"Ralph, I Received the ring the next morning from FedEx. Thank you very much for your help. You've been my jeweller of choice for 35 years and this is the first thing we had to get repaired. Good job. When I brought in Amber's jewellery for appraisal it made me realize what exceptional service you have provided to Amber and myself while we were living in a remote community in the NWT, with only a Sears catalogue outlet. You provided goods available only in big cities. Your craftsmanship and willingness to provide unique jewellery to a small town customer was the epitome of customer service. Your jewelry has been loved by Amber, and I always have enjoyed her appreciation in receiving your unique jewellery. Thanks for contributing in no small way to our relationship for the past 37 years. Having you provide high-quality unique jewellery on a phone call is the best example of customer service. I still remember when you trusted me with a package of opals to find a replacement for an opal that cracked in Amber’s ring. What kind of trust was that!!!! Thanks again, Charlie S."
