
else I have gotten from you I'm so pleased. Again I want to thank you
for your courtesy. Tell Sammie how pleased I am with them and I wish
you all the best the Holiday season has to offer.
Stay Safe, God Bless, Best Regards Your Friend Bubba
John D. R. Dec. 8, 2009
Received the custom Ned Nez bracelet today, wonderful work that does the stone I provided justice. Does this
make it custom piece #6? I could not be happier with the service you provide. Give Melissa my regards.
John D. R.

Thanks for the free shipping too!
William S. Nov. 17, 2009
Dear Josh and Melissa,
We have received the fantastic custom pieces of Dry Creek-they are just beautiful. We are so pleased
with them. The necklace lies on Cloe's neck just perfectly. These pieces also look so good with the bracelet
that we bought last year.
It was great to see you again this year-we trust that all is going well with you both. We hope to see you
again next year.
All the best,
Debbie H. Nov. 17, 2009
Like the items I have purchased from you in the past, I am loving the new bracelet and cross that I got
at the end of October.
Hope you and Melissa are doing well - expect to see you on my next trip to Santa Fe and I will certainly
keep tabs on your website. I have directed several people to your site.
Pamela S. Nov. 16, 09
Thank you Josh. I'm so looking forward to gifting this piece to a very dear friend...sugulite is what
sold me...THANK YOU!
Susan M. Nov. 13, 2009
Hi Guys, A belated THANKS! It was great seeing you both again and we enjoyed shopping and spending
time with you-it's always such a pleasure. Take care and look forward to seeing you the next time I'm in
Santa Fe. Be Well, Sue
Barbara C. Oct. 30, 09
The cuff arrived safely today.
It is beautiful.
Thanks for having this created.
Please thank Calvin Martinez for me.
Linda F. Oct. 29, 2009
I rec'd the box on Tuesday. The jewelry is beautiful and fits great. I don't think I will ever take the
Martinez piece off! Even though it is heavy it does not feel like it at all.
Ann B. Oct. 23, 09
Hi Josh: Received the ring today and it is beautiful. Thank you. Hope to see you another time.
Joe P. Oct. 15, 09
The ring came today and it is beautiful. My wife loves it. Thanks again.
Bob B. Sept. 25, 09
I got the ring this am. It looks and feels great.
Thanks for everything.
Kim M. Sept. 20, 09
I love the ring, it fits perfectly!! Next time you see Arland Ben let him know I love it. Thanks
Brian M. Sept. 7, 09
Hello, I'm very impressed by the blue gem and blue gem spiderweb silver cuffs and rings I've seen on your
website. How do I get on the list to find out about new blue gem turquoise items?
Thanks, Brian M.
Joye H. Aug. 27, 09
I wanted to let you know I received the cuff this morning. The turquoise is absolutely phenomenal! I didn't
expect the cabochons to be quite as substantial as they are, and they definitely give this bracelet some heft
which I love! I also like the fact that you can feel some of the matrix, which adds to it's earthiness. The
understated silverwork really makes the stones pop, and I love the color.
Many thanks for making beautiful pieces like this available to those of us who can't make it to the
southwest. I've got your site favorite placed, and will be in touch with you again.
Richard W. Aug. 29, 09
As promised, the ring arrived this afternoon, well before 3:30, and is a HIT!
Many thanks for your follow-through and courtesy.
Will be purchasing from Turquoise Direct again.
Susan M. Aug. 20, 09
I returned from Sedona late Tuesday and finally got over to the Post Office yesterday...and of course - I
love the bracelet!
The workmanship is fantastic and the stones are so beautiful - plus it fits like it was made just for me.
As alway, its a pleasure doing business with you. I look forward to seeing you guys in October.
Patricia E. Aug. 20, 09
The pendant arrived today. Thanks for sending it so promptly. We come to Santa Fe every year to see a
few operas and make it to the Santo Domingo feast day. See you next summer!
Peg F. Aug. 18, 09
The bracelet arrived, and it is a good one. It has such clean lines and excellent craftsmanship. I know the
intended party will love it. I am very impressed with his work, and I know they will be as well. Thanks for
your extra work with this, and as usual it is a one of a kind piece. Take good care of yourselves.
Marvin G. Aug. 14, 09
The shipment arrived today. Nice ring! Please put me on your mailing list.
Paula M. Aug. 14, 09
Hi Josh! I got the Chalmers Day bracelet yesterday, and I must say it is simply EXQUISITE!!! Thank you
All the best and warm regards,
Sally R. Aug. 7, 09
Thanks for the follow up. I have received it and the stone is beautiful!
Tom B. Aug. 3, 09
Good morning Josh,
The ring arrived over the weekend - thanks again for your prompt and courteous service. Leon Martinez's
Carico Lake piece is beautiful and the ring fits perfectly. All of your advice was helpful and much
Peg F. July 20, 09
I picked up the bracelet on Saturday, and it is everything I thought it would be and more. The color of the
stones is a beautiful blue with a golden tan matrix. This is my very favorite turquoise color. I knew that I
would like the silver work since I am familiar with his pieces, but the turquoise was exceptional. Thank
you as always for your excellent customer service. It was a pleasure to work with you again.
Kelley C. July 13, 09
The ring has arrived and it's gorgeous Josh! Thanks again!
Lauraine H. July 13, 09
I received the necklace today and you are right it is absolutely gorgeous! I am really pleased with it and the
earrings. Thank you. Of course I would like to be on the mailing list for new arrivals!
Thanks again and keep in touch,
Debbie D. July 12, 09
Hi Josh, I just wanted to let you know the gorgeous bracelet arrived safe and sound. I love it!! Of course
we knew that right?? Thank you so much for the fabulous customer service - it is really a gorgeous piece
and I will treasure it! I am in Tucson right now on a business trip, and did some touring of local jewelry
shops and have received a number of compliments on it from shop owners.
Many thanks again, Debbie
Jim J. Tempe, AZ July 2nd 09
I've been meaning to write or call you about the ring that was made for me.
It is simple in design, carries with it some older Native American customs (whirling logs), along with a fabulous stone!
It is perfect in every way, and I thought I had better let you know that.
Please pass along this message to Gilbert Nelson with a sincere thanks for his expertise in making this ring something I will cherish forever.
Thanks a heap!
PS- I have received several comments on it already. One guy asked me if I would sell it!
Brad W. June 23, 09
My daughter was very happy with her ring. Please pass on my regards to the artist.
Bernard B. June 20, 09
Hey Josh !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The ring is absolutely gorgeous. It is plain enough to
make it look antique, and definitely not gaudy. I just love it. I don't know how he
does it. Its like he is making the ring for himself, everything is just the way I want
it, its like I made it for myself. Thank you very very much. I couldn't be happier
with it. Tell Sammie how much I like it and thank him from the bottom of my heart.
He has made me very very happy. Again thank you very very much, and like I told you
I consider you a friend, even though I never met you in person. So stay safe, and lets keep in touch.
Susan M.-June 17,2009
I am so glad you let me know about the larger turtle - he is really wonderful and so is the ring. It's great that you work with Joseph - his work is fantastic.
The earrings are also very nice - they are a gift for a colleague and I know she'll love them.
Once again - I'm 110% satisfied and look forward to doing business with you again - it's always a pleasure.
Hi to Melissa!
Elmer B.-June 12,2009
Josh, Good morning from the Plains of North America,
I am compelled to write and give praise to yourself for the two Ned Nez bracelets and also to Mr. Nez who also deserves kudos.
They are Nizhoni beyond all compare, a perfect fit, with superb craftsmanship. I am thrilled beyond description. Terrific!
Thank you so very much!
Elmer B.-June 5, 2009
Thank you so very much, am looking forward to receiving the piece.
Can not wait to get out your way again, we will most certainly visit and would love to take you and yours to dinner, it shall be our treat and privilege and your choice of establishments.
As a retired career Salesman, I personally appreciate the Sales acumen shown by yourself, it's very gratifying to experience someone in your business who truly knows what he is doing. I am delighted to know you, it's an honor. Your personal attitude shows why the native jewelry you choose is so very nice.
Again, Thank You very much. We shall give you a call when the piece arrives.
Donna M.-June 5, 2009
Hi Guys! Just wanted to let you know that Steve wore his buckle and belt to church last Sunday and it looked great! We are both very pleased with it. Take care, Donna
Susan M.-June 1st, 2009
Both pieces are fabulous...no doubt that I would love them!
Hope all is well....
Gwen C.-May 28, 2009
Hi- Could I get on the notification list... The quality of these stones and the workmanship is like nothing else I've seen! Thank you! -Gwen
Mary D.-May 18, 2009
The bracelet has arrived.
The stones are beautifully matched and very gemmy.
I love Calvin's design on this one. It complements the stones very well.
Thank you so much, Mary
Carol L.-May 16, 2009
I just received my ring. It's beautiful! It fits well and looks great on my hand. My husband says he's impressed and he doesn't always comment on my jewelry. I've seen alot of turquoise rings but none have stood out like this one does. Thank you so much.
I'm glad I found you on the internet.
William M.-May 4, 2009
Wow! I love Sammie's creative and traditional work. This is a wonderful bolo. I love it... I am a pastor and am told--a healer. I do try to help people as I can, whenever I can, with as much love and compassion as I can.
In my work, I will wear Sammie's bolo as a mandala--a healing image for people to look at, focus on and find peace. It is absolutely beautiful. And now I move in that way thanks to Sammie's beautiful and sensitive work.
And thanks to you too, Josh. You packaged the bolo and buckle with such care. I love the way you packaged the belt buckle in the little pouch. That's beautiful too.
With much thanks,
Elizabeth T.-May 1st, 2009
Just received the bracelet, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! it's absolutely gorgeous, just breathtaking. Thank you for your promptness, and I hope to meet you in person some time soon.
Derec C.-Apr. 26, 2009
Josh/Melissa thanks again Saskia loves the ring and your service was beyond all expectations. Will be back and tell others. Derek
Barbara W.-Apr. 24, 2009
Got the custom earrings and they are beautiful. Thanks so much for making this happen.
PS. My friend may want some too.
Keith Z.-Apr. 22, 2009
I just received my Darrell Cadman rare Red Mountain Spiderweb turquoise belt buckle last evening. I am very particular, and have been looking for this type of belt buckle for several years. I just never found the one that let me say "that's it" until now. This buckle is an outstanding piece of Native American turquoise/silver craftsmanship! I will have a custom belt designed which will compliment it. I hope to wear this buckle when I show my horse "Trigger Jr", an actual descendant of Roy Roger's Trigger Jr.!
Thank you for your professional and expeditious service. Until the next order....
Patricia M.-Apr. 16, 2009
Hi Josh! I picked the custom ring up yesterday and WOW! It is gorgeous! Thank you!
Arland Ben's work is wonderful. -Pat
Michele N. -Apr. 8, 2009
Thank you for shipping so quickly-----it arrived in good order & is absolutely beautiful (as expected). Out here on the East coast we find it difficult to find such quality NA jewelry so it's nice when I find a site that sells such quality items from the source.
Thanks & I'm sure you'll be hearing from me again (as I now have your terrific web site on my desktop!)
Bernard B.-Mar. 20, 2009
Hey Josh!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got the bracelet today and it is absolutely perfect. The weight, the size, everything is absolutely gorgeous. This was well worth waiting for. I could never have imagined something this beautiful. Tell Sammy he out did himself and thank him from the bottom of my heart, and thank you Josh for all you have done in getting me this bracelet. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. Words just can't express my appreciation for all you guys have done for me, again I thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your Friend Bubba
PS: Keep in touch!!
John D. R. - Mar. 16, 2009
To say I am happy is an understatement. In 16 years of purchasing Native American Jewelry I have not seen the quality of your products anywhere. This is the 5th custom piece you have had made for me, and they get more comments than the rest of my jewelry combined
Lynn B. Mar. 3, 2009
Hi Josh! I just received my Gilbert Nelson Royston ring yesterday. It's gorgeous! While I always love traditional jewelry, the contemporary jewelry is very fresh. I am really pleased and will be back for more. Thanks so much for the lovely packaging as well.
Kelley C. -Feb. 28, 2009
Love the ring, Josh! It's been great working with you again! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and thanks again!
Susan M. -Feb 23, 2009
I got it and of course...LOVE IT! It's really a wonderful piece - very simple, with just enough design work to the silver.
Thanks again & regards,
Sunshine R. Feb. 22, 2009
I wanted to say "Thank you" for the quick shipment and for packing each piece so carefully. They are beautiful!
Please let me know when you have any new Herman Smith butterfly pieces available.
Jane M. -Feb. 6 2009
Josh, You are an exceptional business man. Nothing better than good communication
and keeping your customer informed.
My very best to you,
Tom B.-Feb. 5, 2009
Hi Josh-the ring arrived yesterday and is indeed as described - beautiful craftsmanship.
Thanks for the wonderful service that you provided. Tom
Akihro Y. Feb. 2, 2009
Dear Mr. Josh Chaney,
I received the Ring created by Calvin Martinez.
I am very pleased with this ring very much.
This ring has beautiful turquoise
and classical style silver work...excellent.
I thank you so much.
Best Regards, Akihro
Meg S. - Jan. 29, 2009
The bracelet arrived yesterday, and it's a beauty. It fits perfectly, like it was made for me, and I can't get over how gorgeous the stones are. Blue Gem is one of my favorite types of turquoise, but I've never seen any that achieves the deep teal color of the end stones on this bracelet--wow!
Paul E. Jan. 23, 2009
Just arrived home and opened the box.I am more than moved and awed. The buckle created by Mr. Nez far exceeds my expectations in every way.
Am at a loss for words, which for me is most unusual. I am thrilled. If you would Josh..express my deepest gratitude to Mr. Nez. Please let him know that this work will be appreciated not only by myself but also all of the artists that I work with that have only been able to see his creations in photos.
Most importantly Mr. Nez's unique vision will continue to ignite the creative response of artists from many disciplines. A legacy of inspiration. Thank you both very much.
Josh, I look forward to doing business in the future.
Laura C. -Jan 19, 2009
Thanks Josh.. I'm actually wearing the varascite earrings right now--as well as the Albert Jake cuff bracelet.. and yes-I'm real pleased. To me this isn't just wearing jewelry--it's art... and the stones in their settings tie both earth and hand made art together. I was always uncomfortable with store bought jewelry- it's expensive and mass produced to be all alike. In a week or so I teach a class about Frieda Kahlo--and will wear them again-but I don't usually need an excuse-as I wear them a lot..
The pieces I purchased-are beautifully unique-even if there were more than one bracelet or set of earrings in a series--because each stone has it's own personality and variety that transcends to a beholder-as well as the thoughts of the jeweler's fabrication with sterling.. Mall/store bought jewelry can't ever have a soul like that.
Oddly--I had almost the exact same conversation with someone just the other day-about this very same thought process..and they universally thought the same about jewelry and art.
Thank you for the follow up.. and I'll look back at your site..
Becky B. Jan. 17, 2009
I meant to write you sooner. I received the New Lander Varascite ring on Tuesday. I would have had it Monday, but I wasn't there to sign for it (USPS is very fast!). I am so happy with the ring. It is beautiful. I love your website and will keep looking in to see what's new.
Susan M. Jan. 15, 2009
I was so pleased to find my package waiting for me when I arrived home yesterday – thanks for the speedy delivery.
As I suspected – both pieces are awesome! In fact I’m wearing the Terry Martinez piece today and it’s so comfortable and easy to wear.
Once again I’m 150% satisfied and as always, it’s a great pleasure to work with you.
Jim J. -Jan. 11, 2009
Thanks for the nice note. I had been eyeing those two for some time now, and just decided that I should "just do it". I noticed the next one in your inventory (the one featured in the magazine) also sold. Yes, I would be interested in a ring (with a gem quality #8 stone).
My other half REALLY LIKES the smaller of the two bracelets that I got for her.
The larger one was for me of course.
John R. - Jan. 5, 2009
Hey Josh!!--- I'm at work, as usual, and the ring just came 5 minutes ago---and you're right, it is awesome. I've been reading a bit about what it takes to do silversmithing, and Sammie is a true artist. The stone is just awesome, too... How many people can say they have matching number 8 stones on a cuff bracelet and a ring... I like things that are unique, and this set certainly is.
Next up for me--- maybe next year, if there are any more number 8 stones available might be a bolo made by Sammie. I see you sell them as set including a belt buckle.
Jesus S. -Jan. 2, 2009
Thanks Mr. Chaney,
Everything arrived on time and my wife was quite pleased with the rings.
John D. R. -Jan 1st 2009
Ring came in today. Looks good!
Kelley C. -Dec. 30, 2008
The bracelet is awesome! Absolutely magnificent workmanship and the fit is perfect! Thank you so much for you help with this and please thank Mr. Begay for me, too! Wishing you a bright new year!
All the best,
Suzanne P. -Dec. 25, 2008
The earrings arrived two days before Xmas and are wonderful! Thank you. Wishing you and your family health and happiness in the New Year.
Kevin B. -Dec. 20, 2008
Could not resist the matching bracelet to go with the earrings.
Frank A.-Dec. 15, 2008
Hi Josh- I just got a chance to see the piece and it is truly beautiful- I can't believe the stones-- they were impressive when you first sent me the photo of them but when you see them against the silver - it's amazing. I'll be looking forward to my Christmas gift- Seriously thanks again- Merry Christmas to you guys- Frank
Kevin B. -Dec. 15, 2008
Josh and Melissa,
I just placed an order online for Item 451.
Thanks and have a happy holiday.
Danielle P. -Dec. 12, 2008
Good day Ms & Mr Chaney,
I meant to let you know how stunning was the piece I bought from you. The Dry Creek/Sugilite bracelet is superb. I will not hesitate to purchase another item or refer you. Thank you very much!
Kevin L. - Dec. 12, 2008
Thank you for altering the bracelet to fit 6". I can honestly say that this was the best customer service I have ever had making a purchase, making it a very enjoyable experience, and I will definitely come back. Thank you and I will recommend your site to everyone interested...especially after they see the bracelet. Thank you.
John R. Dec. 9, 2008
Josh---- thanks so much for the info on my old stuff... it is extremely helpful, and makes me appreciate them more...I had no clue as to what seafoam was, since you mentioned it before, so I had some breaks today at work, and found alot of info on it, and was really intrigued. I like stuff from nature, I don't care for man messing around with things that Nature created. I love interesting rocks and plants. That is why I was attracted to your site, from the ad in Cowboys and Indians which I just started getting. I knew you were more interested in quality and craftsmanship than just your run-of-the-mill Indian jewelry.
The Number 8 from Sammie K continues to just amaze me. The fit is good, the stone just glows--- yeah--- it glows, and the silver work is astonishing.
Talk to you again.... I am really pumped about this bracelet.
John R. -Dec. 8, 2008
The Sammie K bracelet is awesome... not too flashy, the stone is so incredible, I just gasped when I unwrapped it. It's also a strong masculine type design which appeals to me....
I'll send you a deposit on the new ring from Sammie K..............thanks so much!!!!
