I recently bought a jade bangle. The bangle arrived and it is absolutely gorgeous. The customer service was excellent. Any queries were dealt with promptly. I would definitely recommend Mays to my friends and family. Wai was an absolute gem.
I recently purchased a stunning Burmese Ruby ring from MAYS Exotic Gems for my Wife's birthday . The entire process was easy and Wai was very accommodating in facilitating super fast post to WA. His communication and follow up was very reassuring. I would have no hesitation in recommending Wai and his Jewellery business to anyone looking for a high quality product at an attractive price. Thank you Wai. Best wishes Martin
