"I am long overdue in writing you to express my gratitude for helping
me tremendously in making one of the largest, most confusing purchases I
have ever made.  Your guide, your email messages and being able to run
options by you made me feel extremely confident throughout the buying
process.  As you know I was able to get a diamond for considerably under
the wholesale price, had it independently appraised and it came out
better than expected.  I am very pleassed with my purchase but more
importantly my fiancee is ecstatic. 

        Thank you again for all your very valuable and reasonably-priced
advice.  I will recommend you as often as I can in the future."

        Best regards,
