As a first time GemSelect customer I can say that the website is thoughtfully designed and had pieces that I could find nowhere else. If the product delivered is as described then I will absolutely be making quite a few more purchases in the future.
First time visiting this site. I found it very well-organized which made it easy to find what I was looking for. I also like that the gem pictured was the actual gem you were buying and not a stock photo.
Very fast shipping from Thailand to Conus. Gems were as advertised. Compared to some other the other gem dealers on the web I've dealt with Gem Select are very professional. Will definitely do more business with this proprietor.
