Any time I want a really nice gem to put into a ring or a pendant, I go first to GemSelect. I have tried other vendors and the quality is not even close. Besides, I have to take what I can get from them. With GemSelect, I can do a search on size, shape, gemstone, color, cost, etc. or any combination. And their prices are very reasonable. Wow! All this and quick delivery, too!!
I have purchased from GemSelect before. I was impressed with the obvious care that was taken in the packaging and shipment of my gem. The gem itself was absolutely stunning...which is why I highly recommend GemSelect!
