Good morning
Please CLICK HERE ( note - the link was to this web page ) to see the beautiful Pendant my husband purchased from you for our 36th Wedding Anniversary in January 2011
The description of the Pendant and receipt are on this page
Unfortunately the setting has broken away and please see the attached photo to see what has happened:-



I did take it to a jeweller here in Cairns to look at and it fell out of the setting completely as he was looking at it !!
His advice was to return it to you and ask you to replace it
Given that for him to create a new setting for the stone would cost approximately the amount my husband paid initially, I believe his advice to be sound
We don’t go out too much and I would say I have not worn the necklace more than fifteen times in total
I trust that you will replace this item
Please forward me details of how you would like the Pendant returned
Kind Regards
Sharon Roneberg

Geoff to Gilletts Jewellers

Good Morning to You
My name is Geoff Roneberg and I live in Cairns NQ
After this note I am sending two photos
One is of a Peridot Pendant and the other is the Receipt
This purchase was made back on the 4th January 2011
The chain broke and we searched and searched but could not locate it
If so, could you send Details and Photos to me
My email address is ---
Hear from you soon
Regards and Thanks

Reply from Gillett's Jewellers

Hi Geoff
I'm sorry to hear the pendant has been lost
We do not have a Peridot Pendant of the same style
We do have a pendant in an oval shape with yellow gold and a small diamond ... the price is $300.00
Also I think we have heart shape pendants with a different gem stone
Please let me know your thoughts

Reply from Geoff

Firstly, it must be Peridot as that is my wife Sharon's Birthstone
Are you able to send a photo of the Oval Shaped Pendant with all the relevant details ??
And lastly, is it possible to have a Pendant made especially to match the lost one or would the cost be far too much
Appreciate your time

Reply from Gillett's Jewellers

Hi again, Geoff
We could make the pendant for you
but Don has checked and we are unable to get a peridot of the same size which was 10.00mm
The pendant could be made with an 8.00mm heart shaped peridot
The cost would be $320.00 and it would take approximately three weeks to have it made for you
Please let me know if you would like to proceed this way
If you would like to let me know your mobile number
and I will send through the image of the pendant we have in the oval shape

Reply from Geoff

Fantastic !! ... and I bet Sharon decides on the Heart Shape !!
Will talk with her tonight and then write again
The mobile number is 0419 679 537
You people have been Terrific and Thank You !!
