Why our Turquoise is different ...  
a difference you can feel. 

 

Our turquoise is not dyed Howlite or inexpensive turquoise made to look like valuable real American turquoise. We sell real American and Mexican turquoise. Our turquoise is incomparable to anything else you will find on the Internet today and is natural color, never dyed or enhanced. We certify that in writing to you. Because we process our own turquoise and know what happens to it from the mine to you, we can certify the authenticity, quality and color of our beads. And, we offer a "no risk" buying guarantee. If you are not happy with your beads, we will buy them back from you. 

My bead supply company has been on the Internet since 1995. I've been here for so long because our customers come back knowing we care, and I personally care about them. I care about you! I’m not a big corporation where every time you call you get somebody different or somebody who doesn’t care or know about turquoise. 

I take a personal interest in each and every one of my customers. Why do I? Because every piece you, the designer, creates is a personal creation of importance to your buyer … whether they are buying as a gift or for their own personal adornment ... and a true testament of turquoise as an investment that they will keep forever.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT US...
 

Hi Lin!  I keep coming back for that beautiful turquoise when I can. Yours is the best and your prices are the least crazy. But it doesn't take a psychologist to figure that out. ;-)  ~ Merry, Ph.D. - Calif.

What lovely beads! Thank you so much for your excellent service and high quality merchandise. I am more than pleased! ~ Cheryl, WI

Hi Lin, I recently placed an order with you for the small Keishi pearls and the Apatite splinter beads. I could not be more pleased!  The pearls are so pretty and look awesome with the magnificent blue color of the Apatite stones. I have never been disappointed with your products or service, and I look forward to creating more jewelry with your items! Thanks a million! ~ Athena , OH

Just a note to tell you I received my package today and am so pleased with not only the remarkable service but the stones are beautiful. Thank you very much.. you're on my Favorites list! ~ Deborah L., APO

I saw that you sent the parcel without waiting for the payment, I don't know if that was on purpose or not but I am honored by your trust ! Thank you again for helping me with these purchases and enabling me to enjoy your 12 days sale and combine shipping :) I love turquoises, I am not a seller myself and only use the stones for my personal jewelry that I make for myself, my friends and family; but so many so called turquoise on the market are actually dyed howlite.... it is difficult to source quality turquoise, especially here in France. Many sellers I meet here in gemshops are selling dyed howlite and they don't even know themselves that it is not turquoise ! so I am so glad you have this website, because I know that everything you sell is outstanding quality.
In my opinion you are the best and most trusted seller on the web ! Keep up !  
Caroline R. ~ France

I've received the package today!!!!!! Waowwwwwwww, they are fabulous! Really thank you! I'm so happy! Have a good day! ~ Anne-Marie, Switzerland 

Received the turquoise and it is stunningly beautiful. Many thanks. ~ Dona, Australia  

Thank you! The beautiful beads have arrived safely and I am most happy with my purchase :) just thought I would drop you a line to say thank you! ~ Kellie, Australia 

Hi Lin, I've been trying to figure out how to leave some "feedback" to let you know that I received  the turquoise beads that I ordered from you and am VERY pleased!  SO, beautiful!!  I don't do Facebook so I didn't know how else to reach you. I just did notice that you've included your email address on the packing slip... so now I can say "Thank You"! ~ Sonja, WV

Just wanted to say I love the turquoise. I was very nervous paying so much money for something unseen on the opposite side of the world, and then the little hiccup with the post didn't help…but it was worth it! I've just made a beautiful necklace with the beads, combined with sterling silver and it just feels magnificent to wear it. Thanks again and I will definitely make another purchase soon. Kind regards. ~ Julie , Australia  

I just received my first order from you and I am thrilled, I love everything but my favorite is the Sleeping Beauty turquoise, wow, it spoke to me, I think I might have to create something for myself with it. I can't wait to order more. Thank you so much.
Kind regards. ~ Beau 

Received the beads yesterday late afternoon, and they are really beautiful. Can't wait to get started creating a special combination and unique look with them. Thanks so much for your continuing quality
that you offer all us Turquoise lovers! Warmest Wishes ~ Dona, GA

I received my parcel, and I absolutely love the Castle Dome nuggets. Whaow, this blue, it is like small pieces of blue sky fallen on earth ! Thank you very much for this fast shipping and for your general friendliness. I just posted a note on your Facebook page to say how much I appreciate your products and customer service. Thank you again!  ~ Caroline, France

Thank you for giving such great information on your site. I can buy with confidence knowing that I'm getting authentic turquoise, my favorite stone. ~ Cindi H. 

I received my order today and I have to say I was amazed at how pretty the different types of turquoise are. I usually buy from (removed) gems and beads, and their sleeping beauty turquoise is pricey, and I have never seen the green type before, which I really like immensely. You have a very satisfied customer now who will only buy her turquoise from you in the future. thanks again.
~ Cindi Sue, TN

Just couldn't help myself, saw the amazing castle dome & just had to jump in with another order. l think these will sell quickly. Don't know how l missed them before. l have also ordered another of the same Sleeping Beauty SBLS as it is just SO STUNNING, l will make one long fabulous necklace out of the 2 of them. Lin. Love your turquoise, its all stunning. Thanks
~ Cheryl, Australia

Just wanted to tell you how much I like the BLUE Campo Frio turquoise! Received the strand yesterday & it's really gorgeous! So nice to find turquoise that looks blue on the computer screen and actually IS blue when you see it in person! Beautiful stones!  
~ Karen, NH 

The turquoise that you carry is the most beautiful turquoise that I have ever seen. The quality is exceptional...the color is stunning! The turquoise is even more beautiful in person, than the images posted on the site (and the images are beautiful) every time I receive an order my jaw literally drops open. The customer service is like no other... helpful, knowledgeable and courteous!
~ Sharon, CA 

I received my order of turquoise, silver & Heishi today, and am extremely pleased with your products and service! The Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is just gorgeous. I also appreciate the personal touches… 
~ Rick, NY
