My citrine and topaz gems ordered from gemselect were amazing. Service was fast and the details on the website were a very good match. I would recommend gemselect.com to everyone. I will for sure be back to buy more stones too.
Stone exceeded my expectations except in regards to size. Smaller than what I had anticipated. Further education needed on my part in regards to the pear shape. Maybe that had something to do with it. Plan to contact customer service regarding return/exchange for larger size. Beautiful gem and fun to watch the tracking from Thailand.
