Just wanted to let you know that my lovely bi-coloured sapphire arrived today and it's even more beautiful than in the image on the website. 

Also, thank you for the rough cut sapphires, was a lovely gift and a nice surprise.      Saskia    Belgium

The package arrived today, and everything is GORGEOUS. Thanks so much. And what a lovely surprise getting these sapphire chips! So cool. I'll work them into photographs with the rings I make with your sapphires, so fun!     Michelle    USA

The sapphire cabs and opals are lovely! I’m really pleased with them. Many thanks again for all the time and effort you put into helping me make my selection. I’m looking forward to buying from the Capricorn Gems website again.           Caro     UK

I am incredibly pleased with the opals I received as well as the customer service Ian has provided. Ethical sourcing and quality are my top priorities and it is clear that Capricorn Gems shares these. Thanks so much! Can't wait to purchase the next batch.     Hanna    USA

Thank you so much, Ian. This is supremely helpful!

Opals arrived and they are stuuuunning. Wow. Your pictures are great, but I'm guessing no pictures could ever do these types of opals justice. Floored! I hope to be buying many more in the future. Also, thank you for the gift!!    Betsy USA
