The ring is fantastic it will be a great present, the purchase went well and your company were faultless in arranging and delivering so quickly.
It was a great experience, many thanks.
I wish you and your team a very Merry Christmas.
I just got to Switzerland this afternoon and RAN into my friend's house to get my ring. I was so excited on the way here I could hardly sit still...
I absolutely LOVE the ring and can't stop looking at it. It is even more beautiful than I had imagined, and definitely worth the wait!! Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for all your help! I'll be contacting you again shortly to get working on that wedding band...

Along with Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore, South Korea has recently seen a major increase in the number of tourists who arrive in its airports each year. This boom in Southeast Asian tourism can be attributed to the increasing costs of travel in other notable tourist destinations, such as Europe, the improving political climate in many Southeast Asian cities, and the rise of the East in general. Whatever the reasons may be, there is no doubt that more and more travelers are becoming aware of the unique experiences that can only be had in South Korea and its neighboring countries.
As any South Korean can tell you, the Hallyu, or “Korean Wave,” is a widespread cultural movement that has brought aspects of South Korean culture—its music, food, television and clothing and jewelry styles—across Asia. South Koreans are by and large passionate about their unique culture, and welcome the opportunity to showcase it to tourists from other Asian countries, Europe and the United States. Despite its proximity to China, South Korea has developed its own distinctive aesthetic style—a style which is most visible in the ornately decorated, beautiful temples and in the homes of Koreans at every economic level. As a tourist, you may be looking for a way to bring home a piece of that distinctively South Korean style, and you can best do this with South Korea jewelry.
Unlike the South Korea jewelry made for export (the country is one of the world’s leading producers of inexpensive costume jewelry), the South Korean rings, bracelets and necklaces sold in a genuine South Korea jewelry store that caters to the local market are of surprisingly exquisite quality, with craftsmanship and aesthetic elegance to match any ring available in a Western shop. In the older neighborhoods of Seoul, you can find dusty old South Korean jewelry shops that have been around through at least three governments, but are still selling the same traditional gold and jade South Korean jewelry, decorated with the ancient, traditional symbolic motifs that still resonate with young, modern South Koreans today. If you are looking for a traditional South Korea engagement ring, consider a ring set with quality South Korea diamonds, but if you just want a beautiful piece of jewelry to commemorate your trip, gemstones like blue jade are easier to find and more unique to the country.
Before buying jewelry in South Korea, it is a good idea to take some basic precautions to avoid disappointment later on. Unless you are in a major tourist center, most stores will only accept the local currency, the won, so be sure to trade in enough dollars for won at a reputable currency exchange center. Some more modern South Korea jewelry stores also accept credit card, which is a good option if you are buying something more valuable, like a South Korean engagement ring. No matter how you pay for it, make sure you get a tax refund voucher with your purchase; on your way out of the country, turn in your voucher to have most of your taxes refunded.
