Dec 10  Greetings Nick--It was my good fortune to contact you from the internet to help identify the lone fork left me by my Grandmother. What I can't believe is that you contacted me within hours of my e-mail to you! Thank you so much for you time, and it's good to know that you have an assortment of fine silverware in the Madam Jamal pattern that I can acquire from you.  I'm so impressed by your knowledge and thoroughness in providing me information about the quality of silverware, and the specifics of design, like "French", etc.-- And, you knew the pattern immediately once I sent you the picture!  Please be assured I will be contacting you in the future, and it's good to know that you make yourself so available and helpful to customers. I'm glad you are in the business!!  My best to you, MM Indiana

Jul 2006 I was looking for some unusual pieces in a discontinued sterling pattern (my grandmother's) and Nick at Sterling Source put out an on-line request for me.  The next day he had found the pieces I needed with an individual in Chicago and suggested I deal with that person directly...Nick was very personable and willing to help even though he was not making a sale for his own company...that kind of customer service is rare these days.  Thank you, Nick!!!  It's nice to know there are people like you out there in cyberspace (or California as the case may be).

We love Virginia.  J

38 May 2007 Id prefer to work with smaller companies if possible.  Ive found that they give better service, are more forthright about the totality of the situation, and well, I prefer entrepreneurs as opposed to larger corporations and look for them whenever I can.  The fact that you included pictures, provided a full explanation, and were more than willing to refer me to another source to try to meet my needs sold me completely on your company.  Whatever the outcome of this particular transaction, I will be coming to you first for whatever I may need going forward.

Thank you again for the wonderful service and I will be responding as to a final decision soon.   B

Sep 2007 Just a quick note to let you know that the knives (Birks, Louis XV) arrived safely. I would have written sooner, but my computer was out for repairs. I love my i-mac, but there are glitches from time to time. The knives are perfect. I am very happy with them.   
Your kindness and generosity in sending all twelve is very much appreciated. Sterling Source is high on my list of great businesses.  Hope all is well with your car. DB Canada
