I gave up smoking years ago. It was extremely hard to do. They say that when you give up one addiction, something else has to take it's place. I would say the buying gems from GemSelect just might be it.
I have been always very skeptical about buying from internet stores, particularly itens such as gemstones, but Gemselect was a totally new good experience. The pictures are detailed, so you get exactly what you ordered, and their Customer Service is excellent, they are always in contact to make sure the whole process is going well. It in fact takes a little longer to receive any product in my country, but the have told me so before and my orders have arrived within the planned time and well...
